HURRY KANE

like he didn't hear one word of the sweet remarks meant for his ears.
Johnny Abbott pulled me aside.
" Listen," lie says. " This kid ain't yellow and he ain't wore out. They's something wrong here."
By this time Dave had found his voice and he yelled at Kane : " You so-and-so so-and-so! You're going to stay right in there and pitch till this game is over ! And if you don't pitch like you can pitch, I'll shoot you dead tonight just as sure as you're a yellow, quitting ! "
We'd forgot it was our turn to bat and IIildebrand was threatening to forfeit the game before he could get Bull Wade to go up there. Kane still stood in front of us, staring. But pretty soon Dave told young Topping to run out to the bull pen and warn Carney and Olds to both be ready. I seen Topping stop a minute alongside of Kane and look up in the stand where Kane was loolcing. I seen Topping say something to Kane and I heard Kane call him a liar. Then Topping said something more and Hurry turned white as a sheet and pretty near fell into the dugout. I noticed his hand shake as he took a drink of water. And then he went over to Dave and I heard him say :
" I'm sorry, Boss. I had a bad inning. But I'll be all right from now on."
" You'd better ! " says Dave.
" Get me some runs is all I ask," says Kane.
And the words wasn't no sooner out of his mouth when Bull smacked one a mile over Claymore's head and came into the plate standing up. They was another tune on the bench now. We were yelling for blood, and we got it. Before they relieved Bonner, we'd ,got to him for three singles and a double-mine, if you must know-and ihe score was tied.
Say, if you think you ever seen pitching, you ought to have watched Kane cut them through there the rest of that day. Fourteen strike-outs in the last eight innings ! And the only man to Teach first base was Kramer, when Stout dropped an easy fly ball in the fifth.
Well, to shorten it up, Bull and Johnny Abbott and myself had some luck against Pierce in the seventh innings. Bull and Johnny scored and we licked them, 6 to 4.
In the club-house, Dave went to Hurry and said :
" Have you got anything to tell me, any explanation of the way you looked at the start of that game?"
