THOCOHTFUL INTERE8T.
"They came to thi. country In the fall of ]S34.
Mr. Irvlnjr was aequainted wlth a man on the
North Rlver who ran a boller .hop. and he jrot
placc-a there for my father and my oldest brother. ,
who was two yeara youna-er than I was, and
they worked there for a good many yeara. I :
Hved with Mr. Irvintf for two years nnd then
ho cajne to mo and he told me that to be a
Walter all my life was not good. and I had better
learn a trade. 11* aald that I mlght want to get j
married, and that waltlng on table waa not a |
good buslness for a married man. So he put mo
ln the samr- trade ns my father was, the lran
trade. Iiut I only worked ther* for two days.
I couldn't stnnd lt. I used to k?ep out of Mr.
Irving's way after that, beeause he had been bo
good and kind to me. and I had not Btayed at
the trad-."
As the old man told thls a falnt smlle llghted
up his face for a moment, hut there was an ele
ment of sadness ln lt. He paused for a moment '
and then went on: "After that I went Into the I
hatting trarle. flnishlng silk hats. There. wera
unlona then, just the aame as there are now, and j
I worked at the husineps for two years. I used
tO make my twelve hats every day, nnd they
nsed to pay me 25 centt aplrce for the work. ,
Then when I had flnished my 'prentlcethlp
tha unlons busted up, and they would only pay J
ptx cents aplece for the work. Th<-y wanted me
to work for this price, but I sald, Xo, I wotildn't.
So 1 gave it up. nnd knocked around for a whlle.
I jolrted the Flre Department. Not the kind l
that they have now, hut the old one. I belonged |
to the old Rtinker Hlll Knglne, No. .'"2.
"Then. after a whlle. I wenl Smith and worked j
on a Satboat or. th. Savannah Rlver. Then .
I came back to N> w-Y.rk and. after stnying !
