ALIBI IKE

" Oh, I guess she's all right," Ike says. " Besides, I was tired o' the stone. When a girl asks you for somethin', what are you goin' to do ? "
Tile started out toward the desk, but we flagged him.
" Wait a minute! " Carey says. " I got a bet with Sam here, and it's up to you to settle it."
" Well," says Ike, "make it snappy. My friend'll be here any minute."
" I bet," says Carey, " that you and that girl was engaged to be married."
" Nothin' to it," says Ike.
" Now look here," says Carey, " this is goin' to cost me real money if I lose. Cut out the alibi stuff and give it to us straight. Cap's wife just as good as told us you was roped."
Ike blushed like a kid.
" Well, boys," he says, " I may as well own up. You win, Carey."
" Yatta boy! " says Carey. " Congratulations 1"
" You got a swell girl, Ike," I says.
" She's a peach," says Smitty.
" Well, I guess she's 0. K.," says Ike. " I don't know much about girls."
" Didn't you never run round with 'em? " I says.
" Oh, yes, plenty of -em," says Ike. " But I never seen none I'd fall for."
" That is, till you seen this one," says Carey.
" Well," says Ike, " this one's 0. K., but I wasn't thinkin' about gettin' married yet a wile."
" Who done the askin'-her? " says Carey.
" Oh, no," says Ike, "but sometimes a man don't know what he's gettin' into. Take a good-lookin' girl, and a man gen'ally almost always does about what she wants him to."
" They couldn't no girl lasso me unless I wanted to be lassoed," says Smitty.
" Oh, I don't know," says Ike. "When a fella gets to feelin' sorry for one of 'em it's all off."
Well, we left him go after shakin' hands all round. But he didn't take Dolly to no show that night. Some time wile we was talkin' she'd came into that other parlor and she'd stood there and heard us. I don't know how much she heard. But it was enough. Dolly and Cap's missus took the midnight train for New York. And from there Cap's wife sent her on her way back to Missouri.
