Excerpt from Sally Dows and Other Stories For two hours the greater part of an army corps had passed and repassed that way, but, coming or going, always with faces turned eagerly towards an open slope on the right which ran parallel to the lane. And yet nothing was to be seen there. For two hours a gray and bluish cloud, rent and shaken with explosion after explosion, but always closing and thickening after each discharge, was all that had met their eyes. Nevertheless, into this ominous cloud solid moving masses of men in gray or blue had that morning melted away, or emerged from it only as scattered fragments that crept, crawled, ran, or clung together in groups, to be followed, and overtaken in the rolling vapor. But for the last half hour the desolated track had stretched empty and deserted. While there was no cessation of the rattling, crackling, and detonations on the fateful slope beyond, it had still been silent.

Excerpt from The Hired Baby With Other Stories and Social Sketches It was a dark, desolate December night - a night that clung to the metropolis like a wet black shroud, - a night in which the heavy, low-hanging vapours melted every now and then into a slow reluctant rain, cold as icicle drops in a rock-cavern. People passed and repassed in the streets like ghosts in a bad dream; the yellow twinkling gaslight showed them at one moment rising out of the fog and then disappearing from view as though suddenly engulfed in a vaporous ebon sea. With muffled angry shrieks, the metropolitan trains deposited their shoals of shivering, coughing travellers at the several stations, where sleepy officials, rendered vicious by the inclement weather, snatched the tickets from their hands with offensive haste and roughness.

Excerpt from A Humble Romance, and Other Stories She was stooping over the great kitchen sink, washing the breakfast dishes. Under fostering circumstances, her slenderness of build might have resulted in delicacy or daintiness; now the harmony between strength and task had been repeatedly broken, and the result was ugliness. Her finger joints and wrist bones were knotty and out of proportion, her elbows, which her rolled-up sleeves dis played, were pointed and knobby, her shoulders bent, her feet spread beyond their natural bounds - from head to foot she was a little discordant note. She had a pale, peaked face, her scanty fair hair was strained tightly back, and twisted into a tiny knot, and her expression was at once passive and eager. There came a ringing knock at the kitchen door, and a face of another description, large, strong-featured, and assured, peered out of the pantry, which was over against the sink. "Who is it, Sally?" "I don' know, Mis' King." "Well, go to the door, can't you, an' not stan' thar gapin'. I can't; my hands are in the butter." Sally shook the dish-water off her red, sodden fingers, and shuffled to the door. About the Publisher Forgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.

Excerpt from Wee Willie Winkie and Other Stories, Vol. 1 of 2 Men are licensed to stumble, but a clever woman's mistake is outside the regular course of Nature and Providence; since all good people know that a woman is the only infallible thing in this world, except Government Paper of the '79 issue, bearing interest at four and a half percent. Yet. we have to remember that six consecutive days of rehearsing the leading part of The Fallen Angel, at the New Gaiety Theatre where the plaster is not yet properly dry. might have brought about an unhingement of spirits which, again, might have led to eccentricities. Mrs. Hauksbee came to 'The Foundry' to tiffin with Mrs. Mallowe, her one bosom friend, for she was in no sense 'a woman's woman.' And it was a woman's tiffin, the door shut to all the world; and they both talked chiffons, which is French for Mysteries. 'I've enjoyed an interval of sanity,' Mrs. Hauks bee announced, after tiffin was over and the two were comfortably settled in the little writing-room that opened out of Mrs. Mallowe's bedroom. 'My dear girl, what has he done?' said Mrs. Mallowe sweetly. It is noticeable that ladies of a certain age call each other 'dear girl' just as commissioners of twenty'eight years' standing address their equals in the Civil List as 'my boy .'

Gallegher, and Other Stories (Classic Reprint) Forgotten Books

Excerpt from Gallegher, and Other Stories One of the most attractive and inspiring things about Richard Harding Davis was the simple, almost matter-of-course way in which he put into practise his views of life - in which he acted, and in fact was, what he believed. With most of us, to have opinions as to what is the right thing to do is at the best to worry a good deal as to whether we are doing it; at the worst to be conscious of doubts as to whether it is a sufficient code, or perhaps whether it isn't beyond us. Davis seemed to have neither of these wasters of strength. He had certain simple, clean, manly convictions as to how a man should act; apparently quite without self-consciousness in this respect, whatever little mannerisms or points of pride he may have had in others - fewer than most men of his success and fastidiousness - he went ahead and did accordingly, untormented by any alternatives or casuistries, which for him did not seem to exist. He was so genuinely straightforward that he could not sophisticate even himself, as almost every man occasionally does under temptation. He, at least, never needed to be told "Go put your creed into your deed Nor speak with double tongue." About the Publisher Forgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.

