Stran 734 - Haply, the river of Time — As it grows, as the towns on its marge Fling their wavering lights On a wider, statelier stream — May acquire, if not the calm Of its early mountainous shore, Yet a solemn peace of its own. And the width of the waters, the hush Of the...
Stran 733 - Are confused as the cries which we hear, Changing and shot as the sights which we see. And we say that repose has fled For ever the course of the river of Time. That cities will crowd to its edge In a blacker, incessanter line; That the din will be more on its banks, Denser the trade on its stream...
Stran 616 - Indirect, by concealing from the purchaser any fact known to the vendor, material to be known by the purchaser, to enable him to judge of the value of the article purchased ; " (2) By conciliating the conflicting interests of the capitalist, the worker and the purchaser, through an equitable division among them of the fund commonly known as Profit; " (3) By preventing the waste of labour now caused by unregulated competition.
Stran 734 - And the width of the waters, the hush Of the grey expanse where he floats, Freshening its current and spotted with foam As it draws to the Ocean, may strike Peace to the soul of the man on its breast — As the pale waste widens around him, As the banks fade dimmer away, As the stars come out, and the night-wind Brings up the stream Murmurs and scents of the infinite sea.

Stran 106 - England alone among the nations of the earth has maintained for centuries a constitutional polity ; and her liberties may be ascribed, above all things, to her free local institutions. Since the days of their Saxon ancestors', her sons have learned, at their own gates, the duties and responsibilities of citizens.
Stran 412 - Every person who causes to fall or flow, or knowingly permits to fall or flow or to be carried into any stream any poisonous noxious or polluting liquid proceeding from any factory or manufacturing process, shall (subject as in this Act mentioned) be deemed to have committed an offence against this Act.
Stran 76 - For wisdom, which is the worker of all things, taught me : for in her is an understanding spirit, holy, one only, manifold, subtil, lively, clear, undefiled, plain, not subject to hurt, loving the thing that is good, quick, which cannot be letted, ready to do good.
Stran 414 - In France and Germany the precipitating processes have been given up as inefficient. In England, a new "successful" patent process is hawked about every few months, to be soon found only an addition to the list of failures ; and the public is perfectly bewildered by the maze of conflicting statements and propositions.
