Excerpt: ...As he hung up the receiver George turned to his friends and said, "What would you fellows say if I told you that I had some word about the car?" "We would all say that it was a good word, anyway," said Fred promptly. "I was just talking to my father who told me that he had received a telegram this morning from Newburgh." "That's in New York State," spoke up Fred. "Correct," answered George. "I'm glad that for once in your life you are correctly informed."

"Going to take Uncle Sim with you?" inquired Grant. "No," answered George. "I'll have to leave him to look after the place!" "How long before we start?" inquired John. "About three minutes. Are you going with us to-day?" "You're right I am," declared John. "I stayed home yesterday to make my own investigations in the old Meeker House." "And you have finished them all?..".show more
