Seite 316 - These conclude the first part of the book : the second part is devoted to
Seite 271 - Taking the country examined from south to north, Loch Broom was first described. Here the author considered there was clear proof of dislocation. Between the Torridon and the Caledonian there were several subparallel faults, which increased in throw from west to east, Torridon Sandstone being first brought up through the quartzite, then further east through the dolomite, while still further east the Hebridean was thrown up, the Caledonian appearing east of the Hebridean. This Hebridean was the "...

Seite 339 - While it is probable that some definite peculiarities are at the basis of the differences in the geographical distribution of cancer, they have so far not been discovered. I do not propose here to discuss the many theories which have been advanced from time to time to account for the origin of cancer, none of which affords a satisfactory explanation of the nature of malignant disease. The fact, however, that we are up to the present ignorant of its actual cause does not prevent our attacking the...
Seite 329 - The body was quite short, and the adominal cavity of moderate size. The legs and feet were massive, and the bones all solid. The feet were plantigrade, and each foot-print must have been about a square yard in extent. The tail was large and nearly all the bones solid. The diminutive head will first attract attention, as it is smaller in proportion to the body than in any vertebrate hitherto known.
Seite 270 - The object of the author was to prove that the eastern Gneiss of the Northern Highlands, usually regarded as of " Lower Silurian " age, was to be placed in the Archaean. While admitting that this gneiss frequently overlies the quartzo-dolomitic group of Erriboll and Assynt, he held that this relation was due to dislocation accompanied by powerful thrust from the east, which had squeezed both formations into a series of folds, thrown over towards the west, so as to cause a general easterly dip.
Seite 64 - ... during the last century ; the prehistoric delta of the Arve as the most conspicuous instance in the Alps of the partial damming-up of a valley by diluvial detritus ; the quondam Lake of Reutte as an instance connected with violent inversion of strata ; and the ancient lakes of the Grodner and Oetz Thais as instances of the action of moraines. The common fact of observation that lakes are more numerous in glaciated than in non-glaciated countries, the author thought, was partly explained by some...
Seite 318 - Ida itself is almost a dome, the lowest rocks (talc schists) occupying the summit. On the northern slopes there is true gneiss. No igneous rocks enter into the structure of this mountain. At different horizons there are bands of coarsely crystalline limestone, and as far as can be seen this series is conformable throughout. (2) Resting on these old rocks and in part made up of their remains is a series of partially crystalline rocks, chiefly limestone. It is probable that this series is in large...
Seite 468 - ... is the rule and law which seems to govern all things around us ; aye, and very often all things that we depend upon within us too. For every physician knows the terrible continuities of disease — how the thinning of the walls of vessels, and the weakening or degeneration of other organic tissues, go on, often unseen and unsuspected, until their appropriate result emerges in some catastrophe which destroys in a moment of time the reason or the life. And if it is irrational to quote the continuity...
