Page 138 - Thro' the shadow of the globe we sweep into the younger day: Better fifty years of Europe than a cycle of Cathay.
Page 408 - Athelstan the number of moneyers allowed to this mint was increased to seven, namely, four for the King, two for the archbishop, and one for the abbot (of St. Augustine's) ; and, judging from our coins, this number seems to have been maintained into the reign of William I.

Page 18 - From the immense differences between the increase of elastic force in gases under high and low pressures, by similar increments of temperature, there can be no doubt that the denser the vapour, or the more difficult of condensation the gas, the greater will be its power under changes of temperature as a mechanical agent: thus carbonic acid will be much more powerful than muriatic acid. In the...
Page 495 - This book should be return the Library on or before the las stamped below. A fine of five cents a day is in by retaining it beyond the sp time.

Page 330 - The positive change in passing from the recent to the ancient animal world is greater, but still singularly small. No fossil animal is so distinct from those now living as to require to be arranged even in a separate class from those which contain existing forms.

Page 5 - From sheet gutta-percha a flat hoop is formed, eight or ten inches in diameter by three inches in depth, and one side is covered by a disc of parchment-paper, so as to form a vessel like a sieve. A mixed solution, which may be supposed to contain sugar and gum, is placed upon the septum to a depth of half an inch, and the instrument then floated upon a considerable volume of water contained in a basin.
