Opis - Pierwsze na świecie świadectwo ofiary zbrodni honorowej. Miała siedemnaście lat i zakochała się: zhańbiła rodzinę. Więc rodzina wydała na nią wyrok śmierci... Pokochała go pierwszą miłością. Myślała, że się z nią ożeni. Ale ukochany zniknął, a ona odkryła, że jest w ciąży. A w jej świecie to najcięższa zbrodnia... W zapomnianej przez Boga wiosce w Cisjordanii kobiety są warte mniej niż zwierzęta domowe. Tu mężczyzna jest panem życia i śmierci żony, córki, siostry. Brat może bezkarnie zabić siostrę, matka - córkę, kolejną bezużyteczną dziewczynkę, jaka się urodzi. Tu kobiecie odbiera się godność, a nawet życie zgodnie z odwiecznym obyczajem i uświęconą tradycją. A śmierć jest karą dla dziewczyny, która zhańbi rodzinę. Tak jak Souad. Wyrok wydaje jej ojciec. Szwagier dokonuje egzekucji. Oblewa Souad benzyną i podpala... SOUAD przeżyła - cudem, ale rodzina usiłowała zabić ją nawet w szpitalu. Na zawsze jednak pozostanie straszliwie okaleczona - na ciele i duszy. I wciąż musi się ukrywać; dopóki żyje, jej rodzinę okrywa hańba. Spalona żywcem, opublikowana pod pseudonimem szokująca opowieść o piekle, jakim było jej dzieciństwo i młodość, stała się międzynarodowym bestsellerem. Wydana w 37 w krajach książka przerywa tabu milczenia wobec istniejącej nadal w krajach muzułmańskich barbarzyńskiej tradycji. Nieludzkiego obyczaju, prawa mężczyzn, na mocy którego co najmniej pięć tysięcy kobiet pada co roku ofiarą zbrodni honorowej. Nazwa - Spalona Żywcem Wyd.

Colour in the Home Forgotten Books
Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna
Excerpt from Colour in the Home: With Notes on Architecture, Sculpture Painting, and Upon Decoration and Good Taste In literature the whole level of literary composition has been raised, and the work of the day labourer at the present time Often surpasses the work of those regarded as men Of genius in the days of Dr. Johnson or Professor Wilson. In art, on the contrary, the level has remained unaltered, and the gulf between the great men we have produced and the journeyman is indeed a wide one. As Sir J. Gardner Wilkinson said long ago: Taste, to be of use, must pervade all classes; and by this means graceful and beautiful objects for every-day use will come into general demand, and be generally made. They will also be obtained at moderate prices, and be placed within the reach Of all, instead Of being confined to the wealthy few who happen to be possessed of cultivated taste. Until good things are within the reach of all, and recognised by the majority, it is vain to hope for excellence in any country. It would be well if we realised these facts, for during the next twenty years there is promise of important developments in trade, and, if we would hold a foremost place, those engaged in the industrial arts will need a very much more thorough education than is provided at the present moment. Art and industry must be united. Countries of taste like Italy and France have long recognised the value of art as a national asset and have profited by their wisdom in giving it organised and persistent support. Has the reader ever considered how pitiful would have been the state of our art museums and galleries if it had not been for private benefactors like Sir John Soane, Sir Richard Wallace.

Tribute of Flowers to the Memory of Mother Forgotten Books
Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna
Excerpt from A Tribute of Flowers to the Memory of Mother: Containing Thoughts on Mother's Love, Mother's Death, Mother's Grave, Mother's Home Beyond and Echoes From the Heart's Dearest Memories After mother's death, years ago, we searched diligently for something to read -some book on the subjects presented here. We failed to find what we wished, and were thus led to gathering the "flowers of thought" which compose this volume. We find that every man and woman whom the world has called great, and whose words have been saved for their wisdom and goodness, all cherished with the utmost tenderness their memories of Mother, of happy innocent childhood, and of home. Their testimony is always interesting, often very beautiful; and they speak the common sentiment of the human race. The love of home is universal. There is no place like home. The ties of home should be, and usually are, the strongest and most sacred of any on earth. True, in the busy street, young people go rushing on until the work of the day is over, but when night comes on, the heart is apt to wander back to - "The Old Folks at Home."

