Page 265 - At least one sample in three must bend 180 degrees to this curve without cracking. When nicked on one side, and bent by a blow from a sledge, the fracture must be nearly all fibrous, showing but few crystalline specks. 109. Specimens from angle, plate...
Page 70 - That would have been the truth and nothing but the truth, but not the whole truth.

Page 457 - Hence, if a charge of ore is first lixiviated with ordinary sodium hyposulphite solution to dissolve the silver chloride, and, subsequently, with cuprous hyposulphite, — this solvent is called the extra-solution, — an additional amount of silver is extracted which would have been lost in the tailings by working according to the old method alone.
Page 362 - Since the great discovery of magnetic electricity by Faraday in 1830, electricians have had recourse to mechanical force for the production of their most powerful effects ; but the power of the magneto-electrical machine seems to depend in an equal measure upon the force expended on the one hand, and upon permanent magnetism on the other.
