ROUND UP

Stephen was wild to tell Stella what had happened, but he was afraid this Balch might not like the poem as well as Roberts had; might not think it worth publishing, and she would be disappointed.
He would wait until he actually had it in print, if ever, and then show it to her.
He didn't have to wait long. In less than a week he received by mail from New York a copy of the Standard, and in George Balch's column was his verse with his name signed to it and a caption reading "To Stella-A Maysville Minstrel Gives His Mrs. a Birthday Treat."
For the first time in his career at the gas office, Stephen quit five minutes early and almost ran home. His wife was as excited as he had hoped she would be.
" But why does he call you a minstrel?" she asked. " He must have heard some way about that night at the Elks."
Stephen told her the rest of the story-how Roberts had predicted that the poem would attract the attention of magazine editors and create a demand for his verses at a dollar a line. And he confessed that he had other poems all ready to send when the call came.
He had brought two of them home from the office and he read them aloud for her approval :
" 1. The Lackawanna Railroad.
The Lackawanna Railroad where does it go? It goes from Jersey City to Buffalo. Some of the trains stop at Maysville but they are few Most of them go right through Except the 8:22 Going west but the 10:12 bound for Jersey City That is the train we like the best As it takes you to Jersey City
Where you can take a ferry or tube for New York City. The Lackawanna runs many freights Sometimes they run late But that does not make so much difference with a freight Except the people who have to wait for their freight.
Maysville people patronize the Interurban a specially the farmers So the Interurban cuts into the business of the Lackawanna, But if you are going to New York City or Buffalo The Lackawanna is the way to go.
Will say in conclusion that we consider it an honor That the City of Maysville is on the Lackawanna.
