ROUND UP

waukee. He had no ticket, but no one knew the difference. The conductor remained in the caboose.
On a night six months later, Midge hurried out of the " stage , door " of the Star Boxing Club and made for Duane's saloon, two blocks away. In his pocket were twelve dollars, his reward for having battered up one Demon Dempsey through the six rounds of the first preliminary.
It was Midge's first professional engagement in the manly art. Also it was the first time in weeks that he had earned twelve dollars.
On the way to Duane's he had to pass Niemann's. He pulled his cap over his eyes and increased his pace until he had gone by. Inside Niemann's stood a trusting bartender, who for ten days had staked Midge to drinks and allowed him to ravage the lunch on a promise to come in and settle the moment he was paid for the " prelim."
Midge strode into Duane's and aroused the napping bartender by slapping a silver dollar on the festive board. " Gimme a shot," said Midge.
The shooting continued until the wind-up at the Star was over and part of the fight crowd joined Midge in front of Duane's bar. A youth in the early twenties, standing next to young Kelly, finally summoned sufficient courage to address him.
" Wasn't you in the first bout? " he ventured.
" Yeh," Midge replied.
" My name's Hersch," said the other.
Midge received the startling information in silence.
" I don't want to butt in," continued Mr. IIersch, "but I'd like
to buy you a drink."
" All right," said Midge, " but don't overstrain yourself."
Mr. Hersch laughed uproariously and beckoned to the bartender.
" You certainly gave that wop a trimmin' tonight," said the buyer of the drink, when they had been served. " I thought you'd kill him."
" I would if I hadn't letup," Midge replied. "I'll kill 'em all." "You got the wallop all right," the other said admiringly. " Have I got the wallop? " said Midge. " Say, I can kick like
a mule. Did you notice them muscles in my shoulders? "
" Notice'em ? I couldn't help from noticin"em," said Hersch.
" I says to the fella settin' alongside o' me, I says: `Look at them
shoulders ! No wonder he can hit,' I says to him."
