big town. Going to run a
train driven by electricity!
Going to run a train bearing
fifteen hundred human be
ings, each of whom has put
his life, for a time, In her
son's keeping! Such confi
dence as the company must
have had In her boy to in
trust him with so grave a
responsibility. Oh, it is such
a comfort to her to know
that her son, whom she has
loved since she felt his first
heart-beat; for whom she has
toiled and suffered and de
nied herself-it Is such a
comfort to her to know that
he has been recognized at
what she knows to be his
true worth, by the most won
derful city in the world.
A year later, what rejoicing
there was in. the little home
when the boy wrote that he
was comIng back on a vaca
tion. Mother could hardly
read the letter, she was so
* .~ excited. Ran to the fields to
tell father. Ran back to get
___ dinner. Coud hardly cook
burned the eggs to a cr-isp,
something slie had not done
in thirty years, and had to fry sonme more. In such
a hurry to put on her "other dr-ess" and run over to
Mrs. Pratt's to tell her: "Mly boy is coming home."
The boy came home, When he took mother in
his arms andl held her for a full minute, she couldn't
speak. All choked up. So glad to see him, she
couldn't say a word. And, when she did speak, the
first thing she said, as she looked up into his brown
eyes, was: "Oh, my boy, howv pale you arc!"
H-e was pale. Hie knew it. S'ubway air makes no
redl blood-corpuscles. Kills some of the red ones
tihat exist. Nor does the electric light of the sub
way brown the cheek as the sunlight browns the
cheek or the far-mier. All the year that he had
been away, mother- had carried In her mind the plc
tumre of her farnmer boy. Never had dreamed that
her farmier boy would come home with a grayish
white facq. Didn't need to say she was shocked.
Looked it. The boy caught the message and laugh
ingly relhied:
"Oh, mother, all city folks are pale."
During the week that lhe reniained at home, the
boy was kept talking. Father and mother con
stantly asking questions, Seemed to miother as If
she couldn't ask questions enough. Wanted to get
first-hiand informationi about everything of which
she had read.
Six months after he returned to work, his mother
had an opportunity to see for herself, just how big
was New York. A telegrani told her that her boy
had been hurt. She nnd father found him in a hoe
pital, with his head bandaged until they could bare
ly see his eyes. At the end of his run, he had
tried to cross the tracks to catch another traIn back
and get to dinner more quickly. Didn't see a train
running in the opposite dlirection. Car struck him.
Picked up for dead. Seemed to have a fractured
skull. Fortunately, did not. Revived in the hos
pital and would get well.
Oh, but the mother's heart was glad when she
heard the best instead of the worst, Glad until she
and fathier went to the boy's room, Not his room
in the hospital, but his room In a lodging-house,
Glad until she saw how miserably he had lived. A
dirty street. A dirty house. A dirty hall. A cheer
less room. Little light. Bad air. A skimpy bed. A
frayed counterpane, Not a decoration, save her
own picture, stuck in the edge of a mirror-.
Her boy could afford no better place to live. His
pay' was only $2.25 a day. That is his pay from
the company was only $2.25 a day. The lire of
New' York made up the rest that was needed to in
duco him to stay,
Such is life for millions in New York. Not life
as the newspaper dispatches describe it. Not life
as the stage pictures it. Life as it is,
A few draw colossal prizes. A few more draw
good prizes. Bunt if only those should come te New
