RARA-AVIS: Chapter Titles Used in The Maltese Falcon

I've been curious about the chapter titles used in TMF. (My text is a sixth printing of the 1930 published novel.)

Did Dashell Hammett include the chapter titles when he published the installments in _The Black Mask_ or was this done in keeping with the standards of the time? I don't find the titles obtrusive, however.
