Tom Swift In The Land Of Wonders - Chapter 11. The Vampires
CHAPTER XI. THE VAMPIRESTom Swift looked deliberately around. It was characteristic of him that, though by nature he was prompt in action, he never acted so hurriedly as to obscure his judgment. So, though now Ned showed a trace of strange excitement, Tom was cool. "What is it?" asked the young inventor. "What's the matter? What did you think you saw, Ned; another alligator?" "Alligator? Nonsense! Up on shore? I saw a black shadow, and I didn't THINK I saw it, either. I really did." Tom laughed... Long Stories - Post by : moodyk - Author : Victor Appleton - Read : 579

Tom Swift And His Motor-cycle - Chapter 7. Off On A Spin
CHAPTER VII. OFF ON A SPINTom's first impulse was to run after the automobile, the red tail-light of which glowed through the blackness like a ruby eye. Then he realized that it was going from him at such a swift pace that it would be impossible to get near it, even if his bicycle was in working order. "But if I had my motor-cycle I'd catch up to them," he murmured. "As it is, I must hurry home and tell dad. This is another link in the queer chain that seems to be winding around us. I wonder who...

The Moving Picture Boys On The Coast - Chapter 19. On The Trail
CHAPTER XIX. ON THE TRAILThere was no doubt about it, the wreckers were not there, and the indications were that they had betaken themselves to some other location. When the men flashed the pocket electric lamps they had brought with them, the little opening at the top of the cliff was well illuminated. "Nothing doing!" exclaimed Joe, regretfully. "They must have skipped out right after they chased us," decided Blake. "And they went in a hurry, too," declared Tom Cardiff. "What makes you think so?"...

But there were now so many fishermen rushing about here and there that they paid no attention to the excited theatrical man, who issued orders right and left. "What shall we do?" demanded C. C., who had gotten off to one side with the girl he was supposed to have "rescued" from the burning cabin. "I don't know!" cried Mr. Ringold. "The whole play is spoiled by those fellows butting in. Hi, there!" he called... Long Stories - Post by : ecdavis - Author : Victor Appleton - Read : 1860

Tom Swift And His Motor-boat: The Rivals Of Lake Carlopa - Chapter 6. Towing Some Girls
CHAPTER VI. TOWING SOME GIRLSWith a sense of anger mingled with an apprehension lest some harm should have been done to his craft, the owner of the ARROW went carefully over it. He could find nothing wrong. The engine was all right and all that appeared to have been accomplished by the unbidden visitor was the opening of the locked forward compartment. That this had been done by one of the many keys on Andy Foger's ring was evident. "Now what could have been his object?" mused Tom. "I should...

That Fortune - Chapter 1
CHAPTER IOn a summer day, long gone among the summer days that come but to go, a lad of twelve years was idly and recklessly swinging in the top of a tall hickory, the advance picket of a mountain forest. The tree was on the edge of a steep declivity of rocky pasture-land that fell rapidly down to the stately chestnuts, to the orchard, to the cornfields in the narrow valley, and the maples on the bank of the amber river, whose loud, unceasing murmur came to the lad on his aerial perch like the voice...

CHAPTER XXThe place that Rodney Henderson occupied in the mind of the public was shown by the attention the newspapers paid to his death. All the great newspapers in all the cities of importance published long and minute biographies of him, with pictorial illustrations, and day after day characteristic anecdotes of his remarkable career. Nor was there, it is believed, a newspaper in the United States, secular, religious, or special, that did not comment upon his life. This was the more remarkable...

CHAPTER VThe old Thornton house on Defeated Creek had for almost two decades stood vacant save for an occasional and temporary tenant. A long time back a formal truce had been declared in the feud that had split in sharp and bitter cleavage the family connections of the Harpers and the Doanes. Back into the limbo of tradition and vagueness went the origin of that "war". The one unclouded certainty was that the hatred had grown until even in this land of vendetta its levy of violent deaths had been...

CHAPTER VICal Maggard sat gazing into the blaze that leaped and eddied fitfully under the blackened chimney. In one hand drooped the sheet of paper that he had found fastened to his door and in the other the pipe which had been forgotten and had died. He looked over his shoulder at the door which he had left ajar. Through its slit he could see a moonlit strip of sky, and rising slowly he circled the room, holding the protection of the shadowy walls until he reached and barred it. That much was his...

