The Heavenly Twins

By: Madame Sarah Grand

Excerpt: PROEM. [Illustration: (musical notation); lyrics: He, watch?ing o?ver Is?ra?el, slumbers not, nor sleeps.] From the high Cathedral tower the solemn assurance floated forth to be a warning, or a promise, according to the mental state of those whose ears it filled; and the mind, familiar with the phrase, continued it involuntarily, carrying the running accompaniment, as well as the words and the melody, on to the end. After the last reverberation of the last strok...

Temporary Crusaders

By: Cecil Sommers

BY the time you begin, to sit up and take notice, little Margaret, people will be referring to the time when the war was on. You will not be old enough to remember how the men in khaki came back, and how in a few weeks they disappeared, and other men, strangely like them, but clothed in dull civvies and talking of shop office, took their place.

The Colour Line (The Golden Flaw)

By: P.G. Wodehouse

Excerpt: On the cheek of the stout man who reclined in the barber?s chair there still lingered a small patch of unreclaimed jungle. Lancelot Purvis removed this with his gleaming razor, and, stepping back, surveyed his handiwork with silent satisfaction; for he was a conscientious barber and took a pleasure in making a good job of it. He now produced a steaming towel from nowhere, dumped it on the stout man?s face, kneaded it awhile, whisked it off, applied witch?hazel, ...

Wilhelm Meister's Apprenticeshipq

By: J.W. Von Goethe

Excerpt: TO THE FIRST EDITION OF MEISTER?S APPRENTICESHIP: WHETHER for it be that the quantity of genius among ourselves and the French, and the number of works more lasting than brass produced by it, have of late been so considerable as to make us independent of additional supplies; or that, in our ancient aristocracy of intellect, we disdain to be assisted by the Germans, whom, by a species of second?sight, we have discovered, before knowing any thing about them, to be...

The Magic Shop

By: Herbert George Wells

I had seen the Magic Shop from afar several times; I had passed it once or twice, a shop window of alluring little objects, magic balls, magic hens, wonderful cones, ventriloquist dolls, the material of the basket trick, packs of cards that LOOKED all right, and all that sort of thing, but never had I thought of going in until one day, almost without warning, Gip hauled me by my finger right up to the window, and so conducted himself that there was nothing for it but to ...

Mr. Crewe's Career, V1

By: Winston S. Churchill

Excerpt: I may as well begin this story with Mr. Hilary Vane, more frequently addressed as the Honourable Hilary Vane, although it was the gentleman?s proud boast that he had never held an office in his life. He belonged to the Vanes of Camden Street, a beautiful village in the hills near Ripton, and was, in common with some other great men who had made a noise in New York and the nation, a graduate of Camden Wentworth Academy. But Mr. Vane, when he was at home, lived on...

The Screaming Skull

By: F. Marion Crawford

I have often heard it scream. No, I am not nervous, I am not imaginative, and I never believed in ghosts, unless that thing is one. Whatever it is, it hates me almost as much as it hated Luke Pratt, and it screams at me. If I were you, I would never tell ugly stories about ingenious ways of killing people, for you never can tell but that some one at the table may be tired of his or her nearest and dearest. I have always blamed myself for Mrs. Pratt's death, and I suppose...

Othello

By: Wilhelm Hauff

Excerpt: Das Theater war gedraengt voll; ein neuangeworbener Saenger gab den Don Juan. Das Parterre wogte, von oben gesehen, wie die unruhige See, und die Federn und Schleier der Damen tauchten wie schimmernde Fische aus den dunkeln Massen. Die Ranglogen waren reicher als je, denn mit dem Anfang der Wintersaison war eine kleine Trauer eingefallen, und heute zum erstenmal drangen wieder die schimmernden Farben der reichen Turbans, der wehenden Buesche, der bunten Schals a...

Natalie

By: Ferna Vale

Preface: In writing the following pages the author has spent pleasant hours, which perhaps might have been less profitably employed: if anything of interest be found among them, it is well,?and, should any be led to take up their Cross in meekness and humility, searching out the path that leads the wanderer home, it is indeed well.

Manacled

By: Stephen Crane

In the First Act there had been a farm scene, wherein real horses had drunk real water out of real buckets, afterward dragging a real wagon off stage left. The audience was consumed with admiration of this play, and the great Theatre Nouveau rang to its roof with the crowd's plaudits. The Second Act was now well advanced. The hero, cruelly victimised by his enemies, stood in prison garb, panting with rage, while two brutal wardens fastened real handcuffs on his wrists an...

The Golden Honeymoon

By: Ring W. Lardner

MOTHER says that when I start talking I never know when to stop. But I tell her the only time I get a chance is when she ain't around, so I have to make the most of it. I guess the fact is neither one of us would be welcome in a Quaker meeting, but as I tell Mother, what did God give us tongues for if He didn't want we should use them? Only she says He didn't give them to us to say the same thing over and over again, like I do, and repeat myself. But I say: Well, Mother,...

The Old Santa Fe Trail

By: Henry Inman

Preface: As we look into the open fire for our fancies, so we are apt to study the dim past for the wonderful and sublime, forgetful of the fact that the present is a constant romance, and that the happenings of to?day which we count of little importance are sure to startle somebody in the future, and engage the pen of the historian, philosopher, and poet. Accustomed as we are to think of the vast steppes of Russia and Siberia as alike strange and boundless, and to deal ...
