PAGE TWO THE MERIDIAN TRTBUNE FLOYD GIBBONS Adventurers' Club "The Dead Patient'9 By FLOYD GIBBONS Famous Headline Hunter. URSES lead an adventurous life. Adventure is always just around the corner for them—on their next case. Mrs. Mar- g"ai et Sweeney tells us today of the most thrilling case she ever had, and it's a pip. When this happened," she writes, "I was looking for ad- ventures and thrills. I was just a prosaic nurse, nearing thirty, faced with the problem of earning a living." Can you imagine a prosaic nurse? I can't. I think their very uni- forms suggest adventure. But let's go along with Mrs. Sweeney on her strange "case." It happened out in California in 1911. Mrs. Sweeney and a nurse friend of hers had just gone there for a chance of climate. They registered at a nurses' registry in Los Angeles and were placed "on call." It rained that night—California papers please copy—but the rains do not stop the mails or nurses and Mrs. Sweeney got her call. A Mrs. Weldon of Pasad...

The same may be true of communities and individuals. How few of us stop to think when we trade unnecessarily away from home, that we are in a small way applying "sanctions" against our own merchants and neighbors! It is a good thing to trade at home when- ever possible. It helps to keep local wealth circulating for local good. Let us keep this in mind and do our proper part as citizens of this community.

J'VE got a story here of one of the most terrible accidents that ever happened to any man. The victim was John E. Perry. And John says of this accident: "It not only thrilled me with the greatest thrill I ever had, but also was my life's greatest mystery, for to this day I can't figure out how I managed to live through it all." But John's adventure sneaked up and bit liim on October 10, 1909, and today, 26 years later, he is still alive to tell about it. I can't solve John's mystery for him, either. The best I can do is to give you the facts and see if you can figure it out. On«that fateful morning in October, John left his home at six o'clock, bound for his job. John worked for electrical con- tractors who were engaged in putting up a power line at the power station. He arrived on the scene of operations at seven-thirty and immediately went...

PAGE FOUR THE MERIDIAN TRIBUNE Friday, December 13, 1935 SYNOPSIS 1 As Alan Garth, prospector, Is pre- paring to leave for his mining claim in the Far North, a plane lands at the airways emergency station. In it are Burton Ramill, millionaire mining magnate; his daughter, Lil- lth; and Vivian Huxby, pilot and mining engineer. Believing him to be only an ignorant prospector, the men offer to make an air trip to Garth's claim, although they refer to his samples of platinum-bearing ore as nearly "worthless." Lilith Ramill, product of the jazz age, plainly shows her contempt for Garth. Through Garth's guidance the plane soon reaches the claim site. Huxby, and Ramill, after making several tests, assure Garth his claim is nearly valueless, but to "encour- age" young prospectors they are willing to take a chance in investing a small amount. Sensing treachery ahead, Garth secretly removes a part from the plane's motor. Huxby and Lilith taunt Garth with his "gulli- bility," but their tone ch...

Each year we gladly wel- come its approach with joyous anticipation, and then when we witness the miracle of a world transformed from a realm of al- most pure individualism into a quite different realm where self- interests and personal differences fade into the background for a season, we watch the Yuletide peri- od pass with a feeling of regret that it cannot continue through the year and from year to year. If this spirit of Christmas can transform our hard, cold world, temporarily, why can't the miracle last? THE CHRISTMAS SEASON af- fords an opportunity for a demon- stration of what keener regard for the brotherhood of man will do, not only for man's spiritual side, but also for the material phases ...

You know, when you have faced death a dozen times in a few minutes and still manage to come out alive, that's luck enough for any one guy. But Rudy wasn't satisfied with that. He came out of that hair-raiser of his with his arms full of goldfish, and even then, Lady Luck didn't stop throwing daisies at him. After the goldfish stopped dropping into his lap, he had one more "break" that was worth all the rest put together. But I don't want to get ahead of my story. Let's go back to the beginning.