Without removing his hat or overcoat, he took the letter which he found propped up on the mantelpiece and addressed to him to the window and read it. DEAR BROTHER LEONARD,--It wasn't your fault and I don't think it was mine. If either of us is to blame, it is certainly I, for though you are such a clever and ambitious young person, you really know very... Long Stories - Post by : cmyer00 - Author : E.

It looked very tempting, and it was indeed a dish of which I was particularly fond, but I realized that it had been specially ordered by Louis, and with a sigh I pushed it on one side. I finished my luncheon with rolls and butter, and took care to procure my coffee before Louis returned. "Well," I asked, as he stopped once more before me, "what is it to be? Are you going to give...

CHAPTER TWENTY SEVEN. CAPTURED BY SPANIARDS We expected the next instant to be sent to the bottom of the Scheld, when a sudden blast filled our sails, almost tearing them from the bolt-ropes, and sending us gliding rapidly through the water. The guns aimed at our vessel sent their shot astern of us, two or three only passing through our mizzen, but doing no further damage. The next vessel could not have escaped so well, but we saw her still standing close to us through the gloom. The other was... Long Stories - Post by : brokerage - Author : William H. G.

BOOK I CHAPTER VIIILETTER FROM ISAURA CICOGNA TO MADAME DE GRANTMESNIL. VILLA D'-----, A------. I can never express to you, my beloved Eulalie, the strange charm which a letter from you throws over my poor little lonely world for days after it is received. There is always in it something that comforts, something that sustains, but also a something that troubles and disquiets me. I suppose Goethe is right, "that it is the property of true genius to disturb all settled ideas," in order, no doubt, to...

The Americans and the Savarins clustered round Isaura when they quitted the refreshment-room. The party was breaking up. Vane would have offered his arm again to Isaura, but M. Savarin had forestalled him. The American was despatched by his wife to see for the carriage; and Mrs. Morley said, with her wonted sprightly tone of command, "Now, Mr. Vane, you have no option but...

There was the sanguine belief that deliverance was at hand; that Trochu would break through the circle of iron, and effect that junction with the army of Aurelles de Paladine which would compel the Germans to raise the investment;--belief rudely shaken by Ducrot's proclamation of the 4th, to...

(That which I know not is, perhaps, more sad and fearful still.)The casement stood open, and Viola was seated by it. Beneath sparkled the broad waters in the cold but cloudless sunlight; and to that fair form, that half-averted face, turned the eyes of many a gallant cavalier, as their gondolas glided by. But at last, in the centre of the canal, one of these... Long Stories - Post by : sbritner - Author : Edward Bulwer-lytton - Read : 1312

CHAPTER XXII. GETTING NEAR THE POLEHour after hour passed away, and still Hatteras persevered in his weary watch, though his hopes appeared doomed to disappointment.At length, about six in the evening, a dim, hazy, shapeless sort of mist seemed to rise far away between sea and sky. It was not a cloud, for it was constantly vanishing, and then reappearing next minute.Hatteras was the first to notice this peculiar phenomenon; but after an hour’s scrutiny through his telescope, he could make nothing...

"I've had enough of this infernal English climate. I'm going away." Piers was peeling a walnut. He did not raise his eyes or make the faintest sign of surprise. Steadily his fingers continued their task. His lips hardened a little, that was all. "Do you hear?" rapped out Sir Beverley. Piers bent his head. "What about...

"Mr. Lucas Errol is here," he told her, "with another gentleman. I knew your ladyship would wish to be at home to him." "Oh, certainly," she answered, rising. "I am always at home to Mr. Lucas Errol. Please tell him I am coming immediately." But she did not instantly follow Dimsdale. She stood instead... Long Stories - Post by : MalcolmL - Author : Ethel May Dell - Read : 1986

Beyond him was the humming city the lights bloomed like white flowers out of the enveloping dusk, and when he turned his profile, as he did once, against a jeweller's window, she saw every line of his large, strongly marked...
