Crime, broadly speaking, is the attempt by fraud or violence to possess oneself of something belonging to another, and as such the cases of it in history are as clear as those dealt with in criminal... More > courts. Germany to-day has been guilty of a perverse and criminal adventure, the outcome of that false morality applied to historical transactions, of which Carlyle's life of Frederick is a monumental example. In that book we have a man whose instincts in more ways than one were those of a criminal, held up for our admiration, in the same way that the same writer fell into dithyrambic praise over a villain called Francia, a former President of Paraguay. A most interesting work might be written on the great criminals of history, and might do something towards restoring that balance of moral judgment in historical transactions, for the perversion of which we are suffering to-day.< Less

"Do You, Do you, B-B-Believe in...GHOSTS?" It's a question I'm always asked by the purely incredulous: Do you actually believe in all of this ghostly nonsense? It's a difficult question... More > to answer; I've certainly SEEN ghosts (while wide awake, sober, with mine own two eyes), and I've had my share of spectral and spiritualistic communications. Whether or not ghosts actually exist in the same way in which we actually believe that they do is strictly a matter of conjecture and faith. After all, it's a free society: people can believe whatever in Hell it is they want to! The question is far beyond the scope of the present volume, which simply collects a small handful of classic ghost tales from the Victorian era for the edification and delictation of young readers, most of whom will be encountering these frightening sojourns into the world of the spirits for the Very.
