Hardy says the cook attacked him with
a knife hidden in one sleeve of his volum

Ida. Johnson, another employe of the
Lindley family, corroborates the cook's
story. No weapons were found in the

Hardy had words last night because the
coachman said the milk which he had

Miss Johnson saw the shooting and de

Hardy said: "Last night the cook drove
me out of the kitchen with a knife and
I sot the pistol, fearing more trouble.
This morning I went downtown for my
breakfast and returned in time to see the
Chinaman fooling around the horses'

BERKELEY, Sept 20.— Disgusted with
the professed inability of the town au
thorities to provide adequate police pro
tection for West Berkeley, the citizens'
vigilance committee has decided to per
fect a permanent organization for the
purpose of dealing- immediately and ef
fectively with any future outbreaks of
crime which may occur in that portion
of the city. The committee decided fin
ally to effect such an organization after
the members of the town Board of Trus
tees had openly stated that the finances
of the city rendered the employment of
a larger police force Impossible.
The committee then decided to take the
responsibility of maintaining peace in
West Berkeley out of the hands of the
police and into their own keeping. Twenty
four men have entered into the organiza
tion, thus binding themselves to be ready
at any time to patrol the streets and to
afford all the protection in their power
to the citizens of the town.
The citizens' patrol was maintained last
night," but nothing of moment occurred.
The citizens of the town are beginning to
think that the carnival of crime is over
and many are not -slow to attribute its
end to. the prompt action of the citizens'
committee. This is in spite of the fact
that the police authorities have thus far
refused to recognize or aid the committee
in any way, practically maintaining that
such a committee did not exist.

The Sunday Call's new literary policy of publishing a complete
novel in two, or at the most, three, issues of a newspaper, has worked
a revolution in the matter of giving the public the best literature
at a minimum, price; moreover it does away with that exasperating
delay so tantalizing to the reader of serial fiction where the story
is dragged along from week to week and month to month.
The first book published was "None But the Brave"; then"
came "Lazarre" — both extremely popular books — and now comes
"The Mystery Box," a strikingly dramatic novel, which is just be-
gun in to-day's magazine section, and will hold your attention
from start to finish. /
This remarkable departure in Western journalism has met
with truly wonderful success. The first two novels created a great
furore not only because they were given complete in two or three
editions, but because they were illustrated in a manner equally
"The Mystery Box" is sure to find even greater favor, but this
is only the beginning of The Sunday Call's big fiction list that will
be offered to its readers for one-tenth of what these latest and up-
to-date novels cost in book form.
If you have been following the published reports of the best lit-
erary works of the past year, which have been attracting the
greatest attention you have doubtless noticed that "The Gentle-
man From Indiana," "Alice of Old Vincennes," "The Autocrats,"
"The Leopard's Spots" and "When Knighthood Was in Flower"
have gained tremendous vogue, and you need read no further than
the bare announcement that the exclusive rights for the Pacific
Coast have been secured by The Sunday Call, and the novels in
turn will be given early publication. That announcement is in it-
self a promise of a literary feast for a ridiculously low price.
But if you haven't noticed the book world's tabulated list, a
few words about each book will speak volumes, for the names of the
authors alone are the best guarantee of the excellence of the whole
First there is "The Gentleman From Indiana," though
this does not mean that the novels will be published precisely in
the order named. It is by Booth Tarkingtoo, the famous author of
"Monsieur Beaucaire," and it is one of the prettiest love stories ever ¦
written. It is a story that will hold your interest from start to fin-
ish because it has been written- around the wildly exciting, the
strangely dramatic, but little understood White Caps of Indiana, a
field practically new to literature, because it has never been truth-
fully represented before.
Then there is "Alice of Old Vincennes," by Maurice Thomp-
son, the last and greatest novel of this truly fascinating author.
It is a powerful story of love and war; one of the most spontane-
ous and artistic American romances ever written. It is considered
more original than "Bichard Carvel," more vital than "Janice
Meredith," more cohesive than "To Have and to Hold" and more
dramatic than "Audrey." 4
Next follows "The Autocrats," by C. X. Lush, a popular tale of
to-day; a political novel unrivaled in human interest and tense
situations; a story of men and women who make the social and
business world of the period.
After this there is "The Leopard's Spots," by Thomas Dixon
Jr., the most discussed problem novel of the year; a book on the
race problem that has been the reigning sensation of the season; a
powerful tale of Southerners and the South. r % : >
Next follows "When Knighthood Was in Tlower," by Charles
Majors, which more than any other book of the period has been de-
claimed as the model of all modern romantic fiction.
And now read this next line closely, for it needs no more than
that one simple sentence to tell about the most striking literary
sensation of the day — not last* week or last month or last year, but
NOW. It has. created more controversy in both religious and lay
-circles in the East and on the continent than any book ever, writ-
ten. It will be published complete in ONE EDITION of The Sun-
day CalL The Book is-
