EARLY HISTORY OF CLOUD COUNTY
BY H.E. SMITH
AN ENGINEER'S YARN

Now, it is about this manager and this paper-box factory that my story, such as it is, will be; and to make things all straight and plain (a sort of oiling up at the start), let me attempt to describe them both.
First, then, the manager, Mr. Samuel Harkness, also sole owner of the factory. This Mr. Samuel Harkness was the greatest villain I ever came across. He's dead now, poor man, and I hate to speak ill of those who are gone, 'cause, you see, it's much the same as chinning behind a man's back; but he was a villain all the same. Not one of your story-book villains, either. I have read lots of novels, romances and such stuff lately, but I haven't seen anything about their villains that applies to my villain. Theirs are invariably thin, dark men, of lithe, serpentine motion, with yellow faces, straight black hair, and deep-set fugitive eyes. Something of the evil one cropping out at every point. Why, Lord bless  you, you'd recognize this kind of villain soon as ever you clapped eyes on him, just as you would a patent machine, with every bit of metal labeled. My villain wasn't tall, wasn't dark at all was tolerably stout, in fact, and well-to-do looking; didn't squirm a bit; and to cut this description short, was just like most anybody else you meet.
Now for the factory itself. It was a somewhat dilapidated five-story brick concern. Engine in cellar (most every manufacturer had his own power then, instead of just belting on to the one big engine of the block, as they do now); office and samples, first floor; clipping and folding machines, second floor; girls pasting, sorting and trimming on the third floor; stock of all sorts on the fourth and fifth. We used to turn out an immense deal of work with very few hads. There were about twenty-five or so girls, the manager, his clerk and office-boy, a man to hoist and do odd jobs, the fireman, and myself.
