The Fortunate Youth (1914)-
"The Fortunate Youth" has the magic of pure romance and the dramatic qualities that are a part of life's experiences when a man rises to great heights from poverty, oppression and mystery. Mr. Locke depicts a new sort of vagabond --Paul, a slum child whose only fortune is his extraordinary physical beauty. This beauty helps Paul to win his way upward in the social scale, and on his path he passes through various strata of Bohemia -- the caravan, the studio and thestage -- to the fulfillment of his splendid destiny.

The Red Planet-
War time story told in the first person by Major Meredyth, crippled in the Boer War and now acting as a sort of father confessor to other characters. Leonard Boyce, about whom there is an ugly story of his past record in the Boer War, is the real hero. Mystery centers about this incident and its effects upon his after life and his relations to Betty Fairfax to whom he was once engaged.(Third best selling novel of 1917.)

The Mountebank-
An orphaned boy becomes a traveling juggler, and later joins the army... many years later, as a general, he is faced with the social cost of his past, and must make difficult choices.

The Morals of Marcus Ordeyne-
One of those rare and much-to-be-desired stories which keep one divided between an interested impatience to get on and an irresistible temptation to linger for full enjoyment by the way."--Life.

The Joyous Adventures of Aristide Pujol-
With breathless interest we follow Aristide's career until, with a chuckle and a sigh of regret, we close the book on his last adventure -- that of matrimony.
