Mister Ron's Basement #971

Our Monday book serialization is George Ade's 1903 collection, 'In Babel -- Stories of Chicago.' The stories in this book range from the hysterically funny to the pathetically sad. Altogether, they paint a fascinating portrait of turn-of-the-last-century Chicago.

Today's tale deals with a bored sailor, tired of working on a grain steamer up and down the river in 'Opening of Navigation.'

Time: approx ten minutes
