1 That was always what Jurgis said.
2 Jurgis was like a boy, a boy from the country.
3 There had been one son besides Jurgis, and one sister.
4 Jurgis talked lightly about work, because he was young.
5 Jurgis listened in silence, with his great black eyebrows knitted.
6 They live only two blocks away, and Jurgis does not care about the carriage.
7 Finally there came Jurgis, urged by some one, and the story was retold to him.
8 So Jurgis went home with a heavy heart, and that spring and summer toiled and tried hard to forget.
9 It was nearly a year and a half ago that Jurgis had met Ona, at a horse fair a hundred miles from home.
10 Grandfather Anthony, Jurgis' father, is not more than sixty years of age, but you would think that he was eighty.
11 Jurgis, without a word, lifts Ona in his arms, and strides out with her, and she sinks her head upon his shoulder with a moan.
12 And this was the fact, for Jurgis had never seen a city, and scarcely even a fair-sized town, until he had set out to make his fortune in the world and earn his right to Ona.
13 Jurgis has drunk a great deal, as any one naturally would on an occasion when it all has to be paid for, whether it is drunk or not; but he is a very steady man, and does not easily lose his temper.
14 Then the tears begin to come into her eyes; and as she is ashamed to wipe them away, and ashamed to let them run down her cheeks, she turns and shakes her head a little, and then flushes red when she sees that Jurgis is watching her.
15 The young men, who for the most part have been huddled near the door, summon their resolution and advance; and the shrinking Jurgis is poked and scolded by the old folks until he consents to seat himself at the right hand of the bride.
16 That was why he had been picked out on one important occasion; for Jurgis had stood outside of Brown and Company's "Central Time Station" not more than half an hour, the second day of his arrival in Chicago, before he had been beckoned by one of the bosses.
17 Jurgis could take up a two-hundred-and-fifty-pound quarter of beef and carry it into a car without a stagger, or even a thought; and now he stood in a far corner, frightened as a hunted animal, and obliged to moisten his lips with his tongue each time before he could answer the congratulations of his friends.
