    A man of middle age, muffled up in an overcoat, got out of a Third Avenue car, just opposite a small drug shop. Quickly glancing up and down the street with a furtive look, as if he wished to avoid recognition from any passerby who might know him, he entered the shop. It was a... Read More
    or, The Young Boatman of Pine Point
    "Grit!" "Well, mother, what is it?" The speaker was a sturdy, thick-set boy of fifteen, rather short for his age, but strongly made. His eyes were clear and bright, his expression was pleasant, and his face attractive, but even a superficial observer could read in it unusual firmness and strength of will. He was evidently...

    "Here, you Jed!" Jed paused in his work with his axe suspended above him, for he was splitting wood. He turned his face toward the side door at which stood a woman, thin and sharp-visaged, and asked: "Well, what's wanted?" "None of your impudence, you young rascal! Come here, I say!" Jed laid down the... Read More

    A Social Mystery
    In reading Miss Harraden's charming idyl "Ships That Pass in the Night," it occurred to me that if there were Disagreeable Men there are also Disagreeable Women. Hence this story. "If I live till next July, I shall be twenty-nine years old," simpered the young widow, and she looked around the table, as if to... Read More
    “I wish I could send you to college, Guy,” said Mr. Fenwick, as they sat in the library, reading by the soft light of a student lamp. The speaker was the Rev. Mr. Fenwick, the pastor of a church in Bayport, a few miles from New Bedford, Massachusetts. “I don’t think I care much about... Read More
    "Evening Telegram! Only one left. Going for two cents, and worth double the money. Buy one, sir?" Attracted by the business-like tone of the newsboy, a gentleman paused as he was ascending the steps of the Astor House, and said, with a smile: "You seem to appreciate the Telegram, my boy. Any important news this... Read More
    A Story of California
    “Mother, this is an important day for me,” said Grant Colburn, as he entered the kitchen with an armful of wood, and deposited it in the box behind the stove.

    or, The Young Ranchman of the Missouri
    "Harness up the colt, Clip; I'm going to the village." "All right, massa!" "What makes you call me massa? One would think I were a slave-owner." "Can't help it, massa. There I done forgot it agin," said Clip, showing his white teeth—preturnaturally white they showed in contrast with his coal-black skin. "You see I used... Read More

    TO MY FRIEND AND COLLEGE CLASSMATE, JUDGE ADDISON BROWN, OF NEW YORK, THIS VOLUME IS CORDIALLY INSCRIBED.

    "Strong and Steady" is the third volume of the "Luck and Pluck Series." Though the story is quite distinct from its predecessors, it is intended to illustrate the same general principle.

    To AMOS AND O. AUGUSTA CHENEY, This Volume IS DEDICATED BY THEIR AFFECTIONATE BROTHER.

The six volumes... Read More

    Not many minutes walk from Broadway, situated on one of the cross streets intersecting the great thoroughfare, is a large building not especially inviting in its aspect, used as a lodging and boarding-house. It is very far from fashionable, since, with hardly an exception, those who avail themselves of its accommodations belong to the great... Read More
