Strona 150 - So the Deacon inquired of the village folk Where he could find the strongest oak, That couldn't be split nor bent nor broke, — That was for spokes and floor and sills; He sent for lancewood to make the thills; The crossbars were ash, from the straightest trees, The panels of white-wood, that cuts like cheese, But lasts like iron for things like these; The hubs of logs from the "Settler's Ellum...
Strona 140 - Spanish sailors with bearded lips, And the beauty and mystery of the ships, And the magic of the sea. And the voice of that wayward song Is singing and saying still: 'A boy's will is the wind's will, And the thoughts of youth are long, long thoughts.
Strona 151 - V all the kentry raoun' ; It should be so built that it couldn break daown: 'Fur,' said the Deacon, "t's mighty plain Thut the weakes' place mus' stan' the strain ; 'N' the way t' fix it, uz I maintain, is only jest T' make that place uz strong uz the rest.
Strona 151 - What do you think the parson found, When he got up and stared around? The poor old chaise in a heap or mound, As if it had been to the mill and ground!
Strona 261 - I began to think whether there might not be a motion, as it were, in a circle.

From the strong principle of inheritance, any selected variety will tend to propagate its new and modified form.
Strona 96 - Council for Professional Development is composed of representatives of the American Society of Civil Engineers, American Institute of Mining and Metallurgical Engineers, American Society of Mechanical Engineers, American Institute of Electrical Engineers...
Strona 146 - Ef you're arter folks o' gumption, You've a darned long row to hoe. Take them editors thet's crowin' Like a cockerel three months old, — Don't ketch any on 'em goin', Though they be so blasted bold; Aint they a prime lot o' fellers? 'Fore they think on't guess they'l sprout (Like a peach thet's got the yellers), With the meanness bustin' out. Wai, go 'long to help 'em stealin' Bigger pens to cram with slaves, Help the men thet's oilers dealin
Strona 147 - Then seems to come a hitch, — things lag behind, Till some fine mornin' Spring makes up her mind, An' ez, when snow-swelled rivers cresh their dams Heaped-up with ice thet dovetails in an' jams, A leak comes spirtin' thru some pin-hole cleft, Grows stronger, fercer, tears out right an...
Strona 145 - When Cuba's weeds have quite forgot The power of suction to resist, And claret-bottles harbor not Such dimples as would hold your fist, — When publishers no longer steal, And pay for what they stole before, — When the first locomotive's wheel Rolls through the Hoosac tunnel's bore ; — Till then let Gumming blaze away, And Miller's saints blow up the globe ; But when you see that blessed day, Then order your ascension robe...
