ROUND UP

They was makin' an awful racket when Elliott finally come in about midnight. I was layin' awake and I opened right up on ~aim. I says :
" Don't shut off that water, because I like to hear it run."
Then I turned over and pretended to be asleep. The bug got his clothes off, and then what did he do but go in the bathroom and shut off the water ! Then he come back in the room and says :
" I guess no one's goin' to tell me what to do in here."
But I kep' right on pretendin' to sleep and didn't pay no atten
tion. When he'd got into his bed I jumped out o' mine and turned
on all the lights and begun stroppin' my razor. He says : " What's comin' off ? "
" Some o' my whiskers," I says. " I always shave along about this time."
" No, you don't! " he says. " I was in your room one murnin' down in Louisville and I seen you shavin' then."
" Well," I says, " the boys tell me you shave in the middle o' the night; and I thought if I done all the things you do mebbe I'd get so's I could hit like you."
" You must be superstitious! " he says. And I told him I was. " I'm a good hitter," he says, " and I'd be a good hitter if I never shaved at all. That don't make no diff'rence."
" Yes, it does," I says. " You prob'ly hit good because you shave at night; but you'd be a better fielder if you shaved in the mornin'."
You see, I was tryin' to be just as crazy as him-though that wasn't hardly possible.
" If that's right," says he, " I'll do my shavin' in the mornin'because I seen in the papers where the boys says that if I could play the outfield like I can hit I'd be as good as Cobb. They tell me Cobb gets twenty thousand a year."
" No," I says; " he don't get that much-but he gets about ten times as much as you do."
" Well," he says, " I'm goin' to be as good as him, because I need the money."
" What do you want with money? " I says.
He just laughed and didn't say nothin'; but from that time on the water didn't run in the bathtub nights and he done his shavin' after breakfast. I didn't notice, though, that he looked any better in fieldin' practice.
