A Ride for Life--ConclusionJack North's Treasure HuntChapter IA Chance for a Position"Where are you going, Jack?""To the shops of John Fowler & Company.""To look for a job?""Yes.""Then you are in luck, for I heard this morning that they want anotherstriker in the lower shop at once.""Then I'll <i>strike</i> for the opening at once, and my name is not JackNorth if I don't land it.""It will be John Slowshanks when you do get it, mind me!" cried outanother voice, from an alley-way near at hand, and before Jack North orhis companion could recover from their surprise the speaker, a tall,awkward youth of twenty, sped up the street at the top of his speed.The scene was in Bauton, a large manufacturing city of New England. Thefirst speaker was a workman at the shops that had been mentioned, butbeyond the fact that he placed the youth before him in the way of gettingwork, he needs no special introduction.The other person was a lad of eighteen, with brown, curly hair, blue eyes,and a round, robust figure. His name was John North, and he was the son ofa couple in humble circumstances."Take care!" cried the man, "that sneak will get in ahead of you, and thena snap of your little finger for your chance of getting the job atFowler's."Jack North did not stop to hear his friend through. He was very much inneed of a situation, and he knew the young man who had rushed in ahead ofhim as a bitter enemy. That fact, coupled with his desire to get work,caused him to dash up the street as fast as he could run.Naturally the appearance of the two running at such a headlong pace
