The Spanish Treasure a Story

Excerpt from The Spanish Treasure a Story Any casual passer would have described these two as a fashionable young woman and a poor girl. The first paused as she reached the corner of Thirty-fourth street; the other girl also paused, a few feet distant. The street was crowded, as it usually is at that time of day, and several surface cars were passing rapidly in various directions. The snow of two days past made a deep, slushy mire, as slippery and dangerous to walk through as it was unpleasant to see. The young lady, who was not accustomed to walking, and had no sense of the danger of that particular crossing, suddenly tossed her little head and, with a slight laugh, plunged forward into the' chaos of moving vehicles and horses. The movement was so unexpected that a policeman, who had been coming to her assistance, stood still and gave utterance to a few vehement remarks explosive exclamations, apparently from every point of the com pass, were blown about through the air; all sorts of vehicles backed hurriedly and their wheels became interlocked. Several horses performed impromptu circus-feats of standing on their hind-legs, and all the drivers swore loudly, heartily and with much apparent relish. Out of this wild commotion the young lady presently emerged on the other side of the street, her arm closely held in the firm grasp of the poor girl, and both young women were now equally pale.
