The Pursuit of the House-Boat

Description: 

The Pursuit of the House-Boat is written by John Kendrick Bangs. The House-boat of the Associated Shades, formerly located upon the River Styx, as the reader may possibly remember, had been torn from its moorings and navigated out into unknown seas by that vengeful pirate Captain Kidd, aided and abetted by some of the most ruffianly inhabitants of Hades.

The Problem of Thor Bridge

Description: 

The Problem of Thor Bridge is written by Arthur Conan Doyle. There is little to share, but we may discuss it when you have consumed the two hard-boiled eggs with which our new cook has favoured us. Their condition may not be unconnected with the copy of the Family Herald which I observed yesterday upon the hall-table.

The Postmaster's Daughter

Description: 

The Postmaster's Daughter is written by Louis Tracy. But John Menzies Grant seemed to have no eye for a scene that would have delighted a painter. He turned to the light, scrutinized so closely a strip of turf which ran close to the wall that he might have been searching for a lost diamond, and then peered through the lowermost left-hand pane of the small window into the room he had just quitted.

The Ponsonby Diamonds

Description: 

The Ponsonby Diamonds is written by L.T. Meade. I saw by the expression on her face that my words pleased her. I helped her to take the necessary steps to become a probationer at one of the large hospitals. She entered on her profession with enthusiasm--her time of training passed without hitch, and in due course I placed her on my own special staff of nurses.

The Poisoned Pen

Description: 

The Poisoned Pen is written by Arthur B. Reeve. The senator greeted I us gravely, and I could not but take it as a good omen when, in his pride of wealth and family and tradition, he laid bare everything to us, for the sake of Alma Willard. It was clear that in this family there was one word that stood above all others, "Duty."

The Phantom Motor

Description: 

The Phantom Motor is written by Jacques Futrelle. The crackling-chug came on, heedless of the cry. The auto was almost upon him before he leaped out of the road - a feat at which he was particularly expert- then it flashed by and plunged into The Trap. Baker was, at the instant, so busily engaged in getting out of the way that he couldn't read the number, but he was not disconcerted because he knew there was no escape from The Trap.

The Outdoor Chums at Cabin Point

Description: 

The Outdoor Chums at Cabin Point is written by Captain Quincy Allen. When Jerry Wallington gave expression to his gratitude after this fashion, two of his companions waved their hats as though he voiced their sentiments. One of these boys was Will Milton, and while he did not seem to be quite as vigorous as his chums, still his active life during the last two years had done much to build up his strength.

The Old Man in the Corner

Description: 

The Old Man in the Corner is written by Baroness Emmuska Orczy. Now the Fenchurch Street mystery, as that extraordinary crime had popularly been called, had puzzled--as Polly well knew--the brains of every thinking man and woman for the last twelve months. It had puzzled her not inconsiderably; she had been interested, fascinated.

The New Tenant

Description: 

The New Tenant is written by E. Phillips Oppenheim. The sunlight was everywhere. In the distance it lay upon the dark hillside, played upon the deep yellow gorse and purple heather of the moorland, and, further away still, flashed upon a long silver streak of the German Ocean.

The Nameless Man

Description: 

The Nameless Man is written by Rodrigues Ottolengui. There is nothing remarkable about it. Merely an old family relic. I value it more for that than anything else. But about my case, Mr. Barnes, how long do you think it will take to restore my identity to me? It is rather awkward to go about under a false name.
