CHAPTER I AFTER THE GAME

"That was a hard game for Macklin to lose, fellows!"

"I should say it was, Herb."

"He nearly pitched his head off, too. Wow! how they did come in like cannon balls!"

"And talk about curves and drops, Little Clarence was roight there wid the goods," said a stout boy; whose freckled face, carroty hair and blue eyes, as well as the touch of brogue to his voice, told of Irish blood.

"But Jack met his hot pace, and went him one better. Clarence may be a cracker jack in the box, but he can't just come up to good old reliable Jack Storm ways, of the high school baseball club."

"Oh, shucks! enough of that taffy, fellows," laughed the object of this praise, as he swung the bat he was carrying; "why, you know right well I was up against the fence when they made that ninth inning rally.

While his name was understood to be Nick Longfellow, he seldom heard it save at home or in school. To his fellows he was known by such significant names as "Buster," "Pudding," and "Hippopotamus."

There were just five in the bunch, dusty, tired fellows, all on the way home from a most exciting game with a rival team, and the most bitter rivals for supremacy in the little river town along the upper Mississippi.

Besides Buster and Jack, there were the Irish lad, Jimmie Brannagan, who lived with the Stormways, being something of a ward of Jack's father; Herb Dickson, and George Rollins, all of them members of the high school team.

These five boys, with the addition of another who was not present just then, composed the membership of a motor boat club, and between them owned three very clever craft... Continue reading book >>
