Tom Swift And His Electric Rifle - Chapter 9. Attacked By A Whale
CHAPTER IX. ATTACKED BY A WHALESurprise at Mr. Anderson's announcement held Tom silent for a moment. That the gentleman whom he had been the means of rescuing, among others, from Earthquake Island, should be met with so unexpectedly, was quite a coincidence, but when it developed that he was bound to the same part of the African continent as were Tom and his friends, and when he said he hoped to rescue some missionaries from the very red pygmies so feared by the old elephant hunter--this was enough...

CHAPTER X. A WILD HORSE STAMPEDE"Who is that man?" demanded Tom pointing to the one Ned had indicated. Tom's chum had had a glimpse of a shining revolver in the hip pocket of one of the mule drivers, and knowing that the simple natives were not in the habit of carrying such weapons, the lad had communicated his suspicions to Tom. "What man, senor?" asked the head mule driver. "That one!" and the young inventor again pointed toward him. And, now that Tom looked a second time he saw that the man was...

PART II. THE OGRE OF CESENA CHAPTER XIX. DOOMEDAcross the length of that hall our eyes met--hers and mine--and held each other's glances. To me the room and all within it formed an indistinct and misty picture, from out of which there clearly gleamed my Paola's sweet, white face. All at the table had risen with Ramiro, and now, copying their leader, they bared their heads in outward token of such respect as certainly would have been felt by any men less abandoned than were they before so much saintly...

CHAPTER VI. THE YOUNG MAN FROM THE COUNTRY HEARS SOME NEWS"I say, mister." Douglas started round, cramped with his long lingering against the stone wall. A girl was standing by his side. There were roses in her hat and a suspicion of powder upon her cheeks. "Were you speaking to me?" he asked hesitatingly. She laughed shortly. "No one else within earshot that I know of," she answered. "I saw you throw that parcel over." "I was just wishing," he remarked, "that I could get it back." "Well, you are...

CHAPTER XVII. BARBARA AND OTHERSAt this point, Barbara's friend came into the room, and they went away together. Theodora, so named by her mother because she was born on a Sunday, was a very different girl from Barbara. Nominally friends, neither understood the other. Theodora was the best of the family, but that did not suffice to make her interesting. She was short, stout, rather clumsy, with an honest, thick-featured face, and entirely without guile. Even when she saw it, she could not believe... Long Stories - Post by : stillgreen - Author : George Macdonald - Read : 2486

Luck Or Cunning? - Chapter 11. The Way Of Escape
CHAPTER XI. The Way of EscapeTo sum up the conclusions hitherto arrived at. Our philosophers have made the mistake of forgetting that they cannot carry the rough-and-ready language of common sense into precincts within which politeness and philosophy are supreme. Common sense sees life and death as distinct states having nothing in common, and hence in all respects the antitheses of one another; so that with common sense there should be no degrees of livingness, but if a thing is alive at all it...

This is a command from God, my friends, which well worth a few minutes' consideration this day;--well worth considering, because, though it was spoken eighteen hundred years ago, yet God has not changed since that time;--He is just as glorious as ever; and Christian men's relation to God has not changed since that time; they still live, and move, and have their being in God; they...

The Eyes Of The World - Chapter 37. The Man Was Insane
Chapter XXXVII. The Man Was InsaneNeither Sibyl Andres nor her companion, the next morning, reopened their conversation of the night before. Each was preoccupied and silent, with troubled thoughts that might not be spoken. Often, as the forenoon passed, Sibyl saw the man listening, as though for a step on the mountainside above. She knew, without being told, that the convict was expecting his master. It was, perhaps, ten o'clock, when they heard a sound that told them some one was approaching. The...

THE KEYSWe were all by this time greatly interested in the proceedings; and when another hackman was called we recognized at once that an effort was about to be made to connect this couple with the one who had alighted at Mr. Van Burnam's door. The witness, who was a melancholy chap, kept his stand on the east side of the Square. At about twenty minutes to twelve, he was awakened from a nap he had been taking on the top of his coach, by a sharp rap on...

