HARMONY

I or Lefty. Anyway, I guess he thought he might as well leave Alike in there and take it.
" They wasn't no singin' in the clubhouse after that game. I 1tiid Lefty always let the others start it. Mike, o' course, didn't i,~cl like no jubilee, and Art was so busy tryin' not to let nobody see him cry that he kept his head clear down in his socks. Finally lie beat it for town all alone, and we didn't see nothin' of him till after supper. Then he got us together and we all went up t& 14iike's room.
" ` I want to try this here " Old Girl o' 11Tine,"' lie says.
" 'Better sing our old stuff,' says Mike. 'This looks like the last time.'
" Then Art choked up and it was ten minutes before lie could get goin'. We sung everything we knowed, and it was two o'clock in the mornin' before Art had enough. Ryan come in after midnight and set a w'ile listenin', but lie didn't chase us to bed. He knowed bettcr'n any of us that it was a farewell. When I and Art. was startin' for our room, Art turned to Alike and says:
" ` Old boy, I'd of gave every nickel I ever owned to of caught that fly ball.'
" ` I;;now you would,' Mike says, 'and I know what made you drop it. But don't worry about it, 'cause it was just a question o" time, and if I'd of got away with that game, they'd of murdered some o' the infielders next time I started.'
" Alike was sent home the next day, and we didn't see him again. lie was shipped to Minneapolis before we got back. And the rest: o' the season I might as well of lived in a cemetery w'ile we was, on the road. Art was so bad that I thought net or twict I'd have to change roomies. Onet in a w'ile he'd start hummin' and then he'd break off short and growl at me. He tried out two or three o' the other boys on the club to see if he couldn't find a new tenor singer, but nothin' doin'. One night he made Lefty try the tenor. Well, Lefty's voice is bad enough down low. When he gets up about so high, you think you're in the stockyards.
" And Art had a rotten year in baseball, too. The old boy's still pretty near as good on a fly ball as anybody in the league; but you ought to saw him before his legs begin to give out. I3e could cover as much ground as Speaker and he was just as sure. But the year Mike left us, he missed pretty near half as many as he got. He told me one night, he says :
