THE CAPTAIN OF THE SUSAN DREW
By Jack London
Illustrations by John O. Todahl
JACK-LONDON, the greatest American
writer of short stories, heads the list of con
tributors to this issue of The Semi-Monthly
Magazine Section. He presents "The Cap
tain of the Susan Drew," his latest and best
tale of adventure on the high seas. It is a
tale of an ocean liner wrecked in the Pacific.
The handful of survivors, drifting in an open
boat, are rescued by a tramp sailing, vessel.
The captain of the vessel is as brutaYlmd
grotesque a mariner as ever bullied his crew,
and is as mysterious a character as Dr. Jekyll
and Mr. Hyde. You will be no less astounded
at what happens to him than were the casta
ways whom he torments. There are three
vigorous illustrations by Todahl.

THE DRAMA OF MY LIFE
Mukden: "The Bloody Sunday": Kron
stadt By Ivan Narodny
Illustrations by Wilson Karcher
The life of Ivan Narodny, revolutionary
leader and author-adventurer,' has been far
more eventful than fiction could ever hope
to be. Under the title "The Drama of My
Life" Narodny recounts his personal expe
riences on three historic occasions the four
days battle of Mukden in the Russo-Japanese
war, the notorious "Bloody Sunday"
massacre in St. Petersburg, and the capture
of the Fortress of Kronstadt by a band of
daring revolutionists led by himself. Wilson
Karcher has caught the spirit of the article
and illustrates it with all the intensity the
HYSTERIA IN CHILDHOOD
By H. Addington .Bruce.
An article that will interest every parent.
The author shows that the hysteria of chil-.
dren is a mental disease that can be pre
vented or cured, if older people will only
recognize its real character. Mr. Bruce re
counts several anecdotes from real life in
support of his theories.
