The Miller Of Old Church - Book 1 - Chapter 1. At Bottom's Ordinary
BOOK I CHAPTER I. AT BOTTOM'S ORDINARYIt was past four o'clock on a sunny October day, when a stranger, who had ridden over the "corduroy" road between Applegate and Old Church, dismounted near the cross-roads before the small public house known to its frequenters as Bottom's Ordinary. Standing where the three roads meet at the old turnpike-gate of the county, the square brick building, which had declined through several generations from a chapel into a tavern, had grown at last to resemble the smeared...

The Keeper Of The Door - Part 1 - Chapter 20. The Search
PART I CHAPTER XX. THE SEARCHFor the third time Nick looked at his watch. It was nearly one. He jumped to his feet with a grimace. "What on earth are those girls up to?" Rapidly he locked drawer after drawer of his writing-table, gathered up a sheaf of papers, and turned to go. The library at Redlands overlooked a wide lawn that led through shrubberies to the edge of the cliff, up the face of which had been cut a winding path. He paused a moment considering this. Would they return from the shore... Long Stories - Post by : Maruli - Author : Ethel May Dell - Read : 2216

CHAPTER XXXIX. A MATTER OF HOURS"Father--Father; can--you--can--you--forgive me?" The man on his knees raised his head. "Forgive you, my son? Forgive you? My dear boy, there has never been in my heart a thought but of love and sympathy. Pain there has been, I can't deny, but it has helped me to know what you have suffered. I understand it now, my boy. I understand it all, for I, too, have felt it. But when I first knew, even beneath all the hurt, I was glad--glad to know, I mean. It is a father's...

Her Father's Daughter - Chapter 10. Katy To The Rescue
CHAPTER X. Katy to the RescueLinda delivered Donald Whiting at his door with an armload of books and a bundle of miners' lettuce and then drove to her home in Lilac Valley--in the eye of the beholder on the floor-level macadam road; in her own eye she scarcely grazed it. The smooth, easy motion of the car, the softly purring engine were thrilling. The speed at which she was going was like having wings on her body. The mental stimulus she had experienced in concentrating her brain on Donald Whiting's... Long Stories - Post by : sumit - Author : Gene Stratton-porter - Read : 1766

The Money Master - Chapter 17. His Greatest Asset
CHAPTER XVII. HIS GREATEST ASSETJean Jacques did not go to the house of the widow of Palass Poucette "next day" as he had proposed: and she did not expect him. She had seen his flour-mill burned to the ground on the-evening when they met in the office of the Clerk of the evening Court, when Jean Jacques had learned that his Zoe had gone into farther and farther places away from him. Perhaps Virginie Poucette never had shed as many tears in any whole year of her life as she did that night, not excepting...

EPOCH THE FOURTH CHAPTER XXI. AN UNTOWARD MESSENGERA few days after this, Jessica, at her home in Boston,--in the room where she had promised her father to be George Gering's wife,--sat watching the sea. Its slow swinging music came up to her through the October air. Not far from her sat an old man, his hands clasping a chair-arm, a book in his lap, his chin sunk on his breast. The figure, drooping helplessly, had still a distinguished look, an air of honourable pride. Presently he raised his head,... Long Stories - Post by : kkcat - Author : Gilbert Parker - Read : 622

CHAPTER XI. A BLIZZARDMoya found in Goldbanks much to interest her. Its helter-skelter streets following the line of least resistance, its slapdash buildings, the scarred hillsides dotted with red shaft-houses beneath which straggled slate-colored dumps like long beards, were all indigenous to a life the manner of which she could only guess. Judged by her Bret Harte, the place ought to be picturesque. Perhaps it was, but Moya was given little chance to find out. At least it was interesting. Even...

CHAPTER XXVI"At the station before the last, when the conductor came to take the tickets, I took my baggage and went out on the car platform, and the consciousness that the climax was near at hand only added to my agitation. I was cold, my jaw trembled so that my teeth chattered. Mechanically I left the station with the crowd, I took a tchik, and I started. I looked at the few people passing in the streets and at the dvorniks. I read the signs, without thinking of anything. After going half a verst...

Chapter Twenty-Two. The WaterfallGlinda's castle was a long way from the mountains, but the Scarecrow began the journey cheerfully, since time was of no great importance in the Land of Oz and he had recently made the trip and knew the way. It never mattered much to Button-Bright where he was or what he was doing; the boy was content in being alive and having good companions to share his wanderings. As for Trot and Cap'n Bill, they now found themselves so comfortable and free from danger, in this... Long Stories - Post by : Truman - Author : L. Frank Baum - Read : 1315

The Monks Of Catalonia
TO you, my friends, allow me to detail, The feats of monks in Catalonia's vale, Where oft the holy fathers pow'rs displayed, And showed such charity to wife and maid, That o'er their minds sweet fascination reigned, And made them think, they Paradise had gained. SUCH characters oft preciously advise, And youthful easy female minds surprise, The beauteous FAIR encircle with their net, And, of the feeling heart, possession get: Work in the holy vineyard, you may guess, And, as our tale will show, with...

Life On The Mississippi - Chapter 26. Under Fire
TALK began to run upon the war now, for we were getting down into the upper edge of the former battle-stretch by this time. Columbus was just behind us, so there was a good deal said about the famous battle of Belmont. Several of the boat's officers had seen active service in the Mississippi war-fleet. I gathered that they found themselves sadly out of their element in that kind of business at first, but afterward got accustomed to it, reconciled to it, and more or less at home in it. One of our...

Felton had fallen; but there was still another step to be taken. He must be retained, or rather he must be left quite alone; and Milady but obscurely perceived the means which could lead to this result. Still more must be done. He must be made to speak, in order that he might be spoken to--for Milady very well knew that her greatest seduction was in her voice, which so skillfully ran over the whole gamut of tones from human speech to language celestial. Yet in spite of all this seduction Milady... Long Stories - Post by : igor888 - Author : Alexandre Dumas - Read : 2155

Under the snow, in the dark and the cold, A pale little sprout was humming;Sweetly it sang, 'neath the frozen mould, Of the beautiful days that were coming."How foolish your songs!" said a lump of clay; "What is there, I ask, to prove them?Just look at the walls between you and the day, Now, have you the strength to move them?"But under the ice and under the snow The pale little sprout kept singing,"I cannot tell how, but I know, I know, I know what the days are bringing."Birds, and blossoms,...

CHAPTER EIGHT1.Doctors, laying down the law in their usual confident way, tell usthat the vitality of the human body is at its lowest at two o'clockin the morning: and that it is then, as a consequence, that the mindis least able to contemplate the present with equanimity, the futurewith fortitude, and the past without regret. Every thinking man,however, knows that this is not so. The true zero hour, desolate,gloom-ridden, and specter-haunted, occurs immediately before dinnerwhile we are waiting...

Both sides of the Xingu were lined by the dense forest, in which the vegetation is so luxuriant that it must be a source of never ending wonder to those who look upon it for the first time. The river above made a sharp bend, shutting off the view so fully that from their position, it was impossible to tell how...

The World's Desire - PREFACE
PREFACEThe period in which the story of The World's Desire is cast, was a period when, as Miss Braddon remarks of the age of the Plantagenets, "anything might happen." Recent discoveries, mainly by Dr. Schliemann and Mr. Flinders Petrie, have shown that there really was much intercourse between Heroic Greece, the Greece of the Achaeans, and the Egypt of the Ramessids. This connection, rumoured of in Greek legends, is attested by Egyptian relics found in the graves of Mycenae, and by very ancient... Long Stories - Post by : origwmn - Author : H.
