"THE DRAMA OF MY LIFE''
In Two Parts
1- "THE TALK OF THE WALLS,,
By IVAN NARODNY
Illuilration from Photograph of Ihe Author
' Narodny was four years in solitary confinement four years during
which ho spoke to no one but his keeper, and did not leave his coll' except for
fifteen minutes each day. Ivan Narodny was, and is, a leader of tho revolu
tionary movement In Russia. For his devotion to tho cause of democratic government,
he was not only imprisoned, but came within the shadow of tho gallows. Tho drama of,
his lifo is a human document of surprising Interest. In this first installment, which he
calls "Tho Talk of the Walls", he tells us how ho and his fellow prisoners,, converses
by meanB of a codo of telegraphic taps; he tells of keeping a diary by writing on hand
kerchiofs with his own blood. Ho tells of making friends of a dove, a mouse and a fly.
It Is a true record, far more fascinating than fiction could ever hope to be.
"THE GHOST OF SHAFT 2"
By ARTHUR HAYWOOD
MustratlonM by Rollin Crampton
This is a story 'way off the beaten-track. The Scene is laid in a South
African mining camp. The ghost mystery will puzzle. you up to the las't.par
ograph as fully, as It puzzled tho hero and ho had some lively adventures before he
solved It. Tho illustrations by Rollin Crampton have caught tho spirit of-the Dark Con
tinent. . n. . . .
. ' By' CRITTENDEN MARRIOTT - - , --
llla$tralion by Frederick A. Duncan.
A story of optimism and good cheer. It carries a lesson for every wo
man, and every man, too. A woman who has seen all her- children marry
and mako homes of their own, is tempted to fear that her usefulness is ended. Tho turn
that Mr. Marriott gives to his plot proves that no ono can say -that tho 'world has no work
fjOr him to do. Truly an "Answer" to a condltton that has occurred time and time again
in overy-day life. .
