TEDDY

A captivating story of how Teddy, a village boy, helped to raise the mortgage on his mother’s home, and the means he took for doing so.  The obstacles his crabbed uncle placed in his way; his connection with the fakirs at the County Fair; his successful Cane and Knife Board venture; his queer lot of friends and now they aided him; and how he finally outwitted his enemies.

TELEGRAPH TOM’S VENTURE

By JAMES OTIS

A highly entertaining story of the adventures of a boy who assisted a United States officer of the law in working up a famous case.  The narrative is both interesting and instructive in that it shows what a bright boy can accomplish when thrown upon his own resources, and also portrays the manner in which such officers do their work.
