Success: A Novel - Part 2. The Vision - Chapter 6
PART II. THE VISION CHAPTER VISuch members of the Brashear household as chose to accommodate themselves strictly to the hour could have eight o'clock breakfast in the basement dining-room for the modest consideration of thirty cents; thirty-five with special cream-jug. At these gatherings, usually attended by half a dozen of the lodgers, matters of local interest were weightily discussed; such as the progress of the subway excavations, the establishment of a new Italian restaurant in 11th Street,...

The Prince And Betty - Chapter 9. Mervo Changes Its Constitution
CHAPTER IX. MERVO CHANGES ITS CONSTITUTIONHumor, if one looks into it, is principally a matter of retrospect. In after years John was wont to look back with amusement on the revolution which ejected him from the throne of his ancestors. But at the time its mirthfulness did not appeal to him. He was in a frenzy of restlessness. He wanted Betty. He wanted to see her and explain. Explanations could not restore him to the place he had held in her mind, but at least they would show her that he was not... Long Stories - Post by : camforbes - Author : P G Wodehouse - Read : 2286

Through The Eye Of The Needle: A Romance - Part First - Chapter 24
PART FIRST CHAPTER XXIVSociety had to be taken into our confidence, and Mrs. Makely saw to it that there were no reserves with society. Our engagement was not quite like that of two young persons, but people found in our character and circumstance an interest far transcending that felt in the engagement of the most romantic lovers. Some note of the fact came to us by accident, as one evening when we stood near a couple and heard them talking. "It must be very weird," the man said; "something like...

Thence he was to proceed to New York by the steamboat train. "Good-by, Mr. Morton," said Frank, waving his cap as the stage started. "I hope you'll soon be back." "I hope so, too; good-by." Crack went the whip, round went the wheels. The horses started, and the stage rumbled off, swaying this way and that, as if top-heavy. Frank went slowly back to...

CHAPTER LXVI. PROGRESS AND CHANGEThings went on very quietly for a time. Arctura grew better, resumed her studies, and made excellent progress. She would have worked harder, but Donal would not let her. He hated forcing--even with the good will of the plant itself. He believed in a holy, unhasting growth. God's ways want God's time. Long after, people would sometimes say to him-- "That is very well in the abstract; but in these days of hurry a young fellow would that way be left ages behind!" "With...

Louvier assembled round his table the elite of the young Parisians who constituted the oligarchy of fashion, to meet whom he had invited his new friend the Marquis de Rochebriant. Most of them belonged to the Legitimist party, the noblesse of the faubourg; those who did not, belonged to no political party at all,--indifferent to the cares of mortal States as the gods of Epicurus. Foremost among this Jeunesse doree were... Long Stories - Post by : mikejb - Author : Edward Bulwer-lytton - Read : 2825

And whatever Joseph's astronomy might have previously taught him to the contrary, he knew by his senses that the earth thereupon turned entirely over three times in two seconds. His confused response, though unintelligible, answered all purposes, as the lady found herself the next moment hurrying across the...

He suggested one person after another to the exacting inventor, but none were satisfactory to him and each in turn was turned down. It is not every one we want to have share a world-wide triumph or an ignominious defeat. And the days were passing. He had said in a moment of elation, "I will do it alone;" but he knew even then that he could not. Two hands were necessary to start...

CHAPTER XXIIIFive days later the women and children from Warrior Gap, most of them bereaved, all of them unnerved by the experiences of that awful day, arrived at old Fort Frayne, escorted by a strong command of infantry and all that was left of the cavalry troop at the stockade. A sad procession it was as it slowly forded the Platte and ascended the winding road to the post sorrowing, sympathetic army women met and ministered to them. With them, too, came such of the wounded as could be moved,... Long Stories - Post by : tlomax - Author : Charles King - Read : 1950

Both men stared confusedly at the woman as she shut the door slowly and, as it might seem, carefully, before she faced them. "Here I am, George," she said, her face alive with vital adventure. His face was instantly swept by a storm of feeling for her, his nature responded to the sound of her voice and the passion of her face....

Can you arrange to have the clothes she has on, and those she brought with her, all of them bundled up and sent in to my laboratory, together with samples of her body fluids as soon as the coroner can supply you?" Mackay nodded. This pleased him. This seemed to be tangible action, promising tangible results. Again Kennedy glanced... Long Stories - Post by : oliver - Author : Arthur B. Reeve - Read : 712

The first letter that he opened was from his landlord, and contained his bill for the past week. As he looked at the sum total, Amelius presented to perfection the aspect of a serious young man. He took pen, ink, and paper, and made some elaborate calculations. Money that he had too generously lent, or too freely given away, appeared in his statement of expenses, as well...

A young fellow at a window of the cutting-room noticed her first. "Look at that, Jim Tenny," said he, with a shove of an elbow towards his next neighbor."Get out, will ye?" growled Jim Tenny, but he looked.Then three girls from the stitching-room...

Slowly Dale lowered his arm with gesture expressive of a strange finality, an eloquent despair, of which he was unconscious.He turned to the park, to his camp, and the many duties of a hunter. The park did not seem the same, nor his home, nor his work."I reckon this feelin's natural," he soliloquized, resignedly, "but... Long Stories - Post by : ow24160 - Author : Zane Grey - Read : 2874

As he looked, the third caribou was pulled down from its spit, and the multitude of dogs rushed in upon the abandoned carcasses of the other two.He caught his breath quickly as a loud shout and the wailing yelp of a hurt dog rose for an instant above all other sounds. Only one thing was wanting to complete another picture in his brain--a scene which had burned itself... Long Stories - Post by : ow24160 - Author : James Oliver Curwood - Read : 1636

From the mouth of Exe to the mouth of Teign the coast is uninteresting. Such beauty as it once possessed has been destroyed by the railway. Cliffs of red sandstone drop to the narrow beach, warm between the blue of sky and sea, but without grandeur, and robbed of their native grace by navvy-hewing, which for the most part makes of them a mere embankment: their verdure stripped away, their juttings tunnelled, along their base the steel parallels of smoky traffic. Dawlish and Teignmouth have in themselves... Long Stories - Post by : cclittle - Author : George Gissing - Read : 1371
