What is this?
Optical character recognition (OCR) is an automated process that converts a digital image containing numbers and letters into computer-readable numbers and letters. The search engine used on this web site searches OCR-generated text for the word or phrase you are looking for. Please note that OCR is not 100 percent accurate. If the original image is blurry, has extraneous marks, or contains ornate font styles or very small text, the OCR process will produce nonsense characters, extraneous spaces, and other errors, such as those you may see on this page. In addition, the OCR process cannot interpret images and may ignore them or render them as strings of nonsense characters. Despite these drawbacks, OCR remains a powerful tool for making newspaper pages accessible by searching.

As tbe otlice door closed behind the retreating form of Hom er Dickson the stout stenographer sighed relievedly and drew a magazine from her desk. “I thought he'd never go,\ she said. The dapper bookkeeper took a silver quarter from his pocket nud flipped lt tow ard the office boy. “ P eanuts,\ be snid succinctly as lie spread the m o rn ing paper over his ledger and turned to the m a rket report. “ 1 saw Homer boatin’ it for tho fer ry,\ rem a rked Jim m y when he return ed with the peanuts and thoy had bepn divided info three portions. “I guess he’s good for tlie day.” “So he said,” agreed the bookkeeper, cracking shells and tossing them over his shoulder into tbe w aste paper bas ket with adm irable dexterity, \if you w ant the afternoon off. Miss Porter, you can have it,\ he said, with a smile. The stenographer smiled lazily aa tthe reached for another peanut. “Tbis suits me,” she m u rm u red, turning the pages of her magazine. Suddenly tho outer door opened and precipitated confusion upon the trio. A tall man, middle aged, with a strong, clean cut face and piercing dark eyes glanced from one to the other. “Mr. Dickson in?” he asked sharply. “Out,\ said the bookkeeper curtly, thrusting the new spaper into a draw cr and dipping pen into the Ink well. •“\When will he return?\ asked the stronger quietly. “H e didn't say. I think he’s gone for the day.\ replied the clerk ungrn ciously as be bont above his ledger. “I’ll w a it aw h ile,” rem arked the vis itor, seating him self in a chair and opening n notebook. Bray, the bookkeeper, shrugged his narrow shoulders and applied himself to his neglected work Miss Porter laid aside her magazine and thum ped noisily upon the typew riter, while. Jim m y sw e p t up the accum u lation of peanut shelis and filed letters with brisk attention. Tho s tranger s a t absorbed in his note book. m a k ing calculations with a stub by lead pencil. “Nice w e a ther for crops.” rem arked Bray, with a slight wink toward tlin stepograpber. Miss P o rter ruffled her flaxen poinpn dour and giggled. W e got our bay all in,\ said .Jimmy nasaliy, as he scuttled past tiie si ran ger on business inlent. “You re’cllect our old black hen?” w:ent on Bray facetiously. “ Waal, by gum, she laid a egg yesterday most as big as a grapefruit. I reckon on semi ing it to the county fail*.\ “Did Mr. Dickson mention having an appointm e n t with Mr Pen worth this m o rning?\ asked the rustic. A loaden silence settled ou lhe oflice Bray broke It a t la s t “P e n w o rth!’’ he gasped, w ith-a sick ly smile. “J. A u g u stus Pen worth?\ The stranger nodded im p a tiently and glanced a t his watch. “Did Mr Dick sou mention liavlng an engagement w ith me?” No, sir,” returned the bookkeeper respectfully. “I think he m u st be de lained somewhere. I’ll try to trace him by phone. Jim m y , give Mr. Pen w o rth n seat in Mr. Dickson’s oillce.\ Bray disappeared within the telephone booth wiih agitated countenance “Tell that idiot to keep away from the telephone. I'll w ait til) Mr. Dick son comes in,” growled the visitor so savagely th a t Jim m y skipped to obey The brutal message, conveyed verba tim , Mr. Bray emerged from the booth with a very red face and returned to his ledger, while Mr. Penwortb ac cepted a com fortable Turkish rocker ln the private office and lighted a long black cigar. “J. A u g ustus Penw o rlh, M ultimil lionaire nnd King of Finance.” Ro the special article in B ray's Sunday news paper had Capitalized him. Hls natiK w as as well known as (bat of the pres ident of the republic, and the entire office force had laughed openly at him. Bray