Before taking the long, long journey.

02:24

––– I Know I'll get nothing but good news from you."

After a few months –

"Limpy Bill," the Boy's pal-

One pocketbook between them – usually empty —

"What good is a lavalier without a chain – She can't sew it on."


03:47

Final Notice


05:58

There were certain days of the week when she could be sure of a letter from him. There were Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday —


06:40

Dearest Mildred,

This little La Vallier caught my eye, and I thought you might like it. The pattern of the chain did not quite suit me, so I left it with the Tiffany expert to be altered.


07:01

My position with the De Vore Department Store grows in responsibility every day. My progress has been simply marvelous.

Be patient a little while longer. I hope to send for you just as soon as I can clear up four or five big business deals.

El Roi-Tan "Perfect Cigar"


"If it ain't Jim Taylor of Great Bend! You o-l-d rascal! How you have got on in the world _ _ _"

23 "Bill, you'd be surprised at the pull I've got with the cops. I can do anything _ and get

      away with it."

24 "I'll prove it to you. I'll kneel down behind, and you shove him over backwards. Then watch me square it."

25 "YOU'LL DO TIME FOR THIS! THE FIRST TIME I LAY EYES

     ON YOU AGAIN,
    I'LL PINCH YOU!"

26 "Shucks, you ain't seen nothin' _ I could climb one sixteen-stories high _ blindfolded."

27 Direct from "Tiffanys" _ via Silverstein & Son.

28 "Don't you think it's dangerous for a young man to be alone in the city, with so much money? _ _ _

29 _ _ _ If I were you, I wouldn't wait. I'd go to him right away."

30

  "I'll do it.

I'll surprise him!"

31 Mother instinct was right. The Boy is in great danger.

32 "_ _ _ 8-9-10-OUT!"

33 "Is this a yard and a half?"

34 "Who dropped that FIFTY DOLLAR BILL?"

35 "Go and adjust your apparel, young man. I shall report you to the General Manager."

36 "Very well, Mr Stubbs. I'll send for the young man."

37 The most wonderful city The Girl has ever seen _ except Great Bend.

38

 "Wrap this, please.

The lady is in a hurry."

39 "We're SO proud of you, Harold, and your w-o-n-d-e-r-f-u-l position."

40 "Must I personally supervise every sale that is made in

    this department?"

41 "Now observe me closely. I will illustrate the correct form of

       salesmanship."

42 "Oh yes. Our European buyer wants my advice. This is

    most important."

43 "The idea of working in your shirt sleeves! Think of the shock to our customers _ women of culture and refinement."

44 "Another complaint of this nature, and we will have to get along without your services.

   That will be all."

45 "I'm just dying to see your office.

      Please let me look."

46

 "But Harold, I DID

want to see your office."

47

  "Well then - just a peek.

But you must promise not to stay."

48

"BOY! Empty this basket.

Don't let me have to remind

     you again."

49 "Oh Harold, let me ring one _ And see who it will bring in."

50 STUBBS

51 _ _ _ I don't wish to be annoyed by any more of your petty complaints about personal appearance _ _ _

52 _ _ _ You know, you're no collar ad. yourself."

53 "That will be all."

54

     "Fire drill,

I try them out every day."

55 "Open your mouth and shut your eyes _ _ _"

56

  "She's fainted!

Get some water, quick!"

57 "And just think _ You've made money enough already for our little home."

58 "I must have left my purse in your office. Won't you please

     get it for me."

59 "I'd give a thousand dollars _ to anyone _ for a new idea _ One that would attract an enormous crowd to our store."

60 "Something is wrong with our exploitation! We simply are not getting the publicity that our position in the commercial world

     calls for."

61 "Will you give me a thousand dollars, sir - if - if - I can draw hundreds of people to

      our store?"

62 "Let's give the boy a chance. Think of the publicity in the newspapers. The De Vore Department Store will be all over the front pages."

63 "Will you climb the Bolton Building _ twelve floors _ for five hundred dollars?"

64 "Say, for five hundred dollars I'd climb to Heaven, an' hang by my heels from the pearly gates."

65 "Mrs Van Buren, have this young man send your car home. I'll be so glad to have you ride over to the

    club with me."

66

       "Darling,
 dreams do come true.

We'll be married tomorrow."

67 "I'll send you to the hotel

  in the car. Meet me
  here tomorrow at 3."

68 "Take this young lady to her hotel _ And Mrs Van Buren says you're through for the

         day."

69 "Good bye, darling. Tomorrow will be our lucky day."

70 The "Lucky Day" The press agent had been told to flood the town _

  He submerged it.

71 "Look! Thish guy ain't got any face. They mustta run outta ink."

72 BOLTON BUILDING As the "big hour"

 approaches

73 "Where does this bird

   start from?"

74

   "You lay low.

Maybe I can ditch him."

75 "Meet my lady frien' - From the Follies."

76 "There's only one way out. You climb to the second floor, an' duck through the window. Then I'll put on your coat an' hat, an' go the rest of the way. They'll never know the difference."

77 "Go on, you can do it.

 Only o-n-e floor."

78

 "I'M the Mystery Man.

I wanted to surprise you."

79 "You'll have to go one more floor _

     till I ditch the cop."

80 "Why dontcha take that net

 off? It's in your way."

81 "You've gotta keep on goin'

_ till I ditch the cop."

82 "Young man, don't you know you

 might fall and get hurt?"

83 "Come on, just this one floor,

  an' you'll be through."

84

  "You BE THERE,

or I will be THROUGH."

85 "Great! You got the right idea,

 kid. That's the best one 
    you've pulled yet."

86 "Make this next floor faster. I'm having a little difficulty in ditching the cop."

87 "Get out of here!

 Don't you know

the dog might fall?"

88 [in very small type] "I'll be right back __ Soon as I ditch the cop."
