ROUND UP

you right now because I see that my dream won't never come Yrue."
She left him sitting in the restaurant and he was the only perbon there outside of the waiters. But after he'd sat a little whilehe was waiting till the first shock of his disappointment had wore off-a black-haired bird with a waxed mustache came up to him and asked if he wasn't Hurry Kane, the great pitcher. Then he said:" I suppose you'll pitch again tomorrow," and Kane said yes.
" I haven't nothing against you," says the stranger, " but I hope you lose. It will cost me a lot of money if you win." " How much? " said Kane.
" So much," says the stranger, " that I will give you twenty thousand dollars if you get beat."
" I can't throw my pals," said Kane.
" Well," said the stranger, " two of your pals has already agreed to throw you."
Kane asked him who he referred to, but he wouldn't tell. Kane don't know yet, but I do. It was Dignan and Stout, our shortstopper and first baseman, and you'll notice they ain't with our club no more.
Hurry held out as long as he could, but he thought of Evelyn and that honeymoon in Europe broke him down. He took five thousand dollars' advance and was to come to the same place and get the balance right after the game.
He said that after Johnny Abbott had give him that talk at the breakfast table, he went out and rode around in a taxi so he could cry without being seen.
Well, I've told you about that terrible first innings. And I've told you about young Topping talking to him before he went down to the bull pen to deliver Dave's message to Carney and Olds. Topping asked him what he was staring at and Hurry pointed Evelyn out to him and said she was his gal.
" Your gal's grandmother! " said Topping. " That's Evelyn Corey and she belongs to Sam Morris, the bookie. If I was you, I'd lay off. You needn't tell Dave, but I was in Ike Bloom's at one o'clock this morning, and Sam and she were there, too. And one of the waiters told me that Sam had bet twenty thousand dollars on the White Sox way last spring and had got six to one for his money."
Hurry quit talking and I started to bawl him out. But I nouldn't stay mad at him, especially when I realized that they was
a fifty-three-hundred-dollar check in my pocket which I'd never have had only for him. Besides, they ain't nothing crooked about him. He's just a bone-headed sap.
