The story is laid in Peru, where Colonel Campion, his son, and Cyril Norton go through innumerable adventures among the wildest parts of the valleys of the Andes, the object of their travels there being the obtaining of seeds of the cinchona, in order to increase the world's supply of quinine. The many hair-breadth escapes of the adventurers are told with all Mr. Fenn's accustomed spirit. 'Real Gold' is an admirable story which the boys will not be slow to appreciate.

    Wynifred Mallory was delighted to learn that the Go-Ahead Club would be allowed to camp at Lake Honotonka. Soon they set off, with their boy friends to keep them company in another camp not far away. Those boys played numerous tricks on the girls, and the girls retaliated, you may be sure. And then Wyn did a strange girl a favor, and learned how some ancient statues of rare value had been lost in the lake, and how the girl's father was accused of stealing them.

  • The Boy With the U. S. Fisheries

    The book does not lack thrilling scenes. The far Aleutian Islands have witnessed more desperate sea-fighting than has occurred elsewhere since the days of the Spanish Buccaneers, and pirate craft, which the U. S. Fisheries must watch, rifle in hand, are prowling in the Behring Sea to-day. The fish-farms of the United States are as interesting as they are immense in their scope.
