ROUND UP

like that. We'd been in Tampa a week before he showea up. Then he comes to the hotel and just sits round all day, without tellin' nobody who he was. Finally the bellhops was going to chase him out and he says he's one o' the ballplayers. Then the clerk gets John to go over and talk to him. He tells John his name and says he hasn't had nothin' to eat for three days, because he was broke. John told me afterward that he'd drew about three hundred in advance-last winter sometime. Well, they took him in the dinin' room and they tell me he inhaled about four meals at once. That night they roomed him with Heine.
Next mornin' Heine and me walks out to the grounds together and Heine tells me about him. He says :
" Don't never call me a bug again. They got me roomin' with the champion o' the world."
" Who is he? " I says.
" I don't know and I don't want to know," says Heine ;" but if they stick him in there with me again I'll jump to the Federals. To start with, he ain't got no baggage. I a,-t him where his trunk was and he says he didn't have none. Then f ast him if he didn't have no suitcase, and he says: ` No. What do you care?' I was goin' to lend him some pajamas, but he put on the shirt o' the uniform John give him last night and slept in that. He was asleep when I got up this mornin'. I seen his collar layin' on the dresser and it looked like he had wore it in Pittsburgh every day for a year. So I throwed it out the window and he comes down to breakfast with no collar. I ast him what size collar he wore and he says he didn't want none, because he wasn't goin' out nowheres. After breakfast he beat it up to the room again and put on his uniform. When I got up there he was lookin' in the glass at himself, and he done it all the time I was dressin'."
When we got out to the park I got my first look at him. Pretty good-lookin' guy, too, in his unie-big shoulders and well put together; built somethin' like Heine himself. He was talkin' to John when I come up.
" What position do you play? " John was askin' him.
" I play anywheres," says Elliott.
" You're the kind I'm lookin' for," says John. Then he says :
" You was an outfielder up there in Michigan, wasn't you?"
" I don't care where I play," says Elliott.
John sends him to the outfield and forgets all about him for a
while. Pretty soon Miller comes in and says :
" I ain't goin' to shag for no bush outfielder!"