New Education in Religion Forgotten Books
Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna
Excerpt from The New Education in Religion: With a Curriculum of Jewish Studies The traveler into a new country is safest with a guide. The guide must be familiar with the ground to be traversed, and through his knowledge and experience, must command full confidence. Our children as they enter the Religious School are to be guided into a strange and untried domain. The teacher is the guide to whom they look with unquestioning confidence in his knowledge and sincerity. To merit this trust and to fulfil it, is to have at once the greatest of responsibilities and the most joyous of privileges. That trust falls upon every parent when the mysterious gift of a new life - that of a child, comes into the home, for upon the influence of the parental example, training and instruction, more than upon aught else will depend the whole future of the child's character, conduct and soul culture. The first school from Patriarchal days was the home, and the home still is and will ever remain the earliest and most important school of child-training. "A child's mind," said one of the Rabbis, "is like a clean tablet on which nothing has been written." The first records on that tablet are made in the home and their impress is indelible. Therefore, every earnest parent is eager to find help to be a safe and wise teacher, friend and guide to his child. These lessons aim to place within the reach of parents the results of the study and experience of those who have gone over the ground in advance.

2000 Euro, Złota moneta bulionowa Wiedeńscy Filharmonicy (Wiener Philharmoniker 20 oz) Austrian Mint
Kategorie > Srebrne i złote monety Euro
Kraj: Austria Producent: Mennica Austrii Stan zachowania: UNC Nominał: 2.000 Euro Złoto: Au 999,9 / 1000 Stempel: BU Średnica: 74,00 mm Grubość: 8,3 mm Waga: 20 uncji trojańskich 24-karatowego złota (622 g) Rant: ząbkowany naprzemiennie Nakład: 6027 szt. Data emisji: 16.10.2009 r. W zestawie: złota moneta lokacyjna o wadze 20 uncji złota najwyższej próby, umieszczona w eleganckiej, drewnianej kasecie wraz z indywidualnie numerowanym certyfikatem autentyczności W dniu 10 października 1989 roku zostały wybite pierwsze austriackie, a zarazem europejskie monety lokacyjne, które nominowane były w Euro - Wiener Philharmoniker. Austrian Mint dotychczas wyemitowała monety o czterech nominałach Euro: 10, 25, 50 i 100 Euro. Aby uczcić jubileusz - 20 rocznicę "narodzin" prestiżowej monety odnoszącej międzynarodowy sukces, znanej na całym świecie ze swojego piękna, czystości i wysokiej jakości - austriacka mennica w dniu 16 października 2009 roku wyemitowała jedynie 6027 sztuk złotej monety Wiedeńscy Filharmonicy o pierwszym w historii numizmatyki nominale 2.000 Euro! Każda moneta wybita została z czystego - 24-karatowego złota o wadze 20 uncji trojańskich złota! Maksymalna wielkość emisji wynosi 3 x 2009 sztuk, co stanowi nawiązanie do trzech najważniejszych rynków: Europy, Japonii i USA, jak też odniesienie do roku emisji. To specjalne wydanie monety Wiener Philharmoniker umieszczone jest w eleganckiej, drewnianej kasecie wraz z indywidualnie numerowanym certyfikatem autentyczności. "Im gorsze czasy, tym mocniej świeci się złoto." "Kto ma złoto, zawsze ma pieniądze." Złoto to niekwestionowane uosobienie bogactwa, stabilności i bezpieczeństwa. Natomiast złote monety bulionowe to alternatywny sposób inwestowania i bezpieczny sposób dywersyfikacji portfela inwestycyjnego. W ciągu ostatnich 5 lat cena złota wzrosła ponad 100%! Monety bulionowe to monety z metali szlachetnych (głównie ze złota, srebra, platyny) bite w celach inwestycyjnych - lokaty kapitału. Monety te zwykle nie mają zadeklarowanej wartości, zamiast nominału podana jest zawartość kruszcu. Nakład zwykle nie jest ograniczony i zależy od popytu. Pierwszą monetą bulionową był wybity w 1970 roku w RPA Krugerrand. Złota moneta bulionowa "Filharmonicy Wiedeńscy" jest jedyną