Egypt (La Mort de Philae)

By: Pierre Loti

Excerpt: Chapter 1. A WINTER MIDNIGHT BEFORE THE GREAT SPHINX A night wondrously clear and of a colour unknown to our climate; a place of dreamlike aspect, fraught with mystery. The moon of a bright silver, which dazzles by its shining, illumines a world which surely is no longer ours; for it resembles in nothing what may be seen in other lands. A world in which everything is suffused with rosy color beneath the stars of midnight, and where granite symbols rise up, ghostlike and motionless.

Music and Other Poems

By: Henry Van Dyke

Excerpt: PRELUDE Daughter of Psyche, pledge of that last night When, pierced with pain and bitter?sweet delight, She knew her Love and saw her Lord depart, Then breathed her wonder and her woe forlorn Into a single cry, and thou wast born? Thou flower of rapture and thou fruit of grief; Invisible enchantress of the heart; Mistress of charms that bring relief To sorrow, and to joy impart A heavenly tone that keeps it undefiled, Thou art the child Of Amor, and by right div...

Tsunemasa

By: Seami

If it was possible for men, who exercise their reason, to believe, that the Divine Author of our existence intended a part of the human race to hold an absolute property in, and an unbounded power over others, marked out by his infinite goodness and wisdom, as the objects of a legal domination never rightfully resistible, however severe and oppressive, the inhabitants of these colonies might at least require from the Parliament of Great Britain some evidence that this dr...

The Critique of Judgement

By: Immanuel Kant

Excerpt: THE faculty of knowledge from a priori principles may be called pure reason, and the general investigation into its possibility and bounds the Critique of Pure Reason. This is permissible although ?pure reason,? as was the case with the same use of terms in our first work, is only intended to denote reason in its theoretical employment, and although there is no desire to bring under review its faculty as practical reason and its special principles as such.

The Golden Bough

By: James George Frazer

Preface: The PRIMARY aim of this book is to explain the remarkable rule which regulated the succession to the priesthood of Diana at Aricia. When I first set myself to solve the problem more than thirty years ago, I thought that the solution could be propounded very briefly, but I soon found that to render it probable or even intelligible it was necessary to discuss certain more general questions, some of which had hardly been broached before. In successive editions the ...

Wolverden Tower

By: Grant Allen

MAISIE LLEWELYN had never been asked to Wolverden before; therefore, she was not a little elated at Mrs. West's invitation. For Wolverden Hall, one of the loveliest Elizabethan manor-houses in the Weald of Kent, had been bought and fitted up in appropriate style (the phrase is the upholsterer's) by Colonel West, the famous millionaire from South Australia. The Colonel had lavished upon it untold wealth, fleeced from the backs of ten thousand sheep and an equal number of ...

The Pioneers; A Tale of the Western Wilderness

By: R.M. Ballantyne

Excerpt: CHAPTER ONE. SHOWS HOW IT BEGAN. ?The world is round,? said somebody in ancient times to somebody else. ?Not at all; it is flat ?flat as a pancake,? replied somebody else to somebody; ?and if you were to travel far enough you might get to the end of it and tumble over the edge, if so disposed.? Ever since the commencement of this early geographical controversy, men have been labouring with more or less energy and success to ascertain the form and character of th...

Tom Swift and His Motor-Cycle; Or, Fun and Adventures on the Road

By: Victor Appleton

THAT'S the way to do it! Whoop her up, Andy! Shove the spark lever over, and turn on more gasolene! We'll make a record this trip. Two lads in the tonneau of a touring car, that was whirling along a country road, leaned forward to speak to the one at the steering wheel. The latter was a red-haired youth, with somewhat squinty eyes, and not a very pleasant face, but his companions seemed to regard him with much favor. Perhaps it was because they were riding in his automob...

The Story of Germ Life

By: H.W. Conn

Excerpt: Since the first edition of this book was published the popular idea of bacteria to which attention was drawn in the original preface has undergone considerable modification. Experimental medicine has added constantly to the list of diseases caused by bacterial organisms, and the general public has been educated to an adequate conception of the importance of the germ as the chief agency in the transmission of disease, with corresponding advantage to the efficienc...

The Valiant Runaways

By: Gertrude Atherton

Excerpt: But Roldan saw none of these things. There was reason for his disquiet. News had arrived an hour before which had thrown his young mind into confusion: the soldiers were out for conscripts, and would in all probability arrive at the Rancho Los Palos Verdes that evening or the following morning. Roldan, like all the Californian youth, looked forward to the conscription with apprehension and disgust. Not that he was a coward. He could throw a bull as fearlessly as...

The Problems of Philosophy

By: Bertrand Russell

Preface: IN the following pages I have confined myself in the main to those problems of philosophy in regard to which I thought it possible to say something positive and constructive, since merely negative criticism seemed out of place. For this reason, theory of knowledge occupies a larger space than metaphysics in the present volume, and some topics much discussed by philosophers are treated very briefly, if at all. I have derived valuable assistance from unpublished w...

Julius Caesar's War Commentaries

By: W. A. Mcdevitte

[2.1]While these things were going forward in Spain, Caius Trebonius, Caesar's lieutenant, who had been left to conduct the assault of Massilia, began to raise a mound, vineae, and turrets against the town, on two sides; one of which was next the harbor and docks, the other on that part where there is a passage from Gaul and Spain to that sea which forces itself up the mouth of the Rhone. For Massilia is washed almost on three sides by the sea, the remaining fourth part ...

Legends of Vancouver

By: E. Pauline Johnson

Preface: I have been asked to write a preface to these Legends of Vancouver, which, in conjunction with the members of the Publication Sub?committee ? Mrs. Lefevre, Mr. L. W. Makovski and Mr. R. W. Douglas ? I have helped to put through the press. But scarcely any prefatory remarks are necessary. This book may well stand on its own merits. Still, it may be permissible to record one?s glad satisfaction that a poet has arisen to cast over the shoulders of our grey mountain...

Left Behind Or, Ten Days a Newsboy

By: James Otis

He was a stray boy, with a very strange story. The two ragged boys, one of whom had a bundle of papers under his arm, and the other the outfit of a boot-black slung over his shoulder, thought that at the best he was stretching the truth to an alarming degree, even though his manner appeared to bear out what he said. He had met these two boys at the corner of Cortlandt and West Streets, in New York City, and had stated his case to them, believing that they could tell him ...

Behemoth : A Legend of the Moundbuilders

By: Cornelius Mathews

Preface: The author solicits the attention of his countrymen to the following work. He ventures to do so for reasons which seem to him a sufficient justification of his present labors. His main design was to make those gigantic relics, which are found scattered throughout this country, subservient to the purposes of imagination. He has, therefore, dared to evoke this Mighty Creature from the earth and striven to endow it with life and motion. Simultaneous and co?eval wit...
