The contract for the two million bushel grain elevator, Calumet K, had been let to MacBride& Company, of Minneapolis, in January, but the superstructure was not begun until late in May, and at the end of October it was still far from completion. Ill luck had attended Peterson, the constructor, especially since August. MacBride, the head of the firm, disliked unlucky men, and at the end of three months his patience gave out, and he telegraphed Charlie Bannon to leave the job he was completing at Duluth and report at once at the home office.

A story which points every young man in business life to one of the greatest highways to success. Surprisingly fascinating and suspenseful novel about a dynamic construction boss building a grain elevator on the Calumet River, south of Chicago. He races against a stringent deadline while confronting interference from a jealous, ignorant foreman; venal union leaders; recalcitrant railroads; and the sabotaging efforts of bullish speculators bent on cornering the wheat market. It makes a fine counterpart to Frank Norris' "The Pit.­" Said to be Ayn Rand's favorite novel.

pubOne.­info thank you for your continued support and wish to present you this new edition. Captain Daniel Menard leaned against the parapet at the outer edge of the citadel balcony. The sun was high, the air clear and still. Beneath him, at the foot of the cliff, nestled the Lower Town, a strip of shops and houses, hemmed in by the palisades and the lower battery. The St. Lawrence flowed by, hardly stirred by the light breeze. Out in the channel, beyond the merchantmen, lay three ships of war, Le Fourgon, Le Profond, and La Perle, each with a cluster of supply boats at her side; and the stir and rattle of tackle and chain coming faintly over the water from Le Fourgon told that she would sail for France on the morrow, if God should choose to send the wind.
