ROUND UP

"O you Kid! " she said, flashing a few silver teeth among the gold. " 0 you fighting man!"
Midge smiled up at her.
" We'll go somewheres and get a drink," he said. " One won't hurt."
In New Orleans, five months after he had rearranged the map of Bud Cross for the third time, Midge finished training for his championship bout with the Dutchman.
Back in his hotel after the final workout, Midge stopped to chat with some of the boys from up north, who had made the long trip to see a champion dethroned, for the result of this bout was so nearly a foregone conclusion that even the experts had guessed it.
Tommy Haley secured the key and the mail and ascended to the Kelly suite. He was bathing when Midge came in, half an hour later.
" Any mail? " asked Midge.
" There on the bed," replied Tommy from the tub.
Midge picked up the stack of letters and postcards and glanced them over. From the pile he sorted out three letters and laid them on the table. The rest he tossed into the waste-basket. Then he picked up the three and sat for a few moments holding them, while his eyes gazed off into space. At length he looked again at the three unopened letters in his hand ; then he put one in his pocket and tossed the other two at the basket. They missed their target and fell on the floor.
" Hell! " said Midge, and stooping over picked them up. He opened one postmarked Milwaukee and read :
