MY ROOMY

" A ball might hit him in the temple and croak him," says John. But he busted up a couple o' games for us at home, beatin' Pittsburgh once and Cincy once.

V
They give me a great big room at the hotel in Pittsburgh; so the fellers picked it out for the poker game. We was playin' along about ten o'clock one night when in come Elliott-the earliest he'd showed up since we'd been roomin' together. They was only five of us playin' and Tom ast him to sit in.
" I'm busted," he says.
" Can you play poker? " I ast him.
" They's nothin' I can't do! " he says. " Slip me a couple o' bucks and I'll show you."
So I slipped him a couple o' bucks and honestly hoped he'd win, because I knowed he never had no dough. Well, Tom dealt him a, hand and he picks it up and says :
" I only got five cards."
" How many do you want? " I says.
" Oh," he says, " if that's all I get I'll try to make 'em do."
The pot was cracked and raised, and he stood the raise. I says to myself: " There goes my two bucks! " But no-he comes out with three queens and won the dough. It was only about seven bucks ; but you'd of thought it was a million to see him grab it. He laughed like a kid.
" Guess I can't play this game! " he says ; and he had me fooled for a minute-I thought he must of been kiddin' when he complained of only havin' five cards.
He copped another pot right afterward and was sittin' there with about eleven bucks in front of him when Jim opens a roodle pot for a buck. I stays and so does Elliott. Him and Jim both drawed one card and I took three. I had kings or queens-I forget which. I didn't help 'em none ; so when Jim bets a buck I
throws my hand away.
" How much can I bet? " says the bug.
" You can raise Jim a buck if you want to," I says.
So he bets two dollars. Jim comes back at him. He comes right back at Jim. Jim raises him again and he tilts Jim right back. Well, when he'd boosted Jim with the last buck he had, Jim says : "I'm ready to call. I guess you got me beat. What have you
got ? "
" I know what I've got, all right," says Elliott. " I've got
