ROUND UP

" Is he married? " inquired Joe.
" Say, you'd think he was married to hear him rave about them kiddies he's got. His fam'ly's up in Canada to their summer home and Midge is wild to get up there with 'em. He thinks more o' that wife and them kiddies than all the money in the world. Get what I mean? "
" How many children has he? "
" I don't know, four or five, I guess. All boys and every one of 'em a dead ringer for their dad."
" Is his father living? "
" No, the old man died when he was a kid. But he's got a grand old mother and a kid brother out in Chi. They're the first ones he thinks about after a match, them and his wife and kiddies. And he don't forget to send the old woman a thousand bucks after every bout. He's goin' to buy her a new home as soon as they pay him off for this match."
" How about his brother? Is he going to tackle the game?"
" Sure, and Midge says he'll be a champion before he's twenty years old. They're a fightin' fam'ly and all of 'em honest and straight as a die. Get what I mean ? A fella that I can't tell you his name come to Midge in Milwaukee onct and wanted him to throw a fight and Midge give him such a trimmin' in the street that he couldn't go on that night. That's the kind he is. Get what I mean? "
Joe Morgan hung around the camp until Midge and his trainers returned.
" One o' the boys from The News," said Wallie by way of in
troduction. " I been givin' him your fam'ly hist'ry." " Did he give you good dope? " he inquired. " He's some historian," said Joe.
" Don't call me no names," said Wallie smiling. " Call us up if they's anything more you want. And keep your eyes on us Monday night. Get what I mean ?"
The story in Sunday's News was read by thousands of lovers of the manly art. It was well written and full of human interest. Its slight inaccuracies went unchallenged, though three readers, besides Wallie Adams and Midge Kelly, saw and recognized them. The three were Grace, Tommy Haley and Jerome Harris and the comments they made were not for publication.
Neither the Mrs. Kelly in Chicago nor the Mrs. Kelly in Milwaukee knew that there was such a paper as the New York News. And even if they had known of it and that it contained two columns

of reading matter about Midge, neither mother nor wife could have bought it. For The News on Sunday is a nickel a copy.
Joe Morgan could have written more accurately, no doubt, if instead of Wallie Adams, he had interviewed Ellen Kelly and Connie Kelly and Emma Kelly and Lou Hersch and Grace and
Jerome Harris and Tommy Haley and Hap Collins and two or three Milwaukee bartenders.
But a story built on their evidence would never have passed the sporting editor.
" Suppose you can prove it," that gentleman would have said, " It wouldn't get us anything but abuse to print it. The people don't want to see him knocked. He's champion."
