The Flyers

Description: 

The Flyers is written by George Barr McCutcheon. A cold, thick drizzle, blown by a biting wind that sent chills to the marrow, marred the early spring night, and kept indoors the few hardy members who had haunted the clubhouse since the season's opening a week before. Not more than a dozen loyal devotees to the sports of the open air lounged about the big clubhouse.

The Flirt

Description: 

The Flirt is written by Booth Tarkington. Architectural transformations, as vital, staggered the returned native.

The Flight of the Shadow

Description: 

The Flight of the Shadow is written by George MacDonald. I am old, else, I think, I should not have the courage to tell the story I am going to tell.

Garthowen

Description: 

Garthowen is written by Allen Raine. It was a typical July day in a large seaport town of South Wales. There had been refreshing showers in the morning, giving place to a murky haze through which the late afternoon sun shone red and round. The small kitchen of No. 2 Bryn Street was insufferably hot, in spite of the wide-open door and window.

Garrick's Pupil

Description: 

Garrick's Pupil is written by Auguston Filon. The girl turned and assisted a more aged woman, leaning upon a crutch-headed cane, to descend. This lady wore the big straw bonnet and gray gown of the Quaker persuasion,--a rigidly simple costume, which occasionally is becoming to extreme youth, but rarely enhances maturer charms.

Garman and Worse

Description: 

Garman and Worse is written by Alexander Kielland. The matter was thus concluded, and Richard Garman was appointed lighthouse-keeper at Bratvold, either because of his gifts and attainments or by reason of a timely word to the authorities. The very sameness of his existence did the old cavalier good; the few duties he had, he performed with the greatest diligence and exactitude.

Gargantua and Pantagruel

Description: 

Gargantua and Pantagruel is written by Francisco Balagtas. The likeness of his person has undergone a similar metamorphosis. He has been credited with a full moon of a face, the rubicund nose of an incorrigible toper, and thick coarse lips always apart because always laughing. The picture would have surprised his friends no less than himself. There have been portraits painted of Rabelais.

Found at Blazing Star

Description: 

Found at Blazing Star is written by Bret Harte. The rain had only ceased with the gray streaks of morning at Blazing Star, and the settlement awoke to a moral sense of cleanliness, and the finding of forgotten knives, tin cups, and smaller camp utensils, where the heavy showers had washed away the debris and dust heaps before the cabin doors.
