ON THE STREET GAR.
The street car bounced and rumbled
over the crooked rails, and swung noisi
ly around the corner. I was Bitting with
my back to tho front platform and was
facing overyone. I had stared at them
all at the pretty shop girl opposite mo
with tho big wondering blue eyes, shad
ed by long silky lashes.; at the clerk be
side in a new brown checked suit; at a
tall, pale brunette in one corner who
looked proud and dignified enough to
be the daughter of a hundred earls but
that s'io was chatting incessantly to her
companion and then I remembered that
she sold hairpins and notions in a large
dry goods 6tore. On tho rear sat a tall,
round-shouldered man with a stubby
gray beard and wearing a shiny black
coat and no necktie, slapped his knee
and waved his right hand aloft, in tell
ing a little man with a tin dinner pail
about tho war and how it should bo
conducted. On tho rear platform there
were several boys, some pulling labori
ously at big cigars and others whistling
loud some popular air. In their midst
was the conductor, tall and good-natured,
with a large spray of spirea on
his coat lapel.
The car tore madly down a little hill
and went on smoothly at the bottom.
Then it slowed for somebody to get on
and finally stopped altogether. I looked
out. Beside the car was a little womau
carrying a huge bundle of soiled clothes
in a dusty sheet. She was very slight
and her face, shaded by a torn sun hat,
was thin and pointed. She wore a faded
blue wrapper which Happed about her
as she moved. Tho sleeves came but a
little below her elbow, leaving her thin,
red arms bare. She walked hastily to
the front of the car, staggering a little
under her burden, and I heard her say to
"Weren't you were to take these
down to Nem, w'act you, Ned? Won't
you take 'em now? I've waited so long."
I leaned forward to hear the answer.
There was an indistinct growl and the
car started abruptly. As it tlew on up
the street, 1 saw the women walk back
to the stairway in the building she had
left and throw the big bundle with all
her force on the ground. Then she sat
down beside it, and I could see her
whole slight little body shake with her
sobs. I turned around and looked at
the mctorman. His face was Hushed
dark and his blue eyes were bright with
anger. He had red hair and his
shoulders were very rounded. Away in
the distance, with the big brick building
for a background I could see the white
bundle and beside it the forlorn blue
little figure with the head in the lap.
And the clerks and the shop girls chat
ted on and in the corner the old man
was still telling "how to Hi k Spain."
