A BOOK THAT HAS NO STOPPING PLACES!
At Least You Won't Stop Until You Have Read it From Cover to Cover
"THE VULTURE'S CLAW" BY REV. C. F. WIMBERLY, OF MADISONVILLE, KY.
"The Vulture's Clnw" is an absorbingly interesting story, with a deep religious moral. The story takes its name from a miserly, grasping hypocrite whose left hand is deformed into the shape of a claw
and his character is so much like a vulture that the title of the book is peculiarly apt. Mr. Wimberlj introduces more than a dozen interesting characters and a multiplicity of situations which he handles with a
master hand. His descriptive work is nothing short of genius. Most of the action takes place in the remote Ozark mountains and much of it hangs upon the coming into the mountains of a school mar'm who
n fuses new life and ambition into the community; nnd in coming of a Methodist minister with whose beautiful character the reader readily falls in love. "The Vulture's Claw" is a remarkable story of hardship
depicting the unfavorable environments of remote mountain sections; of the influence of one or two strong personalities upon the lives of many people, and through every page runs a double romance which
absorbs the interest of the reader.

WM. JENNINGS BRYAN SAYS:
"Rev. C. F. Wimberly, MndisonVille. Kyv My Dear Mr. Wim
berly: I have read 'The Vulture's Claw;' it is a splendid story.
The book should find a place in Sunday school libraries find
among the books for young people. You have succeeded admir
ably in combining moral lessons with an interesting narrative. I
congratulate you. Yours truly,

AN UPLIFTING FORCE.
A remarkable book; it has that strange infinable charm and power
which held us to the very last page. It shows the battles among
the hard environments, and the victories that may be won. It
will be an uplifting force in every life which only eternity ran
measure. St. Louis Christian Advocate. v
IT .INSPIRES CONFIDENCE.
Before the eyes of the reader, in clearest outline, is the destruc
tive power of the hypocrite, and the constructive power of the
humble pious life. It- inspires confidence to splendid success.
It is clearly seen that Mr. Wimberly is acquainted with rural life
in the South. United Presbyterian.
SHOULD BE READ.
I consider it one of the best books of fiction I have ever read.
It is the kind of fiction that should be read. There is nothing
in it but what is elevating and helpful. The plot is well gotten
up and there is enough comedy and tragedy both in it to interest
any lover of fiction. I thought so much of it that I made a pub
lic announcement of the book in the chapel, and urged every stu
dent to get it and read it.- M. A. Beeson. 1'res. Meridian Male
