Bradley, Chester. Chester Bradley was created by George M. Cain and appeared in four stories in People's Ideal Fiction Magazine in 1911, beginning with “Talkine” (People’s Ideal Fiction Magazine, July 1911).

Chester Bradley, a well-meaning young man, inherits the Peltzheim Chemical Works from his college instructor Professor Peltzheim. While going through the professor's effects he discovers four bottles, which are solutions that the professor had invented. When imbibed or inhaled, the formulas have the following effects: poison, exhilaration, sleepiness, or loquacity. Through the rest of the stories Bradley uses the various serums to uncover a criminal impostor, get himself a girlfriend, help a henpecked judge, and get useless stock tips from the financier "John D. Morgenfehler."
