Unfortunately, the average detective story is pretty slim stufl.

It is necessary that we do every- Ihing possible to have as much feed for our livestock as we possibly can. Many formers are already reeding the corn from the burned sand blow spots in the ft?ld by culling and hauling to the lot. If we can gel a season we can still plant on good lands as late as August 5 to 10, German millet, and we should seed around three pecks pe r acre only on good land, because it is a very quick growing crop.

This book—a Doubleday-Doran Crime Club publication, selling for one dollar—brings in Colonel Anthony Gethryn, who is becoming one of my favorile fictional detectives. The corpus de- licti, in this case, is casually tossed in through the doorway ol an English public house of a summer evening, and the whole crime seems to be an open and shut case except for the presence of a few grains of silver sand on Ihe vic- lim's coal. This is enough for the redoubtable Colonel Qelhryn, and i he puts his nose to the ground and jlike job. Better put it on your I can't tell you.very much abou' il.

The murder, in this case, is disguised as suicide, and it wouldn't be a bad tale if the various characters didn't have ! way of getting all mixed up and sort of running together.
