The Wire Tappers: Illustrated by Arthur Stringer. This ingenious story has to do with the nefarious industry of eavesdropping by telegraph. Two clever people, a man and a woman, in hard luck, engage in this and other criminal practices, having always before them the hope of gaining a footing in the decent world, represented in the man's mind by successful improvements in electrical apparatus. The author, Arthur Stringer, has chosen a new field for a romance compounded of qualities found in detective stories. It is rumored that pool-room wire-tappers made more than fifty thousand dollars on the day this story went to press!show more
