John Rawn is a novel you cannot sidestep
if it once gets in your way. — Boston Globe I
Bp Emerson Hough
Author of The Mississippi Bubble, 54-40 or Fight, etc.
Hon. Richard A. Ballinger, former Secretary of the In
" 'John Rawn' Is a strong presentation of the man who
takes himself seriously and succeeds in making the world acc*ept
him seriously—the glutton of the rights of others."
Hon. John Burke, Governor of North Dakota, says:
" 'John Rawn' is an intensely interesting and timely story
of present-day conditions in the industrial world —a story of
the merciless selfishness and egotism of men, sacrificing honor,
home and family to the demands of greed, and the unselfish,
unfaltering devotion of woman."
Hon. George E. Chamberlain, U. S. Senator from Oregon,
"I have read 'John Rawn' with intense interest. There
are many 'John Hairna' in our country today—men who are
absolutely without heart, and who take advantage of every op
portunity for their own enrichment. The book is a strong ono,
and I hope its publication will s«rve a useful purpose.

"All right, if you say so," ac
quiesced the other. "But do you
mind telling me how you figure
out a man traveling under an
alias and helping himself to oth

basis than he's a thief?"
"A, B. C," replied Average
Jones; "as thus: A—Thieves

The hunts retracted sharply, as

"In a large city and a strange

you'd bo obliged to register un

which enabled me to find you."
"I'd like to know how you did

From the left-hand drawer of

the hook at all. Now gee."
Ho caught the new ing in both
hands and tautened It sharply. It
began to part.
"Awkward," he said, "yet it's
the only way it oould have been

He wedged the post firmly In

hands?" he asked.
"Probably, If I could get a hold.
But there Isn't surface enough
for a good hold."
"No, there Isn't. But now."
Jones coiled a rope around the
post and handed the end to Kirby.
He pulled sharply. The knob
snapped and rolled on the floor.
"Q. E. D.," said Kirby. "But
It doesn't mean anything to me."
"Doesn't it? Let me recall
some other evidence. The guest
who saw Mr. Greene in the hall
way thought he was carrying
something in both hands. The
milk driver who hailed him on the
balcony noticed thai' he gestured
awkwardly with both hands. In
what circumstances would a man
use both hands for action normal

Kirby, looking dubiously at
