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 I. TROUBLE"Daddy is late; isn't he, Ruth?" asked Alice DeVere of her sister, as she looked up from her sewing. "A little," answered the girl addressed, a tall, fair maid, with deep blue eyes, in the depths of which hidden meaning seemed to lie, awaiting discovery by someone. "A little!" exclaimed Alice, who was rather plump, and whose dark brown hair and eyes were in pleasing contrast to her sister's fairness. "Why, he's more than an hour late, and he's seldom that! He promised to be back... Long Stories - Post by : Cardo - Author : Laura Lee Hope - Read : 1586

CHAPTER XIV. THE HEART OF CYNTHIA ASHBURNSide by side stepped that oddly assorted pair along--the maiden whose soul was as pure and fresh as the breeze that blew upon them from the sea, and the man whose life years ago had been marred by a sorrow, the quest of whose forgetfulness had led him through the mire of untold sin; the girl upon the threshold of womanhood, her life all before her and seeming to her untainted mind a joyous, wholesome business; the man midway on his ill-starred career, his...

CHAPTER LXVI. PROGRESS AND CHANGEThings went on very quietly for a time. Arctura grew better, resumed her studies, and made excellent progress. She would have worked harder, but Donal would not let her. He hated forcing--even with the good will of the plant itself. He believed in a holy, unhasting growth. God's ways want God's time. Long after, people would sometimes say to him-- "That is very well in the abstract; but in these days of hurry a young fellow would that way be left ages behind!" "With...

These two men had naturally seen much of each other since Duplessis had returned from Bretagne and delivered Alain from the gripe of Louvier. Scarcely a day had passed but what Alain had been summoned to enter into the financier's plans for the aggrandisement of the Rochebriant estates, and delicately made to feel that he had become a partner in speculations,...

VOLUME II CHAPTER XXXII. WINGFOLD AND HELENWhen Helen lay down, she tried to sleep, but she could not even lie still. For all her preference of George and his counsel, and her hope in the view he took of Leopold's case, the mere knowledge that in the next room her cousin sat by her brother, made her anxious and restless. At first it was the bare feeling that they were together--the thing she had for so long taken such pains to prevent. Next came the fear lest Leopold should succeed in persuading...

CHAPTER ELEVEN. THIEVES RIDE BOLDLY Johnny Jewel heaved his weary bones off his bed and went stiffly to answer the 'phone. Reluctantly as well, for he had not yet succeeded in formulating an excuse for his absence that he dared try on old Sudden Selmer. Excuses had seemed so much less important when temptation was plucking at his sleeve that almost any reason had seemed good enough. But now when the bell was jingling at him, no excuse seemed worth the breath to utter it. So Johnny's face was doleful,... Long Stories - Post by : prospertogether - Author : B. M.

Chapter VI. An Unknown FriendWhen Yee Kee announced lunch, the artist, the novelist, and the dog were settled in their new home. In the afternoon, the painter spent an hour or two fussing over portfolios of old sketches, in his studio; while Conrad Lagrange and Czar lounged on the front porch. Once, the dog rose quietly, and, walking sedately to the edge of the porch toward the west, stood for some minutes gazing intently into the dark green mass of the orange grave. At last, as if concluding that... Long Stories - Post by : marlboro - Author : Harold Bell Wright - Read : 1897

CHAPTER XIIOn a foggy afternoon, toward midwinter, John Estridge strolled into the new Overseas Club, which, still being in process of incubation, occupied temporary quarters on Madison Avenue. Officers fresh from abroad and still in uniform predominated; tunics were gay with service and wound chevrons, citation cords, stars, crosses, strips of striped ribbon. There was every sort of head-gear to be seen there, too, from the jaunty overseas _bonnet de police_, piped in various colours, to the corded...

Her eyes were on the corral, from which her father was driving the dogies. "What's it to me?" she said with sullen resentment. "More'n you think. I've took a fancy to you. When I come back I'll talk business." The girl's eyes did not turn toward him, but the color flooded the dark cheeks. "With Father maybe. Not with me. You've got...

Now the power of the crafty old Malay extended from one end of this great river on which the long-house lay to the other, and though not all the tribes admitted allegiance to him, yet there were few who would not furnish him with men and boats...

Two tall, bearded white men moved cautiously through the jungle from their camp beside a wide river. They were Carl Jenssen and Sven Malbihn, but little altered in appearance since the day, years before, that they and their safari had been so badly frightened by Korak and Akut as the former sought haven with them.Every year had they come into the jungle to trade with the natives, or to rob them; to hunt and trap; or to guide other white men in the land they knew so well. Always since their experience... Long Stories - Post by : hlpunltd - Author : Edgar Rice Burroughs - Read : 3340

Books And Persons: Being Comments On A Past Epoch 1908-1911 - Ugliness In Fiction
(_9 May '08_)In the _Edinburgh Review there is a disquisition on "Ugliness in Fiction." Probably the author of it has read "Liza of Lambeth," and said Faugh! The article, peculiarly inept, is one of those outpourings which every generation of artists has to suffer with what tranquillity it can. According to the Reviewer, ugliness is specially rife "just now." It is always "just now." It was "just now" when George Eliot wrote "Adam Bede," when George Moore wrote "A Mummer's Wife," when Thomas Hardy... Nonfictions - Post by : chrischoi - Author : Arnold Bennett - Read : 671

I shall give her some of my Eau de Cologne."Miss Naylor's headaches after dancing were things on which to calculate.

It had been decided, as the reader has been told, that no direct advantage should be taken of that loud blast of accusation which had been heard throughout the town on the previous afternoon. There had not been sufficient time for inquiry as to the truth of that blast. If there were just ground for the things that had been said, Mr Melmotte would no doubt soon be...

CHAPTER VI. HELIODOREThat night there was feasting at the palace, and I, Olaf, now known as Michael, as a convert was one of the chief guests, so that for me there was no escape. I sat very silent, so silent that the Augusta frowned, though she was too far off to speak to me. The banquet came to an end at last and before midnight I was free to go, still without word from the Empress, who withdrew herself, as I thought in an ill-humour.I sought my bed, but in it knew little of sleep. I had found her... Long Stories - Post by : Truman - Author : H. Rider Haggard - Read : 776

CHAPTER IIIThe swaying, creaking, Boomville coach had at last reached the level ridge, and sank forward upon its springs with a sigh of relief and the slow precipitation of the red dust which had hung in clouds around it. The whole coach, inside and out, was covered with this impalpable powder; it had poured into the windows that gaped widely in the insufferable heat; it lay thick upon the novel read by the passenger who had for the third or fourth time during the ascent made a gutter of the half-opened...
