By: Various

If building many houses could teach us to build them well, surely we ought to excel in this matter. Never was there such a house-building people. In other countries the laws interfere, or customs, traditions, and circumstances as strong as laws; either capital is wanting, or the possession of land, or there are already houses enough. If a man inherit a house, he is not likely to build another, nor if he inherit nothing but a place in an inevitable line of lifelong hand-t...

The Scottish Chiefs

By: Miss Jane Porter

Scotland: Bright was the summer of 1296. The war which had desolated Scotland was then at an end. Ambition seemed satiated; and the vanquished, after having passed under the yoke of their enemy, concluded they might wear their chains in peace. Such were the hopes of those Scottish noblemen who, early in the preceding spring, had signed the bond of submission to a ruthless conqueror, purchasing life at the price of all that makes life estimable-liberty and honor.

A Voyage to Abyssinia

By: Father Jerome Lobo

Father Lobo was nine years in Abyssinia, from the age of thirty-one to the age of forty, and this was the adventurous time of his life. The death of the Emperor Segued put an end to the protection that had given the devoted missionaries, in the midst of dangers, a precarious hold upon their work. When he and his comrades fell into the hands of the Turks at Massowah, his vigour of body and mind, his readiness of resource, and his fidelity, marked him out as the one to be ...

Scientific American Supplement 288 July 9, 1881

By: Various

A Chemist of merit, Mr. A. Muntz, who has already made himself known by important labors and by analytical researches of great precision, has been led to a very curious and totally unexpected discovery, on the subject of which he has kindly given us information in detail, which we place before our readers.[1] Mr. Muntz has discovered that arable soil, waters of the ocean and streams, and the atmosphere contain traces of alcohol; and that this compound, formed by the ferm...

The Shadow Line

By: Joseph Conrad

I ONLY the young have such moments. I don?t mean the very young. No. The very young have, properly speaking, no moments. It is the privilege of early youth to live in advance of its days in all the beautiful continuity of hope which knows no pauses and no introspection. One closes behind one the little gate of mere boyishness?and enters an enchanted garden. Its very shades glow with promise. Every turn of the path has its seduction. And it isn?t because it is an undiscov...

The Unexpurgated Case against Woman Suffrage

By: Almroth E. Wright

Preface: It has come to be believed that everything that has a bearing upon the concession of the suffrage to woman has already been brought forward. In reality, however, the influence of women has caused man to leave unsaid many things which he ought to have said. Especially in two respects has woman restricted the discussion.

Adventure of the Bruce-Partington Plans

By: Sir Arthur Conan Doyle

Mr. Sherlock Holmes. Mr. Sherlock Holmes, who was usually very late in the mornings, save upon those not infrequent occasions when he was up all night, was seated at the breakfast table. I stood upon the hearth-rug and picked up the stick which our visitor had left behind him the night before. It was a fine, thick piece of wood, bulbous-headed, of the sort which is known as a ?Penang lawyer.? Just under the head was a broad silver band nearly an inch across. ?To James Mo...

The Happy End

By: Joseph Hergesheimer

These stories have but one purpose?to give pleasure; and they have been made into a book at the requests of those I have fortunately pleased. It is, therefore, to such friends of my writing that they are addressed and dedicated. However, this is not an effort to avoid my responsibility: but to whom? Not to critics, not middlemen, nor the Academies of which I am so reprehensibly ignorant; not, certainly, to my neighbor. They brought me, in times of varying difficulty, foo...

Selections from Erasmus, Principally from His Epistles

By: Erasmus Roterodamus

Preface: The selections in this volume are taken mainly from the Letters of Erasmus. Latin was to him a living language; and the easy straightforwardness with which he addresses himself to what he has to say, whether in narrating the events of every-day life or in developing more serious themes, makes his works suitable reading for beginners. To the rapidity with which he invariably wrote is due a certain laxity, principally in the use of moods and tenses; and his spelli...

The Paying Guest

Chapter I. It was Mumford who saw the advertisement and made the suggestion. His wife gave him a startled look. ?But?you don?t mean that it?s necessary? Have we been extrav?? ?No, no! Nothing of the kind. It just occurred to me that some such arrangement might be pleasant for you. You must feel lonely, now and then, during the day, and as we have plenty of room??

Jewish History

By: S. M. Dubnow

Preface: The author of the present essay, S. M. Dubnow, occupies a well-nigh dominating position in Russian-Jewish literature as an historian and an acute critic. His investigations into the history of the Polish-Russian Jews, especially his achievements in the history of Chassidism, have been of fundamental importance in these departments. What raises Mr. Dubnow far above the status of the professional historian, and awakens the reader?s lively interest in him, is not s...

The Banks of Wye; A Poem. In Four Books

By: Robert Bloomfield

Preface: In the summer of 1807, a party of my good friends in Gloucestershire proposed to themselves a short excursion down the Wye, and through part of South Wales. While this plan was in agitation, the lines which I had composed on ?Shooter?s Hill,? during ill health, and inserted in my last volume, obtained their particular attention. A spirit of prediction, as well as sorrow, is there indulged; and it was now in the power of this happy party to falsify such predictio...

Crowded Out! and Other Sketches

By: Susie F. Harrison

Preface: I present these ?Sketches? in all proper fear and humility, to my Canadian public, hoping that the phases of colonial life they endeavor to portray will be recognized as not altogether unfamiliar. Some of them are true, others have been written through the medium of Fancy, which can find and inhabit as large a field in Canada as elsewhere; for, to my mind, there is no country, no town, no village, as there is no nation, no class of society, nor individual existe...

The Works of John Bunyan Volume 3

As I walked through the wilderness of this world, I lighted on a certain place, where was a den;[1] and I laid me down in that place to sleep: and as I slept, I dreamed a dream. I dreamed, and, behold, ?I saw a man clothed with rags, standing in ...
