Page 16 - It is sometimes convenient to have an elaborate statement of fact summarized into a few representative figures, the relation between which may be easily apprehended. Such a summary may be framed for the present case by assuming that the normal maximum power of the locomotive tested is that which involves a rate of evaporation of 12 pounds of water per square foot of heating surface per hour, and by averaging from the diagrams (Figs.

Its constituents, in descending order of abundance, are : Light smoky quartz with hairlike crystals of rutile, and sheets of cavities with cracks parallel to them; milk-white soda-lime feldspar (oligoclase) much kaolinized and micacized, with some carbonate and epidote, and in places intergrown with quartz in vermicular structure; clear to scarcely bluish potash feldspar (microcline with inclusions of oligoclase, quartz, and mica, also orthoclase micacized) ; biotite (black mica)...

Page 130 - QUARRY. One in which the joints are either so close or so irregular that no very large blocks of stone can be quarried. CHANNEL.
