Midnight (01:05) September 16, 1922

Bernarr Macfadden, publisher

"To the last tick of eternity the memory of that ghastly revelation will be as clear to him as the greenish shine of the revealing moon. Every detail will be remembered until the end of remembrance. The darkened library with the pool of moonlight drenching the still form, the hoarse breathing of astonished men, the gasping, incoherent utterances of stricken women, the upturned, stark dead face with the blood clot on the beard, the fretting of the desk clock, the far away slam of a door all was etched into the very substance of his soul, never to be erased."
This is the fifth weekly issue of Midnight magazine, from September 16, 1922. Published by the early health and fitness guru Bernarr Macfadden, better known as the founder of Physical Culture magazine, Macfadden’s editorial in this issue admonishes readers to protect their health or face a short and sickly life. Other articles detail a real-life encounter with Andrew Carnegie and an installment of the murder mystery, “Charged With His Own Murder.” [May contain mature or controversial content.]
