The woman on tha other aide of
Eve said: “The girl that slept in that
cot last night is in the morgue to

"What—phat happened? Did ahe
get run over or something?” Eye
asked.
Several hollow laughs plerc.ed the
cold a'r
“What happened!" a pew, cracked
voice said. "»he died of a* 1 empty
belly. Same as ail of ua will if we
depend on this free soup they give
you at these charity institutions!"
tdllian and Kve felt more like cry-’
lng than laugh ing. Hut the room
echoed with the lint laughs of the
women.
The sheets of the cots smelled of
disinfectant. And the army blankets
were clammy.
But it was a bed. Tomorrow . , .
tomorrow might mean a job . . .
but there had been too many tomor
rows which brought nothing ...
only more heartache . . rpore
regret to Lillian that »he ever had
left home.
Her .body ached. Her ayes stung.
She sighed for herself —and for poor,
hrpye H\;s, who said so little pever
complained.
Twenty cents! Every cent they
had between them. Every cent! But
they lw»d a bed for tonight . . a
lumpy, cold bed. which smelled of
disinfectant and even so. felt crawly.
It offered np comfort, po rest. Lil
lian turned and turner! again. She
could not «tretch out. The tension
of her muscles was unbearable. She
would have to remove the suitcase
from the cot So she could lengthen
•her body.
Bhe counted the cots. There were
twenty-seven. Twenty-seven women
in the one room. A two small
windows.
There seemed no air in the room.
Not a fresh breath. Lillian crept out
of bed and went to qne of the little
window*. It was only partly pp and
. the gloae was grimy. But aha could
