ROUND UP

" Me? " said Midge, " I feel all right. What do you mean, how do I feel? "
" I mean," said Tracy's manager, "that we're mighty anxious
to win, 'cause the boy's got a chanct in Philly if he cops this one." " What's your proposition? " asked Midge. " Fifty bucks," said Tracy's manager.
" What do you think I am, a crook? Me lay down for fifty
bucks. Not me!"
" Seventy-five, then," said Tracy's manager.
The market closed on eighty and the details were agreed on in short order. And the next night Midge was stopped in the second round by a terrific slap on the forearm.
This time Midge passed up both Niemann's and Duane's, having a sizable account at each place, and sought his refreshment at Stein's farther down the street.
When the profits of his deal with Tracy were gone, he learned, by first-hand information from Doe Hammond and the matchmakers at the other "clubs," that he was no longer desired for even the cheapest of preliminaries. There was no danger of his starving or dying of thirst while Emma and Lou Hersch lived. But he made up his mind, four months after his defeat by Young Tracy, that Milwaukee was not the ideal place for him to live.
" I can lick the best of 'em," he reasoned, " but there ain't no more chanct for me here. I can maybe go east and get on somewheres. And besides- "
But just after Midge had purchased a ticket to Chicago with the money he had " borrowed " from Emma Hersch " to buy shoes," a heavy hand was laid on his shoulders and he turned to face two strangers.
" Where are you goin', Kelly? " inquired the owner of the heavy hand.
" Nowheres," said Midge. "What the hell do you care?" The other stranger spoke :
" Kelly, I'm employed by Emma Hersch's mother to see that you do right by her. And we want you to stay here till you've done it."
" You won't get nothin' but the worst of it, monkeying with me," said Midge.
Nevertheless, he did not depart for Chicago that night. Two days later, Emma Hersch became Mrs. Kelly, and the gift of the groom, when once they were alone, was a crushing blow on the bride's pale cheek.
