Jurgis is out in the blittery cold. He doesn't have anywhere to go, he does not even have a coat to cover himself of the cold. He needs to find a place to get warmed up, so he tries a saloon.
The saloons that Jurgis goes into, gets full. And the manager starts to kick out some people, he kicks out Jurgis. Again finds himself out in the cold blittery cold. He is so desperate to find a place to stay in.