Excerpt from Margery of Quether: And Other Stories This is written by my own hand, entirely unassisted. I am George Rosedhu, of Foggaton, in the parish of Lamerton, and in the county of Devon - whether to write myself Mister or Esquire, I do not know. My father was a yeoman, so was my grandfather, item my great-grandfather. But I notice that when anyone asks of me a favour, or writes me a begging letter, he addresses me as Esquire, whereas he who has no expectation of getting anything out of me invariably styles me Mister. I have held my acres for five hundred years - that is, my family the Rosedhus have, in direct lineal descent, always in the male line, and I intend, in like manner, to hand it on, neither impaired nor enlarged, to my own son, when I get one, which I am sure of, as the Rosedhus always have had male issue. But what with Nihilism, and Communism, and Tenant-right, and Agricultural Holdings legislation, threatened by Radicals and Socialists, there is no knowing where a man with ancestral acres stand, and, in the general topsy-turvyism into which we are plunging - God bless me!

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.

Pacific Nature Stories, Vol. 2 (Classic Reprint) Forgotten Books

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

Excerpt from Pacific Nature Stories, Vol. 2 The aim of this volume is to give specific information on typical objects of nature that illustrate the outdoor life of the Pacific Slope. The teacher will not find in the book all about fishes, but a study of "The Story of the Salmon" will furnish a method for the young ichthyologist. The other stories also tend to form a basis for systematic study. If we are to teach science in the schools, the children should be started right. The books that give vague and general information are really vicious. These stories are presented in this form to meet a demand and fill a place that existed. The writer made over one thousand visits, during the past few years, to grammar-grade schools, and took a keen interest in the nature, or science, work. It is with some degree of confidence, therefore, that he hopes the teachers will find this volume helpful in the middle grades. All knowledge should begin with the facts with which the child is familiar. The poppy, the nugget, the coyote, the bear, the quail, and the raisin are not strangers to our boys and girls. It remains for the teacher to train the children to study them on a scientific basis. I am indebted to David Starr Jordan, and A. C. McClurg A & Co., for permission to use "The Story of the Salmon." To T. S. Van Dyke, and Fords, Howard & Hulbert, for "The Quail" and "A Glance at Birds." To Edward Hyatt, of Riverside, for "The Study of Ants."

Excerpt from On Fortune's Road, Stories of Business Turning the corner hurriedly, Miss Grosvenor saw that the run had begun. A file of savings-bank depositors, already a rod long, reached from the open door of the bank, forming along the inner edge of the broad flagging under the supervision of two policemen, making an odd little human fringe to the base of the mountainous building that towered in glass and granite fourteen stories above them. Even as Miss Grosvenor passed, others came. They seemed to spring out of the flagging. There were working-men and a few dressed like clerks. There were women, many of them shabby and of a foreign aspect. One clutched a bank-book, and with the other hand led a girl of eight or nine years, who moved along with the slow procession docilely, staring with a child's wonder.

Excerpt from Dead Letters, and Other Narrative and Dramatic Pieces The success of "Prince" and the other poems intended for recitation contained in the volume to which it gave its name, has induced me to offer to the public a few more narrative poems. As in the case of the earlier collection, the actual stories of which the various poems treat have been derived from divers sources, though the treatment itself is, so far as I know, original. A version of "The Freak of Gwendolen" is to be found, I think, in one of Mark Twain's books; while the story contained in "The Sea-Bird's News" I heard from the lips of one who was resident in Australia at the time when the incident actually happened.

