HARMONY

They was a part in that where I sung the iead down low and the other three done a banjo stunt. Then they was ` Castle on the Nile' and 'Come Back to Erin' and a whole lot more.
" Well, the four of us wasn't hardly ever separated for three years. We was practisin' all the Vile like as if we was goin' to play the big time, and we never made a nickel off'n it. The only audience we had was the ball players or the people travelin' on the same trains or stoppin' at the same hotels, and they got it all for nothin'. But we had a good time, 'specially Art.
" You know what a pitcher Alike was. IIe could go in there stone cold and stick ten out o' twelve over that old plate with somethin' on 'em. And he was the willin'est guy in the world. lie pitched his own game every third or fourth day, and between them games he was warmin' up all the time to go in for somebody else. In 1911, when we was up in the race for aw'ile, he pitched eight games out o' twenty, along in September, and win seven d them, and besides that, he finished up five o' the twelve he didn't start. We didn't win the pennant, and I've always figured that them three weeks killed Mike.

" ` Well,: I says, 'you're gettin's so's they can't nobody hide nothin' from you. Next thing you'll be findin' out that Sam Crawford can hit.'
" ` Never mind the comical stuff,' he says. ` They ain't no joke about this! '
" ` No,' I says, ` and I never said they was. They'll look a long Vile before they find another pitcher like Mike.'
" ` Pitcher my foot! ' says Art. ' I don't care if they have to pitch the bat boy. But when Mike goes, where'll our quartette be?'
" ` Well,' I says, ` do you get paid every first and fifteenth for singin' or for crownin' that old pill?'
" ' If you couldn't talk about money, you'd be deaf and dumb,' says Art.
" ` But you ain't playin' ball because it's fun, are you?'
" ` No,' he says,' they ain't no fun for me in playin' ball. They's
