A FRAME-UP

" I won't have time to get tired," he says. "I'll knock him dead in a round !"
It was the first time he'd ever made a speech like that.
" Looks like you was right," says Nate to Jack, afterwards, "He's eat it up. The only thing now is to be sure and not overplay it. Just give him a couple more short notes between now and the bout."
" What shall I say in them?" says Jack.
" You don't need my advice," said Nate. "I think you wrote that one from memory. You must of got a few mash notes yourself."
" No," says Jack. "All the time I was boxing, I only got letters from one gal. And she always said the same thing: `If you're a man, you'll pay me back that eight dollars and sixty cents you stole."'
Well, Burke pestered the clerks to death asking if they was sure no mail had came for him; and he went for the phone every time it rung, and was scared to go out for fear a call would come w'ile he wasn't there. Finally it got so that Nate couldn't hardly drag him to Daley's for his work-out, and they seen they'd have to spill another note or he'd worry himself out of shape. The second one was short and said:

DEAR MR. BURKE: It has been all as I could do to keep from writing you before this, but was afraid if I wrote too often you would think I was a fool.
Well, Mr. Burke, it's only five days now till your bout with Mr. Kemp and suppose you are excited. I know I am and can't hardly wait for the big event, though to be perfectly honest am in a funny position as I don't know if I want you or he to win. You see I am an admirer of the both of you. Suppose you will say to yourself I must be a funry girl to not know her own mind, but you see I have admired Mr. Kemp a long time and only seen you the other night for the first time, so don't know which I like best. Guess I will let you two decide the question for me and may the best man win.
Pa is going to take me to the fight and only hope I will not faint or something with excitement. Suppose you will think me a fool for feeling this way in regards to two parties who I have never met, but as I told you before, am a girl that always lets their feelings get the best of them, though sometimes am sorry when it is too late. Hope you won't make me sorry, Mr. Burke. That is, if you win. Am afraid for your sake, however, that you are doomed
