In a faraway country where few people have ever traveled, there was once a wonderful church. It stood on a high hill in a great city. Every Sunday and on holidays like Christmas, thousands of people climbed the hill to the church. The main room of the church was so long that if you stood at one end, you almost could not see the other end. In the farthest corner was an organ. This organ could play music very loud.

It was especially wonderful when it was lighted with burning candles for a holiday and fill ...

I did as my friend asked me to do and this story is the result.I found Simon Wheeler sleeping by the stove in the ruined mining camp of Angels.

I added that if Mister Wheeler could tell me anything about this Leonidas W. Smiley, I would feel a great responsibility to him. Simon Wheeler forced me into a corn ...

Since John was the oldest boy, his mother told him he would have to take care of the family. He was sixteen.

He said the farmer had borrowed forty dollars from him. ''When do you think you will pay me back the money you owe me?'' the judge asked John. ''I hope you are not like your father,'' he said, ''he was a lazy man who never worked hard.''During that summer, John worked on other people's farms all week.
