EARLY HISTORY OF CLOUD COUNTY
By H.E. Smith

EXPERIENCES IN THE CITY   
 Young men, resident of country, hamlet, town, or smaller city please give me your attention for a few moments while I detail some of the experiences of one who, like yourself, perhaps, had for a long time harbored the idea that the best place to develop his particular facility for business and to which he felt by natural right belonged to him, was New York City; and let me say right here I am not writing this article to make a good story, but shall stick exactly to the truth in every particular; and if such simple relation of my own true story will serve to deter any young man from taking the step which might result in placing him in circumstances equally bad, if not exactly the same as mine are, I shall feel—I was about say—fully paid for the trouble of this writing, and under ordinary circumstances that would be true; but just now I am inclined to think that the hope, destined quite likely to disappointment of receiving some remuneration of a more material kind has quite as much to do with the motive that prompts this article, as has the wish to do good to others.
 In the spring of this year, after quite a number of applications and negotiations by a business man, who took some interest in me, and who occasionally visited New York, I was at last, through his influence, provided with a situation as sort of a man-of-all-work in a wholesale provision store, at a salary of $8 per week, which I have since found was very liberal for a new man, who knew nothing of the business.
 Arrived in the city, I found that board in a respectable place would cost about six or seven dollars per week, and in as much as that included only two meals a day, on the ground of economy I concluded to do as very many other young men are doing, that is, hire a furnished room, and take my meals at a restaurant; but it is a lonely, joyless manner of existence, and I pity any poor human being who has any social element in his nature, who is obliged to live so. I paid $2.50 per week for my room, and thought with the remaining $5.50 I could get along very well, and perhaps lay aside a dollar or two a week towards buying clothing when needed, but I soon found that one unfortunate enough to possess as good an appetite as I, could easily expend $1 every day at even the cheapest eating saloon in the city, and not be extravagant in the matter either; an that the half-dollar a day, which I had calculated for the purpose, I could live on but very unsatisfactorily; so at the end of the first week, after paying room, board, washing and a few little incidental expenses, I found I had spent $8.82.
