Sylvester, ten years old, ""Only helps in the mill afternoons and Saturdays."" ""But if I was twelve,"" he said, ""I'd go to work to-morrow."" The other boy, Floyd, said he was thirteen, but he doesn't seem to be. He said, ""I sweeps. Get thirty cents a day. Sweepin' keeps you at it right steady. Not much chance to rest. You have to be twelve to work.""
