Midnight (01:06) September 23, 1922

Bernarr Macfadden, publisher

"Josephus Marble lived in an upper apartment facing Riverside Drive not far from Grant's Tomb, so that a part of his view took in a considerable stretch of grassy lawn. The young man he was watching had approached a slope of grass in a manner to indicate a desire not to be seen; and as at that early hour the place was deserted, he seemed satisfied for he suddenly stooped, cut into the grass swiftly, lifted a slab of the turf, placed something under it, pressed it back into its original position, stood up, glanced quickly about and walked away."
This is the sixth weekly issue of Midnight magazine, from September 23, 1922. In this issue editor and early health and fitness guru Bernarr Macfadden writes the editorial “Burning the Candle at Both Ends.” Among the fiction entries is the story “Sold to the Devil,” and articles include spirit pictures at a midnight seance and an essay on dogs versus children among New York City dwellers. [May contain mature or controversial content.]
