Sherlock Jr.

1 
There is an old proverb
  which says:

Don't try to do two things
 at once and expect to do
    justice to both.

2
This is the story of a boy 
  who tried it. While
employed as a moving 
picture operator in a
small town theater he
was also studying to be
    a detective.

3
"Say - Mr. Detective -
 before you clean up 
 any mysteries - clean
   up this theater."

4
The girl in the case.

	- Kathryn McGuire

5
The girl's father had
     nothing to do so
he got a hired man to 
help him.

	- Joe Keaton
	- Erwin Connelly

6
The local sheik.

	- Ward Crane

"I lost a dollar -
 did you find it?"

8
"Describe it."

9
"I lost a dollar."

10
"Some one has stolen 
      my watch."

11
"It looks like a job
 for the police."

12
"I'll take charge of this 
 case and start by 
 searching everybody."

13
"Hey -
       I'm the fellow who
       lost the watch."

14
"Why don't you search 
      him, too?"

15
"I'm sorry, my boy, but
 we never want to see
 you in this house again."

16
As a detective he was all
 wet, so he went back
to see what he could do
   to his other job.

17
"Can you describe the 
   man who pawned 
    this watch?"

18
"Some one has stolen
     the pearls."

19
"We are lost! He is sending
 for the world's greatest 
 detective - Sherlock Jr.!"

20
The crime-crushing
 criminologist -

   SHERLOCK JR.

21
"Don't bother to explain -
 this is a simple case for
          me."

22
"Pardon, sir. I think
 there is something 
   in your drink."

23
By the next day the
    master mind had
completely solved the
mystery -- with the
exception of locating
the pearls and finding 
    the thief.

24
 His assistant ---
                   Gillette.

A Gem who was Ever-Ready
in a bad scrape.

25
"That's a detective.
 When he's dead I'll
 put you in there."

26
"And now I'll tell you where
  our little sweetie is
      this minute!"

27
"And she's waiting 
  there for me."

28
"Be careful or one of 
  us will get hurt."

29
"I never thought
 you'd make it."

30
"Father sent me to tell
 you that we've made 
 a terrible mistake ---"

THE END
