ROUND UP

about your friend, that Miss Corey? You certainly can't call hei plump, yet you're anxious to meet her." " She's got class! " said Kane.
Johnny laughed that off, too. This gal of his, that he's married to now, she's so far ahead of Corey as far as class is concernedwell, they ain't no comparison. Johnny, you know, went to Cornell a couple of years and his wife is a college gal he met at a big houseparty. If you put her and Evelyn beside of each other you wouldn't have no trouble telling which of them belonged on Park Avenue and which Broadway.
Kane kept on moaning more and more about his gal out West and acting glummer and glummer. Johnny did his best to cheer him up, as he seen what was liable to happen. But they wasn't no use. The big rube "lost " his fast ball and told Dave he had strained his arm and probably wouldn't be no good all season. Dave bawled him out and accused him of stalling. Kane stalled just the same. Then Dave soft-soaped him, told him how he'd burn up the league and how we were all depending on him to put its in the race and keep us there. But he might as well have been talking to a mounted policeman.
Finally, one day during the last week at Fort Gregg, Johnny Abbott got homesick himself and put in a long-distance call for !,is g-al in New York. It was a rainy day and him and Kane had been just laying around the room. Before the call went through Johnny hinted that he would like to be alone while he talked. Kane paid no attention and began undressing to take a nap. So Johnny had to speak before an audience and not only that, but as soon as Kane heard him say " Darling " or " Sweetheart," or whatever he called her, he moved right over close to the phone where he wouldn't miss nothing. Johnny was kind of embarrassed and hung up before he was ready to; then he gave Kane a dirty look and went to the window and stared out at the rain, dreaming about the gal he'd just talked with.
Kane laid down on his bed, but he didn't go to sleep. In four or five minutes he was at the phone asking the operator to get Minnie Olson in Yuma. Then he laid down again and tossed a while, and then he sat up on the edge of the bed.
" Johnny," he says, " how far is it from here to New York? "
" About a thousand miles," said Johnny.
" And how far to Yuma ?" said Kane.
" Oh," says Johnny, "that must be three thousand miles at least."
