  • Veranilda
    by Gissing, George R.

    I guessed as much. The suspicion came to me at a certain moment this morning --
    a mere grain, which ever since has been growing tanquam favus. I am not wont to

    your humble kinsman might serve you?'
  • The Confederate Farmers
    by Gulliver, Gene

    After the Civil War, veterans of the war returned home to their farming
    communities along the Missouri-Kansas border. They were looking for peace and
    tranquility; what they found was turmoil. Forced to leave their homes, four of
    these men came to Independence and returned to farming. Things were going well
    for these former confederate soldiers and their families until Bruce Yeager came
    to town with a carpetbag, $100,000 and a confidential map showing where a
    proposed railroad line was being planned. Bruce planned to acquire the land that
    the railroad was going to pass through. To accomplish this plan, he befriended
    the mayor and hired a gunman named Tony Creek. He used the mayor to acquire the
    land by the powers of eminent domain and used Tony Creek to enforce his desires.
    When Bruce attempted to take land from these farmers he found out that they were
    not ordinary farmers. These men were veterans with a shameful, dark secret.