Human Geography Peoples and Countries, Vol. 1 (Classic Reprint) Forgotten Books

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

Excerpt from Human Geography Peoples and Countries, Vol. 1 In these primary grades they frequently include well-organized projects from the study of the home, the farm, the community or store, etc. The readers contain stories of Indian and Eskimo life, other selections contain material relating to the products, occupations, industries, and climatic conditions of our own country and foreign lands. With this rich background of information and concrete experience the child is adequately prepared to begin the study of Peoples and Countries. The position taken by many that the fourth grade child is entirely without preparation for the study of geography, and that he must necessarily begin with his immediate surroundings cannot be successfully sustained. Globe and Maps. - A globe is essential in teaching the shape, the relative size and the movements of the earth, and its relation to the sun and moon. No school can afford to be without one. Other equipment should include large colored physical and political wall maps of the United States, the world and each of the continents. Wall outline maps of continents and the blank black roller map are very helpful. Current News. - Current newspapers and magazines are filled with live interesting geographic material related to local, national and foreign questions. Encourage the pupils to read these publications and make contributions to the class. Train them to read publications, to observe the geographic material and report to the class. A typical daily paper of the Middle West recently examined contained in one issue eight articles on the first page, three on the second, two on the third, and a half dozen more scattered through the rest of the paper, every one of which contained geographic material, or required a knowledge of geography to be read intelligently. Every continent was included. Several of the articles would give excellent bases for problem study. Collections. - When studying a country or a large subject, the teacher should encourage the pupils to collect for class use as many specimens or articles relating to the subject as possible. Rocks, soils, minerals, woods, products, and so on may be assembled, put in boxes or bottles, or mounted on cardboard, properly labeled and made ready for teaching purposes. When studying the Indians of the Great North Woods, it stimulates interest to get together and use a collection of Indian relics, beads, arrow-points, basketry, etc. Sources from which such material can be obtained free or at small cost are suggested throughout the Manual. Begin collecting in advance of your needs. Assign to one child or a committee the task of securing and preparing for use the specimens needed for the study of wheat, to another the needs of corn, and so on. Pictures. - Pictures are entitled to special mention. In their several forms they are most valuable aids in teaching geography. They tell interesting stories, they assist in making ideas concrete, they give vivid impressions of distant places and people, they add a touch of reality to the printed page. Direct the attention of the child to the pictures of the text and teach him to read them as you do the printed page. They come from several sources, but most important is the text. They have been carefully chosen to illustrate the subject being taught. While it is highly desirable to use pictures from other sources, it is not likely that they will contribute nearly as much as those accompanying the subject matter of the textbook. Advantage should be taken of the child's natural desire to collect pictures. Make special assignments to individuals or committees for the collecting of pictures on given subjects, as lumber, the New England fisheries, cotton, western irrigation, etc. Pictures from magazines, advertisements, photographs and post cards should be

South in the Building of the Nation, Vol. 8 of 12 (Classic Reprint) Forgotten Books

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

Excerpt from The South in the Building of the Nation, Vol. 8 of 12 The selections from the writings of Southern novelists and story-writers found in this volume have an absolute value from the standpoint of pure fiction. In some cases short stories have been given in full, while the selections from novels have an inherent interest independent of the complete stories. They serve also as an interpretation of various phases of Southern life; for this reason, longer selections have been made from Kennedy's Swallow Barn and Baldwin's Flush Times in Alabama and Mississippi than would otherwise have been given. Furthermore, a certain unity may be seen in the volume in that it suggests the main tendencies of Southern fiction and the characteristics of some distinct groups of writers. If there should seem to be an undue proportion of ante-bellum fiction, it must be borne in mind that the earlier writings are inaccessible to the general reader, either because they are now out of print or are found only in expensive editions. A sufficient reason for the absence of some recent writings is that the publishers have in some cases refused the right to use selections, and in other cases have limited the publishers of this volume to very fragmentary selections. It is particularly to be regretted that for this reason selections could not be given from Richard Malcolm Johnston and Mr. James Lane Allen, though there is some compensation in the case of the latter in the admirable study by the late Professor John Bell Henneman.

Fairfield's Pioneer History of Lassen County California to 1870 (Classic Reprint) Forgotten Books

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

Excerpt from Fairfield's Pioneer History of Lassen County California to 1870 The following pages have been written for neither gain nor glory, but to preserve the names and deeds of the men and women who sowed the seeds of civilization in the mountain valleys of Lassen County, California. Though it is not on record that the women went on the war path, except in figurative way; yet they bore their part of the toil, hardships, and dangers incident to the settlement of a country cut off from the outside world during the winter months, and infested by savages and outlaws. The writer, them a boy about eleven years of age, crossed the plains in 1865, and came to Honey Lake Valley to live; and the most of his life since then has been spent here. As boy and man he was acquainted with the majority of the pioneers of the county, and many months of his life have been spent in listening to their tales of early days. In 1909, when this work was commenced, excepting the outline given in the "History of Plumas, Lassen, and Sierra Counties," there was no history of Lassen county; and there was no likelihood that any would ever be written. Very few of the early settlers of the county were alive, and if their stories were saved and anything like a complete history written, it had to be done at once. For these reasons the writer undertook the work. An attempt has been made to tell the truth in plain language, and no pains have been spared to obtain the truth. A great deal, perhaps the most, of what is given in the following pages in the way of Indian troubles, historical reminiscences, etc., was learned from the men who took an active part in the events narrated, or from the men and women who lived in the country at that time. As a matter of course, after a lapse of fifty years, or more, their stories are more or less conflicting in the minor details; but in nearly every case it has been possible to find some account of what they told in the publications of those days, and in that and in other ways their stories have been verified. In what is given as original, unless otherwise stated, the date and the principal facts can be depended upon. In 1882 Fariss and Smith published a work entitled "History of Plumas, Lassen, and Sierra Counties, California."
