2
Even the Secret Service was often
forced to appeal to Coke Ennyday.

3
Coke Ennyday took no chances
on admitting a visitor without
  consulting his scientific
         periscope.

4
The gentleman rolling 
      in wealth.

5
"Press me out a bundle 
       of money."

6
At Short Beach, the mysterious
gentleman is joined by a female
         confederate.

7
The Leaping Fish.

8
Quietly Coke Ennyday
stole out on the rail.

9
At the bath house where 
the man of mystery made
 his weekly clean up.

10
"Give me that girl in marriage 
  or I'll spill the beans!"

11
Inane, the little fish-blower
     of Short Beach

		... Bessie Love

12
Without a moment to lose
Coke Ennyday arrived at
  the scene of action.

13
Stuck in the mud.

14
Exhausted by the mental 
        strain.

15
"You have saved my life!"

16
"I am Coke Ennyday,
 the detective. See!"

17
"Is this you?"

18
"Yep, that's me!"

19
Even the fish worked
    against him.

20
"Tell the fish-blower she
 has got to marry Fishy Joe
    within the week."

21
"You must consent to
 marry Fishy Joe within 
      the week."

22
"Have no fear. Coke Ennyday
 the scientific detective will
        protect you."

23
Japs on the leaping fish!
Get the cans! At last a cue!

24
"Smuggling! The secret 
       is mine!"

25
"Where is the young chap 
    that was here?"

26
"Coke Ennyday is on our trail!"

27
"Beat it to the laundry!
 We'll meet you there."

28
"Opium!"

29
"Woman, we've got to make
    a quick get-away!"

30
Full of hop.

31
In Chinatown, the laundry
where the gang does its
     dirty works.

32
"Girl, you are in my power."

33
"At last we meet face to face."

34
"That means fight in
     my country."

35
"The best man walks out!"

36
The duel in the dark.

37
The police lost their way.

38
"Nobody home."

39
But not the end of this story ...

"No, Douglas, you had better 
 give up scenario writing and
      stick to acting."
