vent my raising money at the time of the Big Jam, when I was pinched,” said he. “Frank Taylor straightened nike air max 90 it out for me. You can see him. As a matter of fact, most of that land I bought outright from the original homesteaders, and the rest from a bank. I was very particular. There’s cheap nike air max one 160 I wouldn’t take on that account.”
“Well, that’s all right,” said Welton, his jolly eyes twinkling. “Why the secrecy?”
“I wanted a business for Bob when he should grow up,” explained Orde; “but I didn’t want any of this ‘rich man’s son’ business. Nothing’s worse for a boy than to feel that everything’s cut and dried for him. He is to understand that he must go to work for somebody else, and stand strictly on his own feet, and make good on his own efforts. That’s why I want you to break him in.”
“All right. And about this partnership?”
“I want you to take charge. I can’t leave Washington. We’ll get down to details later. Bob can work for yo nike air max classic u there the same as here. By and by, we’ll see whether to tell him or not.”
The twilight had fallen, and the shores of the river were lost in dusk. The surface of the water itself shone with an added luminosity, reflecting the sky. In the middle distance twinkled a light, beyond which in long stretches lay the sombre marshes.
“That’s the club,” said Orde. “Now, if you disgrace me, you old duffer, I’ll use you as a decoy!”
A few moments later the two men, opening the door of the shooting-box, plunged into a murk of blue tobacco smoke. A half-dozen men greeted them boisterously. These were just about to draw lots for choice of blinds on the morrow. A savoury smell of roasting ducks came from the tiny kitchen where Weber–punter, ke nike air max 90 sale eper, duck-caller and cook–exercised the last-named function. Welton drew last choice, and cheap nike air max was commiserated on his bad fortune. No one offered to give way to the guest, however. On this point the rules of the Club were inflexible.
Luckily the weather changed. It turned cold; the wind blew a gale. Squalls of light snow swept the marshes. Men chattered and shivered, and blew on their wet fingers, but in from the great open lake came myriads of water-fowl, seeking s nike air max 1 helter, and the sport was grand.
“Well, old stick-in-the-mud,” said Orde as, at the end of two days, the men thawed out in a smoking car, “ducks enough for you?”
“Jack,” said Welton solemnly, “there are no ducks in Minnesota. They’ve all come over here. I’ve had the time of my life. And about that other thing: as soon as our woods work is under way, I’ll run out to California and look over the ground–see how easy it is to log that country. Then we can cheap nike air max talk business. In the meantime, send Bob over to the Chicago office. I’ll let Harvey break him in a little on the office work until I get back. When will he show up?”
Orde grinned apologetically.
“The kid has set his heart on coaching the team this fall, and he don’t want to go to work until after the season,” said he. “I’m just an old fool enough to tell him he could wait. I know he ought to be at it now–you and I were, long before his age; but—-”
“Oh, shut up!” interrupted nike air max Welton, his big body shaking all over with mirth. “You talk like a copy-book. I’m not a constituent, and you needn’t run any bluffs on me. You’re tickled to death with that boy, and you are hoping that team will lick the everlasting daylights out of Chicago, Thanksgiving; and you wouldn’t miss the game or have Bob out of the coaching for the whol nike air max e of California; and you know it. Send him along when you get ready.”
Part 1 Chapter 2
Bob Orde, armed with a card of introduction to Fox, Welton’s office partner, left home directly after Thanksgiving. He had heard much of Welton & Fox in the past, both from his father and his father’s associates. The firm name meant to him big things in the past history of Michigan’s industries, and big things in the vague, large life of the Northwest. Therefore, he was considerably surprised, on finding the firm’s Adams Street offices, to observe their comparative insignificance.
He made his way into a narrow entry, containing merely a high desk, a safe, some letter files, and two bookkeepers. Then, cheap nike air max trainers without challenge, he walked directly into a large apartment, furnished as simply, with another safe, a typewriter, several chairs, and a large roll-top desk. At the latter a man sprawled, reading a newspaper. Bob looked about for a further door closed on an inner private office, where the weighty business must be transacted. There was none. The tall, broad, lean young man hesitated, looking about him with a puz nike air max sale zled expression in his earnest young eyes. Could this be the heart and centre of those vast and far-reaching activities he had heard so much about?
After a moment the man in the revolving chair looked up shrewdly over his paper. Bob felt himself the object of an instant’s searching scrutiny from a pair of elderly steel-gray eyes.
“Well?” said the man, briefly.
“I am looking for Mr. Fox,” explained Bob.
“I am Fox.”
The young man moved forward his great frame with the easy, loose-jointed grace of the trained athlete. Without comment he handed his card of introduction to the seated man. The latter glanced at it, then back to the young fellow before him.
“Glad to see you, Mr. Orde,” he unbent slightly. “I’ve been expecting you. If you’re as good a man as your father, you’ll succeed. If you’re not as good a man as your father, nike air max sale you may get on–well enough. But you’ve got to be some good on your own account. We’ll see.” He raised his voice slightly. “Jim!” he called.
One of the two bookkeepers appeared in the doorway.
“This is young Mr. Orde,” Fox told him. “You knew his father at Monrovia and Redding.”
The bookkeeper examined Bob dispassionately.
“Harvey is our head man here,” went on Fox. “He’ll take charge of you.”
He swung his leg over the arm of his chair and resumed his newspaper. After a few moments he thrust the crumpled sheet into a huge waste basket and turned to his desk, where he speedily lost himself in a mass of letters and papers.
Harvey dis nike air max 95 appeared. Bob stood for a moment, then took a seat by the window, where he could look 2
