EARLY HISTORY OF CLOUD COUNTY
BY H.E. SMITH
 An Engineer's Yarn
 When stock was taken in, or work sent out, there was nobody else in the building. I generally kept to my own business, and stayed down in the cellar, nursing the old engine. She sadly needed it, being as rickety and patched up a contrivance as one cares to stay alongside of.
She always reminded me of some old people you see, who are always in need of a pectoral for a cough, or a liniment for rheumatism, or something or other. This engine of mine was in such a state that she always wanted easing somewhere, a rivet here, a plug there, new stuffing, more felting, or a band around the whole boiler. From boiler to fly wheel she was rickety, rickety. There was no present danger to be apprehended—all was safe enough with proper care and attention. There was the rub. I had to exercise the same proper care and attention all the time. If I was so occupied, I could not help meeting the girls now and then in the passage-way. Most of them were of the common sort—coarse, vulgar creatures, that I never could abide.
 There was only one little pale faced girl I took to straight off. She wasn't a bit like the others, and seemed as nice and quiet and lady-like, as they were noisy and common. As I said, I took to her, and she—well, she didn't altogether snub me. We got to be fast friends soon. She told me the tale of her sad life; how her father had been a prosperous mechanic, and they had lived in such a dear little home; how the father died, and left her, a mere mite of a thing, in charge of her feeble mother and baby sister; and how she contrived to get along and keep grim famine from the door on the pittance of her earnings. Whenever I could, without making a fuss, I helped them along a little. When we got well acquainted, I used to hurry through my work so as to be able to see her home every day after six o'clock. Sometimes too, we used to go to concerts and lectures together; and very often I found time to visit them all of an evening.
I hadn't said a word of love to her yet, but was waiting till my wages were increased enough to enable me to keep a home of my own, and then ask her to fill it. Of her state of feeling toward me I knew nothing, except that she looked upon and trusted me as a brother.
