He that is once admitted to the right of reason is made a freeman of the whole estate.

Сторінка 38 - ... near London ; the substitution of a constant, instead of an intermittent flow in the sewers ; the abolition of stagnant and tide-locked sewers, with their consequent accumulations of deposit ; and the provision of deep and improved outfalls, for the extension of sewerage into districts previously...
Сторінка 196 - ... epidendri is described by the same writer as flat, of a dirty white color, sometimes brownish, with the exuviae central and yellow).

'' The abdomen ends in several lobes of which the four middle ones are the largest. The rest of the lobes are sharply pointed. Between the lobes are scaly serrate hairs.
Сторінка 103 - I heard, yet so difficult is it to discover the exact interval, that I will not vouch for the mathematical exactness: neither will I pledge myself not to have written a chromatic for an enharmonic interval, or vice versa. I must also, in justice to myself, add, that the singer did not always repeat the musical phrase with precisely the same modulation, though, without a very severe test, this would not have been discernible, nor then to many ears; the general effect being to an European ear very...
Сторінка 106 - ... like a sling to assist them in throwing a stone ; which is the more surprising, as the invention of slings, and bows and arrows, is much more obvious than of the works which these people construct, and both these weapons are found among much ruder nations, and in almost every other part of the world.
