'But,' says father--right here in this very room I heard him say it one night--'it's that one hundred and fifty shares that worry me. If the Eagle crowd ever COULD buy up those shares they would control, after all, and freeze us out. Freezin' is their business, anyhow,' he said, and laughed that big laugh of his. Seems as if I could hear him laugh now. Ah, hum! . . . But there, let's get under way again or you'll go to sleep before the ship makes port.
