The Silver Hord
This is enough to insure Henald readers that the new serial in
The Herald is going to be one of the best they have ever had. Rex
Beach is a writer whose imaginative and descriptive powers are
uneqiraled. ''The Spoilers," his great story of Alaska, which The
Herald printed a few months ago. was one of the strongest that
newspaper readers had ever been treated to.
His "Silver Horde," another Alaskan story, treats of the salmon
fishing business and is as full of sensational" and startling climaxes
as any of his other works, besides containing a strong vein of com
edy. Rex Beach writes of real men, hardy, strong, inanlv men, and
he never treated his subject better than in ''Te Silver Horde."
