    The ground and goal of human life (1919) by Charles Gray Shaw

    The ground and goal of human life (1919) by Charles Gray Shaw The work contained in the following pages expresses, as it were, a treaty of peace between the forces of Individualism here and those of scientific-social thought there.

    Dickson’s How to speak in public; (1913) PDF book

    Dickson’s How to speak in public; (1913) PDF book  ORATORY supplies the most sublime gratification which the gods have to give. To subdue the audience and blend mind with mind affords an intoxication beyond the ambrosia of Elysium.

    Live and learn (1914) by Washington Gladden PDF book: Self Help book The readers of these pages will soon discover that they are facing a platform or a pulpit, and listening to spoken words. They are printed as they were spoken because any attempt to change them into essays would have altered their essential character. If they have any value, it is because they are the direct communication of a living man to living men and women, of whose presence he is conscious, for whose response he is waiting.
