MON BOUNDED, THE ELEVATOR BOY;
OR,
FROM THE BOTTOM TO THE TOP.

CHAPTER I.
IN THE TOILS.
In a huge granite building twenty stories
high on Wall street. New York city, for
fourteen hours a day Ed Mortimer, better
known among his friends as Iron Bound
Ed, occupied the humble but useful posi
tion of elevator boy. From early dawn
till late at night a steady hand clutched
the rope, a keen eye glanced through the
grating, and a clear voice called out,
"Ground floor, all out!"
Snch was our hero.
The average person who viewed his sym
metrical figure and handsome counte
nance and remarked the well knit frame
would hardly suppose that but seventeen
summers had passed over our hero's head.
Yet such was the case. Upon this day
upon which we introduce our hero a thick
set man, disguised as a gentleman, entered
the elevator, aud in a surly tone said,
"Fifteenth floor, rooms of Blanchard, the
banker."
One glance at the man and our hero had
recognised him. It was his old enemy, f
Billy the Bilk!
"What can he want?" muttered Iron
Bound Ed Sorely it was nothing connected
with Mr. Blanchard's beautiful daughter
Irene, whose life he had saved last sum
mer at Coney Island.
Beaching the fifteenth floor the villian
Stepped out.
"Beware! Billy the Bilk," muttered our
hero; "Iron Bound Ed is on your trail."
He then hurriedly placed the sign "Out
of Order" on the elevator door, and in a
few moments was crouched at the key
hole of Mr. Blanchard's office.
"Spare me," he could hear the pleading
voice of the banker say. "Remember, this
would ruin me."
"I know that," was the villian's cool re
ply; "so come to my terms, old man, or I
will give your dreadful secret to the
world."
"I will accede to your demands as re
gards the million dollars. But spare me
child. Remember she is so young to be a
child. Heavens, man, she is not yet forty."
"She will be older than that some day,"
was the sneering reply. "Why should I
spare one part of my revenge when I can
have both?''
■ "Never, villian! never!" cried the old
man.
"Very well, then," was the reply of Billy
the Bilk; "the whole world shall know
that the great Blanchard is a victim of the
cigarette habit. Then of what avail will
be all your wealth?"
j "Heavens, man, have you know pity?"
"Quick, then; give me the money. The
girl shall marry me tonight."
Then our hero saw the trembling banker
count over the million in money and hand
it to the villian.
Our hero smiled grimly. When Billy the
Bilk came out a few moments afterward
he never noticed the firm, determined look
of the elevator boy. "Bottom floor!" he
hissed.
But between the tenth and eleventh floors
our hero calmly stopped the machine and
laced the pugilist. "Billy the Bilk," he
said quietly, "I'll just trouble you for that
money." And he sprang upon him. The
villian struggled, but he was no match for
Iron Bound Ed, and soon the million of
silver dollars was in the pocket of our hero.
Just at this instant there was a tearing
sound. The weight of the money had
broken the elevator rope!
Billy the Bilk -nowled for mercy. Bnt
our hero folded his arms and not a muscle
moved.
He had faced death too often crossing
Park row at noon to fear such a little
thing as a four ton elevator falling through
eleven stories and a sub-cellar.
There was a crash, and the continuation
of this story will be found in the next
issue of the Messenger Boy's Companion.

York Evening Sun.
An Old Story Retold.
Just before him she sat
With a monstrous great hat
On her head, quite obscuring the stage.
He twisted and turned
Till with anger he burned.
And each moment augmented his rage.
In despair, then, at last-
Half the evening had passed—
Leaning forward, he whispered quite low:
"Won't you take off your hat?
I can't see what they're at
On the Btage." But she shook her head, "No!"
Then ho had a bright thought-
Some by instinct are taught—
And he put his own hat on his head.
In an instant behind
Him came murmurs unkind—
"Shoot the hat!" "Take that hat off!" they said.
Their expressions were blunt.
And the lady in front
( ).
For she thought that, of course, they meant her.
With a rosy red face,
And exceeding bad grace,
Lofted her hat without further demur.
MORAL.
The moral is plain:
Your point you may gain
Sometimes in a roundabout way.
And this moral, too.
Comes clearly to view:
Never wear a big hat to the play.

ONE HUNDRED DOLLARS PER ACRE!
Is still the price of Alessandro land. We found time on the day of
the sale to sell 80 acres for $8,000. Some of the very best lots of
the entire tract are still unsold. He who neglects the present op
portunity of buying the Best Orange and Fruit Land in Southern
California, with the Best Water Right in the World, at $100 per
acre, makes a mistake of a lifetime. Comment unnecessaiy.

FAMOUS SANITARIUM!
713 S. Main St., Los Angeles, Cal.
All kinds of Chinese herbs and medicines for sale. The best accommodations for those
desiring to remain at the Sanitarium for treatment. Everything under the personal supervision of
Dr. Woug. Consultations absolutely free. The followiugare a few of the testimonials of patients
cured by him:
For seven months I was treuted by five different doctors, none of whom stated what my dis
ease was. During that time I suffered terribly and continued to fail until I became a
skeleton. For the last threemonths I had to be dressed, fed and have my water drawn; finally
my feet, limbs, hunds and face became swollen. 1 could not rise from a chair and could
scarcely walk, and was obliged to have my water drawn from iifteen to twenty times a day.
My friends considered I would not last many days. I then—tnree months ago—commenced
treating with Dr. Wong. The first dose of medicine completely relieved me, and since, I
have not been obliged to resort to artificial means for relieving my bladder. In 5 days I was
able to dress and feed myself, in 10 days the swelling laid left me and I could walk as well as
for years before. 1 now weigh as much us I ever did and feel better than I have felt for 15
years lam 75 years old and feel tip top. Dr. Wong says I was afflicted with one of the 14
kinds of kidney diseases. W. W. CHENEY, Kivera, Cal., August 29,1890.
Our little son was taken very sick about two months since, had a high fever and finally a
white swelling developed on his neck. Dr. Wong cured him in two weeks' time and completely
removed the swelling without cutting nr causing the child any pain.
MR. AND MRS. G. P. \V. JENSEN, Alvaradostreet,
November 4th, 1890. ( Los Angeles, Cal.
For nearly one year I was treated by the most noted physicians of New York City to whom
I paid ?25 per day for medical advice. They failed to prevent me from running down. Finally
these physicians told my friends that my cuse was Incurable, aud that I could not possibly live
oue year as I was in the last stages of consumption. Dr. Wong cured me In four months'time,
and I am as well as any man in the world, and have worked hard for two years' time.

Two years ago Dr. Wong cured me of a spleen, liver and stomach trouble in a few weeks.
I have been perfectly healthy ever since. .„„„„,. „ „ . _
