EARLY HISTORY OF CLOUD COUNTY
By H.E. Smith
Experiences in the City
This, of course would not do, so I gave up my room, and took one at $1.75, which was much more gloomy and cheerless than the other, which was bad enough in that respect, certainly, for it must be remembered that good, plainly furnished rooms, in a respectable location, with nothing elaborate in their appointments, cost from $4 to $5 a week, so high is the price of real estate—and consequently 0 rents—in this great city. So you can imagine what mine was; enough to say that it was up many stairs, and the bedstead was short and narrow, the  bed clothe; few and thin. I then took table-board at a place kept by a German, near my place of business, at $4 per week but the food was cooked in a way I was not used to, and did not very well like—however, I was living within my income, and looking forward to better times.
But my greatest hardship during this time was want of society; for a young man of any refinement of feeling and not possessing to any great degree that quality denominated "brass," might live in this city for years without being brought in that friendly, neighborly contact with people congenial to him, without which existence become little better than a blank.
After a few months, a change occurring in the firm that employed me, I was told that, not doing the amount of business they anticipated, they should decrease store expenses by reducing the salaries of the other clerks, and, as I was the last employed, they should try and get along without my services; not they were dissatisfied with me at all—would recommend me, etc.
I felt sorry for this, for I had got used to my business, and could perform it without this half fear of not doing it right that I had at first, and I  liked my employers very well, and did not like the idea of having to begin in a new place; however, I did not think it a very serious matter, for I supposed I could easily get a situation before the end of the week (this was on Wednesday), by personal application, or by answering some of the many advertisements which I had noticed in the papers under "Help Wanted."
I looked in the papers in which the wants are principally published and, selecting two or three which I thought I might perhaps be successful with, I wrote the advertisers in the best manner I was capable of, and was somewhat surprised as the next day passed, and the next also, at not receiving  any reply; however, I looked over the papers again, and selecting some more promising offers answered them—some by letter, as directed, and others in person at time and place specified; and although at the first one I visited I was on hand before the appointed time, I found twenty applicants ahead of me.
