ALIBI IKE

" The key ain't home," says Ike. " I lent it to one o' the other fellas and he's went out o' town and took it with him."
" Couldn't you borry another key off'n the landlady? " Carey ast him.
" No," he says, " that's the only one they is."
Well, the day before we started East again, Ike come into the clubhouse all smiles.
" Your birthday? " I ast him. " No," he says.
" What do you feel so good about? " I says.
" Got a letter from my old man," he says. " My uncle's goin' to get well."
" Is that the one in Nebraska ?" says I.
" Not right in Nebraska," says Ike. " Near there."
But afterwards we got the right dope from Cap. Dolly'd blew in from Missouri and was goin' to make the trip with her sister.

V
Well, I want to alibi Carey and I for what come off in Boston. If we'd of had any idear what we was doin', we'd never did it. They wasn't nobody outside o' maybe Ike and the dame that felt worse over it than I and Carey.
The first two days we didn't see nothin' of Ike and her except out to the park. The rest o' the time they was sight-seein' over to Cambridge and down to Revere and out to Brook-a-line and all the other places where the rubes go.
But when we come into the beanery after the third game Cap's wife called us over.
" If you want to see somethin' pretty," she says, " look at the third finger on Sis's left hand."
Well, o' course we knowed before we looked that it wasn't goin' to be no hangnail. Nobody was su'prised when Dolly blew into the dinin' room with it-a rock that Ike'd bought off'n Diamond Joe the first trip to New York. Only o' course it'd been set into a lady's-size ring instead o' the automobile tire he'd been wearin'.
Cap and his missus and Ike and Dolly ett supper together, only Ike didn't eat nothin', but just set there blushin' and spillin' things on the table-cloth. I heard him excusin' himself for not havin' no appetite. He says he couldn't never eat when he was clost to the ocean. He'd forgot about them sixty-five oysters he destroyed the first night o' the trip before.
