I soon was reduced to the most cruel state. The physician Thieiry, my old friend, came to see me,...

Excerpt: JEMMY STUBBINS, OR THE NAILER BOY. Before I left America in 1846, in order to gratify the wish that had long occupied my heart, of visiting the motherland, I formed for myself a plan of procedure to which I hoped to be able rigidly to adhere.

By: Nathaniel Hawthorne

THE GRAY CHAMPION: There was once a time when New England groaned under the actual pressure of heavier wrongs than those threatened ones which brought on the Revolution.

The Affair of the Avalanche Bicycle Tyre Co., Ltd

By: Arthur Morrison

Excerpt: CYCLE companies were in the market everywhere. Immense fortunes were being made in a few days and sometimes little fortunes were being lost to build them up. Mining shares were dull for a season, and any company with the word ?cycle? or ?tyre? in its title was certain to attract capital, no matter what its prospects were like in the eyes of the expert. All the old private cycle companies suddenly were offered to the public, and their proprietors, already rich me...

The Keeper's Gold

By: Maxwell Grant

Excerpt: Chapter 1. DEATH BRINGS DEATH The dreary?faced man was worried. He showed it by his shakiness. His oldish, withery countenance was pale; his eyes stared fearfully, as they looked from the window of the taxicab.
