Madame Haupt comes down the ladder of the attic. She looks like “one of the workers on the killing-beds. Her hands and arms were smeared with blood, and blood was splashed up on her clothing and her face.” She scolds Jurgis and the other women for leaving Ona in such a bad condition. She tells Jurgis that she has called for a priest and that there is nothing she can do for the woman. She is going to be dead in a short while, and the baby is stillborn. If Jurgis had money, he would have been able to afford a proper doctor in a sterilized hospital. Both Ona and the baby would have probably survived.
