call. He hadn't never shaved and his w'iskers was just the right number and len'th to string a violin. Thinks Howard to himself: "If you seen a stage rube dressed like that, you'd say it was overdone."
Well, it got late and the gang thinned out till finally they wasn't nobody left but Howard and this sap. So Howard ast him if he wanted to see somebody.
" Yes," said the kid. "I want to see a man that can learn me to fight."
So Howard ast him if he meant box.
" Box or fight, I don't care which, just so's I can learn the rules," said the hick.
" Did you ever box?" says Howard.
" No," says the kid, "but I can learn quick and I'm willing to pay for it. I got plenty of money. I got pretty close to $700."
Howard ast him what was his name and where he come from and his business.
" My name's Burke and I work on my old man's farm," he says.
" It's acrost the Lake, outside of Benton Harbor. We raise peaches." "Has your old man got money?" ast Howard. "Plenty," says the kid.
" Well," said Howard, "if you work on a farm, you're getting plenty of exercise. And if your old man's rich, you ain't after the sugar. So what's the idear of going into this game?"
" I don't want to go in no game," he says. "I just want to learn good enough so's I can win this one match and then I'm through."
" What one match?" says Howard.
" With Charley Porter," says Burke.
Well, of course you've heard of Charley Porter. He's a Benton Harbor boy too. He'd fought Lewis twice and Britton once and he'd give them both a sweet battle. He was considered about fourth or fifth best amongst the welters. So it struck Howard funny that this green rube, that hadn't never boxed, should think he could take a few lessons and then be good enough to beat a boy like Porter.
" You're an ambitious kid," he says to him, "but if I was you I'd take my seven hundred men and invest it some other way. Porter's had forty fights, and that's what counts. You could take all the lessons in the world, and he'd make a monkey out of you. Unless you're a boy wonder or something. But even if you are, you couldn't get no match with Porter till you'd proved it. And that means you'd have to beat some other good boys first."
So Burke said: "All I come to Chicago for is to take some boxing lessons. They told me you was the man to come and see. If
