C June L'l?.?One of th* most delightful , v. nts of the SOc'nl season was the final meeting of the Auction Bridge club for the season, which took place Tuesday morning, it was a porch party, at the residence of Mrs. W. M. Yerby. In honor of Mrs. You. will not have to search between the lines "for the kernel of the story in "Crooks and Their Ways," the first install? ment of which will be printed in the Sun? day issue of The Times- Dispatch for July 7. It is all shown as plainly as if uncovered by the rays of a dark lantern. Edward Dun lap, the old theif who wrote these wonder? ful memoirs of an eventful life of crime, withheld nothing when he went to tell his story. Being a man of frankness, he told it in plain language. Being a man of intellect and education, he has 1 clothed the story with a literary charm that makes it unusual in the line of memoirs. Those who enjoyed "Raffles" and the others of his kind will find something even more enjoyable about "Spht-the-Wind," as Dunlap was known in police and criminal history. The writer of this plain story of crime loses nothing when compared with any story tellers of the day. The accuracy of his first-hand statements can? not be confused with the imaginary happen? ings invented by the story teller. Every line and chapter of "Crooks and Their Ways" is worth reading. The'first installment is quite as readable as any that will follow. It will give a key to the remainder of the record. Every reader should begin with the first installment, if possible.
