ROUND UP

He had a kind o' crazy look in his eyes; so when he starts up tt the room I follows him.
" What are you goin' to do now? " I says.
" I'm goin' to sell this ticket to Atlanta," he says, " and go back to 11luskegon, where I belong."
" I'll help you pack," I says.
" No," says the bug. " I come into this league with this suit o' clothes and a collar. They can have the rest of it." Then he sits down on the bed and begins to cry like a baby. " No series dough for me," he blubbers, "and no weddin' bells ! My girl'll die when she hears about it! "
Of course that made me feel kind o' rotten, and I says :
" Brace up, boy ! The best thing you can do is go to Atlanta and try hard. You'll be up here again next year."
" You can't tell me where to go! " he says, and he wasn't cryin' no more. "I'll go where I please-and I'm li'ble to take you with me."
I didn't want no argument, so I kep' still. Pretty soon he goes up to the lookin'-glass and stares at himself for five minutes. Then, all of a sudden, he hauls off and takes a wallop at his reflection in the glass. Naturally he smashed the glass all to pieces and he cut his hand somethin' awful.
Without lookin' at it he come over to me and says: " Well, good-by, sport! "-and holds out his other hand to shake. When I starts to shake with him he smears his bloody hand all over my map. Then he laughed like a wild man and run out o' the room and out o' the hotel.

Well, boys, my sleep was broke up for the rest o' the season. It might of been because I was used to sleepin' in all kinds o' racket and excitement, and couldn't stand for the quiet after he'd wentor it might of been because I kep' thinkin' about him and feelin' sorry for him.
I of'en wondered if he'd settle down and be somethin' if he could get married; and finally I got to b'lievin' he would. So when we was dividin' the city series dough I was thinkin' of him and the girl. Our share o' the money-the losers', as usual-was twelve thousand seven hundred sixty bucks or somethin' like that. They was twenty-one of us and that meant six hundred seven
