ROUND UP

" I want my money," cried the boy. ,
" I know what you want," said Midge.
Doubling up the fist that held the half dollar, he landed with all his strength on his brother's mouth. Connie fell to the floor with a thud, the crutch tumbling on top of him. Midge stood beside the prostrate form.
" Is that enough? " he said. "Or do you want this, too?" And he kicked him in the crippled leg. " I guess that'll hold you," he said.
There was no response from the boy on the floor. Midge looked at him a moment, then at the coin in his hand, and then went out into the street, whistling.
An hour later, when Mrs. Kelly came home from her day's work
at Faulkner's Steam Laundry, she found Connie on the floor, moaning.. Dropping on her knees beside him, she called him by name a score of times. Then she got up and, pale as a ghost, dashed from the house. Dr. Ryan left the Kelly abode about dusk and walked toward Halsted Street. Mrs. Dorgan spied him as he passed her gate.
" Who's sick, Doctor?" she called.
" Poor little Connie," he replied. "He had a bad fall." " How did it happen? "
" I can't say for sure, Margaret, but I'd almost bet he was knocked down."
" Knocked down !" exclaimed Mrs. Dorgan. " Why, who-? "
" Have you seen the other one lately?"
" Michael? No, not since mornin'. You can't be thinkin' "
" I wouldn't put it past him, Margaret," said the doctor gravely. "The lad's mouth is swollen and cut, and his poor, skinny little leg is bruised. He surely didn't do it to himself and I think Helen suspects the other one."
" Lord save us !" said Mrs. Dorgan. " I'll run over and see if I can help."
" That's a good woman," said Doctor Ryan, and went on down the street.
Near midnight, when Midge came home, his mother was sitting
at Connie's bedside. She did not look up.
" Well," said Midge, "what's the matter?"
She remained silent. Midge repeated his question.
" Michael, you know what's the matter," she said at length.
