13 YEARS BY ELECTRICITY
THEN SHE CHOSE GAS
For thirteen long years Adelaide
Morton sold dress goods in Marshall
Field's fine store. Then her eyes be
gan to fail. Miss Morton found it
hard to distinguish colors under the
artificial light in which she spent her
days for 13 years.
So, when she slowed up, Adelaide
was fired and another girl, fresh as
she was when she came to Field's,
took her place behind her counter.
Miss Morton was 38 and a doctor
told her that the eyes would never re
cover from the long years of abuse
under electric light And her money
was going fast
She tried several of the State st
stores for another job, but the thick
glasses she had to wear betrayed her
secret and she was refused a chance
to earn a living behind the counter.
Saturday Adelaide had reached the
end. She dragged herself up three
floors to the little room at 1944 North
Park av. and rested. All day Sunday
she stayed in her room alone.
Then came Monday, when she al
ways hurried down to the store for
the early sales. There was no place
for her now at Field's.
Adeliaide rose and turned on the
as. Then she sat down quickly with
out lighting it An hour later the body
was found by another roomer.