na świecie złotą monetą lokacyjną denominowaną w Euro! Elegancka, gustowna, wytworna, wykwintna - to słowa idealnie pasujące do opisania tej pięknej monety. Niezwykła moneta została wyemitowana na cześć słynnej orkiestry Wiener Philharmoniker - jednego z najlepszych zespołów muzycznych na świecie. Harmonijny projekt instrumentów muzycznych reprezentujących światowej sławy orkiestrę uwieczniono na rewersie. Natomiast awers monety przedstawia Wielkie Organy w Golden Hall w Wiedniu, w sali koncertowej w Musikverein. Wielu kolekcjonerów i inwestorów uznaje te monety za jedne z najpiękniejszych złotych monet na świecie. Do dnia 31 grudnia 2001 roku Filharmonicy byli denominowani w twardej walucie - austriackich Szylingach o nominałach: 2000, 1000, 500 i 200 Szylingów. Od 1 stycznia 2002 r. z uwagi na przejście Austrii na walutę Euro, monety te są bite z nominałami: 100, 50, 25 i 10 Euro. Dzięki temu, że te złote monety lokacyjne bite są w 4 rodzajach - o różnej wadze i wielkości, każdy może dopasować inwestycję do swoich potrzeb i możliwości. Ponadto z okazji jubileuszu monety Wiedeńscy Filharmonicy - w roku 2009 wybito monetę o nominale 2000 Euro i wadze 20 uncji czystego złota! Istotne jest to, że cena monet Wiedeńscy Filharmonicy jest bardzo konkurencyjna w stosunku do cen innych monet bulionowych, dzięki czemu monety z tej popularnej serii szybko stały się także obiektem pożądania inwestorów. Wiener Filharmoniker, czyli Wiedeńscy Filharmonicy to monety bulionowe (lokacyjne), które stanowią europejski odpowiednik amerykańskich "Buffalo", "Gold Eagles", czy południowoafrykańskich "Krugerandów". Bite są od lat w cenionej ze swej jakości i znajdującej uznanie na całym świecie Mennicy Austriackiej. Monety bite w tej mennicy to efekt długiej tradycji numizmatycznej, gdyż Austrian Mint to mennica o ponad 800-letnim doświadczeniu. Ogromną zaletą monet lokacyjnych Wiedeńscy Filharmonicy jest ich łatwe rozpoznawanie w kantorach na całym świecie, gdyż często są bardziej cenione niż sztabki lokacyjne z uwagi na dodatkowy walor kolekcjonerski, związany z projektem tych monet. Na awersie złotej monety uwieczniona została sala koncertowa Golden Hall w Wiedniu - miejsce corocznego koncertu z okazji Nowego Roku, a dokładnie wyselekcjonowane instrumenty muzyczne - słynne piszczałki organowe w Musikverein. Na monecie ukazano bardzo szczegółowy wizerunek Wielkiej Piszczałki Organowej w Filharmonii w Wiedniu, jednego z najbardziej złożonych instrumentów muzycznych na świecie. Na rewersie monety ukazano "bukiet" złożony z instrumentów orkiestry, niesamowicie oddając wszystkie ich szczegóły! Znajduje się tu dobrze skomponowany układ instrumentów używanych przez muzyków z Filharmonii Wiedeńskiej, w tym francuski róg, fagot, harfa, wiolonczela, dwoje skrzypiec i dwie altówki. Filharmonicy Wiedeńscy to jedna z najbardziej cenionych orkiestr Europy i jedna z najsłynniejszych orkiestr świata. Wiener Philharmoniker to także jedna z najstarszych orkiestr świata. Zespół istnieje od 1842 roku. Orkiestra słynie z konserwatyzmu - m.in. niechętnie zmienia tradycyjne miejsca swoich koncertów, a w jej składzie grają mężczyźni. Dlaczego warto kupić złotą monetę lokacyjną Wiedeńscy Filharmonicy: Złota moneta Wiedeńscy Filharmonicy jest bita w czystym złocie - próby Au 999,9! Jest to najlepiej sprzedająca się złota moneta inwestycyjna w Europie i Japonii. W latach: 1992, 1995, 1996 i 2000 była najlepiej sprzedającą się złotą monetą na świecie. Wśród tych złotych monet wyemitowano wszystkie cztery nominały Euro: 10, 25, 50 i 100 Euro. Z okazji jubileuszu monety Wiedeńscy Filharmonicy - w roku 2009 wybito monetę o nominale 2000 Euro i wadze 20 uncji! Cena złota stale wykazuje tendencje wzrostowe, nawet pomimo chwilowych wahań! Projekt monety jest piękny, wytworny i wyraźnie dopracowany w szczegółach! Moneta bita jest przez mennicę Austrian Mint - mennicę o ponad 800-letnim doświadczeniu. Ciekawostką jest ponadto to, że w 2004 roku z okazji 15 rocznicy emisji monety