La Vita Sul Pianeta Marte

By: Giovanni Virginio Schiaparelli

Excerpt: Nelle belle sere dell'autunno passato una grande stella rossa fu veduta per piu mesi brillare sull'orizzonte meridionale del cielo; era il pianeta Marte, che si accostava per qualche tempo alla Terra in una delle sue apparizioni, solite a ripetersi ad intervalli di 780 giorni. Nella schiera degli otto pianeti principali Marte occupa, per volume, il penultimo luogo; il solo Mercurio e piu piccolo di lui. Ma in certe posizioni, in cui egli ritorna ad intervalli di...

A Profitable Weakness

By: George Robert Gissing, 1857-1903

Only to the few and the very fortunate of men is it granted to earn a livelihood by the exertion of their best powers. Men in general owe sustenance to the meaner of their faculties, often enough to the basest possibility that is in them; and, even so, find the effort no light one. As a singular instance of something between the two, of a man who found his profit in the cultivation of a mere amiable weakness, without fatigue, and without sense of degradation, take Lambert Wellaway.

The Bush Fire

By: Alan Sullivan

Night fell; there was no sign of rain: Day broke; the sweltering day again: Then, with the light, a scorching wind And a grey wall driving close behind, A thick grey wall that, mounting, spread Like a vast blanket overhead. It blotted out the breathless sky, Feifing the woods; where, deep and dry, Dead brush, dead leaves, dead branches lay Like tinder strewn. From far away Ibrough the invisible chaos came, A crackling monotone of flame. Fanned by the top-rid blast it swe...

Six Weeks at Heppenheim

By: Elizabeth Cleghorn Gaskell

After I left Oxford, I determined to spend some months in travel before settling down in life. My father had left me a few thousands, the income arising from which would be enough to provide for all the necessary requirements of a lawyer's education; such as lodgings in a quiet part of London, fees and payment to the distinguished barrister with whom I was to read; but there would be small surplus left over for luxuries or amusements; and as I was rather in debt on leavi...

Eothen

By: A.W. Kinglake

Excerpt: Chapter One. OVER THE BORDER AT Semlin I still was encompassed by the scenes and the sounds of familiar life; the din of a busy world still vexed and cheered me; the unveiled faces of women still shone in the light of day. Yet, whenever I chose to look southward, I saw the Ottoman?s fortress austere, and darkly impending high over the vale of the Danube historic Belgrade. I had come, as it were, to the end of this wheel?going Europe, and now my eyes would see th...

The Innocence of Father Brown

By: Chesterton, Gilbert Keith, 1874-1936

The Blue Cross Between the silver ribbon of morning and the green glittering ribbon of sea, the boat touched Harwich and let loose a swarm of folk like flies, among whom the man we must follow was by no means conspicuous -- nor wished to be. There was nothing notable about him, except a slight contrast between the holiday gaiety of his clothes and the official gravity of his face. His clothes included a slight, pale grey jacket, a white waistcoat, and a silver straw hat ...

A Hazard of New Fortunes : Vol. 1

By: William Dean Howells

Excerpt: BIBLIOGRAPHICAL The following story was the first fruit of my New York life when I began to live it after my quarter of a century in Cambridge and Boston, ending in 1889; and I used my own transition to the commercial metropolis in framing the experience which was wholly that of my supposititious literary adventurer. He was a character whom, with his wife, I have employed in some six or eight other stories, and whom I made as much the hero and heroine of ?Their ...

Grace Harlowe's Overland Riders on the Great American Desert

By: Jessie Graham Flower

Grace Harlowe, do you realize what an indulgent husband you have? demanded Elfreda Briggs severely. Why, of course I do, replied Grace, giving her companion a quick glance of inquiry. Why this sudden realization of the fact on your part! I was thinking of the really desperate journey we are about to undertake—the journey across the desert that lies just beyond the Cactus Range you can see over yonder, answered Miss Briggs, as she gazed out through the open window of thei...

The Last of the Ruthvens

By: Dinah Maria Mulock Craik

He's feared—wee Patrick! laughed William Ruthven. He thinks that walls have ears, and rivers tongues, and that every idle word I say will go with speed to the vain, withered, old hag in London or to daft King Jamie in Edinburgh! He thinks he shall yet see brother Willie's love-locks floating from the top of the Tolbooth beside those of winsome Aleck and noble John. The elder youth spoke in that bitter jesting tone used to hide keenest suffering; but the younger one, a sl...
