Adrift within the Unknown - or, Queer Adventures in a Queer Realm via William Wallace Cook

There can be not more becoming advent to this such a lot remarkable narrative from the pen of James Peter Munn than that article within the Morning Mercury.

Munn, it truly is no breach of self assurance to notify the reader, was once a reformed burglar; even if the writer of 2 books which completed huge revenues and have been such a lot favorably obtained via the reviewers—"Forty methods of Cracking Safes" and "The Sandbagger's Manual"—Mr. Munn built small ability with the pen, in order that the breathless curiosity aroused via his revelations hangs extra upon the problem than the fashion. The Mercury article should still do its mite towards getting ready the reader for what's to come.

In the 1st position, the tale used to be what newspaper males name a "scoop."

The article within the first version ran as follows:

QUINN'S fort VANISHES.

AND SO DOES QUINN! WITH residence AND property. THE HARLEM SAGE DISAPPEARS in one HOUR. LEAVING now not A hint BEHIND.

What occurred to Professor Quinn final evening? And what occurred to the unusual metal constitution identified in the neighborhood between Harlem citizens as Quinn's Castle?

For Quinn and his fort have been snuffed out like a candle-gleam your time among the hours of 11 o'clock and hour of darkness. Patrolman Casey, who travels a beat in that a part of Harlem, avers that he handed the citadel at 11 o'clock, and that it was once there; he handed its web site back at twelve, and it was once now not there.
