HARMONY

these years. This is just between us, 'cause Ryan'll find it out for himself ; my arm's rotten, and I can't do nothin' to help it.'
" Then Art got sore as a boil.
" ` You're a ,yellow, quittin' dog,' he says. 'Just because you come round a little slow, you talk about Minneapolis. Why don't you resign off'n the club?'
" ` I might just as well,' Alike says, and left us.
" You'd of thought that Art would of gave up then, 'cause when a ball player admits he's slippin', you can bet your last nickel that he's through. Most o' them stalls along and tries to kid themself and everybody else long after they know they're gone. But Art kept talkin' like they was still some hope o' Alike cmiiin' round, and when Ryan told us one night in St. Louis that he was goin' to give Mike his chanct, the nest day, Art was as nervous as a bride l;oin' to get married. I wasn't nervous. I just felt sorry, 'cause I knowed the old boy was hopeless.
" Ryan had told him lie was goin' to work if the weather suited him. Well, the day was perfect. So Mike went out to the park along about noon and took Jake with him to warm up. Jake told me afterwards that Mike was throwin', just easy like, from halfpast twelve till the rest of us got there. He was tryin' to heat lip the old souper and lie couldn't of ast for a better break in the weather, but they wasn't enough sunshine in the world to make that old whip crack.
" Well, sir, you'd of thought to see Art that Mike was his son or his brother or somebody and just breakin' into the league. Art wasn't in the outfield practisin' more than two minutes. He come in and stood behind Alike w'ile he was warmin' up and kept tellin' how good he looked, but the only guy he was kiddin' was himself.
" Then the game starts and our club goes in and gets three runs.
" ` Pretty soft for you now, Mike,' says Art, on the bench. ` They can't score three off'n you in three years.'
" Say, it's lucky he ever got the side out in the first innin'. Everybody that come up hit one on the pick, but our infield pulled two o' the greatest plays I ever seen and they didn't score. Tn the second, we got three more, and I thought maybe the old bird was goin' to be lucky enough to scrape through.
" For four or five innin's, he got the grandest support that was ever gave a pitcher; but I'll swear that what he throwed up there didn't have no more on it than September Morning. Every time Art come to the bench, he says to Mike, 'Keep it up, old boy. You got more than you ever had.'
