The Life And Voyages Of Christopher Columbus_volume 2 - Book 11 - Chapter 2
Book XI. Chapter II.Establishment of a Chain of Military Posts.--Insurrection of Guarionex, the Cacique of the Vega.(1496.)On arriving at Isabella, Don Bartholomew found it, as usual, a scene of misery and repining. Many had died during his absence; most were ill. Those who were healthy complained of the scarcity of food, and those who were ill, of the want of medicines. The provisions distributed among them, from the supply brought out a few months before by Pedro Alonzo Nino, had been consumed....

And that they might not add to the cares of their chief, they had pretended to know nothing, and had worked away at the preparations for the winter with the same zeal as the year before.Tears of emotion stood in Hobson’s eyes, and he made no attempt to conceal them, but seizing Marbre’s outstretched hand, he pressed it in his own.Yes, the soldiers all knew it, for Marbre had guessed it long ago. The filling of the... Long Stories - Post by : Sonya - Author : Jules Verne - Read : 2577

Frank's Campaign; Or, The Farm And The Camp - Chapter 11. Punishing A Bully
CHAPTER XI. PUNISHING A BULLYIt was fortunate for Mrs. Frost that she was so soon called upon to think for others. It gave her less time to grieve over her husband's absence, which was naturally a severe trial to her. As for Frank, though the harvest was gathered in, there were plenty of small jobs to occupy his attention. He divided with Jacob the care of the cows, and was up betimes in the morning to do his share of the milking. Then the pigs and chickens must be fed every day, and this Frank took...

CHAPTER XXI. THE BATTLE OF FREDERICKSBURGAbout the middle of December came the sad tragedy of Fredericksburg, in which thousands of our gallant soldiers yielded up their lives in a hard, unequal struggle, which brought forth nothing but mortification and disaster. The first telegrams which appeared in the daily papers brought anxiety and bodings of ill to many households. The dwellers at the farm were not exempt. They had been apprised by a recent letter that Mr. Frost's regiment now formed a part... Long Stories - Post by : SamBurnett - Author : Horatio Alger - Read : 1622

HOW TO PAINT CHINA AND HOW TO FORM STYLEMrs. Dove had a great many lodgers--she let rooms on each of her floors, and she called her lodgers by the name of the floor they occupied--first floor, second floor, third floor came and went to 10, Eden Street. The girls were known as "the attics," and Jasmine felt very indignant at the name. "It's almost as bad as being a tare," she said to Primrose. "Dear, dear! I never thought I should turn into an attic! What an unpleasant place London is!... Long Stories - Post by : dmindia - Author : L. T. Meade - Read : 2217

CHAPTER XX. LADDIE IS MISSINGMrs. Bunker had Mun Bun in her lap, finishing the buttoning of his shoes, but, when Rose called out about the papoose, her mother quickly set the little fellow down on the floor, and ran to the window from where she could see her daughter on the porch. "What did you say you had found, Rose?" she called. "I don't know, for sure," said Rose, "but I guess it's the papoose Red Feather wants. Anyhow it's a little Indian girl, and she's bigger than Russ. Come on down!" Mrs.... Long Stories - Post by : MarcusP - Author : Laura Lee Hope - Read : 916

CHAPTER XXIII. A TIMELY RESCUEJulius was filled with a terrible fear, when in the man who stood over him menacingly he recognized Tom Marlowe. He knew the man's brutal disposition, and that he was very much incensed against him. He looked wildly around him for help, but he could see no one. The sailor had hidden behind a large tree, and was not visible. "You're looking for help, are you?" sneered Marlowe. "Look all you want to. You're in my power. Now tell me, you treacherous young dog, why shouldn't... Long Stories - Post by : Donbaba - Author : Horatio Alger - Read : 903

The Moving Picture Girls At Rocky Ranch: Great Days Among The Cowboys - Chapter 21. The Burning Grass
CHAPTER XXI. THE BURNING GRASSThe announcement made by Russ caused considerable surprise, and, on the part of Mr. Pertell, dismay. "You don't mean that big reel--that important one which is a sort of key to all the rest--is missing; do you?" he asked. "That's it," replied Russ, ruefully. "It's clean gone!" "Maybe you didn't look carefully, or perhaps you put it in some other place than you thought." "I'm not in the habit of doing that with undeveloped film," replied the young operator. "If it was...

