ROUND UP

" No town at all," he says. " But he's near a town." " Near what town? " I says.
" Yuma," says Ike.
Well, by this time he'd lost two or three pots and he was desperate. We was playin' just as fast as we could, because we seen we couldn't hold him much longer. But he was tryin' so hard to frame an escape that he couldn't pay no attention to the cards, and it looked like we'd get his whole pile away from him if we could make him stick.
The telephone saved him. The minute it begun to ring, five of us jumped for it. But Ike was there first.
" Yes," he says, answerin' it. " This is him. I'll come right down."
And he slammed up the receiver and beat it out o' the door without even sayin' good-by.
" Smitty'd ought to locked the door," says Carey. " What did he win? " ast Carey.
We figured it up-sixty-odd bucks.
" And the next time we ask him to play," says Carey, " his fingers will be so stiff he can't hold the cards."
Well, we set round a wile talkin' it over, and pretty soon the telephone rung again. Smitty answered it. It was a friend of his'n from Hamilton and he wanted to know why Smitty didn't hurry down. He was the one that had called before and Ike had told him he was Smitty.
" Ike'd ought to split with Smitty's friend," says Carey.
" No," I says, " he'll need all he won. It costs money to buy collars and to send telegrams from Cincinnati to your old man in Texas and keep him posted on the health o' your uncle in Cedar Rapids, D. C."

And you ought to heard him out there on that field ! They, wasn't a day when he didn't pull six or seven, and it didn't make, no difference whether he was goin' good or bad. If he popped up in the pinch he should of made a base hit and the reason he didn't was so-and-so. And if he cracked one for three bases he ought to had a home run, only the ball wasn't lively, or the wind brought it back, or he tripped on a lump o' dirt, roundin' first base.
They was one afternoon in New York when, he beat all records. Big Marquard was workin' against us and he was good.
