ROUND UP

Parker, o' course, was the hero and the swell guy when we got home. He'd been in the World's Serious and had plenty o' dough in his kick. I come home with nothin' but my suitcase and a hardluck story, which I kept to myself. I hadn't even went good enough in Indianapolis to be sure of a job there again.
That fall-last fall-an uncle o' Speed's died over in the Soo and left him ten thousand bucks. I had an uncle down in the Lower Peninsula who was worth five times that much-but he had good health !
This girl I spoke about was the prettiest thing I ever see. I'd went with her in the old days, and when I blew back I found she was still strong for me. They wasn't a great deal o' variety in Ishpeming for a girl to pick from. Her and I went to the dance every Saturday night and to church Sunday nights. I called on her Wednesday evenin's, besides takin' her to all the shows that come along-rotten as the most o' them was.
I never knowed Speed was makin' a play for this doll till along last Feb'uary. The minute I seen what was up I got busy. I took her out sleigh-ridin' and kept her out in the cold till she'd promised to marry me. We set the date for this fall-I figured I'd know better where I was at by that time.
Well, we didn't make no secret o' bein' engaged; down in the poolroom one night Speed come up and congratulated me. He says:
" You got a swell girl, Dick ! I wouldn't mind bein' in your place. You're mighty lucky to cop her out-you old Horseshoes. you ! "
" Horseshoes !" I says. " You got a fine license to call anybody Horseshoes ! I suppose you ain't never had no luck?" " Not like you," he says.
I was feelin' too good about grabbin' the girl to get sore at the time; but when I got to thinkin' about it a few minutes afterward it made me mad clear through. What right did that bird have to talk about me bein' lucky?
Speed was playin' freeze-out at a table near the door, and when I started home some o' the boys with him says : " Good night, Dick."
I said good night and then Speed looked up. " Good night, Horseshoes! " he says. That got my nanny this time.
" Shut up, you lucky stiff !" I says. " If you wasn't so dam lucky you'd be sweepin' the streets." Then I walks on out.
