Thrills from the experiences of great detectives

[Elkhart, Indiana-?]: [Dr. Miles Medicines], n.d.. 29p., staplebound booklet, pages toned, small crinkle to right edge, otherwise very good. Breathless crime-fighting stories interspersed with ads for various medical products, the most famous of which today is Alka-Seltzer. The rear cover has the rubberstamp of a distributor, the Central Drug Store in Kendallville, Indiana. The first story in the booklet is about opium dens in Boston's Chinatown, and the detective work of a Chinese-American informant and a white woman posing as his partner to expose the "Mayor of Chinatown," a tong leader who owned a jewel-encrusted opium pipe. The story is based on an actual investigation by Dr. Erwin C. Ruth in 1922.
