Daisy Miller

Description: 

She declared that the hotels were very good, when once you got used to their ways, and that Europe was perfectly sweet. She was not disappointed--not a bit. Perhaps it was because she had heard so much about it before. She had ever so many intimate friends that had been there ever so many times.

The Cyder-Maker's Instructor

Description: 

These wines are made of various kinds of fruit; of _Malaga's, Belvederes, Smyrna's, Raisins of the Sun_, &c. But the fruit that produces the best wines is black Smyrna's, their juice being the strongest, and the fruit clearest from stalks: for the stalks in Malaga's_ and _Belvideres are apt to give the wine a bad flavour.

The very general and keen interest in the revival of arts and crafts in America is a sign full of promise and pleasure to those who are working among the so-called minor arts.

Adventures in the Arts

Description:
