ROUND UP

"It'd make her sore and spoil everything," said Nate.
" How could it make her sore?" said Burke. "Didn't she smile at me?"
" Well, it'd make her old man sore," says Nate.
" What could he do?" says Burkey. "If he looked cross-eyed at me, I'd bust him."
" That'd be a sweet way to start a courtship 1" said Jack. "Even New York gals ain't so far ahead of the times that they fall in love with every handsome young bud that introduces himself to their father with a smash in the jaw."
" But I just want her phone number," says the kid.
" You can get it at the hotel," says Jack. "The phone company got out a book three or four years ago that gives the names of a few of their rich subscribers, and what their number used to be, and if you call it up, they'll tell you what it's been changed to."
So as soon as we was back at the Spencer, Burkey run for the book. And he couldn't find no Lester Fester.
" I didn't think it'd be in there," says Jack. "They's very few New York millionaires has their number in the phone book. If they did, their wifes would bother them to death, calling up."
" But they must be some way to locate them," said the kid. "Somebody must know where they stay. A man as rich as him must have a big mansion somewheres. And you got to find out where it's at. If you don't find out for me to-morrow, why I'm through ! I won't box Kemp or no one else."
And they knew he was cuckoo enough to mean it. But Jack Grace had his plans made already.
" I'll locate them to-morrow," he said, "that is, unlest you hear from the gal herself."
" But she don't know where I'm staying," says Burke.
" She might maybe call up Rickard and find out," says Jack. So the kid went to bed and Nate and Jack set up and talked it
over.
" It looks like we got him," said Jack. "If we can make him think him and Kemp is rivals, he'll fight."
" But that gal can't be framed," says Nate. "I don't know who she is, but she ain't the kind we could get any help from."
" We don't need her help," says Jack. "He'll get a special delivery to-morrow afternoon, with her name signed to it; that is, what he thinks is her name. I'll dope out the letter yet to-night. If necessary he'll get a letter every day till the day of the bout."
" And then what?" says Nate.
