Saunderson and the Dynamite

By: Louis Becke

Excerpt: Saunderson was one of those men who firmly believed that he knew everything, and exasperated people by telling them how to do things; and Denison, the super?cargo of the Palestine, hated him most fervently for the continual trouble he was giving to everyone, and also because he had brought a harmonium on board, and played dismal tunes on it every night and all day on Sundays. But, as Saunderson was one of the partners in the firm who owned the Palestine, Denison...

The Book of John Concerning the Falling Asleep of Mary

By: St. John Theologian

As the all-holy glorious mother of God and ever-virgin Mary, as was her wont, was going to the holy tomb of our Lord to burn incense, and bending her holy knees, she was importunate that Christ our God who had been born of her should return to her. And the Jews, seeing her lingering by the divine sepulchre, came to the chief priests, saying: Mary goes every day to the tomb. And the chief priests, having summoned the guards set by them not to allow any one to pray at the ...

The Yukon Trail

By: William Macleod Raine

Excerpt: Chapter 1. GOING. ?IN.? THE MIDNIGHT SUN had set, but in a crotch between two snow?peaks it had kindled a vast caldron from which rose a mist of jewels, garnet and turquoise, topaz and amethyst and opal, all swimming in a sea of molten gold. The glow of it still clung to the face of the broad Yukon, as a flush does to the soft, wrinkled cheek of a girl just roused from deep sleep. Except for a faint murkiness in the air it was still day. There was light enough f...

The Stories Mother Nature Told Her Children

By: Jane Andrews

You may think that Mother Nature, like the famous old woman who lived in the shoe, has so many children that she doesn't know what to do. But you will know better when you become acquainted with her, and learn how strong she is, and how active; how she can really be in fifty places at once, taking care of a sick tree, or a baby flower just born; and, at the same time, building underground palaces, guiding the steps of little travellers setting out on long journeys, and s...

Gaslight Sonatas

By: Fannie Hurst

Excerpt: I. BITTER?SWEET. Much of the tragical lore of the infant mortality, the malnutrition, and the five?in?a?room morality of the city?s poor is written in statistics, and the statistical path to the heart is more figurative than literal. It is difficult to write stylistically a per?annum report of 1,327 curvatures of the spine, whereas the poor specific little vertebra of Mamie O?Grady, daughter to Lou, your laundress, whose alcoholic husband once invaded your very ...

The Iron Rule

By: T.S. Arthur

Excerpt: Chapter 1. ANDREW HOWLAND belonged to that class of rigid moralists who can tolerate in others no wanderings from the right way. His children were forced into the straight jacket of external consistency from their earliest infancy; and if they deviated from the right line in which they were required to walk, punishment was sure to follow. A child loves his parent naturally. The latter may be harsh, and unreasonable; still the child will look up to him in weak de...

Under the Lion's Paw

By: Hamlin Garland

IT was the last of autumn and first day of winter coming together. All day long the ploughmen on their prairie farms had moved to and fro in their wide level fields through the falling snow, which melted as it fell, wetting them to the skin—all day, notwithstanding the frequent squalls of snow, the dripping, desolate clouds, and the muck of the furrows, black and tenacious as tar.

The Indeterminate Sentence : What Shall Be Done with the Criminal ...

By: Charles Dudley Warner

The problem of dealing with the criminal class seems insolvable, and it undoubtedly is with present methods. It has never been attempted on a fully scientific basis, with due regard to the protection of society and to the interests of the criminal. It is purely an economic and educational problem, and must rest upon the same principles that govern in any successful industry, or in education, and that we recognize in the conduct of life. That little progress has been made...
