There & Back - Chapter 41. Nature And Supernature
CHAPTER XLI. NATURE AND SUPERNATUREBut Richard soon began to recover both from the separation and from his disappointment in regard to his letter. He was satisfied that whatever might be the cause of her silence, it came from no fault in Barbara. Nothing ever shook his faith in her. And soon he found that he looked now upon the world with eyes from which a veil had been withdrawn. Barbara gone, mother Earth came nigh to comfort her child. He had always delighted in the beauty of the world--in what... Long Stories - Post by : Merry_V - Author : George Macdonald - Read : 2850

True Words For Brave Men - Introductory Note
"Yet was he courteous still to every wight, And loved them that did to armes incline." SPENSER. This little volume is selected from the unpublished sermons and addresses of Charles Kingsley by the request of a Colonel of Artillery, and with the sanction of an Army Chaplain of long experience, who knew the influence of his writings on soldiers, and who wish that that influence may live, though he is no longer here. The Lecture on Cortez was given at Aldershot Camp in 1858, and the Address to Brave... Nonfictions - Post by : eLogo - Author : Charles Kingsley - Read : 1141

BOOK XII CHAPTER XIIThree days after the evening thus spent by Gustave Rameau, Isaura was startled by a visit from M. de Mauleon. She had not seen him since the commencement of the siege, and she did not recognise him at first glance in his military uniform. "I trust you will pardon my intrusion, Mademoiselle," he said, in the low sweet voice habitual to him in his gentler moods, "but I thought it became me to announce to you the decease of one who, I fear, did not discharge with much kindness the...

All in the chambers of the metropolitan fortress exhibited the greatest confusion and dismay. The sentinels, it is true, were still at their posts, men-at-arms at the outworks, the bombards were loaded, the flag of Edward IV. still waved aloft from the battlements; but the officers of the fortress and the captains of its soldiery were, some assembled in the old hall, pale with...

PART IV CHAPTER XXXVII. THE PENALTY FOR SENTIMENTIt did not take Dr. Jim long to discover that some trouble or at the least some perplexity was weighing upon his young guest's mind. He also shrewdly remarked that it dated from the commencement of her visit at his house. No one else noticed it, but this was not surprising. There was always plenty to occupy the attention in the Ratcliffe household, and only Dr. Jim managed to keep a sharp eye upon every member thereof. Moreover, by a casual observer,...

The Water Of Life And Other Sermons - Sermon 5. Night And Day
SERMON V. NIGHT AND DAY(Preached at the Chapel Royal) ROMANS xiii. 12. The night is far spent, the day is at hand; let us therefore cast off the works of darkness, and let us put on the armour of light. Certain commentators would tell us, that St. Paul wrote these words in the expectation that the end of the world, and the second coming of Christ, were very near. The night was far spent, and the day of the Lord at hand. Salvation--deliverance from the destruction impending on the world, was nearer...

The Cavalier - Chapter 44. Charlotte In The Tents Of The Foe
CHAPTER XLIV. CHARLOTTE IN THE TENTS OF THE FOEFrom certain rank signs of bad management in the Federal camp one could easily guess that our circuit was designed to bring us around to its rear. That a colonel's tent--the one where the singers were--was not where the colonel's tent belonged was a trifle, but the slovenliness with which the forest borders of the camp were guarded was a graver matter. Evidently those troops were at least momentarily in unworthy hands, and I was so remarking to Kendall... Long Stories - Post by : Benjamin_Scott - Author : George Washington Cable - Read : 2481

The little man walked on tiptoe and wore an expression of such gloomy sympathy that Blake said: "Please don't look so blamed pious; it makes me hurt all over." Bernie's features lightened faintly; he smiled in a manner bordering upon the natural. "They wouldn't let me see you before. Lord! How you have frightened us!" "My nurse won't let me talk." Blake's eyes rested with puzzled interrogation... Long Stories - Post by : rvlawrence - Author : Rex Beach - Read : 1578

