CHAMPION

"Well, he ain't really got no home. He came from Chicago and his mother canned him out o' the house for bein' no good. She give him a raw deal, I guess, and he says he won't have nothin' to do with her unlest she comes to him first. She's got a pile c' money, he says, so he ain't worryin' about her."
The gentleman under discussion entered the cafe and swaggered to Tommy's table, while the whole room turned to look.
Midge was the picture of health despite a slightly colored eye and an ear that seemed to have no opening. But perhaps it was not his healthiness that drew all eyes. His diamond horse-shoe tie pin, his purple cross-striped shirt, his orange shoes and his light blue suit fairly screamed for attention.
" Where you been?" he asked Tommy. " I been lookin' all over for you."
" Set down," said his manager.
" No time," said Midge. " I'm goin' down to the w'arf and see "em unload the fish."
" Shake hands with my brother Dan," said Tommy.
Midge shook with the Holyoke Haley.
" If you're Tommy's brother, you're 0. K. with me," said Midge, and the brothers beamed with pleasure.
Dan moistened his lips and murmured an embarrassed reply, but it was lost on the young gladiator.
" Leave me take twenty," Midge was saying. " I prob'ly won't need it, but I don't like to be caught short."
Tommy parted with a twenty dollar bill and recorded the transaction in a small black book the insurance company had given him for Christmas.
" But," he said, " it won't cost you no twenty to look at them fish. Want me to go along? "
" No," said Midge hastily. " You and your brother here prob'ly got a lot to say to each other."
" Well," said Tommy, " don't take no bad money and don't get lost. And you better be back at four o'clock and lay down a Vile."
" I don't need no rest to beat this guy," said Midge. " He'll do enough layin' down for the both of us."
And laughing even more than the jest called for, he strode out through the fire of admiring and startled glances.
The corner of Boylston and Tremont was the nearest Midge got to the wharf, but the lady awaiting him was doubtless a more dazzling sight than the catch of the luckiest Massachusetts fishermalL She could talk, too-probably better than the fish.
