    Never heard of it, but it is in Slovak! ZRKADLO means mirror, and the topic of police and a deeply christian song sounds somewhat interesting. Ben Sent from

      We recently found a front page from a 1924 magazine named Zrkadlo at an antique shop. It is all in what appears to be Slovak or some similar Slavish, with the exception of the English words "Christmas Supplement" and "December 25, 1924". The cover artwork shows a conventional, rather modern Santa on a rooftop, ready to go down a chimney. His gift bag if full of copies of the ZRKADLO magazine. Interestingly, most of the copies show artwork of women in bathing suits in rather seductive poses - for 1924. Other words and phrases on the cover are standars Christmas and New Year fare: Stastlivy Novy Rok 1925, Vesele Vianoce, Vianocna Priloha. The artists signature is A. V. Fabry, dated 1924.
      On the reverse of the front page is an article which appears to be an editorial titled:
      Policajt a na'boz~na' piesen~.Rozpra'vka americke'ho vel'mestaod O. Henryho.
      Has anyone ever heard of this magazine?
