In Our Next Issue
THE DIAMOND LENS, by Fitz-James O'Brien. This is one of the world's classics. A story written years ago, but which retains its flavor to the fullest extent and brings in an exquisite microscopic being, the enchanting heroine of the story.
THE PURCHASE OF THE NORTH POLE, by Jules Verne. Here we give our readers the second and concluding installment of this entrancing story. The author's ingenuity in evolving a cause for the remarkable fault in mathematics is only revealed in the last lines.
A COLUMBUS OF SPACE, by Garrett P. Serviss. The story draws to an end. Attack, adventure, captivity are all successfully coped with. And then comes a tragic termination and the reader does not know by what possible means the denouement can be brought about. As always with this author, the science of the story is absolutely correct in all details.
THE ISLAND OF DR. MOREAU, by H. G. Wells. One of the most astounding stories ever written by the well-known author. We have never read a story that held our interest at such a feverish pitch of excitement as does this classic; we will not give away the contents to spoil it all for you. You may take our word for it that you never read anything as weird and amazing as "The Island of Dr. Moreau."
BLASPHEMERS' PLATEAU, by Alexander Snyder, wherein some eminent scientists successfully experiment with infinite secrets, until they become drunk with their power. Then another scientist arrives on a friendly visit. It is a powerful and gripping story which is sure to hold your interest. This story was crowded out of the September issue.
