enough love tale If the duke business
were left out.
In splto of their religious tone the

entitles "Men, Not Angels" (P. J. Ken

The themes nre grown up even If the

A short story, "The Indiscreet Let

(The Century Company), relates the
conversation on a train between a
glorified travelling salesman and a
young woman with n high forehead.
The salesman gives n good account of
himself in the vernacular, which
makes the story entertnlnlng: what
connection this has with 'he
woman's venturesome trusting

Twas a pretty cottage by day, but by night! -0-oo-oo-oh
I it teas haunted I No place to keep
boarders I But that's just what Thankful Barnes tries
By JOSEPH C. LINCOLN
Author of "Kent Knowles, Quahaug," "Cap'n Dan's Daughter," etc
A roaring comedy-novel of Cape Cod life. Thankful
inherits a cottage and turns it into a boarding house.
But, "thunder-mighty!" some one discovers the house
is "ha'nted" and then things begin to happen and keep
right on happening until the house is short of boarders
and the reader is short of breath. If you want to
laugh, read "Thankful's Inheritance." You never read
a funnier book. Don't mi;s it. Get your copy today!
