The Golden Snare - Chapter 6
CHAPTER VIAn hour later Philip looked at his watch. It was close to midnight. In that hour his nerves had been keyed to a tension that was almost at the breaking point. Not a sound came from off the Barren or from out of the scrub timber that did not hold a mental and physical shock for him. He believed that Bram and his pack would come up quietly; that he would not hear the man's footsteps or the soft pads of his beasts until they were very near. Twice a great snow owl fluttered over his head. A... Long Stories - Post by : mrtwist - Author : James Oliver Curwood - Read : 1355

Villa Rubein - Chapter 2
Chapter IIIt was early morning four days later, and Harz was loitering homewards. The shadows of the clouds passing across the vines were vanishing over the jumbled roofs and green-topped spires of the town. A strong sweet wind was blowing from the mountains, there was a stir in the branches of the trees, and flakes of the late blossom were drifting down. Amongst the soft green pods of a kind of poplar chafers buzzed, and numbers of their little brown bodies were strewn on the path.He passed a bench...

PART IIICHAPTER IIt was sunset of a hot day at Washington. Even at that hour the broad avenues, which diverged from the Capitol like the rays of another sun, were fierce and glittering. The sterile distances between glowed more cruelly than ever, and pedestrians, keeping in the scant shade, hesitated on the curbstones before plunging into the Sahara-like waste of crossings. The city seemed deserted. Even that vast army of contractors, speculators, place-hunters, and lobbyists, which hung on the heels... Long Stories - Post by : Ndoki - Author : Bret Harte - Read : 2697

Jane Eyre - Chapter XV
Mr. Rochester did, on a future occasion, explain it.

I shall ere long paint to you as well as one can without canvas,something like the true form of the whale as he actually appears tothe eye of the whaleman when in his own absolute body the whale ismoored alongside the whale-ship so that he can be fairly stepped uponthere. It may be worth while, therefore, previously to advert tothose curious imaginary portraits of him which even down to thepresent day confidently challenge the faith of the landsman.

The Utilitarian The Utilitarian

The Utilitarian
We sat around the stove discoursing of mighty deeds that we had done; of struggling up the Alps and forcing our way to summits then unwon; of fights with lions and hyenas, of facing grim and ghostly shapes, of dodging bailiffs and subpoenas, and many perilous escapes. And one sat by, distraught and gloomy, and listened to each stirring tale; his beard was long, his eyes were rheumy, his nose was red, his aspect stale. And this old pilgrim, dour and hoary, on all our pleasure drew the noose; for,... Poems - Post by : Jim_VanWyck - Author : Walt Mason - Read : 2441

To our joy and surprise We saw some violets in full bloom, Gazing at us with loving eyes, Thanking us for opening their tomb, Yet still they seemed so cozy and nice Enshrined in the crystal ice, While all else were drooping dead Gaily they held up their head.(The end)James McIntyre's poem: Lines On Violets...
