" Your career," supplied Lefty.
" Yes, sir," said Healy. "And I ain't kiddin', neither. Why say, listen: Do you know where I'd be if it wasn't for w woman ? Right out there in that infield, playin' that old third sack."
" What about Smitty? " asked Young Jake.
" He'd be where I am-on this bench."
" Aw, come on, Alike! Be yourself ! You don't claim you're as good as him! " Jake remonstrated.
" I do claim it, but it don't make no difference if I am or I ain't. He shouldn't never ought to of had a chance, not on this club, anyway. You'd say the same if you knowed the facts."
" Well, let's hear 'em."
" It's a long story, and these boys has heard it before."

Their idear was to start Johnnie in the spring, but they didn't expect his knee to hold up. And then it was goin' to be my turn.
" But durin' the winter Johnnie got a hold of some specialist somewheres that fixed his knee, and he come South with a new least of life. He hit good and was as fast as ever on the bases. Meanw'ile I had been on a hunt-in' trip up in Michigan that winter and froze my dogs, and they ailed me so that I couldn't do myself justice all spring."
" I suppose it was some woman made you go huntin'," said Gephart, hut Healy continued without replying :
