The Stickit Minister's Wooing  and Other Galloway Stories

by S. R. Crockett

Bracebridge Hall

by Washington Irving

The success of "Old Christmas" has suggested the re-publication of its sequel "Bracebridge Hall," illustrated by the same able pencil, but condensed so as to bring it within reasonable size and price.


Seventy Years Among Savages

Cadet Days: A Story of West Point

by Charles King

"Pops, there's no use talking; we've simply got to send you to the Point." "I'm sure I wish you could, Colonel. Father's tried every way he could think of, but cadetships don't go a-begging—out here, at least....


Bob Hampton of Placer

by Randall Parrish

It was not an uncommon tragedy of the West. If slightest chronicle of it survive, it must be discovered among the musty and nearly forgotten records of the Eighteenth Regiment of Infantry, yet it is extremely...


The Year Nine

by Anne Manning

IT was dusk; and the mountains were reverberating with loud thunder-claps, while the rain helped to swell a turbid river that swept through the valley, and past the door of a small wirth-haus or inn, known less...


Lay Down Your Arms

by Bertha von Suttner

WHEN I was requested by the Committee of the International Arbitration and Peace Association, of which I have the honour to be a Member, to undertake the translation of the novel entitled Die Waffen Nieder,...


The Grey Man

by S. R. Crockett

Well do I mind the first time that ever I was in the heartsome town of Ballantrae. My father seldom went thither, because it was a hold of the Bargany folk, and it argued therefore sounder sense to give it the...


The Fruit of the Tree

by Edith Wharton

IN the surgical ward of the Hope Hospital at Hanaford, a nurse was bending over a young man whose bandaged right hand and arm lay stretched along the bed. His head stirred uneasily, and slipping her arm behind...


The Light That Failed

by Rudyard Kipling

'What do you think she'd do if she caught us? We oughtn't to have it, you know,' said Maisie. 'Beat me, and lock you up in your bedroom,' Dick answered, without hesitation. 'Have you got the cartridges?' 'Yes;...


Paste Jewels

by John Kendrick Bangs

IT may interest the readers of this collection of tales, if there should be any such, to know that the incidents upon which the stories are based are unfortunately wholly truthful. They have one and all come...


Leila at Home

by Ann Fraser Tytler

IT was the intention of the writer of the following pages to have bid a last farewell to Leila, but some of her young readers have said “No;” and she feels too grateful for the kindness they have shown her,...


Kittyleen

by Sophie May

A pretty brown and white dove was walking up the steep roof of Dr. Gray's house just as the door-bell rang. Perhaps she heard the bell, for she stopped and pecked her wings, then flew down to the ground, and...


A Cure for Gravity

by Arthur Rosenfeld

Mercury Gant climbs aboard his vintage motorcycle and leaves behind his entire life. So, his journey begins taking him from one coast to the other and from the ghost of a woman without a conscience into the...


Boy Scouts on the Trail

by John Garth

Stout Harry Ritter gave a sudden chortle of glee and looked up from the copy of the “Long Point Snort” he was languidly perusing in the shade of some cedars behind Tent Four. “Say, fellows, have you seen...


Boots and Saddles

by Elizabeth Custer

One of the motives that have actuated me in recalling these simple annals of our daily life, has been to give a glimpse to civilians of garrison and camp life—about which they seem to have such a very imperfect...


Mother's Nursery Tales

by Katherine Pyle

These are not new fairy-tales, the ones in this book that has been newly made for you and placed in your hands. They are old fairy-tales gathered together, some from one country, and some from another. They...


The Altar of the Dead

by James Henry

The Altar of the Dead is a short story by Henry James, first published in his collection Terminations in 1895. A fable of literally life and death significance, the story explores how the protagonist tries to...
