anger , any allusion, to remuneration.
There were from IS to 20 pupils In the

his home in Weimar three times weekly,-

Three times during! -those seven weeks
my father got less pay ; than he ought
to. ; First-time he spoke to the foreman,
so he added 11.66 to it: second time h
again got less, no he spoke about ly so
he added $1.40 to. It, and -third time, on
the t2d -of ' November, 1 12, he earned
19.45. so they wanted to give him tt-bb
When he spoke about It that he did
not get as much as he ought to, so the
superintendent s . friend, Paul also a
weaver sprang to him with a xnue anq
shuttle and made him a few hole In the
head. , When be sat there and the blood
waa dripping from him, so the superin
tendent came and told him to walk out
of the mill. Then my father told him
that he is too weak to walk, and that he
should get a doctor and . the police, v So
he went and rot three persons, and the
four took him and throw Wra out in the
boiler-room. - ; ,
'A man that worked right next to him
took him by the hand and leaded; him to
the: police station.-'. About two hours
passed before they reached there, so he
lost a lot of -blood and afterward ne
lay three weeks In bed. ; Before his head
haH-d jt'took about three months. Not
enough that they paid ; very : little, so
they took about 3.s rrom tne sman
pay. yet. We ar five children, and we
