ROUND UP

Milwaukee engagement. The wine flowed freely and Midge had more of it than Tommy Haley ever would have permitted him. Mr. Harris offered no objection, which was possibly just as well
for his own physical comfort.
In the dancing between drinks, Midge had his new manager's wife for a partner as often as Grace. The latter's face as she floundered round in the arms of the portly Harris, belied her frequent protestations that she was having the time of her life.
Several times that week, Midge thought Grace was on the point of starting the quarrel he hoped to have. But it was not until Friday night that she accommodated. He and Mrs. Harris had disappeared after the matinee and when Grace saw him again at the close of the night show, she came to the point at once.
" What are you tryin' to pull off ?" she demanded.
" It's none o' your business, is it ?" said Midge.
" You bet it's my business ; mine and Harris's. You cut it short or you'll find out."
" Listen," said Midge, " have you got a mortgage on me or somethin'? You talk like we was married."
" We're goin'to be, too. And to-morrow's as good a time as any."
" Just about," Midge said. "You got as much chanct o' marryin' me to-morrow as the next day or next year and that ain't no chanct at all."
" We'll find out," said Grace.
" You're the one that's got somethin' to find out." " What do you mean? "
" I mean I'm married already."
" You lie! "
" You think so, do you? Well, s'pose you go to this here address and get acquainted with my missus."
Midge scrawled a number on a piece of paper and handed it to her. She stared at it unseeingly.
" Well," said Midge, " I ain't kiddin' you. You go there and ask for Mrs. Michael Kelly, and if you don't find her, I'll marry you to-morrow before breakfast."
Still t'race stared at the scrap of paper. To Midge it seemed an age bef-)re she spoke again.
" Y,ju lied to me all this w'ile."
" You never ast me was I married. What's more, what the hell diff'r,;nce did it make to you? You got a split, didn't you? Better'n fifty-fifty."
He started away.
