The Emorium Gazette
He was no more ragged,
dirty or unkempt than the
dozens of other wanderers who
come to any newspaper office
every year to beg an old pa
per. He was, outwardly, just
another of the shifting, float
ing type of wanderers who fre
quent the Kansas towns, on
the way to and from the con
struction camps. But a hand
ful of city dailies did not dis
miss him.
"I wonder if you get the
paper from Kirksboro. 111.,
here," he asked. Then, half
explanatory, half-apologetic,
he said, "You see, I used to
live there,"
Someone went through the
pile of the exchanges, and
found the paper he sought, the
Kirksboro Sun, just an ordin
ary country weekly, full of
poorly printed and written,
type, and badly written news.
Tlhe visitor's thanks were more
profuse than for all the others,
and he went out.
Tfhalt little country paper was
the last tie that held a wander
ing casual laborer to a place he
once called home. Relatives
and friends who once lived
there had gone, or disowned
hitm as worthless, and a fail
ure. But the old weekly, with
its neighborhood gossip of
marriages, deaths, births, crops
and sickness, brought him
back again to memories of the
old home town. Some day,
the little weekly may draw him
home. He will make a new
start, and tfhe days of his wand
ering Will be past.
