With the aid of his two underlings, The Flopper and Pale Face Harry, and his girl friend, Helena, he sets the plan in motion. Madison's inspiration came from a newspaper article he read about a healer called The Patriarch in a small Maine town. As the four descend upon the innocents of the town to pull the scam, they get caught up in the lives of the locals and of The Patriarch.

|The New York Times, April
ALBERT B. PAINE, 76, BIOGRAPHER, DEAD: Novelist and Writer of Mark Twain's Life - Stricken in Florida on Way Here. Began as Photographic Supply Dealer - Was Decorated by France for Joan of Arc Book.
NEW SMYRNA, Fla., April 9 (AP).
Albert Bigelow Paine of West Redding, Conn., author and biographer, died here tonight after an illness of four weeks. His age was 75. A member of the Pulitzer Prize Committee for many years, he had just finished reading a novel which may bring its author the award next month. Mr. Paine spent the Winter in South Florida and was en route to New York when he was stricken and brought to a hospital here. For the past forty years, Mr. Paine had spent most of his time in Europe and the East. Survivors include the widow, Mrs. Dora L. Paine, who was with her husband; three daughters. Mrs. Louise Paine Benjamin of New York, associate editor of The Ladies' Home Journal; Mrs. Frances Paine Wade of Paris, France, and Mrs. J. H. Cushman of West Redding, and a sister, Mrs. Carry Alexander of Orange Park, Fla. The body will be sent to West Redding for funeral services and burial.
Wrote Twain Biography: Albert Bigelow Paine wrote fiction, humor, verse and edited several magazines, but his outstanding work was a three-volume biography of Mark Twain, with whom he lived and traveled for four years. In addition, he wrote "The Boy's Life of Mark Twain" (1916) and "A Short Life of Mark Twain" (1920). He was Twain's literary executor and arranged for publication of "Mark Twain's Letters" (1917). "Thomas Nast - His Period and His Pictures" (1904) was Mr. Paine's first biography. He also wrote lives of Lillian Gish, Captain Bill MacDonald of the Texas Rangers and George F. Baker, New York banker. Mr. Paine lived for several years in France and wrote "Joan of Arc, Maid of France," and "The Girl in White Armor," works which brought him from the French Government the decoration of Chevalier in the Legion of Honor.His travel books, all widely circulated, included "The Car That Went Abroad," "The Ship Dwellers" and "The Tent Dwellers." His first novel was "The Bread Line" (1900) and he followed it in 1901 with "The Great White Way," a title for Broadway and New York's theatrical district that came into general use.All through the years he turned out skits, sketches and a steady string of books for children, the "Hollow Tree," "Arkansas Bear" and "Deep Woods," the first of which were produced in the Nineties and which are still selling.
Spent Youth in West: Mr. Paine was born July 10, 1861, in New Bedford, Mass., the fifth child of Samuel Estabrook Paine, a Vermont farmer and storekeeper, and Mercy Coval Kirby Paine of South Dartmouth, Mass., daughter of a family of seafaring folk. When he was a year old, the family moved to Bentonsport, Iowa, where the father owned a store and a farm. But in a few months the elder Paine marched away to the Civil War. After the war the family moved to Xenia, Ill. There Mr. Paine attended a one-room school, writing "compositions" for the weekly "literary" exercises. At 20 he went to St. Louis, learned photography, tramped with camera for three years through the South and then set himself up as a dealer in photographic supplies in Fort Scott, Kan. He kept this up for ten years, but wrote, too, and his first book, "Rhymes by Two Friends" (1893), was also the first book of William Allen White, for it was a collection of their verse. A pleasant note from Richard Harding Davis, accepting a Paine story for Harper's Weekly, decided him to turn author in earnest, and in 1895 he sold his photographic business and went to New York.

Gilbert Parker was born in Canada in 1862 and moved to the U.S.after marrying a New Yorker. He travelled extensively across America. He moved to England in 1890 where he established himself as a successful romantic novelist. He was elected to the House of Commons in 1900 where he represented Gravesend for the Conservative Party. Following the outbreak of the Great War he worked for Britain's War Propaganda Bureau to sway public opinion in America. He produced propaganda pamphlets, including "What is the Matter With England?" (1915), "Is England Apathetic?" (1915) and "An Account of the Origins and Conduct of the Great War" (1915). He retired from politics at the 1918 General Election. His novels and collections of tales usually deal either with the history of Canada or with England and the Empire.

|Al Capone: The Biography of a Self-Made Man
1931 ~ Ives Washburn ~ 355 pages.
Flyleaf inscription: “Burroughs, Tarzana, February 1931.”
The first of four essential Capone biographies, this by Chicago newspaperman Fred Pasley. While it has the advantage of being written during the time these events occurred, it is not the work of a skilled biographer. No details of Capone's life emerge, and the text waddles around with few grounding points. It has been written elsewhere that Capone representatives reviewed and approved its publication, and, conversely, that Capone was infuriated at its publication. The ending reads like "Alice Through the Looking Glass" on bad bootleg hooch. Excellent accounts of Capone's August 10, 1926, hit attempt against Weiss and Drucci in front of the Standard Oil Building and of the sensational June 9, 1930, murder of fellow newspaperman Jake Lingle. Lively prose with its 1920s crime-reporter lingo, and occasional insights into the tenor of the times.

Read the e-Text
Col. John Henry Patterson (1865-1947): In March 1898 the British
started building a railway bridge over the Tsavo (SAH-vo) River in East
Africa. Over the next nine months, two large male lions killed and ate
nearly 140 railway workers. Crews tried to scare off the lions and built
campfires and thorn fences for protection, but to no avail. Hundreds of
workers fled Tsavo, halting construction on the bridge. Before work could
resume, chief engineer Lt. Col. John Henry Patterson (1865-1947) had to
eliminate the lions and their threat. After many near misses, he finally
shot the first lion on December 9, 1898, and three weeks later brought
down the second. The first lion killed measured nine feet, eight inches
(3 m) from nose to tip of tail. It took eight men to carry the carcass
back to camp. The construction crew returned and completed the bridge in
February 1899. (The 1996 movie "The Ghost and the Darkness" was based on
Patterson's adventures in Tsavo.)

The White Devil's Mate - 1926
This thrilling true story of adventure is a companion volume of Palen's The White Devil of the Black Sea. The White Devil's Mate is the breathless narrative of a young girl who was brought up a member of the Russian nobility, married the White Devil during the War, and afterwards followed his wild career of hunting the Bolsheviks and being hunted by them, living a life of almost unbelievable romance and adventure. How she helped her daredevil husband in his wild exploits and what she thought of and felt during the days when death and violence hovered like an ever-present shadow over her life, makes a biography even more fascinating and moving than that of her husband.
