Mister Ron's Basement #711

Continuing our Monday Book Serialization with Max Adeler's 1880 novelette, 'Fortunate Island,' concerning an American professor and his daughter, carrying advanced 19th century technology, stranded on a mysterious island filled with castles, knights, and descendants of King Arthur's Kingdom. If this sounds to you a bit like Mark Twain's 'A Connecticut Yakee in King Arthur's Court,' well, it also seemed so to Max Adeler...

Today, the Professor and Tilly tour Baron Bors' Castle, to their utter fascination...

SUNDAY SALAD brings you two Stanley Huntley sketches -- a Mr. and Mrs. Breezy story from 1882, 'Gaining A Point' and a Mr. and Mrs. Spoopendyke tale, 'An Impromptu Excursion' from 1880.
