The Dynamiter

By: Robert Louis Stevenson

Excerpt: Cole and Cox, police officers gentlemen,?In the volume now in your hands, the authors have touched upon that ugly devil of crime, with which it is your glory to have contended. It were a waste of ink to do so in a serious spirit. Let us dedicate our horror to acts of a more mingled strain, where crime preserves some features of nobility, and where reason and humanity can still relish the temptation. Horror, in this case, is due to Mr. Parnell: he sits before pos...

The Reverberator

By: Henry James

I guess my daughter's in here, the old man said, leading the way into the little salon de lecture. He was not of the most advanced age, but that is the way George Flack considered him, and indeed he looked older than he was. George Flack had found him sitting in the court of the hotel—he sat a great deal in the court of the hotel—and had gone up to him with characteristic directness and asked him for Miss Francina. Poor Mr. Dosson had with the greatest docility disposed ...

Beatrix

By: Honore De Balzac

Excerpt: I. A BRETON TOWN AND MANSION. France, especially in Brittany, still possesses certain towns completely outside of the movement which gives to the nineteenth century its peculiar characteristics. For lack of quick and regular communication with Paris, scarcely connected by wretched roads with the sub?prefecture, or the chief city of their own province, these towns regard the new civilization as a spectacle to be gazed at; it amazes them, but they never applaud it...

Report of the Committee on Alleged German Outrages : Appointed by ...

By: Viscount Bryce

Excerpt: Part 1. THE CONDUCT OF THE GERMAN TROOPS IN BELGIUM Although the neutrality of Belgium had been guaranteed by a treaty signed in 1839 to which France, Prussia, and Great Britain were parties, and although, apart altogether from any duties imposed by treaty, no belligerent nation has any right to claim a passage for its army across the territory of a neutral state, the position which Belgium held between the German Empire and France had obliged her to consider th...

Ten Years Later

By: Pere Alexandre Dumas

Introduction: In the months of March?July in 1844, in the magazine Le Siecle, the first portion of a story appeared, penned by the celebrated playwright Alexandre Dumas.

Ginx's Baby

By: Edward Jenkins

The name of the father of Ginx's Baby was Ginx. By a not unexceptional coincidence, its mother was Mrs. Ginx. The gender of Ginx's Baby was masculine. On the day when our hero was born, Mr. and Mrs. Ginx were living at Number Five, Rosemary Street, in the City of Westminster. The being then and there brought into the world was not the only human entity to which the title of Ginx's Baby was or had been appropriate. Ginx had been married to Betsy Hicks at St. John's, Westm...

The Hunchback of Notre Dame

By: Victor Hugo

A few years ago, while visiting or, rather, rummaging about Notre-Dame, the author of this book found, in an obscure nook of one of the towers, the following word, engraved by hand upon the wall: -- These Greek capitals, black with age, and quite deeply graven in the stone, with I know not what signs peculiar to Gothic caligraphy imprinted upon their forms and upon their attitudes, as though with the purpose of revealing that it had been a hand of the Middle Ages which h...

Queen Victoria

By: Lytton Strachey

Excerpt: On November 6, 1817, died the Princess Charlotte, only child of the Prince Regent, and heir to the crown of England. Her short life had hardly been a happy one. By nature impulsive, capricious, and vehement, she had always longed for liberty; and she had never possessed it. She had been brought up among violent family quarrels, had been early separated from her disreputable and eccentric mother, and handed over to the care of her disreputable and selfish father....

The Luminous Shield

By: Helena P. Blavatsky

We were a small and select party of light-hearted travellers. We had arrived at Constantinople a week before from Greece, and had devoted fourteen hours a day ever since to toiling up and down the steep heights of Pera, visiting bazaars, climbing to the tops of minarets and fighting our way through armies of hungry dogs, the traditional masters of the streets of Stamboul. Nomadic life is infectious, they say, and no civilization is strong enough to destroy the charm of u...

Le Phenomene Futur Un ciel pale, sur le monde qui finit de decrepitude, va peut-etre partir avec les nuages: les lambeaux de la pourpre usee des couchants deteignent dans une riviere dormant a l'horizon submerge de rayons et d'eau. Les arbres s'ennuient; et, sous leur feuillage blanchi (de la poussiere du temps, plutot que de celle des chemins), monte la maison en toile du Montreur de choses Passees: maint reverbere attend le crepuscule et ravive les visages d'une malheu...

Charlemont

By: William Gilmore Simms

The domestic legend which follows, is founded upon actual events of comparatively recent occurrence in the state of Kentucky. However strange the facts may appear in the sequel—however in conflict with what are usually supposed to be the sensibilities and characteristics of woman—they are yet unquestionably true; most of them having been conclusively established, by the best testimony, before a court of justice. Very terrible, indeed, was the tragedy to which they conduc...

Tiverton Tales

Excerpt: THE Crucifix Across the Mountains The imperial road to Italy goes from Munich across the Tyrol, through Innsbruck and Bozen to Verona, over the mountains. Here the great processions passed as the emperors went South, or came home again from rosy Italy to their own Germany.

The Merchant of Smyrna, By de Chamfort

By: Frank J. Morlock

Excerpt: HASSAN: (alone) They say that past evil is only a thought; it?s even better, it serves to make present happiness felt. It?s two years since I was a slave amongst the Christians, in Marseilles and it was a year ago today that I married the prettiest girl in Smyrna. That makes a difference. Although a good Muslim, I have only one wife. My neighbors have two, four, five, six and what for? The Law permits it?fortunately it doesn't order it; the French are right to h...

A Christmas-Eve Suit

By: Edward P. Roe

PREFACE: No race of men, scarcely an individual, is so devoid of intelligence as not to recognize power. Few gifts are more courted. Power is almost as varied as character, and the kind of power most desired or appreciated is a good measure of character. The pre-eminence furnished by thew and muscle is most generally recognized; but, as men reach levels above the animal, other qualities take the lead. It is seen that the immaterial spirit wins the greater triumphs,—that ...

The Suitors of Yvonne

By: Rafael Sabatini

IF it was incredibly gallant, it was no less incredibly I foolish of the Atrevida to have meddled with the Arabella, considering the Spaniard's inferior armament and the orders under which she sailed. The Arabella was that Cinco Llagas out of Cadiz of which Peter Blood had so gallantly possessed himself. He had so renamed her in honour of a lady in Barbadoes whose memory was ever to serve him as an inspiration and to set restraint upon his activities as a buccaneer. She ...

The Lottery

Excerpt: THE LOTTERY Chapter 1. Near Derby, on the way towards Darley?grove, there is a cottage which formerly belonged to one Maurice Robinson. The jessamine which now covers the porch was planted by Ellen, his wife: she was an industrious, prudent, young woman; liked by all her neighbours, because she was ready to assist and serve them, and the delight of her husband?s heart; for she was sweet?tempered, affectionate, constantly clean and neat, and made his house so che...

After the Storm : A Story of the Prairie

By: Elia Wilkinson Peattie

WHEN the men drove up for supper, they found the table unset, the fire out, and the woman tossing on the bed. There were six of the men, besides Tennant, the Englishman, who, by the bitter road the younger son must tread, had come to Nebraska and the sandhill country, ranching, and who was put over the rest of the men because he did not get drunk as often as they did. Sharpneck, the cattleman, was in town. So was his daughter, whose hungry cats darted about the disorderl...
