The Burgess Bird Book for Children

By: Thornton W. Burgess

Preface: This book was written to supply a definite need. Its preparation was undertaken at the urgent request of booksellers and others who have felt the lack of a satisfactory medium of introduction to bird life for little children. As such, and in no sense whatever as a competitor with the many excellent books on this subject, but rather to supplement these, this volume has been written.

History of the Conflict between Religion and Science

By: John Draper

So wide-spread and so powerful is this secession, that it can neither be treated with contempt nor with punishment. It cannot be extinguished by derision, by vituperation, or by force. The time is rapidly approaching when it will give rise to serious poli

In the Fire of the Forge, Vol. 7

By: Georg Ebers

Chapter X. A few minutes later the sisters left the Town Hall. Their white Rieses were wound so closely about their faces that their features were completely hidden, but the thin material permitted them to see Herr Vorchtel, leaning upon the arm of the young burgomaster, Hans Nutzel, leave the Council chamber, where the other Honorables were still deliberating. Pointing to the old man, the city clerk told Els with a significant smile that Ursula Vorchtel was engaged to t...

Smith and the Pharaohs, And Other Tales

By: Henry H. H. Rider Haggard

AN OLD FRIEND. Now I, Allan Quatermain, come to the weirdest (with one or two exceptions perhaps) of all the experiences which it has amused me to employ my idle hours in recording here in a strange land, for after all England is strange to me. I grow elderly. I have, as I suppose, passed the period of enterprise and adventure and I should be well satisfied with the lot that Fate has given to my unworthy self.

Barbara Blomberg, Vol. 6

By: Georg Ebers

Chapter XXV. After this conversation the two men who, in different positions, stood nearest to the Emperor Charles, placed no obstacle in Barbara?s way. The third?the Bishop of Arras?also showed a friendly spirit toward the Emperor?s love affair. True, he had not been taken into his confidence, but he rarely failed to be present when Barbara sang with the boy choir, or alone, in the Golden Cross, before the monarch or distinguished guests.

Gulliver of Mars

By: Edwin L. Arnold

Chapter I. Dare I say it? Dare I say that I, a plain, prosaic lieutenant in the republican service have done the incredible things here set out for the love of a woman?for a chimera in female shape; for a pale, vapid ghost of woman-loveliness? At times I

The Choir Invisible

By: James Lane Allen

?O may I join the choir invisible Of those immortal dead who live again In minds made better by their presence?feed pure love, Beget the smiles that have no cruelty, Be the sweet presence of a good diffused And in diffusion evermore intense. So shall I join the choir invisible Whose music is the gladness of the world??

Youth : Its Education, Regimen, And Hygiene

By: G. Stanley Hall

I have often been asked to select and epitomize the practical and especially the pedagogical conclusions of my large volumes on Adolescence, published in 1904, in such form that they may be available at a minimum cost to parents, teachers, reading circles, normal schools, and college classes, by whom even the larger volumes have been often used. This, with the cooeperation of the publishers and with the valuable aid of Superintendent C.N. Kendall of Indianapolis, I have ...

Anthology of Massachusetts Poets

By: William Stanley Braithwaite

ONE MEMORY FROM SOCRATES. AFTER the song the love, and after the love the play, Flute girl and pretty boy blowing Bubbles of sparkling Wine into darkling Beards of a former austerity, stern even now, but Fast growing Foolish, with less of a stately Reserve that held them sedately. Oh Zeus, what a sight! With the wine dripping off it, The grin of an ass on a bald-pated prophet.

What Will He Do with It, Book 12

By: Edward Bulwer Lytton

Chapter I. The man of the world shows more indifference to the things and doctrines of the world than might be supposed.?but he vindicates his character, which might otherwise be jeopardised, by the adroitness with which, having resolved to roast chestnuts in the ashes of another man?s hearth, he handles them when hottest by the proxy of a?cat?s paw. In the letter which George told Waife he had received from his uncle, George had an excuse for the delicate and arduous mi...

Wilhelm Meisters Lehrjahre-Buch 1

By: Johann Wolfgang Von Goethe

Erstes Buch Erstes Kapitel Das Schauspiel dauerte sehr lange. Die alte Barbara trat einigemal ans Fenster und horchte, ob die Kutschen nicht rasseln wollten. Sie erwartete Marianen, ihre schone Gebieterin, die heute im Nachspiele, als junger Offizier gekleidet, das Publikum entzuckte, mit groberer Ungeduld als sonst, wenn sie ihr nur ein mabiges Abendessen vorzusetzen hatte; diesmal sollte sie mit einem Paket uberrascht werden, das Norberg, ein junger, reicher Kaufmann, ...

The Man against the Sky : A Book of Poems

By: Edwin Arlington Robinson

The man Flammonde, from God knows where. With firm address and foreign air. With news of nations in his talk. And something royal in his walk. With glint of iron in his eyes. But never doubt, nor yet surprise. Appeared, and stayed, and held his head. As one by kings accredited.

The Winning of Canada : A Chronicle of Wolf

By: William Wood

Wolfe was a soldier born. Many of his ancestors had stood ready to fight for king and country at a moment?s notice. His father fought under the great Duke of Marlborough in the war against France at the beginning of the eighteenth century. His grandfather, his great-grandfather, his only uncle, and his only brother were soldiers too. Nor has the martial spirit deserted the descendants of the Wolfes in the generation now alive. They are soldiers still. The present head of...

Anthology of Massachusetts Poets

By: William Stanley Braithwaite

With brackish gullies wandering in between, All this from the hill. And more: a clump of dwarfed and twisted cedars, Sentinels over the marsh, and bright with the sun A field of daises wandering in the wind As though a hidden serpent glided through, A broken wall, a new-plowed field, and then The dusty road and the abodes of men Surrounding the hill.
