ROUND UP

himself. That, even if we got in the World's Series, he wouldn't be with us-unless he cut out the foolishness.
" We ain't goin' to get in no World's Series," he says, " and I won't never get a bunch o' money at once ; so it looks like I couldn't get married this fall."
Then I told him we played a city series every fall. He'd never thought o' that and it tickled him to death. I told him the losers always got about five hundred apiece and that we were about due to win it and get about eight hundred. " But," I says, " we still got a good chance for the old pennant; and if I was you I wouldn't give up hope o' that y et-not where John can hear you, anyway."
" No," he SaVS, "\ve won't win no pennant, because he won't let me play reb'lar; but I don't care so long as we're sure o' that city-series dough."
" You ain'tt sure of it if you don't behave," I says.
" Well," says he, very serious, " I guess I'll behave." And he did-till we made our first Eastern trip.

VI
We went to Boston first, and that crazy bunch goes out and piles up a three-run lead on us in seven innin's the first day. It was the pitcher's turn to lead off in the eighth, so up goes Elliott to bat fo-,chim. He kisses the first thing they hands him for three bases; and we says, on the bench: " Now we'll get 'Em! "-because, you know, a three-run lead wasn't nothin' in Boston.
" Stay right on that bag !" John hollers to Elliott.
DZebbe if John hadn't said nothin' to him everythin' would of been all right; but when Perdue starts to pitch the first ball to Tommy, Elliott starts to steal home. He's out as far as from here to Seattle.
If I'd been carrvin' a gun Pd of shot him right through the heart. As it was, I thought John'd kill him with a bat, because he was standin'there with a couple of 'em, waitin' for his turn; but I guess John was too stunned to move. He didn't even seem to see Elliott when lie went to the bench. After I'd cooled off a little I says:
" Beat it and get into your clothes before John comes in. Then go to the hotel and keep out o' sight."
When I got up in the room afterward, there was Elliott, lookin' as innocent and happy as though he'd won fifty bucks with a pair o' treys.
