This diurnal heating action of the sun on the upper strata would harmonise far better with the general uniformity of the daily barometric oscillation along the different parallels of latitude, as well as with its general independence of weather. We need not quite exclude...
Page 500 - This Swithin was a saint, I trow, And Winchester's bishop also. Who in his time did many a feat, As popish legends do repeat: A woman having broke her eggs By stumbling at another's legs, For which she made a woful cry, St.