Filharmonicy - został wybity Wiedeński Filharmonik "Big Phil" o wadze 31 kg - druga pod względem wielkości złota moneta na świecie, która została wpisana do księgi Rekordów Guinnessa. Mennica Austrii - to ponad 800 lat doświadczenia: istniejąca od 1194 roku mennica z siedzibą w Wiedniu w Austrii, piękne monety - jako efekt długiej tradycji mincerskiej i numizmatycznej, gwarancje rządu dotyczące jakości, czystości i wagi złota, lider o ugruntowanej pozycji na rynku metali szlachetnych, uznany kontrahent światowych instytucji finansowych. Mennica Austrian Mint produkuje monety obiegowe, kolekcjonerskie i bulionowe. Działa na skalę międzynarodową, oferując szeroki wybór numizmatów najwyższej jakości. Każdego roku w Wiedniu bite są monety w łącznej ilości około 300 milionów sztuk. Austrian Mint posiada certyfikat ISO 9001-2000. Jest jedną z największych, najbardziej nowoczesnych i najbardziej wszechstronnych mennic na świecie. W 2003 roku jako pierwsza mennica na świecie wybiła monetę, w której wykorzystano mariaż tradycji z nowoczesnością, czyli połączenie srebra z niobem. Natomiast w 2008 roku wybiła pierwsze europejskie, srebrne monety lokacyjne o nominale 1,5 Euro z serii "Wiedeńscy Filharmonicy". Monety z Austrian Mint swój sukces zawdzięczają przede wszystkim innowacyjnym produktom, dopracowanym w szczegółach projektom, precyzji wykonania oraz ich doskonałej jakości, będącej wynikiem zarówno długiej tradycji numizmatycznej, jak też stałej, ścisłej kontroli końcowej jakości produktów. Ponad 800 lat doświadczenia w numizmatyce robi wrażenie - w 1994 roku mennica obchodziła 800. rocznicę działalności. Za czasów monarchii były tu bite korony, guldeny i dukaty, a następnie szylingi. Natomiast od 2002 r. menica bije Euro i Centy, niezależnie od tego, czy są one przeznaczone na zakupy, jako inwestycja lub jako monety kolekcjonerskie. Międzynarodowe uznanie w świecie numizmatyki przejawia się m. in. poprzez wybór i upoważnienie Austrian Mint jako jednej z pięciu mennic na świecie do wydawania urzędowych monet dla Międzynarodowego Komitetu Olimpijskiego na stulecie obchodów ruchu olimpijskiego. Wiener Philharmoniker - to najważniejsza orkiestra w Austrii i jedna spośród bardziej znaczących na świecie. Jej siedzibą jest znany na cały świat Musikverein. Członkowie tej orkiestry są dobierani spośród zespołu Wiener Staatsoper. Początki Wiener Philharmoniker sięgają 1842 roku. Jej dyrygentami w latach 1875-1933 byli między innymi: Hans Richter, Wilhelm Furtwängler oraz Clemens Krauss. Później orkiestra ta nie miała już stałego dyrygenta, lecz gościła różne światowe sławy: Richarda Straussa, Karla Böhma, Herberta von Karajana, Georga Soltiego, Ericha Kleibera, Carlosa Kleibera, Leonarda Bernsteina oraz Claudio Abbado. Die Wiener Philharmoniker obecnie uznawana jest za najlepszą orkiestrę w Europie, ponadto powszechnie uważana za jedną z najlepszych w świecie. Ich charakterystyczny dźwięk można przypisać do instrumentów i stylów gry, które są zasadniczo inne, niż te stosowane przez inne główne orkiestry. Repertuar Filharmoników Wiedeńskich jest jednym z największych spośród wszelkich orkiestr, choć najbardziej znanym i kojarzącym się z tą orkiestrą kompozytorem jest Strauss. Bilety są notorycznie trudne do zdobycia - trzynaście lat - tyle wynosi czasowa lista oczekujących na weekend sezonu biletowego (ale tylko sześć lat czekać trzeba na nocną subskrypcję weekendową). Wiener Musikverein - znana na całym świecie ze swojej akustyki sala koncertowa w Wiedniu, w której pierwszy koncert odbył się w 1870 roku. Jest uważana za jedną z trzech najlepszych sal symfonicznych na świecie, wraz z Boston's Symphony Hall i Concertgebouw w Amsterdamie. Największą salą koncertową w Musikverein jest Grosser Musikvereinsaal, bardziej znana po prostu jako Golden Hall (lub Goldener Saal). Sala ta posiada 1744 miejsc siedzących i dodatkowe miejsca stojące. Masywne organy z przodu Golden Hall, zostały zainstalowane przez austriacką firmę Rieger w 1907 roku. Sala ta słynie także z tego, że każdego roku, w dniu 1 stycznia odbywa się tutaj wspaniały koncert Wiedeńskich Filharmoników. 