Twenty-Two Goblins

By: Arthur W. Ryder

ADDRESS. / IN these disastrous times, when Nature bends / Beneath the weight of Providence's ends; / When trembling nations wait on despot rage, / And horrors more than human shake the age; / When every crime and every death prevails, / And every woe and every wound assails / The subject Earth; and when, on every side, / Flames the red flash, and flows th' ensanguined tide, / Creeps th' insidious drug, and speeds the poniard wide;— / Nature looks up, and, thro' the dark ...

Adventures in the Secret Service of the Postoffice Department

By: P.H. Woodward

Excerpt: There is a class of post?office thieves who make a specialty of rifling the registered letters that pass through their hands in transit on journeys of greater or less length. Some of them have managed operations very shrewdly, in the evident belief that they had discovered an infallible method for doing the work and at the same time escaping detection. Too late they generally learn by sad experience that no patents can be taken out for the protection of crime.

Vivian Grey, By the Earl of Beaconsfield

By: Benjamin Disraeli

Excerpt: MR. WADDINGTON OF WYCK I 1 Barbara wished she would come back. For the last hour Fanny Waddington had kept on passing in and out of the room through the open door into the garden, bringing in tulips, white, pink, and red tulips, for the flowered Lowestoft bowls, hovering over them, caressing them with her delicate butterfly fingers, humming some sort of song to herself.

The Mistletoe Bough

By: Anthony Trollope

This etext was produced by David Price, Let the boys have it if they like it, said Mrs. Garrow, pleading to her only daughter on behalf of her two sons. Pray don't, mamma, said Elizabeth Garrow. It only means romping. To me all that is detestable, and I am sure it is not the sort of thing that Miss Holmes would like. We always had it at Christmas when we were young. But, mamma, the world is so changed. The point in dispute was one very delicate in its nature, hardly to b...

When London Burned

By: G.A. Henty

Preface: We are accustomed to regard the Reign of Charles II. as one of the most inglorious periods of English History; but this was far from being the case. It is true that the extravagance and profligacy of the Court were carried to a point unknown before or since, forming,?by the indignation they excited among the people at large,?the main cause of the overthrow of the House of Stuart. But, on the other hand, the nation made extraordinary advances in commerce and weal...

Lazarus

By: Leonid Andreyev

Lazarus and The Gentleman from San Francisco, while fairly typical of Slavic literature, nevertheless contain few of the elements popularly associated with the work of contemporary Russian writers. They have no sex interest, no photographic descriptions of sordid conditions and no lugubrious philosophizing. These stories are not cheerful, yet their sadness is uplifting rather than depressing. They both contain what the Greek called katharsis in their tragedies, — that cl...

Shirley

By: Charlotte Bronte

Excerpt: PART ONE. Chapter 1. LEVITICAL. Of late years an abundant shower of curates has fallen upon the north of England: they lie very thick on the hills; every parish has one or more of them; they are young enough to be very active, and ought to be doing a great deal of good. But not of late years are we about to speak; we are going back to the beginning of this century: late years?present years are dusty, sunburnt, hot, arid; we will evade the noon, forget it in sies...

Sanctimonious Bond

By: Victor Speer

ONE of Murray's first acts after becoming identified with the Department of Justice at Toronto, was to turn back to the case of John C. Bond, of the Owen Sound gang, who disappeared the year before when Murray, at Sir Oliver Mowat's request, broke up the gang, and sent all but Bond to prison. Bond had sold a $1,500 forged mortgage in Toronto, and vanished. Murray saw at the outset it was important he should impress upon the mind of all the criminal classes in Canada that...

Return to Paris

Amongst the letters which were waiting for me was one from the comptroller-general, which advised me that twenty millions in Government securities had been placed in the hands of M. d'Afri, who was not to go beyond a loss of eight per cent.; and another letter from my good patron, M. de Bernis, telling me to do the best I could, and to be assured that the ambassador would be instructed to consent to whatever bargain might be made, provided the rate was not more disadvant...

Her First Appearance

By: Richard Harding Davis

It was at the end of the first act of the first night of The Sultana, and every member of the Lester Comic Opera Company, from Lester himself down to the wardrobe woman's son, who would have had to work if his mother lost her place, was sick with anxiety. There is perhaps only one other place as feverish as it is behind the scenes on the first night of a comic opera, and that is a newspaper office on the last night of a Presidential campaign, when the returns are being f...

Excerpts from Frame of Government of Pennsylvania

By: William Penn

When the great and wise God had made the world, of all his creatures it pleased him to choose man his deputy to rule it; and to fit him for so great a charge and trust, he did not only qualify him with skill and power but with integrity to use them justly. This native goodness was equally his honor and his happiness; and whilst he stood here, all went well; there was no need of coercive or compulsive means, the precept of divine love and truth, in his bosom, was the guid...

Of Human Bondage

By: W. Somerset Maugham

Excerpt: Chapter One. The day broke gray and dull. The clouds hung heavily, and there was a rawness in the air that suggested snow. A woman servant came into a room in which a child was sleeping and drew the curtains. She glanced mechanically at the house opposite, a stucco house with a portico, and went to the child?s bed. ?Wake up, Philip,? she said. She pulled down the bed?clothes, took him in her arms, and carried him downstairs. He was only half awake. ?Your mother wants you,? she said.

The Canonical Epistle

By: Peter, Bishop of Alexandria

BUT since the fourth passover of the persecution has arrived, it is sufficient, in the case of those who have been apprehended and thrown into prison, and who have sustained torments not to be borne, [3] and stripes intolerable, and many other dreadful afflictions, and afterwards have been betrayed by the frailty of the flesh, even though they were not at the first received On account of their grievous fall that followed yet because they contended sorely and resisted lon...
