Each number complete in handsome colored cover. A new one issued every Friday. Do not fail to read them. These intensely interesting stories describe the adventures of Frank Manley, a plucky young athlete, who tries to excel in all kinds of games and pastimes. Each number contains a story of manly sports, replete with lively incidents, dramatic situations and a sparkle of humor. Every popular game will be featured in the succeeding stories, such as baseball, skating, wrestling, etc. Not only are these stories the very best, but they teach you how to become strong and healthy. You can learn to become a trained athlete by reading the valuable information on physical culture they contain. From time to time the wonderful Japanese methods of self-protection called Jiu-Jitsu will be explained. A page is devoted to advice on healthy exercise, and questions on athletic subjects are cheerfully answered by the author 'PHYSICAL DIRECTOR.'"
