Ecstasy: A Study of Happiness

Cate: Short Stories  Author:novel 

Dolf Van Attema, in the course of an after-dinner stroll, had called on his wife’s sister, Cecile van Even, on the Scheveningen Road. He was waiting in her little boudoir, pacing up and down, among the rosewood chairs and the vieux rose moiré ottomans, over and over again, with three or four long steps, measuring the width of the tiny ...

Emma McChesney & Co.

Cate: Short Stories  Author:novel 

The door marked \"MRS. MCCHESNEY\" was closed. T. A. Buck, president of the Buck Featherloom Petticoat Company, coming gaily down the hall, stopped before it, dismayed, as one who, with a spicy bit of news at his tongue\'s end, is met with rebuff before the first syllable is voiced. That closed door meant: \"Busy. Keep out.\"

Essays and Lectures

Cate: Children's Novel  Author:novel 

 With the exception of the Poems in Prose this volume does not contain anything which the author ever contemplated reprinting.  The Rise of Historical Criticism is interesting to admirers of his work, however, because it shows the development of his style and the wide intellectual range distinguishing the least borné of all the late Vi...

Essays on some unsettled Questions of Political Economy

Cate: Short Stories  Author:novel 

 Of these Essays, which were written in 1829 and 1830, the fifth alone has been previously printed.

Economic Sophisms

Cate: Short Stories  Author:novel 

 My design in this little volume is to refute some of the arguments which are urged against the Freedom of Trade. I do not propose to engage in a contest with the protectionists; but rather to instil a principle into the minds of those who hesitate because they sincerely doubt.

Essays on Political Economy

Cate: Short Stories  Author:novel 

 My object in this treatise is to examine into the real nature of the Interest of Capital, for the purpose of proving that it is lawful, and explaining why it should be perpetual.

Ecclesiastical Vestments

Cate: Classical Novels  Author:novel 

Within comparatively recent years the discovery has been made that it is possible to treat the Bible, for critical purposes, as though it were an ordinary item of national literature, while maintaining a fitting reverence for it as the inspired Word; and that by so doing a flood of sidelight is cast upon it which illuminates the obscur...

Enchanted India

Cate: Classical Novels  Author:novel 

The air is heavy with indefinable perfume. We are already coasting the Indian shore, but it remains invisible, and gives no sign but by these gusts of warmer air laden with that inscrutable aroma of musk and pepper. A lighthouse to port, which we have for some time taken for a star, vanishes in the light mist that hangs over the coast,...

Eastern Stories and Legends

Cate: Short Stories  Author:novel 

These stories of the Buddha-Rebirths are not for one age or for one country, but for all time, and for the whole world. Their philosophy might be incorporated into the tenets of faith of a League of Nations without destroying any national forms of religious teaching. On the other hand those who prefer the foundation of more orthodox vi...
