ROUND UP

" Well, in the seventh, Mike still had 'em shut out, and we was six runs to the good. Then a couple o' the St. Louis boys hit 'em where they couldn't nobody reach 'em and they was two on and two out. Then somebody got a hold o' one and sent it on a line to the left o' second base. I forgot who it was now; but whoever it was, he was supposed to be a right field hitter, and Art was layin' over the other way for him. Art started with the crack o' the bat, and I never seen a man make a better try for a ball. IIe had it udged perfect; but Cobb or Speaker or none o' them couldn't of catched it. Art just managed to touch it by stretchin' to the limit. It went on to the fence and everybody come in. They didn't score no more in that innin'.
" Then Art come in from the field and what do you think he tried to pull ?
" ` I don't know what was the matter with me on that fly ball,' he says. ' I ought to caught it in my pants pocket. But I didn't get started till it was right on top o' me.'
" ` You misjudged it, didn't you? ' says Ryan.
" ` I certainly did,' says Art without crackin'.
'Well,' says Ryan, ` I wisht you'd misjudge all o' them that way. I never seen a better play on a ball.'
" So then Art knowed they wasn't no more use trying to alibi the old boy.
" 'Alike had a turn at Tat and when he come back, Ryan ast him how he felt.
" ` I guess I can get six more o' them out,' he says.
" Well, they didn't score in the eighth, and when the ninth come Ryan sent I and Lefty out to warm up. We throwed a few w'ile our club was battin'; but when it come St. Louis' last chanct, we was too much interested in the ball game to know if we was throwin' or bakin' biscuits.
" The first guy hits a line drive, and somebody jumps a mile in the air arid stabs it. The next fella fouled out, and they was only one more to get. And then what do you think come off ? Whoever it was hittin' lifted a fly ball to centre field. Art didn't have to move out of his tracks. I've saw him catch a hundred just like it behind his back. But you know what he was thinhin'. He was sayin' to himself, ` If I nail this one, we're li'ble to keep our tenor singer a Vile longer.' And he dropped it.
" Then they was five base hits that sounded like the fourth o' July, and they come so fast that Ryan didn't have time to send for
