HARMONY

EVEN a baseball writer must sometimes work. Regretfully I vielded my seat in the P. G., walked past the section where Art Graham, Bill Cole, Lefty Parks and young Waldron were giving expert tonsorial treatment to " Sweet Adeline," and flopped down beside Ryan, the manager.
" Well, Cap," I said, " we're due in Springfield in a little over an hour and I haven't written a line."
" Don't let me stop you," said Ryan.
" I want you to start me," I said.

Only there's really no mystery at all about it; it's just what I consider the most remarkable piece of scouting ever done. I've been making a mystery of it just to have a little fun with Dick Hodges. You know he's got the Jackson club and he's still so sore about my stealing Waldron he'll hardly speak to me.
" I'll give you the dope if you want it, though it's a boost for Art Graham, not me. There's lots of people think the reason I've kept the thing a secret is because I'm modest.