20 Ounce Gold Coin celebrates a 20 Year Success Story Twenty years ago in 1989 the Austrian State Mint passed from the Treasury into the ownership of the central bank. The mint was given the freedom to produce and sell products in accordance with the demands of the modern numismatic and investment markets. One of the very first innovations introduced by the new CEO, Paul Berger, was the production of a gold bullion coin for investment purposes: the Vienna Philharmonic. On 16th October this year a limited quantity of 6,027 Vienna Philharmonic coins, each weighing 20 ounces of fine gold, will go on sale in Europe, America and Japan. 20 ounces to commemorate 20 years! Why the odd number? The mint decided to offer 2009 coins (the date of the 20th anniversary) in its three major markets: in Europe, in America and in Japan. Investors still remember the 15 giant coins (each of 1,000 ounces) that celebrated the fifteenth anniversary in 2004, and that entered the Guinness Book of Records as the then largest gold coin in the world. All 15 giant coins were snapped up within days, and the excitement surrounding this special issue of a 20 ounce coin promises a similar market reaction. The new 20 ounce coin has a diameter of 74 mm and a thickness of 8.3 mm and is housed in a prestigious wooden and red velvet case. Pre-orders for this unique anniversary gold coin have already started pouring into the mint in Vienna. It promises to be a major success as indeed the past 20 years of the Austrian bullion programme have been. The Vienna Philharmonic Story The decision in 1989 to issue a gold bullion coin in the two weights of 1 ounce and

Power of Awareness Martino Fine Books
Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna
Reprint of 1952 first edition. Full facsimile of the original edition, not reproduced with Optical Recognition Software. Neville Lancelot Goddard was born in Barbados in 1905. He came to the United States to study drama at the age of seventeen and whilst touring with his dance company in England he developed an interest in metaphysics after striking up a conversation with a Scotsman. The Scotsman lent him a series of books on the powers of the mind. On his return he gave up the entertainment industry to devote his full attention to the study of spiritual and mystical matters. After traveling extensively throughout the United States, Neville eventually made his home in Los Angeles where, in the 1950s, he gave a series of talks on television and radio, and for many years lectured regularly to capacity audiences. In the 1960s and early 1970s, he confined most of his lectures to Los Angeles, New York, and San Francisco. In his early lectures and books, Neville dealt solely with what he called The Law, the technique of creating one's physical reality through imagining. It is this portion of his expression that most closely accords with the teachings of the New Thought movement. In 1959 he began to experience what he called The Promise. In the latter part of the 1960s and early 1970s Neville gave more emphasis to The Promise than to The Law. One could use imaginal power to change one's circumstances, he said, but it would be temporary, "...and will vanish like smoke." He went on to explain that The Promise superseded The Law, claiming "Oh, you can use it [The Law] to make a fortune, to become known in the world, all these things are done, but, your true purpose here is to fulfill Scripture." After subordinating The Law to The Promise, he became as eager to hear accounts by those who had experienced The Promise, and sharing such accounts, as he had earlier of those with The Law. The Power of Awareness attempts to demonstrate how to use our mind to realize our wishes. As such, it is an important part of the larger New Thought Movement, in which Neville holds a prominent place.
Abraham Lincoln Forgotten Books
Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna
Excerpt from Abraham Lincoln: The Politician and the Man But the same qualities which gave Abraham his genius for amusing himself and other people, for catching the light of the common eye and showing it shining back from his own, were sometimes a torment to him. Shining inward with their opposite face they Often made him solemn and sad, sent him sometimes around corners to avoid meeting anyone, or walking aimlessly along, talking to himself. It seemed to him at such times that no one ever liked him for the right reason, that nothing he ever did led him anywhere but to other states of poverty and helpless ness, never by any chance along the road toward preferment at the hands of those fellow-beings who loved to hear his juicy narratives of common life, his harangues, his jokes, but who never seemed able to take him seriously. And Abraham Lincoln had left the home of his unpromis ing father because he intended to be taken seriously. Thomas Lincoln, in spite of a second wife who was a fine rugged spirit and knew how to make something out of nothing, was always movmg about aimlessly. Sarah Bush Johnston had had a little property and a lot of the sense of how to care for a family when she married the widower of Nancy Hanks, but you would scarcely know that to look at the household of Lincoln, senior, now. Goose Nest Prairie, in Coles County, Illinois, where the old man was living, was no place for a young man of twenty - four who wanted to get on in the world, even if he could get on with Thomas Lincoln. Besides, it was the third place in which Thomas and Sarah had lived in three years. You could never make any thing of raw prairie earth if you kept on running about like stray cattle all the time.

Two Centuries of Soho Forgotten Books
Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna
Excerpt from Two Centuries of Soho: Its Institutions, Firms, and Amusements I have been honoured with an invitation to contribute a Preface to this book. It is a book written by many hands, among which my own cannot be reckoned. It is not a book compiled or made in the usual way, because the contributions are not written by hirelings, but by volunteers, and by those who write about the things they know by personal experience. My own claim to any voice in the matter is simply that, by the courtesy of Messrs. A. and C.Black, I have enjoyed the use of a room at No.4 Soho Square, looking out upon the garden in which I have passed three years of pleasantly laborious days. The Quarter known as Soho has attracted great attention of late years as one of the most interesting districts of London. The great City has many Quarters which, like Soho, seem to stand apart and separate by themselves: having their own history: their own associations: and their own peculiar points of interest. Kensington is such a Quarter: Islington is another: Whitechapel, another. In the case of Soho the interest is varied. It was once the home of Fashion: the number of distinguished persons who have lived in Soho from time to time is very great. The world of Fashion has long since left the place; but the solid and beautiful houses yet remain. The interest which attaches to the Soho of the present, apart from its associations, lies in the extraordinary amount of Religious, Philanthropic and Charitable work carried on within the limits of the district. There is also the interest, known to the fullest extent only by those who work in the place, that attaches to the vice and poverty of Soho, always present, against which these agencies are continually fighting. Little is said about the subject in these pages; it should be sufficient to know that the Clergy of all denominations never cease in their efforts to beat down and expel the profligacy of which Soho is the modern centre. I have mentioned the Historical Associations of the Quarter. About the Publisher Forgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.

