Midnight (01:07) September 30, 1922

Bernarr Macfadden, publisher

"A grave had been dug for old Montgomery Stockbridge, while he was alive, vigorous, without any immediate intention of dying. It was a high-handed outrage, and a sinister threat, and it terrified the millionaire. Who had done it, or why, was beyond him. The first intimation he had of the affair came through a special delivery letter, addressed to him, and received while he was in conference with James Bennett, his lawyer. The letter calmly informed him that his grave had been dug in Ridgewood Cemetery and was ready for his reception."
This is the seventh weekly issue of Midnight magazine, from September 30, 1922. This issue’s editorial by the pioneer health and fitness guru Bernarr Macfadden concerns rebuilding health through exercise and good eating. Another article discusses the death penalty. Among several fiction pieces are “Murdered by Telephone” and “Thieves.” [May contain mature or controversial content.]
