EARLY HISTORY OF CLOUD COUNTY
By H.E. Smith

Experiences in the City

 One glance was enough for me to decide not to accept the proffered hospitality, but I begged the doorman to allow me a moment for observation. To give an adequate description of the scene, I am not able; nothing less than the pen of Dante or the pencil of Dore could do the subject justice. The stench and mixture of stenches that rose in the air, the gibes and blasphemies, prayers and curses from many of the half drunk or crazy inmates, the occupation of one or two in the corner picking the vermin from their bodies, and the general appearance of extreme filth, the yells and moans of the women in the next room—all these made an impression on me which I shall not soon forget.
 On the street I again met the policeman who had directed my way to this place; he kindly loaned me a quarter. Lately I have stayed for a few nights at a place in the lower part of the city, which is maintained for the aid of the homeless by the munificence of a well-known citizen of this city.
 At the present moment I imagine my prospects for the future are a little brighter than they have been. I pray it may not be only imagination. And in closing I have only to say: Young man, unless you are possessed of money enough to be independent, or have a positive engagement with a responsible firm, don't come to the great city. I arrive at this conclusion not only from my own experience, but from that of many others whom I have either come in actual contact with or had knowledge of; men who have been merchants and lawyers, as well as clerks and artisans, and men of all degrees of ability, from low medium to high, don't come here to wait for something to turn up.
