The Leavenworth Post, Kansas, May 7, 1910

It is of vital importance for you to know the following:
If I can have good health?
If I can have good luck?
If I can succeed in business?
If I can conquer my enemies?
If I can marry the one I choose?
If I can conquer my rival?
If I can make anyone love me?
If I can mend my family troubles?
If I can get a good position?
If I can control any one?
If I can make a distant one think of me?
If I can settle a quarrel?
If I can locate the buried treasure?
If I can hold my husband’s love?
If I can hold my wife’s love?

How to control and fascinate anyone you love and admire.

No matter what your life has been, I will start you right again. i will tell you how to control your friends and enemies.

Dostoevsky is inwardly so infinitely vast that he reaches beyond the boundaries of man and on his verge relates to both elder brothers of adam, both the angel and the demon. In him they have enough space to quest, alternately govern him and pursue in him the eternal struggle for man. That angel is, after all, corrupt, that saint is fallen, and that demon has not lost the memory of his Fatherland hoping to compel his return. with Dostoevsky nothing is definite apart from the desire for grace of God. But had he ever attained it fully? - That is the question. And the rest is divergence - which Dostoevsky himself confesses - schism, combat for self with the self, inner war between delight and torture, love and capture, humility and pride, contempt and fear of taunt, wrathful envy and will to sacrifice, magnanimity and vileness, grace and infamy, clairvoyance and blindness, tears of repentance and frenetic malediction. and this is my Dostoevsky: magnificent always, often odious, always perilous and terrifying.
