CHAMPION

heard his dismissal read. It had taken Midge just six days to learn that a popular actor cannot get on without the ministrations of a man who thinks, talks and means business. At first Grace objected to the new member of the firm, but when Mr. Harris had demanded and secured from the vaudeville people a one-hundred dollar increase in Midge's weekly stipend, she was convinced that the champion had acted for the best.
" You and my missus will have some great old times," Harris told Grace. " I'd of wired her to join us here, only I seen the Kid's bookin' takes us to Milwaukee next week, and that's where she is."
But when they were introduced in the Milwaukee hotel, Grace admitted to herself that her feeling for Mrs. Harris could hardly be called love at first sight. Midge, on the contrary, gave his new manager's wife the many times over and seemed loath to end the feast of his eyes.
" Some doll," he said to Grace when they were alone.
" Doll is right," the lady replied, " and sawdust where her brains ought to be."
" I'm li'ble to steal that baby," said Midge, and he smiled as he noted the effect of his words on his audience's face.
On Tuesday of the Milwaukee week the champion successfully defended his title in a bout that the newspapers never reported. Midge was alone in his room that morning when a visitor entered without knocking. The visitor was Lou Hersch.
Midge turned white at sight of him.
" What do you want? " he demanded.
" I guess you know," said Lou Hersch. " Your wife's starvin' to death and your baby's starvin' to death and I'm starvin' to death. And you're dirty with money."
" Listen," said Midge, " if it wasn't for you, I wouldn't never saw your sister. And, if you ain't man enough to hold a job, what's that to me ? The best thing you can do is keep away from me."
" You give me a piece o' money and I'll go."
Midge's reply to the ultimatum was a straight right to his brother-in-law's narrow chest.
" Take that home to your sister."
And after Lou Hersch had picked himself up and slunk away, Midge thought: " It's lucky I didn't give him my left or I'd of croaked him. And if I'd hit him in the stomach, I'd of broke his spine."
