HORSESHOES

in' they was only one down. We was all crazy, believin' his nut play had let 'em tie it up; but he comes tearin' in, tellin' Archer to tag Marsans. So Jim walxs over and tags the Cuban, who was brushin' off his uniform.
" You're out! " says Klem. " You never touched the plate."
I guess Marsans knowed the umps was right because' he didn't make much of a holler. But Speed sure got a pannin' in the clubhouse.
" I suppose you knowed he was goin' to miss the plate! " says Hank sarcastic as he could.
Everybody on the club roasted him, but it didn't do no good.
Well, you know what happened to me. I only got into one game with the Cubs-one afternoon when Leach was sick. We was playin' the Boston bunch and Tyler was workin' against us. I always had trouble with lefthanders and this was one of his good days. I couldn't see what he throwed up there. I got one foul durin' the afternoon's entertainment; and the wind was blowin' a hundred-mile gale, so that the best outfielder in the world couldn't judge a fly ball. That Boston bunch must of hit fifty of 'em and they all come to my field.
If I caught any I've forgot about it. Couple o' days after that I got notice o' my release to Indianapolis.
Parker kept right on all season doin' the blamedest things you ever heard of and gettin' by with 'em. One o' the boys told me about it later. If they was playin' a double-header in St. Louis, with the thermometer at 130 degrees, he'd get put out by the umps in the first innin' o' the first game. If he started to steal the catcher'd drop the pitch or somebody'd muff the throw. If he hit a pop fly the sun'd get in somebody's eyes. If he took a swell third strike with the bases full the umps would call it a ball. If he cut first base by twenty feet the umps would be readin' the mornin' paper.
Zimmerman's leg mended, so that he was all right by June; and then Saier got sick and they tried Speed at first base. He'd never saw the bag before ; but things kept on breakin' for him and he played it like a house afire. The Cubs copped the pennant and Speed got in on the big dough, besides playin' a whale of a game through the whole serious.
Speed and me both went back to Ishpeming to spend the winter -though the Lord knows it ain't no winter resort. Our homes was there ; and besides, in my case, they was a certain girl livin' in the old burg.
