The Store Boy - Chapter 27. The Telltale Ticket
CHAPTER XXVII. THE TELLTALE TICKETConrad still had the pawnbroker's ticket which he had received in return for the opera glasses, and did not quite know what to do with it. He didn't intend to redeem the glass, and if found in his possession, it would bring him under suspicion. Now that a detective had the matter in charge, it occurred to him that it would be well to have the ticket found in Ben's room. The two had rooms upon the same floor, and it would, therefore, be easy to slip into Ben's chamber... Long Stories - Post by : cholis - Author : Horatio Alger - Read : 3304

The Young Adventurer: Tom's Trip Across The Plain - Chapter 2. Tom Finds A Wallet
CHAPTER II. TOM FINDS A WALLETSince the time of which I am writing, over sixty years have passed, for it was in the year 1850 that Tom made up his mind to leave home and seek a fortune. The papers were full of the new gold discoveries in the new country which had recently been added to the great republic. Thousands were hurrying to the land of gold; men who had been unfortunate at home, or, though moderately well situated, were seized by the spirit of adventure. At considerable sacrifice many raised... Long Stories - Post by : Diego_Hernando - Author : Horatio Alger - Read : 791

Tom Swift In The Caves Of Ice - Chapter 22. Jumping The Claim
CHAPTER XXII. JUMPING THE CLAIMThere was a sneering look on Andy's face, and Mr. Foger, too, seemed delighted at having reached the valley of gold almost as soon as had our friends. Tom and the others looked at the means by which the bully had arrived. There were four sleds, each one drawn by seven dogs, and in charge of a dark-skinned native. On the two foremost sleds Andy and his father had ridden, while the other two evidently contained their supplies. For a moment Andy surveyed Tom's party and...

CHAPTER XVIII. A FIGHT WITH MUSK OXEN"Can I help you, Tom? What's to be done?" demanded Ned Newton, as he rushed to where his chum was yanking on various levers and gear wheels. "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...

Will Warburton - Chapter 15
"After all, there's something in presentiment." This was the first thought that took shape in Will's whirling mind. The second was, that he might rationally have foreseen disaster. All the points of strangeness which had struck him in Sherwood's behaviour came back now with such glaring significance that he accused himself of inconceivable limpness in having allowed things to go their way--above all in trusting Godfrey with the St. Neots cheque. On this moment of painful lucidity followed blind rage.... Long Stories - Post by : midibidi - Author : George Gissing - Read : 634

"Well, they're gone," said Amy, when they had walked three whole blocks in silence. "Goodness, why don't you tell us something we don't know?" snapped Mollie. "Please forgive me, Amy," she added the next moment, as Amy's eyes filled with tears. "I know I'm a beast, but I can't seem to help it this morning." "Only this morning?" asked Grace maliciously, and Mollie made a face... Long Stories - Post by : christophe - Author : Laura Lee Hope - Read : 3144

CHAPTER XXXVIII. "SHE WAS A WOMAN: I WAS A COWARD!"Again Douglas found himself face to face with a future emptied of all delight, only this time as a saner and an older man. The growth of his literary powers, an increased virility, following upon the greater freedom of his life, and the cessation of those haunting fears which had ever hung like a shadow over his earlier days in London, came to his aid. All that was best and strongest in his character was called into action. He faced his future like... Long Stories - Post by : erikhj - Author : E. Phillips Oppenheim - Read : 876

Chicot, how do you think I managed?" "Wonderfully, sire; and really, for a king who is not accustomed to ambassadors--" "It is my brother Henri who sends me such ambassadors." "How so, sire?" "If he did not incessantly persecute his poor sister, others would not dream of it. Do you believe that if the king of Spain had not heard of the...

She had not heard from him for nearly a week, and she had not written in the interval for the simple reason that she lacked his address. But every day she had expected him to pay his promised visit of farewell. It was hard work waiting for him. If she could have written, she would have done so days before in such a fashion as to cause him almost certainly to abandon...

The lawyer in London wrote to my mistress to ask her to come and stay for a little while with his wife; but she declined the invitation, being averse to facing company after what had happened to her.

Italian Hours - Two Old Houses And Three Young Women
There are times and places that come back yet again, but that, when the brooding tourist puts out his hand to them, meet it a little slowly, or even seem to recede a step, as if in slight fear of some liberty he may take. Surely they should know by this time that he is capable of taking none. He has his own way--he makes it all right. It now becomes just a part of the charming solicitation that it presents precisely a problem--that of giving the particular thing as much as possible without at the...

The cabins were deserted. Antonio and the Mexican woman were gone. The circumstances made Ellen wonder, but she was too tired and too sunken in spirit to think long about it or to care. She fed and watered her horse and left him in the corral. Then, supperless and without removing her clothes, she threw herself... Long Stories - Post by : add2it - Author : Zane Grey - Read : 952
