Jurgis’s greatest joy is his son, Antanas, who is growing strong. The boy seems to learn how to talk more and more every time that Jurgis sees him. Every Sunday, Jurgis buys a five-cent paper, and Antanas takes great pleasure in the pages of cartoons and comics. Jurgis heals from his wound, picks up his bedding, and returns to the steel mill. We just know that Antanas' death will break Jurgis. After Ona's death, Jurgis's spirit was crushed. The death of his son might finish him.