w rithed on his high stool as he looked at tbe back of the millionaire's gray head, and he cursed his own bad m a n n ers in ridiculing the stranger. Bray was am bitious, and Pen worth w a s known to bo especially Interested in young men and If he knew them to be capable and willing to work could alw a y s find places for them in his nu merous industrial plauts. The book keeper hud read the article in the Sun day paper, and his im agination had been Bred with tho possibilities that would open out if he should ever cross the path of the great man. H e re he w aa—J. Augustus Pen worth, and Bray hnd ridiculed hlml It was too much to bear calmly, yet tlio book keeper solaced him self with the thought th a t perhaps tho millionaire hnd been too much absorbed in his notebook to heed the idle chattering of the office force. Bray's usual alert ledger to vault and spoke with an air of authority. Altogether he showed hlui*elf vo be a mnn of considerable affairs All the lim e he was plu;isaiit- ly aw;ire that the greal financier h::d wheeled his chair about and was winching wiih curious inlentiiess). After awhile when business hnd qui'-teii down the financier beckoned , the bookkeeper into the private otlice, ami ns the gratllied Bray paused be- j fore him Pen worth asked: I “ Uow long bave you been with Mr. Dickson V\ \Ten years,\ stam m ered Bray ex citedly. “And I suppose you are satisfied with your position?\ \W ell—not exactly, sir. You see, , there is no chance for advancem ent.” “Il'in—I can imagine not—here!” \How much is Dickson paying you now?” demanded J. Augustus P e n worlh “Fifteen hundred, sir.” “I'll give you three thousand,” snap ped out Penworth. \1 like your looks, and you're ju s t the sort of chap I'd i like to have around—young, active and , businesslike. W hat do you say?\ Bray gasped. “ Why, yes. sir—thank , you. sir! I shall be delighted” - he stuttered. \Can you come to me tom o rrow?” asked Penworth. The bookkeeper hesitated a brief in stant. then: “Yes, sir, I will come to morrow. Of course Mr. Dickson could uot expect me to refuse such au ex cellent offer.” he said reflectively. \Of course not—even If you have been with him ten years,\ rejoined Penworth grimly, \Now Mr.— e r ” - “ B ray—H a rry Bray, sir.\ “Mr. Bray suppose yon sit right down and pen a letter of resignation to Mr. Dickson. 1 like to have these m a tters cleared up a s I go along, other wise I’m ap t to forget them. If you resign now I can put you right into our main office here to fill an im p o r tan t vacancy. There are w riting ma terials here on this small table.\ The bookkeeper sa t down and nerv ously inditPd a brief epistle to hls em ployer, in which he form ally resigned his position, stating his reasons for doing so and generously waiving ail salary due him in lieu of longer notice. This he closed iu au envelope which he scaled aud addressed. Mr. Penw o rth held out his hand for it and regarded the envelope with a thoughtful smile. \Now that's settled.” he said, “1 suppose you'll want to settle up your books, Mr Bray. I'm rather impressed with tbe rapidity with which that young woman out there operates her machine. Now. I’m in need of just such au expert stenographer, and while I suppose it doesn’t look exactly square to take Dickson’s help aw ay from him—it’s all in tlie business and I pay my people well. Send her to me, will you?\ Miss' P o rter was flattered and charm ed to accept a position iu tiie luxuri ously appointed offices of Penw o rth & Co. a t double her present salary. Soon er or later ability will meet with its proper reward, she told herself, while she was w riting her letter of instant resignation at Pen w o rth’s dictation. He held the two letters in his hand ond regarded them thoughtfully. Jim m y drooped forlornly when he heard the whispered confidences of tho other. He had uot read “From Office Boy to M illionaire\ for nothing, and here was his chance to rise J. Augus tus Penworth was pushing people along on the upw ard path. Why could not honest Jim m y Lee be am ong the risers? T h a t w as how it happened that he approached the great man and respect fully asked for a Job ns office boy, and he got It. Twice the salary he had been receiving caused his eyes to s p a r kle joyously. Mr. Penw o rth had ju s t told him th a t be could w rite a letter of resignation when there was tiie sound of rapid footsteps in the corri dor outside.
