Stran 62 - O'er all there hung the shadow of a fear; A sense of mystery the spirit daunted, And said, as plain as whisper in the ear, The place is haunted!
Stran 131 - The wild mustard in Southern California is like that spoken of in the New Testament, in the branches of which the birds of the air may rest. Coming up out of the earth, so slender a stem that dozens can find starting-point in an inch, it darts up, a slender straight shoot, five, ten, twenty feet, with hundreds of fine feathery branches locking and interlocking with all the other hundreds around it, till it is an inextricable network like lace.
Stran 80 - Eurotas — in wandering through a land whose sentinel peak of Shasta far overtops the Olympian throne of Jupiter — I could not but feel that nature must be false to her promise, or man is not the splendid creature he once was, if the art, the literature, and philosophy of ancient Greece are not one day rivaled on this last of inhabited shores!
Stran 161 - BARBARA. Between the mountains and the sea, Walled by the rock, fringed by the foam, A valley stretches fair and free Beneath the blue of heaven's dome. At rest in that fair valley lies Saint Barbara, the beauteous maid ; Above her head the cloudless skies Smile down upon her charms displayed. The sunlit mountains o'er her shed The splendor of their purple tinge, While round her like a mantle spread The blue seas with their silver fringe. Enfolded in that soothing calm, The earth seems fair and heaven...
Stran 117 - IT IS GOOD TO BE ALIVE. IT is good to be alive when the trees shine green, And the steep red hills stand up against the sky; Big sky, blue sky, with flying clouds between — It is good to be alive and see the clouds drive by! It is good to be alive when the strong winds blow, The strong, sweet winds blowing straightly off the sea; Great sea, green sea, with swinging ebb and flow — It is good to be alive and see the waves roll free ! THE CHANGELESS YEAR.
Stran 43 - The first zone shall embrace the States of Maine, New Hampshire, Vermont, Massachusetts, Connecticut, Rhode Island, New York, New Jersey, Delaware, Maryland...
Stran 131 - Coming up out of the earth, so slender a stem that dozens can find starting-point in an inch, it darts up, a slender straight shoot, five, ten, twenty feet, with hundreds of fine feathery branches locking and interlocking with all the other hundreds around it, till it is an inextricable network like lace. Then it bursts into yellow bloom still finer, more feathery and lacelike. The stems are so infinitesimally small, and of so dark a green, that at a short distance they do not show, and the cloud...
Stran 131 - ... of the farmer; it takes riotous possession of a whole field in a season; once in, never out; for one plant this year, a million the next; but it is impossible to wish that the land were freed from it. Its gold is as distinct a value to the eye as the nugget gold is in the pocket. Father Salvierderra soon found himself in a veritable thicket of these delicate branches, high above his head, and so interlaced that he could make headway only by slowly and patiently disentangling them, as one would...
Stran 233 - Irom a depth of more than 300 feet, and had separately been borne on the shoulders of a man, he having to ascend, not by ladders or other aid, but by climbing up the nearly perpendicular slope of the mine ; and the food the miner lives upon is an interesting subject for the physiologist. He seldom takes meat, and when he has that luxury, it. is simply served out in long thin strips, which have beeu dried in the sun. His chief diet isthe haricot bean, and without this nutritious vegetable he never...
Stran 143 - We are too apt to forget that these people are human like ourselves ; that they are fathers and mothers, husbands and wives, brothers and sisters ; men and women with emotions and passions like our own, even though these feelings are not well regulated and directed in the calm, smoothly flowing channels of civilized life.
