A Helping Hand (Classic Reprint)
Excerpt from A Helping Hand The people resented it bitterly. Nature was taking a liberty With their dear, dirty street. A pitiless wind howled down the chimneys, blowing the smoke in all directions, while the rain dashed against the window-panes. In a great many houses the Window panes were no more, and in these cases the rain dashed inside, as if anxious to do a little cleansing there. This idea was frustrated at once by the angry owners of the paneless windows, who indignantly pinned up sheets of grimy newspaper to avoid further insult.
