HURRY KANE

came to losing him altogether, and they don't know the real story of that final game last year, which I'll tell you in a little while.
First, about pretty near losing him: As soon as Dave seen his possibilities and his value to us, he warned the boys not to ride him or play too many jokes on him because lie was simple enough to take everything in dead earnest, and if he ever found out we were laughing at him, he might either lay down and quit trying or blow us entirely. Dave's dope was good, but you can't no more prevent a bunch of ball players from kidding a goofer like Kane than you can stop the Century at Herkimer by hollering " Whoa" He was always saying things and doing things that left him wide open and the gang took full advantage, especially Bull Wade.
I remember one night everybody was sitting on the porch and Bull was on the railing, right in front of Kane's chair.
" What's your first name, Steve? " Bull asked him.
" Well," says Kane, " it ain't Steve at all. It's Elmer."
" It would be!" says Bull. "It fits you like your suit. And that reminds me, I was going to inquire where you got that suit."
" In Yuma," said Kane. " In a store."
" A store ! " says Bull.
" A clothing store," says Kane. " They sell all kinds of clothes."
" I see they do," said Bull.
" If you want a suit like it, I'll write and find out if they've got another one," says Kane.
" They couldn't be two of them," says Bull, " and if they was, I'll bet Ed Wynn's bought the other. But anyway, I've already got a suit, and what I wanted to ask you was what the boys out West call you. I mean, what's your nickname? "
" ` Hurry,"' says the sap. "` Hurry' Kane. Lefty Condon named me that."
" He seen you on your way to the dining-room," said Bull.
Kane didn't get it.
" No," he said. " It ain't nothing to do with a dining-room. A hurricane is a kind of a storm. My last name is Kane, so Lefty called me 'Hurry' Kane. It's a kind of a storm."
" A brainstorm," says Bull.
" No," said Kane. "A hurricane is a big wind-storm."
" Does it blow up all of a sudden? " asked Bull.
" Yeah, that's it," says Kane.
" We had three or four of them on this club last year," said Bull. "All pitchers, too. Dave got rid of them and he must be figuring on you to take their place."
