Unlike some other reproductions of classic texts (1) We have not used OCR(Optical Character Recognition), as this leads to bad quality books with introduced typos. (2) In books where there are images such as portraits, maps, sketches etc We have endeavoured to keep the quality of these images, so they represent accurately the original artefact. Although occasionally there may be certain imperfections with these old texts, we feel they deserve to be made available for future generations to enjoy.

Excerpt from The Old Maid, Vol. 4: And Other Stories It was an old and sordid building; the walls were crumbling to pieces, the grated, iron gates were eaten away by rust, the holes in the broken windows had been mended with Old newspapers, and the ancestral portraits which hung against the walls, showed that it was no tiller Of the soil, nor miserable laborer whose strength had gradually worn out and bent his back, who lived there. Great, knotty elm trees sheltered it, as if they had been a tall, green screen, and a large garden, full Of wild rose-trees and of straggling plants, as well as of sickly-looking vegetables, which sprang up half-with ered from the sandy soil, went down as far as the bank Of the river.

Excerpt from Called to the Colors and Other Stories I think Uncle Dennis could stand it better if it were not for this everlasting letterhead and the severely elegant sign on the house front, Dennis mcdermott, M. D Dennis Mc Dermott Lowrie, M. D. Not exactly efiu sive or romantic, that legend, but a whole family history is compressed there, plus the grand Old boy's cherished hopes as they say in the Woman's Page stories. He is game though, - has never breathed a syllable Of protest since he met you at Easter. He is, in fact, terribly religious in his own way, keeping still is part Of it.

Excerpt from The Chinago: And Other Stories The coral waxes, the palm grows, but man departs. Tahitian proverb. H cho did not understand French. He sat in the crowded court room, very weary and bored, listening to the un ceasing, explosive French that now one Official and now another uttered. It was just so much gabble to Ah Cho, and he marvelled at the stupidity of the Frenchmen who took so long to find out the murderer of Chung Ga, and who did not find him at all. The five hundred coolies on the plantation knew that Ah San had done the killing, and here was Ah San not even arrested. It was true that all the coolies had agreed secretly not to testify against one an other; but then, it was so simple, the French men should have been able to discover that Ah San was the man. They were very stupid, these Frenchmen. Ah Cho had done nothing of which to be afraid. He had had no hand in the killing. It was true he had been present at it, and Schemmer, the overseer on the plantation, had rushed into the barracks immediately afterward and caught him there, along with four or five others; but what of that Chung Ga had been stabbed only twice. It stood to reason that five or six men could not inflict two stab wounds. At the most, if a man had struck but once, only two men could have done it.
