against him. Carey'd looked at Ike's discards and then he says :
" This lucky bum busted two pair."
" No, no, I didn't," says Ike.
" Yes, yes, you did," says Carey, and showed us the two fours.
" What do you know about that? " says Ike. " I'd of swore one was a five spot."
Well, we hadn't had no pay day yet, and after a wile everybody except Ike was goin' shy. I could see him gettin' restless and I was wonderin' how he'd make the get-away. He tried two or three times. " I got to buy some collars before supper," he says.
" No hurry," says Smitty. " The stores here keeps open all night in April."
After a minute he opened up again.
" My uncle out in Nebraska ain't expected to live," he says. " I ought to send a telegram."
" Would that 'save him? " says Carey.
" No, it sure wouldn't," says Ike, " but I ought to leave my old man know where I'm at."
" When did you hear about your uncle? " says Carey.
" Just this mornin'," says Ike.
" Who told you? " ast Carey.
" I got a wire from my old man," says Ike.
" Well," says Carey, " your old man knows you're still here yet this afternoon if you was here this mornin'. Trains leavin' Cincinnati in the middle o' the day don't carry no ball clubs."
" Yes," says Ike, " that's true. But he don't know where I'm goin' to be next week."
" Ain't he got no schedule? " ast Carey.
" I sent him one openin' day," says Ike, " but it takes mail a long time to get to Idaho."
" I thought your old man lived in Kansas City," says Carey.
" He does when he's home," says Ike.
" But now," says Carey, " I s'pose he's went to Idaho so as he
can be near your sick uncle in Nebraska." " He's visitin' my other uncle in Idaho."
" Then how does he keep posted about your sick uncle?" ast
Carey.
" He don't," says Ike. " He don't even know my other uncle's
sick. That's why I ought to wire and tell him."
" Good night ! " says Carey.
" What town in Idaho is your old man at? " I says. Ike thought it over.
