Gambolling with Galatea: a Bucolic Romance

Cate: Short Stories  Author:novel 

The thing was incredible. It was intolerable—just cause for mutiny. Talk about injustice, arrogant denial of the equal rights of man and beast! Well, here was a spectacle calculated to make the heavens weep. Yet never had a June sky revealed a deeper shade of blue for fleecy clouds to sail upon. The wind that should have risen in a shr...

Good Form for All Occasions

Cate: Short Stories  Author:novel 

THE special trunks now readily procurable for week-end visits remind us not to burden our friends with heavy or excessive luggage. The visitor may have difficulty in deciding what costumes to carry. Hence a considerate hostess often mentions in her note of invitation what the out-of-door amusements are likely to be. If a tennis-court, ...

German Influence on British Cavalry

Cate: Short Stories  Author:novel 

This essay is meant to be read in connection with the facts and arguments adduced in my book of last year, \"War and the Arme Blanche,\" with its Introduction by Field-Marshal Lord Roberts. From the nature of the case I have not been able to avoid a small measure of repetition, but I have done my best to confine myself to new ground.

Girls of the Morning-Glory Camp Fire

Cate: Short Stories  Author:novel 

“Why did she choose ‘Morning-Glory’ as her tribe name?” asked M?nkw?n the Rainbow of Sesooā the Flame, as Rainbow and Flame, with girlish arms entwining, stood beneath the shelter of the Silver Twins, two kingly birch-trees, so identical in stature even to their topmost jeweled crowns of leaves flashing in the July sun, so alike in the...

Greek and Roman Ghost Stories

Cate: Short Stories  Author:novel 

Though there is no period at which the ancients do not seem to have believed in a future life, continual confusion prevails when they come to picture the existence led by man in the other world, as we see from the sixth book of the ?neid. Combined with the elaborate mythology of Greece, we are confronted with the primitive belief of It...

Gossip in a Library

Cate: Short Stories  Author:novel 

It is curious to reflect that the library, in our customary sense, is quite a modern institution. Three hundred years ago there were no public libraries in Europe. The Ambrosian, at Milan, dates from 1608; the Bodleian, at Oxford, from 1612. To these Angelo Rocca added his in Rome, in 1620. But private collections of books always exist...

German Barbarism

Cate: Short Stories  Author:novel 

Eternal peace is a chimera. Whatever pains we may take to avoid war, there always comes a moment when tradition and interest, passion and affection clash and bring to pass the shock which we desired to avoid, a shock which, in the conditions within which civilisation evolves, appears not merely inevitable, but salutary. So we see that ...

Ghetto Comedies

Cate: Short Stories  Author:novel 

I cannot pretend that my ambition to paint the Man of Sorrows had any religious inspiration, though I fear my dear old dad at the Parsonage at first took it as a sign of awakening grace. And yet, as an artist, I have always been loath to draw a line between the spiritual and the beautiful; for I have ever held that the beautiful has in...

Gleaning of a Mystic

Cate: Classical Novels  Author:novel 

The contents of this book are among the last writings of Max Heindel, the mystic. They contain some of his deepest thoughts, and are the result of years of research and occult investigation. He, too, could say as did Parsifal: “Through error and through suffering I came, through many failures and through countless woes.” At last he was...

Gold-Seeking on the Dalton Trail

Cate: Classical Novels  Author:novel 

Among my first passions was that for exploration. The Unknown—that region of mysteries lying upon the outskirts of commonplace environment—drew me with a mighty attraction. My earliest recollections are of wanderings into the domains of the neighbors, and of excursions—not infrequently in direct contravention to parental warnings—over ...
