Merwin, S., & Webster, H. K. (1901). Calumet “K”. Retrieved from

A novel, with several elements of rather unusual interest. As a tale, it is swift, simple, and absorbing, and one does not willingly put it down until it is finished. It has to do with grain-elevator business, with railways, strikes, and commercial and financial matters generally, woven skilfully into a human story of love. -- The Commercial Advertiser 'Calumet K' is a novel that is exciting and absorbing, but not the least bit sensational. It is the story of a rush.... The book is an unusually good story; one that shows the inner workings of the labor union, and portrays men who are the bone and sinew of the earth.-- The Toledo Blade . The heroine in this case is the hero's stenographer; but the action of the story grows out of the attempt of rival capitalists and grain men to balk the building of a grain elevator by a set date. -- The Burlington Free Press (Excerpts from the advertising material at the end of /the-merry-anne-by-samuel-merwin/ The Merry Anne by Samuel Merwin) Note: This book contains racial comments that may be offensive to modern listeners.
