ROUND UP

" A girl wrote it," says Ike. " That's my friend's sister, writin' for him."
" Didn't they teach writin' at this here college where he went? " says Carey.
" Sure," Ike says, " they taught writin', but he got his hand cut off in a railroad wreck."
" How long ago ?" I says.
" Right after he got out o' college," says Ike.
" Well," I says, " I should think he'd of learned to write with his left hand by this time."
" It's his left hand that was cut off," says Ike ;" and he was lefthanded"
" You get a letter every day," says Carey. " They're all the same writin'. Is he tellin' you about a different ball player every
time he writes? "
" No," Ike says. " It's the same ball player. He just tells me what he does every day."
" From the size o' the letters, they don't play nothin' but double-headers down there," says Carey.
We figured that Ike spent most of his evenin's answPrin' the letters from his "friend's sister," so we kept tryin' to date him up for shows and parties to see how he'd duck out of 'em. He was bugs over spaghetti, so we told him one day that they was goin' to be a big feed of it over to Joe's that night and he was invited.
" How long'll it last? " he says.
" Well," we says, " we're goin'. right over there after the game
and stay till they close up."
" I can't go," he says, " unless they leave me come home at eight bells."
" Nothin' doin'," says Carey. " Joe'd get sore."
" I can't go then," says Ike. " Why not ?" I ast him.
" Well," he says, " my landlady locks up the house at eight and '
I left my key home."
" You can come and stay with me," says Carey.
" No," he says, " I can't sleep in a strange bed."
" How do you get along when we're on the road? " says I.
" I don't never sleep the first night anywheres," he says.
" After that I'm all right."
" You'll have time to chase home and get your key right after the game," I told him.
