La Constantin

By: Alexandre Dumas

Chapter I. Before beginning our story, we must warn the reader that it will not be worth his while to make researches among contemporary or other records as to the personage whose name it bears. For in truth neither Marie Leroux, widow of Jacques Constantin, nor her accomplice, Claude Perregaud, was of sufficient importance to find a place on any list of great criminals, although it is certain that they were guilty of the crimes with which they were charged. It may seem ...

The Bible, Douay-Rheims, Book 34 : Joel the Challoner Revision

THE PROPHECY OF JOEL. JOEL, whose name, according to ST. JEROME, signifies THE LORD GOD: or, as others say, THE COMING DOWN OF GOD: prophesied about the same time in the kingdom of Judea, as OSEE did in the kingdom of Israel. He foretells under figure the great evils that were coming upon the people for their sins: earnestly exhorts them to repentance: and comforts them with the promise of a TEACHER OF JUSTICE, viz., CHRIST JESUS OUR LORD, and of the coming down of his holy SPIRIT.

Havoc

By: E. Phillips Oppenheim

CROWNED HEADS MEET. Bellamy, King?s Spy, and Dorward, journalist, known to fame in every English-speaking country, stood before the double window of their spacious sitting-room, looking down upon the thoroughfare beneath. Both men were laboring under a bitter sense of failure. Bellamy?s face was dark with forebodings; Dorward was irritated and nervous. Failure was a new thing to him - a thing which those behind the great journals which he represented understood less, eve...

La Divina Commedia Di Dante Alighieri Inferno

Nel mezzo del cammin di nostra vita mi ritrovai per una selva oscura, che la diritta via era smarrita. Ahi quanto a dir qual era e cosa dura esta selva selvaggia e aspra e forte che nel pensier rinova la paura! Tant? e amara che poco e piu morte; ma per trattar del ben ch?i? vi trovai, diro de l?altre cose ch?i? v?ho scorte. Io non so ben ridir com? i? v?intrai, tant? era pien di sonno a quel punto che la verace via abbandonai. Ma poi ch?i? fui al pie d?un colle giunto, ...

Pollyanna

By: Eleanor Hodgman Porter

Miss Polly Harrington entered her kitchen a little hurriedly this June morning. Miss Polly did not usually make hurried movements; she specially prided herself on her repose of manner. But to-day she was hurrying?actually hurrying. Nancy, washing dishes at the sink, looked up in surprise. Nancy had been working in Miss Polly?s kitchen only two months, but already she knew that her mistress did not usually hurry.

Tom Swift and His Great Searchlight; Or, On the Border for Uncle Sam

By: Victor Appleton

Chapter I. A SCRAP OF PAPER. ?Tom, did you know Andy Foger was back in town?? ?Great Scott, no, I didn?t Ned! Not to stay, I hope.? ?I guess not. The old Foger homestead is closed up, though I did see a man working around it to-day as I came past. But he was a carpenter, making some repairs I think. No, I don?t believe Andy is here to stay.?

An Egyptian Princess, Vol. 9

By: Georg Ebers

Chapter XI. According to the law of Egypt, Zopyrus had deserved death. As soon as his friends heard this, they resolved to go to Sais and try to rescue him by stratagem. Syloson, who had friends there and could speak the Egyptian language well, offered to help them. Bartja and Darius disguised themselves so completely by dyeing their hair and eyebrows and wearing broad-brimmed felt-hats, that they could scarcely recognize each other. Theopompus provided them with ordinar...

Myths and Legends of Our Own Land (The Hudson and Its Hills)

By: Charles M. Skinner

Preface: It is unthinkingly said and often, that America is not old enough to have developed a legendary era, for such an era grows backward as a nation grows forward. No little of the charm of European travel is ascribed to the glamour that history and fable have flung around old churches, castles, and the favored haunts of tourists, and the Rhine and Hudson are frequently compared, to the prejudice of the latter, not because its scenery lacks in loveliness or grandeur,...

God's Good Man

By: Marie Corelli

And when whatever promise our existence yet holds for us, seems far enough away to inspire ambition, yet close enough to encourage fair dreams of fulfillment. To experience this glamour and witchery of the flowering-time of the year, one must, perforce, be in the country. For in the towns, the breath of Spring is foetid and feverish, it arouses sick longings and weary regrets, but scarcely any positive ecstasy. The close, stuffy streets, the swarming people, the high bui...

Murad the Unlucky and Other Tales

By: Maria Edgeworth

Introduction: Maria Edgeworth came of a lively family which had settled in Ireland in the latter part of the sixteenth century. Her father at the age of five-and-twenty inherited the family estates at Edgeworths-town in 1769. He had snatched an early marriage, which did not prove happy. He had a little son, whom he was educating upon the principles set forth in Rousseau?s ?Emile,? and a daughter Maria, who was born on the 1st of January, 1767. He was then living at Hare ...

The Writings of Abraham Lincoln

?That the President of the United States by and with the advice and consent of the Senate, shall have the authority to detail from the retired list of the navy for the command of squadrons and single ships such officers as he may believe that the good of the service requires to be thus placed in command; and such officers may, if upon the recommendation of the President of the United States they shall receive a vote of thanks of Congress for their services and gallantry ...

English Men of Letters : Coleridge

By: H. D. Traill

Prefatory Note: In a tolerably well-known passage in one of his essays De Quincey enumerates the multiform attainments and powers of Coleridge, and the corresponding varieties of demand made by them on any one who should aspire to become this many-sided man?s biographer. The description is slightly touched with the humorous hyperbole characteristic of its author; but it is in substance just, and I cannot but wish that it were possible, within the limits of a preface, to ...

Mother Goose in Prose

By: L. Frank Baum

Introduction: None of us, whether children or adults, needs an introduction to Mother Goose. Those things which are earliest impressed upon our minds cling to them most tenaciously The snatches sung in the nursery are never forgotten, nor are they ever recalled without bringing back with them myriads of slumbering feelings and half-forgotten images.

Mutual Aid

By: P. Kropotkin

Two aspects of animal life impressed me most during the journeys which I made in my youth in Eastern Siberia and Northern Manchuria. One of them was the extreme severity of the struggle for existence which most species of animals have to carry on against

The Subterranean Brotherhood

By: Julian Hawthorne

Preface: These chapters were begun the day after I got back to New York from the Atlanta penitentiary, and went on from day to day to the end. I did not know, at the start, what the thing would be like at the finish, and I made small effort to make it look shapely and smooth; but the inward impulse in me to write it, somehow, was irresistible, in spite of the other impulse to go off somewhere and rest and forget it all. But I felt that if it were not done then it might n...

Frederick Chopin as a Man and Musician

By: Frederick Niecks

Preface to the First Edition: While the novelist has absolute freedom to follow his artistic instinct and intelligence, the biographer is fettered by the subject-matter with which he proposes to deal. The former may hopefully pursue an ideal, the latter must rest satisfied with a compromise between the desirable and the necessary. No doubt, it is possible to thoroughly digest all the requisite material, and then present it in a perfect, beautiful form. But this can only ...

The Doings of Raffles Haw and Other Stories

By: Sir Arthur Conan Doyle

Robert McIntyre rose from the sketch upon which he had been working, and taking one of the lamps in his hand peered out into the darkness. The long skeleton limbs of the bare trees tossed and quivered dimly amid the whirling drift. His sister sat by the fire, her fancy-work in her lap, and looked up at her brothers profile which showed against the brilliant yellow light. It was a handsome face, young and fair and clear cut, with wavy brown hair combed backwards and rippl...
