The Mysteries Of Udolpho - Volume II - Chapter VIII
VOLUME II - CHAPTER VIIIHe wears the rose of youth upon his cheek. SHAKESPEAREWe now return to Valancourt, who, it may be remembered, remained at Tholouse, some time after the departure of Emily, restless and miserable. Each morrow that approached, he designed should carry him from thence; yet to-morrow and to-morrow came, and still saw him lingering in the scene of his former happiness. He could not immediately tear himself from the spot he had been accustomed to converse with Emily, or from the... Long Stories - Post by : frankbck - Author : Ann Radcliffe - Read : 973

Vanity Fair - Chapter LX. Returns to the Genteel World
Good fortune now begins to smile upon Amelia. We are glad to get her out of that low sphere in which she has been creeping hitherto and introduce her into a polite circle--not so grand and refined as that in which our other female friend, Mrs. Becky, has appeared, but still having no small pretensions to gentility and fashion. Jos's friends were all from the three presidencies, and his new house was in the comfortable Anglo-Indian district of which Moira Place is the centre. Minto Square, Great Clive...

Vanity Fair - Chapter LXV. Full of Business and Pleasure
The day after the meeting at the play-table, Jos had himself arrayed with unusual care and splendour, and without thinking it necessary to say a word to any member of his family regarding the occurrences of the previous night, or asking for their company in his walk, he sallied forth at an early hour, and was presently seen making inquiries at the door of the Elephant Hotel. In consequence of the fetes the house was full of company, the tables in the street were already surrounded by persons smoking...

The Virginians - Chapter XLVII. Visitors in Trouble
Mr. Gumbo's generous and feeling conduct soothed and softened the angry heart of his master, and Harry's second night in the spunging-house was passed more pleasantly than the first. Somebody at least there was to help and compassionate with him. Still, though softened in that one particular spot, Harry's heart was hard and proud towards almost all the rest of the world. They were selfish and ungenerous, he thought. His pious Aunt Warrington, his lordly friend March, his cynical cousin Castlewood,--all...

Treasure Island - PART FOUR. The Stockade - 16. Narrative Continued
16. Narrative Continued by the Doctor: How the Ship Was AbandonedIT was about half past one--three bells in the sea phrase--that the two boats went ashore from the HISPANIOLA. The captain, the squire, and I were talking matters over in the cabin. Had there been a breath of wind, we should have fallen on the six mutineers who were left aboard with us, slipped our cable, and away to sea. But the wind was wanting; and to complete our helplessness, down came Hunter with the news that Jim Hawkins had... Long Stories - Post by : selva - Author : Robert Louis Stevenson - Read : 3069

Chapter VI. THE GREAT AWAKENINGAnd now I come to the end of this extraordinary incident, so overshadowing in its importance, not only in our own small, individual lives, but in the general history of the human race. As I said when I began my narrative, when that history comes to be written, this occurrence will surely stand out among all other events like a mountain towering among its foothills. Our generation has been reserved for a very special fate since it has been chosen to experience so wonderful... Long Stories - Post by : bear60 - Author : Arthur Conan Doyle - Read : 2492

The Mystery Of Cloomber - Chapter 11. Of The Casting Away Of The Barque 'Belinda'
CHAPTER XI. OF THE CASTING AWAY OF THE BARQUE "BELINDA"The third of October had broken auspiciously with a bright sun and a cloudless sky. There had in the morning been a slight breeze, and a few little white wreaths of vapour drifted here and there like the scattered feathers of some gigantic bird, but, as the day wore on, such wind as there was fell completely away, and the air became close and stagnant. The sun blazed down with a degree of heat which was remarkable so late in the season, and... Long Stories - Post by : peterdobler - Author : Arthur Conan Doyle - Read : 1655

CHAPTER VIII. AT THE GATE OF EDENWhen Eric went to the old Connors orchard the next evening he found Kilmeny waiting for him on the bench under the white lilac tree, with the violin in her lap. As soon as she saw him she caught it up and began to play an airy delicate little melody that sounded like the laughter of daisies. When it was finished she dropped her bow, and looked up at him with flushed cheeks and questioning eyes. "What did that say to you?" she wrote. "It said something like this,"...

CHAPTER XXVI. THE MYSTERYI have before me, as one of the original sources of information for this history, a file of _The Wheat County Weakly Windmill for 1856. It is not a large sheet, but certainly it is a very curious one. In its day this _Windmill ground many grists, though its editorial columns were chiefly occupied with impartial gushing and expansive articles on the charms of scenery, fertility of soil, superiority of railroad prospects, admirableness of location, healthfulness, and general...

"Words are things!" said I, smiling. "Very light things! A person must be tender, indeed, that is hurt by a word." "The very lightest thing may hurt, if it falls on a tender place." "I don't like people who have these tender places," said aunt Rachel. "I never get hurt at what is said to me. No--never! To be ever... Long Stories - Post by : Sangel - Author : T. S.

Let me look again at the words in the cover. Let me awake! Let me disabuse my senses! Yes. It is plain. Miss Jessup repented her of her confession. Something in that unopened letter-- believing the contents of that known, there were inducements to sincerity which the recovery of that letter, and the finding it unopened,...

CHAPTER XXIX. SOME UNEXPECTED CHANGESWhen Conrad came home his first visit was to his mother. "Has anything been found out about the stolen opera glass?" he asked, with a studied air of indifference. "I should say there had," she answered. "I followed the clew you suggested, and searched the boy's room. On the bureau I found the pawn ticket." "You don't say so! What a muff Ben must have been to leave it around so carelessly! What did you do with it?" "I waited till Mr. Lynx was conferring with...

"I have been here half the night," said Tom, quietly. "How is that?" "I was afraid you would be robbed." "Did you have any particular reason for fearing it?" asked Miles, quickly. Thereupon Tom described his chance visit of the evening before, and what he saw. As might have been expected, John Miles was indignant. "The miserable sneak!...

CHAPTER XXIV. Dedicated To The College Of Physicians And SurgeonsBy this time Samoa's wounded arm was in such a state, that amputation became necessary. Among savages, severe personal injuries are, for the most part, accounted but trifles. When a European would be taking to his couch in despair, the savage would disdain to recline. More yet. In Polynesia, every man is his own barber and surgeon, cutting off his beard or arm, as occasion demands. No unusual thing, for the warriors of Varvoo to saw...

CHAPTER XV. AN ATTEMPT AT TERRORISMAll the world was driving, riding, or walking in the great avenue of the Park. The Governor had just gone by on horseback, accompanied by his sister and his A.D.C.'s, and Lady Eynesford's carriage was drawn up by the pathway. The air was full of gossip and rumours, for although it was an "off-day" at the House, and nothing important was expected to happen there before the following Monday, there had been that morning a meeting of the Premier's principal adherents,...
