CHAMPION

MIDGE KELLY scored his first knockout when he was seventeen. The knockee was his brother Connie, three years his junior and a cripple. The purse was a half dollar given to the younger Kelly by a lady whose electric had just missed bumping his soul from his frail little body.
Connie did not know Midge was in the house, else he never would have risked laying the prize on the arm of the least comfortable chair in the room, the better to observe its shining beauty. As Midge entered from the kitchen, the crippled boy covered the coin with his hand, but the movement lacked the speed requisite to escape his brother's quick eye.
" Watcha got there ?" demanded Midge.
" Nothin'," said Connie.
" You're a one legged liar! " said Midge.
He strode over to his brother's chair and grasped the hand that concealed the coin.
" Let loose ! " he ordered. Connie began to cry.
" Let loose and shut up your noise," said the elder, and jerked his brother's hand from the chair arm.
The coin fell onto the bare floor. Midge pounced on it. His weak mouth widened in a triumphant smile.
" Nothin', huh? " he said. " All right, if it's nothin' you don't want it."
" Give that back," sobbed the younger.
" I'll give you a red nose, you little sneak ! Where'd you steal it?"
" I didn't steal it. It's mine. A lady give it to me after she pretty near hit me with a car."
" It's a crime she missed you," said Midge.
Midge started for the front door. The cripple picked up his
crutch, rose from his chair with difficulty, and, still sobbing, came
toward Midge. The latter heard him and stopped. " You better stay where you're at," he said.
