The
Master
of
Mysteries
THIS book wns written by a well-known author who,
for reasons of his own, has preferred to remsln anony
mous. For the benefit of his frisnds, however, hs has
incorporated In the book two cipher messages one reveal
ing his nsme, snd the other his motive for withholding its
ppoarar.ee from the tills page, The cipher, to one who
follows ths methods of Astro the Seer, Is not difficult and
will reveal ths most surprising mystery in ths volume
Astro the Sser, is indeed the msster of mystsries, Hs
is a detective, but not one in conventional dress. His per
sonality is picturesque. He has an olive ckin and wears a
robs and a turban. The knottiest problems grow simple In
his hsnds. He clslms a strange psychic power but the
reader sees him smile behind his client's bsck. The reader
hss the rsra privilege of being taken into the medium's
confidence, and who doesn't want "to be on the Inside"?
