Among the Esquimaux; Or, Adventures Under the Arctic Circle (1894 )

Edward Sylvester Ellis (April 11, 1840 - June 20, 1916) was an American author who was born in Ohio and died at Cliff Island, Maine.Ellis was a teacher, school administrator, journalist, and the author of hundreds of books and magazine articles that he produced by his name and by a number of noms de plume. Notable fiction stories by Ellis include The Steam Man of the Prairies and Seth Jones, or the Captives of the Frontier.Internationally, Edward S. Ellis is probably known best for his Deerfoot novels read widely by young boys until the 1950s.Dime novelsSeth Jones was the most significant of early dime novels of publishers Beadle and Adams. It is said that Seth Jones was one of Abraham Lincoln's favorite stories. During the mid-1880s, after a fiction-writing career of some thirty years, Ellis eventually began composing more serious works of biography, history, and persuasive writing. Of note was "The Life of Colonel David Crockett," which had the story of Davy Crockett giving a speech usually called "Not Yours To Give." It was a speech in opposition to awarding money to a Navy widow on the grounds that Congress had no Constitutional mandate to give charity. It was said to have been inspired by Crockett's meeting with a Horatio Bunce, a much quoted man in Libertarian circles, but one for whom historical evidence is non-existent.PseudonymsBesides the one hundred fifty-nine books published by his own name, Ellis' work was published under various pseudonyms, including: "James Fenimore Cooper Adams" or "Captain Bruin Adams" (68 titles)"Boynton M. Belknap" (9 titles)"J. G. Bethune" (1 title)"Captain Latham C. Carleton" (2 titles)"Frank Faulkner" (1 title)"Capt. R. M. Hawthorne" (4 titles)"Lieut. Ned Hunter" (5 titles)"Lieut. R. H. Jayne" (at least 2 titles in the War Whoop series)[8]"Charles E. Lasalle" (16 titles)"H. R. Millbank" (3 titles)"Billex Muller" (3 titles)"Lieut. J. H. Randolph" (8 titles)"Emerson Rodman" (10 titles)"E. A. St. Mox" (2 titles)"Seelin Robins" (19 titles)He was a major author during the era of inexpensive fiction of the nineteenth century (dime novels). Because he wrote under dozens of pseudonyms, as well as under his own name, it is virtually impossible to know exactly how many books he wrote, but it is believed to be in the hundreds. Notable works include: The Lost Trail (1884), The Land of Mystery (1889), Through Forest and Fire (1891), Two Boys in Wyoming (1898), Thomas Jefferson (1898/1903), The Jungle Fugitives (1903) and Oonomoo: The Huron (1911).

About Aunt Crete's Emancipation by Grace Livingston Hill Miss Lucretia Ward lives with her sister, Carrie, and her niece, Luella, who frequently impose on her good nature. Mother and daughter expect most of the housework to be done by Aunt Crete, along with much of the sacrifice necessary to keep Luella happy and dressed in the latest fashion. When a telegram arrives from the west with news of an impending visit from Crete's and Carrie's nephew, Donald Grant, Carrie and Luella are not pleased at all. Assuming that Donald, their "backwoods cousin," will not know how to "behave in polite company," they rush off to a fancy resort in order to avoid certain embarrassment. Aunt Crete doesn't mind staying at home while they go to the seashore for a holiday with their high-society friends. She's just concerned about how she'll explain their rudeness to Donald. The man who comes knocking on Aunt Crete's door is tall and handsome, and the picture of refinement. As it turns out, he's very wealthy. Donald takes Aunt Crete shopping and pays for French maids to fix up her hair. Then he takes her to the resort where Luella and Carrie are staying, setting off a series of not-so-pleasant surprises for them.

Baseball Joe in the World Series: Pitching for the Championship

Baseball Joe in the World Series : Or Pitching for the ChampionshipWhen the gong rang, the Giants started out as though they were going to sew up the game then and there.?Burkett set the ball rolling with a wicked drive through the box that got past Roth before he could gauge it. Larry followed suit with a smoking hit to left. A prettily placed sacrifice bunt by Denton advanced both men a base. Roth struck out Willis on three pitched balls, but Becker came to the rescue with a line drive over second that scored Burkett easily, though Larry was put out as he made a great slide for the rubber.?The net result was only one run, but the most encouraging feature of the inning was the exhibition of free hitting.??Three clean hits in one time at bat is going some,? Robson exulted.??The boys seem to have their batting clothes on for fair,? responded McRae, vastly pleased.??I doubt if that bird will come again for more,? judged ?Robbie.? ?They?ll probably take him out and put Fraser in.??Joe was in fine fettle, and he showed his appreciation of the lead his mates had given him by retiring the Red Sox without a man seeing first base.?Contrary to Robson?s prediction, the Boston manager elected still to pin his faith to Roth, who tightened up after his bad start and for the next three innings held the Giants scoreless.?He was helped in this by the superb support given him. Both the outfield and infield were on their toes all the time, and drives that ordinarily would have gone for hits were turned into outs in dazzling fashion.?One magnificent catch by Thompson, the Red Sox catcher, was the feature of the fourth inning. Iredell, who was at bat, sent up a sky-piercing foul. Thompson, Hobbs and Roth started for it.??I?ve got it, I?ve got it!? yelled Thompson.?The others stopped and Thompson kept on.?The ball swerved toward the Boston dugout, where the substitutes and extra pitchers of the team were sitting.?A shout of warning went up, but Thompson did not falter. With his eye on the ball and his hands outstretched, he plunged ahead.? He grabbed the ball in a terrific forward lunge and went head over heels into the dugout, where his comrades caught him and saved him from injury. But he still clutched the ball as he was put on his feet, and a tempest of applause went up in which even the Giants and their partisans could not help joining.
