He was discouraged, and at tlie same time he was desperate, thought of hiring u gang of thugs to kidnap Betty, just so lie could rescue He His brnin framed up other wild schemes, all of which he abandoned. He terminated his fren zled conjecturing by arriving at the (determination to get a job and go to ! work and prove himself worthy. He i had In mind no particular job ; the first one tlint huppened nlong would satisfy. Down into the city went Jerry. Leaving his cur In n garage, he started | out Job hunting, wandering rather aimlessly. He huppened by a police j station at a time when a file of blue Is In of î coats was coming out, and It made him stop and think. "That's a good chance," lie told him self. "Why not he n policeman? Per haps It would make me more com manding. It's worth a trial, anyway." Into the police station he went, found the captain In charge and usked for a job. The captain smiled rnther perplex * edly at the good-looking, well-dressed, rather large youth. "A job, eh? Weil, we need men. Can you manage a motorcycle?" i Jerry nodded vigorously. A tnotor ! cycle was one of the few tilings he ever had been able to manage. "Well, we'll give you n trial."
