MY ROOMY

trimmin'; but this second day the score was tied up at two runs apiece in the tenth, and Big Jeff'd been wabblin' for two or three innin s.
Well, he walks Saier and me, with one out, and Mac sends for Matty, who was warmed up and ready. John sticks Elliott in in Brid's place and the bug pulls one into the right-field stand.
It's a cinch McGraw thinks well of him then, and might of went after him if he hadn't went crazy the next afternoon. We're tied up in the ninth and Matty's workin'. John sends Elliott up with the bases choked; but he doesn't go right up to the plate. He walks over to their bench and calls McGraw out. Mac tells us about it afterward.
" I can bust up this game right here! " says Elliott.
" Go ahead," says Mac; " but be careful he don't whiff you."
Then the bug pulls it.
" If I whiff," he says, " will you get me on your club? "
" Sure! " says Mac, just as anybody would.
By this time Bill Koem was hollerin' about the delay; so up goes Elliott and gives the worst burlesque on tryin' to hit that you ever see. Matty throws one a mile outside and high, and the bug swings like it was right over the heart. Then Matty throws one at him and he ducks out o' the way-but swings just the same. Matty must of been wise by this time, for he pitches one so far outside that the Chief almost has to go to the coachers' box after it. Elliott takes his third healthy and runs through the field down to the clubhouse.
We got beat in the eleventh; and when we went in to dress he has his street clothes on. Soon as he seen John comin' he says : " I got to see McGraw !" And he beat it.
John was goin' to the fights that night; but before he leaves the hotel he had waivers on Elliott from everybody and had sold him to Atlanta. ,
" And," says John, "I don't care if they pay for him or not."
My roomy blows in about nine and got the letter from John out of his box. He was goin' to tear it up, but I told him they was news in it. He opens it and reads where he's sold. 1 was still sore at him; so I says:
" Thought you was goin' to get on the New York club?"
" No," he says. " I got turned down cold. McGraw says he wouldn't have me in his club. He says he'd had Charlie Faustand that was enough for him."
