Must-Read Mysteries, Pre-1920!

I'm rediscovering the mystery genre and am looking for a fantastic mystery story to read, specifically something older--I'm getting interested in what happened in the genre during and immediately after World War I, so I'm specifically interested in stories/books published before 1920. Elements of international intrigue are a plus. Please, mystery lovers, help me out! Thank you in advance.

Book of Gal Pal Detectives with Salami-Loving Dog, with Crime Scenes with Clue Arrows?

I have a vague, sketchy recollection of a book series I used to read in 2nd and 3rd grade (20 years ago). It was about two young girls, friends, who solved mysteries together. They also had a dog that loved salami. I believe the were normal books, not comic books, but each book had cartoony pictures of "crime scenes" and such, with little arrows pointing out certain clues (kinda like Bernie Mac, except funny). Anyone have any idea what I'm talking about?
