The Pawns Count - Chapter XXXVI
Fischer, on leaving his unsuccessful dinner party, drove direct to the residence of Mr. Max H. Bookam, in Fifth Avenue. The butler who admitted him looked a little blank at his inquiry."Mr. Bookam was expected home yesterday, sir," he announced. "He has not arrived, however.""Has there been any telegram from him?--any news as to the cause of his non-return?" Fischer persisted."I believe that Mr. Kaye, his secretary, has some information, sir," the man admitted. "Perhaps you would like to see him."Fischer... Long Stories - Post by : jdmml - Author : E.

CHAPTER X. CRUNCH'EM CAN'T BE HADMr. Fenwick had intended to have come home round by Market Lavington, after having deposited Miss Lowther at the Westbury Station, with the view of making some inquiry respecting the gentleman with the hurt shoulder; but he had found the distance to be too great, and had abandoned the idea. After that there was not a day to spare till the middle of the next week; so that it was nearly a fortnight after the little scene at the corner of the Vicarage garden wall before...

It's ridic'lous," she said to Cynthia once when the girl brought the mail in from the barn the men folks kept it till they had put away their horses after driving over from Lovewell with it.

PART FIRST CHAPTER XI had noticed the vast and splendid club-houses in the best places in the city, and I had often wondered about their life, which seemed to me a blind groping towards our own, though only upon terms that forbade it to those who most needed it. The clubs here are not like our groups, the free association of sympathetic people, though one is a little more literary, or commercial, or scientific, or political than another; but the entrance to each is more or less jealously guarded;...

THE MISTRESS OF THE CATS CHAPTER IWhen they heard the call, "Puss, puss!" they scampered down the roof, leaped from the eaves, and vanished, one after the other, between the curtains of the open window. It was quite an ethnographic, so to speak, collection of cats; a panther-like French pussy from Dund, a Caucasian with long pointed ears, one from China with wavy silken fur and drooping ears. Then the window was closed, for the company were all assembled--four cats, two pug-dogs, and a... Long Stories - Post by : olecram - Author : Maurus Jokai - Read : 889

"Wait a minute!" gasped the young inventor. "I want to throw on the storage battery, and that will give us some light. Then we can see what We are doing." An instant later the whole ship was illuminated, and those aboard her felt calmer. Still the RED CLOUD continued to sink. "Can't we do something?" yelled Ned. "Start the...

Chapter II. Explanations"What in the world is that?" cried Mr. Job Titus, in alarm. Tom Swift did not answer. Instead he jumped up from his chair and ran toward the front door. Mr. Titus followed. They both saw a strange sight. Standing on the front porch, which he seemed to occupy completely, was a large horse, with a saddle twisted underneath him. The animal was looking about him as calmly as though he always made it a practice to come up on the front piazza when stopping at a house. Off to one...

Benton had turned hermit and withdrawn to the most isolated space the vessel provided. It was really not a deck at all--only a space between engine-room grating and tarpaulined lifeboats on what was properly the cabin roof. Here, removed from the burnished and ship-shape perfection of... Long Stories - Post by : swatsweb - Author : Charles Neville Buck - Read : 887

A member of our Parliament, I could then write to Ottilia, and tell her that I had not wasted time. And it was due to my father, I confessed, when he returned from his ball at dawn, that I should thank him for speaking to Graf Kesensky. 'Oh!' said he, 'that was our luck, Richie.

Still she must and would venture; and should anything be said, there at least was the portrait. For some weeks it had been all but finished, was never off its easel, and always showed a touch of wet paint somewhere--he kept the last of it lingering, ready to prove itself almost yet not altogether finished. What was to follow its absolute completion,... Long Stories - Post by : Earn2005 - Author : George Macdonald - Read : 573

In a few minutes the Frenchman entered, paused at the comptoir, as was his habit, to address a polite salutation to the well-dressed lady who there presided, nodded as usual to Armand Monnier, then glanced round, recognized Graham with...

The air was still, heavy, and parched with the breath of the Australasian sirocco. We passed through the meadow-lands, studded with slumbering flocks; we followed the branch of the creek, which was linked to its source in the mountains by many a trickling waterfall; we threaded the gloom of stunted, misshapen trees, gnarled with the stringy bark which...

CHAPTER IVThe reading of the play took place on the Monday morning following, and was an exceedingly formal and dignified function. The principal players came prepared to be politely interested, while some of the lesser minds were actually curious to taste the quality of the play as a piece of writing. As there was no greenroom in the Westervelt, the reading took place on the open stage, which was bleak and draughty. The company sat in a funereal semicircle, with the author, the star, and the manager... Long Stories - Post by : pGwtech - Author : Hamlin Garland - Read : 716

My soul!" she cried. Olive, sitting sewing by the window, was, naturally, somewhat startled. "Mercy on us, Rachel!" she exclaimed. "What IS it?"