Excerpt from The Story of the 275th Anniversary Celebration of the Founding of Southold Town: July 21-25, 1915 The history of an event cannot be written a few months after it takes place, but the story of it can be told at any time by anybody who chanced to be an eye-witness, and usually with a certain degree of interest. Such an account will not be accurate in every detail, possibly, but it will convey an impression that is honest at least, and that may not as a whole be far from the truth. The report that appeared in the Long Island Traveler the week following the Celebration, seemed to serve the purpose for which it was designed, viz., to portray to friends who were fardistant from the old town, and recall to those who were present, the four eventful days of the Celebration. It is therefore used as a basis of the story that will attempt, in lieu of history, to preserve a record of events that time may prove as epoch-making. "How did it all happen?" is the eternal question that must be answered first. Like many other large growths, it came from small plantings, and this is another fact that adds to the interest in the great Celebration of 1915. About one year before it took place, a few people were casting about in their troubled minds as to ways and means of raising funds for the Southold Library. A summer resident, Miss Mabel Stone, suggested a Pageant. What was a Pageant? That was an old word, but it had a new meaning. Anybody who desired to know what it meant, might go on a certain afternoon to the home of Mrs. Mary H. Dayton and then and there the modern mysteries of the word would be revealed by Miss Stone. About a dozen people listened to the description of a Pageant in which the speaker had been interested, with the result that not one of the listeners thought such a form of dramatic representation practicable for Southold.

Planting Trees in School Grounds Forgotten Books
Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna
Excerpt from Planting Trees in School Grounds: And the Celebration of Arbor Day The subject of this little pamphlet is one that is rapidly rising in favor with the business community and the political economists. From the attention that has been given it by the press, and the facts disseminated by societies like ours, the thoughtful, intelligent citizen who studies the causes of the decline in national resources - how countries once famous for their fertility of soil and salubrity of climate and dense population have become desolate wastes, unfitted for the habitation of man - how some countries have checked the rapid tendency to such desolation and ruin, and recovered their former prosperity - will see that the forests played the most important part in these causes; that their denudation was followed by the decline, and then the destruction of the national resources, while their replanting resulted in reclaiming, and in renewed production. The various and immediate uses to man of trees and their products have caused their rapid destruction, until the threatened dearth in this country is becoming alarming. This can be avoided only by convincing those who are most directly interested of the undeniable facts, and thereby inducing the people to better protect existing forests, and to take early steps to plant new ones for the benefit of themselves and of future generations. In a country like ours, where the people own the land and where the farmer has to look to the products of the farm for his income, it is a question with him of profit as between the wood-lot and the cleared field, whether the wood shall remain to supply the fuel, the fence and necessary timber for home purposes, or whether it shall give place to the corn-field, the wheat-field, or the meadow. With good tillable soil, the profit is, no doubt, largely in favor of the open field, especially as compared with our native forests from which the most valuable trees have been culled, and only wood of an inferior quality left. But the result would be quite different with a forest planted and cared for according to the principles of forestry as practiced in Germany and France, as conclusively appears in the following pages. There is, however, scarcely a farm of a hundred acres in Ohio and the originally wooded States, but that from 20 to 25 percent of its surface can be more profitably devoted to tree culture than to any thing else. In fact, there is much of the best farming country that is useless for crops, as the farmer knows, and yet is well adapted to the growth of trees.
