Seite 272 - See also the report of 1884 of a royal commission "to inquire into the instruction of the industrial classes of certain foreign countries in technical and other subjects, for the purpose of comparison with that of the corresponding classes in this country; and into the influence of such instruction on manufacturing and other industries at home and abroad.
Seite 514 - The reason why natural gas should collect under the arches of the rocks is sufficiently plain, from a consideration of its volatile nature. Then, too, the extensive fissuring of the rock, which appears necessary to form a capacious reservoir for a large gas well, would take place most readily along the anticlinals where the tension in bending would be greatest.
Seite 54 - Institution, to be composed of the Vice-President, the Chief Justice of the United States, and three members of the Senate and three members of the House of Representatives...
Seite 512 - To witness these pupae in such vast numbers that one cannot step on the ground without crushing several, swarming out of their subterranean holes and scrambling over the ground, all converging to the one central point, and then in a steady stream clambering up the trunk, and diverging again on the branches, is an experience not readily forgotten, and affording good food for speculation on the nature of instinct.
Seite 151 - I was at a loss how to best approach his awful crown of snow. At length, and it was so sudden and so fleeting that I had no time to fully take in the majesty of the snowy dome of Kibo, the clouds parted and I looked on a blaze of snow so blinding white under the brief flicker of sunlight that I could see little detail.

Close by these tents a thermometer covered by a single sheet of glass, and surrounded by wool, rose to 237° in the sun, and sometimes in the tent, which was darkened for the study of separate rays, the heat was absolutely beyond human endurance. Finally, our apparatus was taken apart and packed in small pieces on the backs of mules, who were to carry...
Seite 514 - F. They were then opened, and the contents submitted to microscopical examination. The general result may be stated thus: The vitality of micro-organisms cannot be destroyed by prolonged exposure to extreme cold. It is clear, therefore, that any hope of preserving meat by permanently sterilizing it by cold must be i Proc.
Seite 514 - These facts seem to connect gas territory unmistakably with the disturbance in the rocks caused by their upheaval into arches, but the crucial test was yet to be made in the actual location of good gas territory on this theory. During the last two years, I have submitted it to all manner of tests, both in location and comdemning gas territory, and the general result has been to confirm the anticlinal theory beyond a reasonable doubt.
Seite 513 - ... 400 tons of coal per day, a visitor now walks along the long row of boilers and sees but one man in attendance. The house being whitewashed, not a sign of the dirty fuel of former days is to be seen; nor do the stacks emit smoke. In the Union iron mills our puddlers have whitewashed the coal bunkers belonging to their furnaces.
