Miss Florence Brentwood was on the trail of the evil Dr. Destructophilus, the mad Cambridge Professor of Astronomy now hell-bent on
conquering the Empire, nay, even the world! Scotland Yard refused to believe that such an eminent man could possibly be behind the
sabotage of Tower Bridge, or the theft of the Torridon ruby- but Miss Brentwood was no mean astrophysicist herself, and knew the
focussing power of a pure ruby to divert the flow of the ether itself. Why, her own hand-gun operated on that very principle, itself
a miracle of modern invention and a testament to the ingenuity of Miss Brentwood's intellect.
But brave home counties young ladies, however learned and well-educated they may be, are no match for the criminal mastermind
of the evil Doctor! He has set a trap for our heroine, and one into which she has duly fallen! Will anyone come to her rescue? Will
the Doctor's dastardly plot to reverse the polarity of the ether flow be foiled? Do not miss next week's edition of this serial, in
this very publication!
