ILLUSTRATED -   Disinherited by his scheming stepfather, young Frank Courtney travels to New York City to seek his fortune. Aka: Making His Way, Frank Courtney's Struggle Upward.  Frank Courtney lives with his mother, and his stepfather, Mr. Manning. When his mother dies, Frank feels her loss deeply. He shocked to learn that his mother has bequeathed her considerable estate to her husband. Unbeknownst to Tom, Mr. Manning has hidden his mother’s authentic will, and forged another.  Mr. Manning begins to treat Frank poorly, so he travels to New York City. One day, a stranger asks him to sell government bonds. When Frank attempts to do so, the bonds are found to have been stolen. The stranger, when caught and charged, turns state's evidence, and the bonds are recovered. Frank is then hired by Mr. Henry Percival, the owner of the government bonds. He is so pleased with Frank's work that he sends him to Minnesota to investigate his business holding. Mr. Percival suspects that his agent has been cheating him. Frank apprehends the guilty agent and successfully remedies the situation.  Now he must wait and hope for Manning’s scam to be uncovered, so that he can come into his rightful estate.
