Midnight (01:11) October 28, 1922

Bernarr Macfadden, publisher

"Ever since early childhood I have been a sleepwalker. My parents thought I would outgrow this peculiar tendency, but so far, and I'm twenty-eight now, I haven't. My home is in the suburbs and I am often discovered, at the dead of night, wandering about the streets clad only in my pajamas. The officer on our beat keeps a weather eye out for me. More than once he has caught me wandering around in my pajamas, and on waking me, we have proceeded toward our residence and stood at the front door chatting until the desire for sleep again overcame me."
This is the eleventh weekly issue of Midnight magazine, from October 28, 1922. This issue features an editorial by pioneer fitness guru Bernarr Macfadden titled “When Winter Comes.” In addition to short fiction, articles include one calling for the abolition of capital punishment and another about the adventures of a lifelong sleepwalker.
