ROUND UP

And:
" You might maybe be good for tiddle-de-winks, but not checkers! "
I almost felt like letting him beat me a couple games. But the crowd would of knowed it was a put up job.
Well, the women folks joined us in the Park and I wasn't going to mention our little game, but Hartsell told about it himself and admitted he wasn't no match for me. '
" Well," said Mrs. Hartsell, " checkers ain't much of a game anyway, is it ?" She said :" It's more of a children's game, ain't it? At least, I know my boy's children used to play it a good deal."
" Yes, ma'am," I said. " It's a children's game the way your husband plays it, too."
Mother wanted to smooth things over, so she said :
" Maybe they's other games where Frank can beat you."
" Yes," said Mrs. Hartsell, " and I bet he could beat you pitch ing horse-shoes."
" Well," I said, " I would give him a chance to try, only I ain't ,pitched a shoe in over sixteen years."
" Well," said Hartsell, " I ain't played checkers in twenty years."
" You ain't never played it," I said.
" Anyway," says Frank, " Lucy and I is your master at five hundred."
Well, I could of told him why that was, but had decency enough to hold my tongue. '
It had got so now that lie wanted to play cards every night and when I or Mother wanted to go to a movie, any one of us would have to pretend we had a headache and then trust to goodness that they wouldn't see us sneak into the theater. I don't mind playing ,cards when my partner keeps their mind on the game, but you take a woman like Hartsell's wife and how can they play cards when they have got to stop every couple seconds and brag about their son in Grand Rapids?
Well, the New York-New Jersey Society announced that they
was goin to give a social evening too and I said to Mother, I said:
" Well, that is one evening when we will have an excuse not to play five hundred."
" Yes," she said, " but we will have to ask Frank and his wife to go to the social with us as they asked us to go to the Michigan social."
