Synopsis
This historic book may have numerous typos and missing text. Purchasers can download a free scanned copy of the original book (without typos) from the publisher. Not indexed. Not illustrated. 1907.

"If news is scarce, they'll play it up big," prophesied the sergeant. "Maybe they'll run my picture," ventured Mac hopefully. "You're a lucky dog, Mac," said the sergeant. "And they'll have to stop throwing it in your face that nothing ever happens at the Sixty-sixth Street Station," added Mac diplomatically.
