EARLY HISTORY OF CLOUD COUNTY
BY H.E. SMITH
JULY 30, 1875
An Old Soldier
Gottlieb counted the days with haggard restlessness, a slow fever consuming his veins, pain gnawing at the very sources of life. While daylight lasted he dragged himself about the streets in search of food, at least, for Mother Bates's little brood. When he returned at night Christine was romping with the children. The old woman, whose wrinkled brown face, framed in a black hood, was a landmark on the thoroughfare where she vended fruit, recklessly dispensed apples at the evening meal, observing Gottlieb sharply the while. Little Molly, bright-eyed and saucy, with a ragged shawl pinned over her head, was making money in the slush and mire. Fear of the police kept Christine from joining in street-sweeping. Sleep refused to visit Gottlieb's weary senses. What visions came to him in the night? On Tuesday morning Mother Bates said:
"You come to the dispensary, my man." "What's the use? It's all the old wounds and the fever." Then he added, with sudden tears in his eyes, "God bless you, good woman, for taking us in. Tomorrow, I draw the pension." Thus did he identify himself already with the Swedish maiden.
Mother Bates scoffed loudly at sentiment, then paused at the foot of the staircase to wipe her own eye on her gingham apron. Gottlieb was out all day. When he came back he gave his hostess a fifty-cent bill, with no other explanation than that he obtained a "job" in a warehouse despite his one arm. Excitement robbed him of all appetite for food. He spent a second night with wide eyes fixed on the ceiling, counting the hours, delirium creeping over his senses. If he could only last until tomorrow! He would last, even if he crept to the goal on hands and knees. Desperate resolution made him face the day; desperate energy took him, pallid and trembling, to his post, and brought him back at dusk to sink down speechless on Mother Bates' pallet. The fire of life only burned in the sunken eyes. When Christine sat beside he bed, he was quiet; when she moved away, a spasm of anxiety distorted his features. Billy ran for the doctor; Molly hushed the other children; the baby hid his head in Mother Bates' lap. The doctor was out.
"So I went for him" said Billy, glancing curiously and half nervously at the sick man. The noise of the street reached this quiet room only in a distant murmur. A step was heard on the stair. Mother Bates moved uneasily.
