The Teaching of Addaeus the Apostle

By: Addaeus Apostle

ADDAEUS said to him: Because thou hast thus believed, I lay my hand upon thee in the name of Him in whom thou hast thus believed. And at the very moment that he laid his hand upon him he was healed of the plague of the disease which he had for a long time. [3] And Abgar was astonished and marvelled, because, like as he had heard about Jesus, how He wrought and healed, so Addaeus also, without any medicine whatever, was healing in the name of Jesus. And Abdu also, son of ...

Religio Medici : Hydriotaphia : And the Letter to a Friend

By: Sir Thomas Browne

Introduction: SIR THOMAS BROWNE (whose works occupy so prominent a position in the literary history of the seventeenth century) is an author who is now little known and less read. This com? parative oblivion to which he has been consigned is the more remarkable, as, if for nothing else, his writings deserve to be studied as an example of the English language in what may be termed a transition state. The prose of the Elizabethan age was beginning to pass away and give pla...

The Safety Match

By: Anton Pavlovich Chekhov

Excerpt: On the morning of October 6, 1885, in the office of the Inspector of Police of the second division of S?? District, there appeared a respectably dressed young man, who announced that his master, Marcus Ivanovitch Klausoff, a retired officer of the Horse Guards, separated from his wife, had been murdered. While making this announcement the young man was white and terribly agitated. His hands trembled and his eyes were full of terror. ?Whom have I the honor of add...

Tales of New England

By: Sarah Orne Jewett

Excerpt: MISS TEMPY?S WATCHERS. The time of year was April; the place was a small farming town in New Hampshire, remote from any railroad. One by one the lights had been blown out in the scattered houses near Miss Tempy Dent?s; but as her neighbors took a last look out?of?doors, their eyes turned with instinctive curiosity toward the old house, where a lamp burned steadily. They gave a little sigh. ?Poor Miss Tempy!? said more than one bereft acquaintance; for the good w...

Three Men in a Boat

By: Jerome, Jerome Klapka, 1859-1927

THERE were four of us - George, and William Samuel Harris, and myself, and Montmorency. We were sitting in my room, smoking, and talking about how bad we were - bad from a medical point of view I mean, of course. We were all feeling seedy, and we were getting quite nervous about it. Harris said he felt such extraordinary fits of giddiness come over him at times, that he hardly knew what he was doing; and then George said that HE had fits of giddiness too, and hardly knew...

The Man Whom the Trees Loved

By: Algernon Henry Blackwood

Excerpt: HE PAINTED trees as by some special divining instinct of their essential qualities. He understood them. He knew why in an oak forest, for instance, each individual was utterly distinct from its fellows, and why no two beeches in the whole world were alike. People asked him down to paint a favourite lime or silver birch, for he caught the individuality of a tree as some catch the individuality of a horse. How he managed it was something of a puzzle, for he never ...

Punchinello, Volume 1, No. 3, April 16, 1870

By: Joshua Hutchinson

Excerpt: THE UMBRELLA. A VIEW OF THE SHADY SIDE OF LIFE. A ripe pippin falling upon the head of Sir ISAAC NEWTON (a clear case of hard cider on the brain) suggested the laws of gravitation. An elderly countryman passing my window this clear bright day, attended by his faithful umbrella, suggested the following reflections. The term Umbrella comes from the Latin umbra, a shade?the whole signifying ?keep shady.? This definition well describes the nature of the article; for...

The Barrier

By: Rex Beach

Excerpt: Chapter 1. THE LAST FRONTIER. Many men were in debt to the trader at Flambeau, and many counted him as a friend. The latter never reasoned why, except that he had done them favors, and in the North that counts for much. Perhaps they built likewise upon the fact that he was ever the same to all, and that, in days of plenty or in times of famine, his store was open to every man, and all received the same measure. Nor did he raise his prices when the boats were lat...

April Showers

By: Edith Wharton

It was a beautiful ending; Theodora had seen girls cry over last chapters that weren't half as pathetic. She laid her pen aside and read the words over, letting her voice linger on the fall of the sentence; then, drawing a deep breath, she wrote across the foot of the page the name by which she had decided to become known in literature — Gladys Glyn. Down-stairs the library clock struck two. Its muffled thump sounded like an admonitory knock against her bedroom floor. Tw...

The Crystal Sceptre

By: Philip Verrill Mighels

Excerpt: WE had lost all control of the wild balloon. It was driven ahead of the wind like a shred of rags, the car trailing behind at a fearful angle, for many of the ropes were broken and all the others were twisted in a hopeless tangle. Nearly all our ballast had fallen into the angry sea beneath us an hour after the storm first caught us in its whirl.

Miscellaneous Poems

By: Andrew Marvell

Courage my Soul, now learn to wield The weight of thine immortal Shield. Close on thy Head thy Helmet bright. Ballance thy Sword against the Fight. See where an Army, strong as fair, With silken Banners spreads the air. Now, if thou bee'st that thing Divine, In this day's Combat let it shine: And shew that Nature wants an Art To conquer one resolved Heart. Pleasure. Welcome the Creations Guest, Lord of Earth, and Heavens Heir. Lay aside that Warlike Crest, And of Nature'...

The Cherry Orchard

By: Anton Chekhov

A room which is still called the nursery. One of the doors leads into ANYA'S room. It is close on sunrise. It is May. The cherry-trees are in flower but it is chilly in the garden. There is an early frost. The windows of the room are shut. DUNYASHA comes in with a candle, and LOPAKHIN with a book in his hand.

Poems, 1799

By: Robert Southey

Excerpt: THE FIRST BOOK. Orleans was hush?d in sleep. Stretch?d on her couch The delegated Maiden lay: with toil Exhausted and sore anguish, soon she closed Her heavy eye?lids; not reposing then, For busy Phantasy, in other scenes Awakened. Whether that superior powers, By wise permission, prompt the midnight dream, Instructing so the passive [1] faculty; Or that the soul, escaped its fleshly clog, Flies free, and soars amid the invisible world, And all things ?are? that...

A Chapter in the Philosophy of Value

By: Georg Simmel

Excerpt: THE fact of economic exchange confers upon the value of things something super?individual. It detaches them from dissolution in the mere subjectivity of the agents, and causes them to determine each other reciprocally, since each exerts its economic function in the other. The practically effective value is conferred upon the object, not merely by its own desirability, but by the desirability of another object. Not merely the relationship to the receptive subject...

The Blue Flower

By: Henry Van Dyke

PREFACE: Sometimes short stories are brought together like parcels in a basket. Sometimes they grow together like blossoms on a bush. Then, of course, they really belong to one another, because they have the same life in them. The stories in this book have been growing together for a long time. It is at least ten years since the first of them, the story of The Other Wise Man, came to me; and all the others I knew quite well by heart a good while before I could find the t...
