"A day or two before Thanksgiving day there came a snow-storm. It began in the afternoon, and by evening two inches had fallen. Jurgis tried to wait for his wife, but went into a saloon to get warm, and took two drinks, and came out and ran home to escape from the demon; there he lay down to wait for her, and instantly fell asleep."

Chapter Fifteen in Upton Sinclair's original serial for Appeal to Reason, the unexpurgated version of what became "The Jungle."
