EARLY HISTORY OF CLOUD COUNTY
BY H.E. SMITH
An Engineer's Yarn
One thing used to rile me, though, and that was the sneaking sort of liking that Harkness seemed to have for her; and, worse, he showed it plainly enough by the way he persecuted her with his odious attentions whenever he got the chance. She told me she would leave the place if she could only get another.
I have said that it was sixteen years ago that I entered the box factory. If you will take the trouble to subtract, you will find that makes 1857. It puts us just in the year of the great financial crash. I had been in the factory about three months, and was getting used to the general run of things; and though it was out of my line, and none of my business, I could not but notice how slack trade seemed to be.
Rumors of failures up the street, down the street, on the corner, at Nos. 35 and 37 over the way, met my ears. Rumors of failures and failures to come. Rumors of distress East, West, and South. Rumors of a threatened general smashup. Money men tell me that when the market is tight, it only needs such a wholesale panic to bring down everyone. It is the apprehension, not the reality, that does the work. This is not telling my story, either.
Well, old Harkness kept on with his manufacturing, though I could see that day by day fewer calls for work were made. He always wore a cheerful smile through those troublous times, as much as to say, "Look at me, if you want to see a model of business. I don't speculate. I don't get involved. Mark my consequent prosperity." Now when I see a man a good deal of bluster and swagger about him, I always make up my mind that he is a coward at heart. When some people parade their financial soundness, the Wall Street animals snuff rottenness somewhere. It must have been on this principle that I began to suspect that Harkness wasn't so safe after all.
