They approached one of the checkers. "The manager," John said easily. The checker pressed o buzzer •nd n clarion call went up nil over the store. After a moment a man wearing a tan jacket approached the checker. The later Indicated Johnny. "He wants to see you." "No-no," said Johnny to the manager. "I want to sec Mr. Carmichacl." The manager looked nt Johnny puzzled. "Who?" "Jess Carmichael. The boss." The store manager's eyes suddenly narrowed. "What's the Idea?" "I want to talk to Old Jess. This is his store, isn't it?" "Yes," said the grocery manager. "It's his store, all right. Store No. 1144." Sam tugged at Johnny's sleeve. "Hey, does he moan Carmichacl's got 1144 stores?" "Twenty-one hundred and fifty-nine," said the store manager, "unless he's opened a couple of dozen today that I don't know •bout," Johnny nodded. "Old Jess must bo rolling in it. Well, that's fine, just fine. Now if you'll tell him that I'd like to see him." "You must be crazyl" the store manager finally exploded. "You expect him to be here—selling groceries, maybe?" "Why aol?" The man tried hard to compose himself. "Look, mister, a joke's a joke, but I'm a busy man. Will you so and bother somebody else?" 'Is it too much bother for Mr. Carmirhnel to talk to s customer?" demanded Johnny. "I've spent a lot of money in Carmichael stores and I think the least Carmichael can do—" "Go away!" cried the store m;inn£or. "I'm busy. "So's Mr. Carmichael." "So am I," snapped Johnny. "Do I se« the boss, or don't I?" "I've never seen him," gritted the grocery man. "I wouldn't know him if I did. He's never been in this store and he'll probably never come In." • • • "THAT'S a funny way to run a business," growled Johnny. "Man owns so many stores, he can't even get around to look at them. All right, if he isn't here, where can I find him?" "How should I know?" "That sounds silly," Johnny proceeded. "Suppose something happens? Who do you cull?" "The district manager." "Does he know Carmichael?" "How do I know?" "Somebody's got, to kpow. Somebody's got to be able to get to Cermichael." "Sure, sure. There's somebody 'way, 'way up, who probably even knows where he lives—" "He lives in Manhasset," suddenly salt! the checker, beside the store manager. "I read it in a magazine once." "Thanks," Johnny snid to the Checker. "You're a bright alert worker. Some day you'll bo manager o( this store and he"— nodding to the manager—"will be holding down your job." Outside Sam snid, "M.inhns- set?" "Yep. Mmm, that's out on Long Iiland. Probably cost us I more than a buck apiece round trip on the Long Island Railroad. We've only got $1.45, thanks to that appetite of yours." We got the pennies and dimes-—" "I'm not going to spend those. And we can't spend the rent money." i "Walking, Johnny?" ' "Are you kidding? I don't like to walk any more than you do. I was thinking of riding out • there. In a nice, shiny limousine." They continued on to the Barbizon-Waldorf Hotel. In the vast, lobby, Johnny found the bell captain's desk. "I say, old man," Johnny said, "I'd like to rent a car for the evening." j "Yes, sir," said the bell cap-, tain. "With or without a driver?" j "Oh, with a driver, I suppose, j This city traffic, you know. • • -" i "Yes, sir, I know. Let's see, j will you want it by the mile or by the hour?" "I think I'd better take it by the hour, then. I want to take a drive out to Long Island and visit awhile." "What is the number of your room, sir?" "Eight twenty - one," replied Johnny truthfully, although he neglected to say that this was the number of his room, at the Forty- Fifth Street Hotel. ' A GUARD stepped out of a small stone house and moved up to the limousine. "I'm calling on Mr. , Carmichael," Johnny said easily. "Is he expecting you, sir?" Johnny shrugged. "More or less, I imagine." "Could I have your name, sir?" "Fletcher, Johnny Fletcher." The guard stepped back into his little house and picked up the phone. A moment later he returned. "Wllkins, the butler, says he doesn't hnve your name. What is it about?" "Does It have lo be about anything?" Johnny asked tartly. "Tell this Wilklns or whatever his nnme is, that I'm a customer of Mr. Cnrmichnel's.
