The Rover Boys in Business

Description: 

The Rover Boys in Business is written by Edward Stratemeyer. It is queer, Sam, and I must say I don't like it. I think this is a case where no news is bad news. I think if everything was going along all right in New York, Dick would surely let us know. I am afraid he is having a good deal of trouble in straightening out Dad's business.

The Rival Campers Ashore

Description: 

The Rival Campers Ashore is written by Ruel Perley Smith. The morning train from Benton, rumbling and puffing along its way through outlying farmland, and sending its billows of smoke like sea rollers across the pastures, drew up, ten miles from the city, at a little station that overlooked a pond, lying clear and sparkling at the base of some low, wooded hills.

The Ripening Rubies

Description: 

The Ripening Rubies is written by Max Pemberton. These things and many more came to my mind as I held the mutilated belt in my hand and examined the fracture, while my hostess stood, with an angry flush upon her face, waiting for my verdict. A moment's inspection of the bauble revealed to me at once its exceeding value, and the means whereby a pendant of it had been snatched.

The Red Thumb Mark

Description: 

The Red Thumb Mark is written by R. Austin Freeman. Everything was now ready for taking the photograph. The light from the window having been concentrated on the thumb-print by means of a condenser, Thorndyke proceeded to focus the image on the ground-glass screen with extreme care and then, slipping a small leather cap over the objective, introduced the dark slide and drew out the shutter.

The Red Hand

Description: 

The Red Hand is written by Arthur Machen. Dyson merely grunted and lit his pipe and the two sat smoking in rich silence, watching through the open window the children in the square as they flitted to and fro in the twilight of the lamps; as elusive as bats flying on the verge of a dark wood.

The Rayner-Slade Amalgamation

Description: 

The Rayner-Slade Amalgamation is written by J.S. Fletcher. The housekeeper said I was to give you that as soon as you got in, sir, he announced. "There's a telegram in it that came at four o'clock this afternoon--she couldn't send it on, because she didn't know exactly where it would find you in Manchester."

The Ralston Bank Burglary

Description: 

The Ralston Bank Burglary is written by Jacques Futrelle. It was care in such trivial details, perhaps, that had a great deal to do with the fact that the Ralston National had advanced from a small beginning to the first rank of those banks which were financial powers. President Quinton Fraser had inaugurated the system under which the Ralston National had so prospered, and now, despite his seventy-four years.

The Quest of the Sacred Slipper

Description: 

The Quest of the Sacred Slipper is written by Sax Rohmer. What a heterogeneous rabble it was! - a brightly coloured rabble, but the colours all were dirty, like the town and the canal. Only the sky was clean; the sky and the hard, merciless sunlight which spared nothing of the uncleanness, and defied one even to think of the term dear to tourists, "picturesque."