CHAPTER III. THE BIG OFFERWorking with all the skill he possessed, Tom had got the aeroplane in proper working order again. As has been said, the accident was a trivial one, and had he been alone, or with an experienced aviator, he would have thought little of it. Then, very likely, he would have volplaned to earth and made the repairs there. But he did not want to frighten Mary Nestor, so he fixed the control while gliding along, and made light of it. Thus his passenger was reassured. "Are we all... Long Stories - Post by : jenny1005 - Author : Victor Appleton - Read : 2953

CHAPTER XXIV. THE OLD COAT"Bang!" That was the soap-box cart hitting against a tree. "Tunk! Tunk!" Those were the soft sounds Russ and Laddie made as they were spilled out on the grass near the lumberman's cabin. "Bow-wow!" That was Zip barking at the cat. "Hiss-siss!" That was the cat making queer noises at Zip. "Wow-ow-ow-Yelp!" That was Zip howling because the cat scratched his nose. For that's just what the cat did. Zip rushed at her so fast that he banged the cart against a tree, and turned... Long Stories - Post by : driverx - Author : Laura Lee Hope - Read : 2869

CHAPTER IX. AFTER A SPYCurious as it may seem, Eradicate, the oldest and certainly not the most energetic of the party assembled in the experiment room, was the first to recover himself and arise. Tottering to his feet he gave one look at the testing block, whence the motor had torn itself. Then he looked at the prostrate figures around him, none of them hurt, but all stunned and very much startled. Then the gaze of Eradicate traveled to the hole in the roof. It was a gaping, ragged hole, for the... Long Stories - Post by : doyleweaver - Author : Victor Appleton - Read : 1074

Chapter X. A Strange ConversationMr. Wakefield Damon frequently came to the shops, for he was not alone very friendly with the Swifts, but he was greatly interested in Tom's new invention. "If it goes as good as what you did for my chicken run," he declared, chuckling, "bless my dampers! you'll beat all the electric locomotives in the market." "That is easy, perhaps," said Tom smiling. "There are not many in the market at the present time. But I don't know what mine will be. This is going to be some... Long Stories - Post by : philbooth - Author : Victor Appleton - Read : 1988

Will Warburton - Chapter 43
Warburton's mother was dead. The first effect upon him of the certainty that she could not recover from the unconsciousness in which he found her when summoned by Jane's telegram, was that of an acute remorse; it pierced him to the heart that she should have abandoned the home of her life-time, for the strangeness and discomfort of the new abode, and here have fallen, stricken by death --the cause of it, he himself, he so unworthy of the least sacrifice. He had loved her; but what assurance had he... Long Stories - Post by : midibidi - Author : George Gissing - Read : 2861

Seven English Cities - A Day At Doncaster And An Hour Out Of Durham
The Doncaster Races lured us from our hotel at York, on the first day, as I had dimly foreboded they would. In fact, if there had been no lure, I might have gone in search of temptation, for in a world where sins are apt to be ugly, a horse-race is so beautiful that if one loves beauty he can practise an aesthetic virtue by sinning in that sort. So I made myself a pretence of profit as well as pleasure, and in going to Doncaster I feigned the wish chiefly to compare its high event with that of Saratoga....

CHAPTER SEVEN. The breeze fell before we had entirely lost sight of the Pearl Islands, and, indeed, from aloft I could still make out the masts of the brigantine as she lay at anchor. It crossed my mind that Captain Myers might even now follow us; but I saw no indication of the vessel getting under weigh; still, daring ruffian as he appeared to be, he might be tempted to try and possess himself of the rich freight we carried. I did not mention the idea which had occurred to me to Harry, as there... Long Stories - Post by : 65587 - Author : William H. G. Kingston - Read : 646

He had come at last, Baalzebub, God of flies, and of what flies are bred from; to visit his self-blinded worshippers, and bestow on them his own Cross of the Legion of Dishonour. He had come suddenly, capriciously, sportively, as he sometimes comes; as he had come to Newcastle the summer before, while yet the rest of England was untouched. He had wandered all but harmless about... Long Stories - Post by : masterzinc - Author : Charles Kingsley - Read : 2412

She did not seem to breathe. So for full thirty seconds they faced one another, speechless, spell-bound, while through the awful silence the cry of a jackal sounded from afar, seeking its meat from God. Will was the first to move, feeling for his handkerchief mechanically and wiping his forehead. Also he tried to speak... Long Stories - Post by : horseman123 - Author : Ethel May Dell - Read : 825

"So you know something about Sir Philip Derval?" said I. "What sort of a man is he?" "Hateful!" cried Margrave; and then checking himself, burst out into his merry laugh. "Just like my exaggerations! I am not acquainted with anything to his prejudice. I came across his track once or twice in the East. Travellers are always apt to be jealous...

And a man named Gyrdir, on board the King's ship, dreamed a dream (239). He saw a great witch-wife standing on an isle of the Sulen, with a fork in one hand and a trough in the other (240). He...
