A FRAME-UP

"Cut loose and slug !" Nate told him.
" What for?" he says.
" To show me if you've got a haymaker," says Nate.
" Ask Porter if I have," said the kid.
Finally Nate got him matched with Red Harris in a semi-windup at Milwaukee. Harris can wallop, but he's slow. Well, Burkey made him look like he was handcuffed. Red never laid a glove on him the whole bout, w'ile Nate's boy played him like a piano. But it was soft music and when it was over neither of them had a mark. The crowd liked Burke at first on account of his speed. But they razzed him the last few rounds because it looked like he wasn't trying. The papers couldn't do nothing but give him the best of it, but said he wouldn't never get nowheres till he learned to punch. Nate had begged him all through to tear in and end it, but he might as well of tried to argue with Central.
Well, Fitzsimmons was putting on a show over to Benton Harbor and he wired Nate and ast him if he'd bring Burke there for a wind-up with a Grand Rapids boy named Hap Stein. This kid had met some of the best boys round Michigan and beat them all, and, of course, Burke'd draw good in his home town, especially after what he done to Porter.
So Nate took Burkey over there and Fitz ast Nate how the kid was coming and Nate told him:
" One of the sweetest boxers I ever seen, but he ain't showed enough of a wallop to annoy a soap bubble."
" It's a funny thing," said Fitz, "because he hit Porter just once and broke his jaw. And Charley's jaw ain't glass, neither. I know a punch when I see one and I doubt if Dempsey could hit harder than this bird plugged this baby."
" Well," says Nate, "I wished we had the prescription. He made a monkey out of Harris at Milwaukee, but he wouldn't even slap him hard. And the boys he works out with, I've had them rough him so's he'd get mad, but it didn't do no good."
" I don't suppose so," says Fitz, "because he wasn't sore at Porter. Charley didn't even know him."
" But he had a reason to show Porter up," said Nate, and he told Fitz about the rube gal.
" That's news to me," said Fitz. "Maybe he'll only fight when they's a dame for a prize. Why don't you hire some chorus doll to vamp him and have her tell him she's his as soon as he's knocked all the other welters for a corpse?"
" You don't know this bird!" said Nate. "Chorus gals would be