CHAPTER VIIIOne afternoon, some days after Philip's return from an inspection of the mines of the Portage Copper Company, and an hour ahead of his usual time, the velvet curtain was pushed aside and the young man walked in. Not only did he move with his most important "bank director's step," but he brought with him an air of responsibility only seen in magnates who control the destinies of corporations and the savings of their stockholders. "What's the matter, Phil?" asked Adam with a laugh. "Have... Long Stories - Post by : Hugh_de_Payen - Author : Francis Hopkinson Smith - Read : 2619

CHAPTER X. MCFUDD'S BRASS BANDOur hero had been installed at Miss Teetum's for a month or more, when one night at dinner a tiny envelope about the size of a visiting-card was brought in by the middle-aged waitress and laid beside Simmons's plate. The envelope contained six orchestra seats at the Winter Garden and was accompanied by a note which read as follows: "Bring some of the boys; the piece drags." The musician studied the note carefully and a broad smile broke over his face. As one of the first... Long Stories - Post by : adamsacres - Author : Francis Hopkinson Smith - Read : 1948

The huge rhamphorhynchus-like reptile that I had brought back with me from the inner world--the ugly Mahar that Hooja the Sly One had substituted for my dear Dian at the moment of my departure--filled them with wonder...

CHAPTER XV. LOVE IN THE STREETSLewisham was not quite clear what course he meant to take in the high enterprise of foiling Lagune, and indeed he was anything but clear about the entire situation. His logical processes, his emotions and his imagination seemed playing some sort of snatching game with his will. Enormous things hung imminent, but it worked out to this, that he walked home with Ethel night after night for--to be exact--seven-and-sixty nights. Every week night through November and December,...

VOLUME II CHAPTER VII HAVE lingered thus long on the extreme bank, the wasting shoal that stretched into the stream of life, dallying with the shadow of death. Thus long, I have cradled my heart in retrospection of past happiness, when hope was. Why not for ever thus? I am not immortal; and the thread of my history might be spun out to the limits of my existence. But the same sentiment that first led me to pourtray scenes replete with tender recollections, now bids me hurry on. The same yearning...

Chapter Eleven. The Wicked King and Googly-GooWhen our friends approached the great doorway of the castle they found it guarded by several soldiers dressed in splendid uniforms. They were armed with swords and lances. Cap'n Bill walked straight up to them and asked:"Does the King happen to be at home?""His Magnificent and Glorious Majesty, King Krewl, is at present inhabiting his Royal Castle," was the stiff reply."Then I guess we'll go in an' say how-d'ye-do," continued Cap'n Bill, attempting to...

The Land Of The Blessed Virgin; Sketches And Impressions In Andalusia - Chapter VIII. (Sidenote: Cordova)
Ronda, owing its peculiarities to the surrounding mountains, was not really very characteristic of the country, and might equally well have been an highland townlet in any part of Southern Europe. But Cordova offers immediately the full sensation of Andalusia. It is absolutely a Moorish city, white and taciturn, so that you are astonished to meet people in European dress rather than Arabs, in shuffling yellow slippers. The streets are curiously silent; for the carriage, as in Tangiers, is done by... Nonfictions - Post by : mrtwist - Author : W. Somerset Maugham - Read : 2013

There are too many dangers lurking here to suit me, and Glinda may be able to restore us to our proper forms.""If we turn south now," the Tin Owl replied, "we might go straight into the Emerald City.

CHAPTER XXX. Showing What Major Grantly Did After His WalkIn going down from the church to the Small House Lily Dale had all the conversation to herself. During some portion of the way the path was only broad enough for two persons, and here Major Grantly walked by Lily's side, while Grace followed them. Then they found their way into the house, and Lily made her little speech to her mother about catching the major. "Yes, my dear, I have seen Major Grantly before," said Mrs Dale. "I suppose he has...
