ALL-STORY was one of the earliest pulp magazines, with its first issue coming out in January, 1905. Monthly until 1914, in March of that year it went weekly, and stayed more-or-less at that frequency until it was combined into ARGOSY in the middle of 1920. In May of 1914 it absorbed CAVALIER (begun 1908), a similar Munsey title at that time also published every week. (For that matter, CAVALIER had absorbed THE SCRAP BOOK, yet another early Munsey title, in 1912.)

The Madness of Method—Frank Leon Smith
Mildly humorous story about a very methodical man who intended to choose a wife in the same manner he ordered his food.
The Wild Man—Octavus Roy Cohen

Treasure of Su—George Foxhall

Wolfs Furniture Mine—Ralph J. Roeder
