One da I saw iome hlcky boyi I
thought they were hlcky boy-playing
ball In a lot, and the one who waa play
ing first hi" wai playing like a bird,
though the ball they had was mostly
dried mud. We needed a flnt base to
win the next game, im I spoke to the boy
end asked him if he would Join our club.
He grinned and said he would like to If
.l.e would be let In, but the boyi In our
rlnh were too stiuk lip to play with him,
mid I slid that would be all right or I'd
know the reason why. Then ke mid he
didn't have any proper clothes to play
In. so I said that wojld lie all right, too,
and I took him to tie store where we
buy our uniforms. Tne man said he had

Bo the boy waa elected to our club and
came to play the next game. He .was a
very raggety boy, but not raggety like
raggety boya In New York. The shoes
he wore wire a pair of high rubber

Brit must have thrown away. Hi had

and If I was she could stake me. 1 told
her I was as solid as Mr. Carnagy, for

nobody wanted. 80 I said that ring
wain't for any old anybody, but wai for

he wished Bob might have the good for

Mary asked me If I knew what th ring
meant, and I aald, of course. Saint

I told her that It aho didn't mind wait

got through college, and I'd save all th
money I got from home until then, and
we d have a ripping time going out to th

But I'll never like that girl again. 8b
told all the other girl and boy that
me, being the nevlew of th richest man