Answer! I am in this house to protect her against all such disturbances. What did you tell her?" "Nothing." Sullenness itself in the tone. "Nothing? and you were sent on an errand? Didn't you fulfil it?" "Yes." "And... Long Stories - Post by : 45005 - Author : Anna Katharine Green - Read : 706

CHAPTER XXIV. FOR LOVE'S SAKEAgain it was June, and over all the fields Nature's ancient miracle had been wrought. The trees by the snake fences stood in the full pride of their rich leafage, casting deep shadows on the growing grains. As of old, the Mill lane, with its velvet grassy banks, ran between snake fences, sweet-scented, cool, and shaded. Between the rails peeped the clover, red and white. Over the top rail nodded the rich berries of the dogwood, while the sturdy thorns held bravely aloft... Long Stories - Post by : angiecook - Author : Ralph Connor - Read : 732

CHAPTER VII. THE FIGHT IN THE CANONAs we fled along the valley, and in a few moments heard the sound of the Indians pursuing us, my mind was chiefly occupied with considerations of the quality which we denominate fear. I perceived that this purely occasional passion had a very direct bearing upon my own especial science of archaeology. I reflected that had I been engaged in building a city at the moment when that irritating flight of arrows fell among us----the sting of one of which I still felt...

CHAPTER XXA day had dawned on the Big Horn never to be forgotten by those who watched the conflict from the stockade, never to be recalled by those who went forth to fight. Broad daylight had come and the sun was peeping over the far horizon as strong arms bore the unconscious officer within the post, and the commander eagerly questioned the men who came with him. Their story was quickly told. They had fled before overpowering numbers of the Sioux the night before, had made their way through the...

Leaving Ingolby's house, she had seen men from the ranches and farms and mines beyond Lebanon driving or riding into the town, as though to a fair or fete-day. Word of anticipated troubles had sped through the countryside, and the innate curiosity of a race who greatly love a row brought in sensation-lovers. Some were skimming along in one-horse gigs,...

Why, no one ever done it alone. Low water, too, when every rock's got its chance at the canoe. But, my gracious, she is goin' to ride 'em!"

CHAPTER XEvery man, if you bring him to the right point, if you touch him in the corner where he is most sensitive he most lives, as it were; if you prick his nerves with a needle of suggestion where all his passions, ambitions and sentiments are at white heat, will readily throw away the whole game of life in some mad act out of harmony with all he ever did. It matters little whether the needle prick him by accident or blunder or design, he will burst all bounds, and establish again the old truth...

CHAPTER I. I GO TO PITTSBURGMcKnight is gradually taking over the criminal end of the business. I never liked it, and since the strange case of the man in lower ten, I have been a bit squeamish. Given a case like that you can build up a network of clues that absolutely incriminate three entirely different people, only one of whom can be guilty, and your faith in circumstantial evidence dies of overcrowding. I never see a shivering, white-faced wretch in the prisoners' dock that I do not hark back... Long Stories - Post by : patches417 - Author : Mary Roberts Rinehart - Read : 2094

CHAPTER XVII. A HINT OF SCANDALIn giving the gist of what happened at the inquest, I have only one excuse--to recall to the reader the events of the night of Arnold Armstrong's murder. Many things had occurred which were not brought out at the inquest and some things were told there that were new to me. Altogether, it was a gloomy affair, and the six men in the corner, who constituted the coroner's jury, were evidently the merest puppets in the hands of that all-powerful gentleman, the coroner....

CHAPTER IV. NUMBERS SEVEN AND NINEAfterwards, when I tried to recall our discovery of the body in lower ten, I found that my most vivid impression was not that made by the revelation of the opened curtain. I had an instantaneous picture of a slender blue-gowned girl who seemed to sense my words rather than hear them, of two small hands that clutched desperately at the seat beside them. The girl in the aisle stood, bent toward us, perplexity and alarm fighting in her face. With twitching hands the... Long Stories - Post by : patches417 - Author : Mary Roberts Rinehart - Read : 2355
