A WONDERFUL STORY Tom Swift, who had been slowly looking through the pages of a magazine, in the contents of which he seemed to be deeply interested, turned the final folio, ruffled the sheets back again to look at a certain map and drawing.
Then, slapping the book down on a table before him, with a noise not unlike that of a shot,exclaimed: Well, that is certainly one wonderful story! What’s it about, Tom? asked his chum, Ned Newton.
Something about inside baseball, or a new submarine that can be converted into an airship on short notice? Neither one, you–you unscientific heathen, answered Tom, with a laugh at Ned. Though that isn’t saying such a machine couldn’t be invented.
I believe you–that is if you got on its trail.
