Seite 110 - The earth is fast becoming an unfit home for its noblest inhabitant, and another era of equal human crime and human improvidence, and of like duration with that through which traces of that crime and...
Seite 110 - There are parts of Asia Minor, of Northern Africa, of Greece, and even of Alpine Europe, where the operation of causes set in action by man has brought the face of the earth to a desolation almost as complete as that of the moon ; and though, within that brief space of time which we call
Seite 110 - ... they are known to have been covered with luxuriant woods, verdant pastures and fertile meadows, they are now too far deteriorated to be reclaimable by man ; nor can they become again fitted for human use, except through great geological changes, or other mysterious influences or agencies of which we have no present knowledge, and over which we have no prospective control. The...
Seite 159 - ... left dry by its fall. This species of alternation is the most trying of all circumstances for the endurance of timber; and accordingly the oaken posts decayed, and were twice renewed in the course of a very few years, while those that were made of the Larch remained altogether unchanged.
Seite 110 - Pyrenees, and other mountain-ranges in Central and Southern Europe, and the progress of physical deterioration, have become so rapid, that, in some localities, a single generation has witnessed the beginning and the end of the melancholy revolution.
Seite 22 - You cannot go into the meadow and pluck up a single daisy by the roots, without breaking up a society of nice relations, and detecting a principle more extensive and refined than mere gravitation.

The sunbeam and the dew-drop met there, and the soft summer breeze came whispering through the tall grass to join the silent concert.
Seite 159 - The Larch is unquestionably the most enduring timber that we have. It is remarkable, that whilst the red wood or heart wood is not formed at all in the other resinous trees, till they have lived for a good many years, the Larch, on the contrary, begins to make it soon after it is planted ; and while you may fell a Scotch fir of thirty years old, and find no red wood in it, you can hardly cut down a young Larch large enough to be a walking stick, without finding just such a proportion of red wood...
Seite 140 - It is my firm conviction that if the redwoods are destroyed — and they necessarily will be if not protected by a wise action of our government — California will become a desert, in the true sense of the word.
Seite 22 - And the earths took them to their bosom and introduced them to the daisy germ ; and they all went to work to show that flower to the sun. Each mingled in the honey of its influence, and they nursed " the wee canny thing" with an aliment that made it grow.
Seite 51 - ... 2. No new fruit shall be considered as named until it has been accurately described by some person or committee known to be conversant with existing varieties, and such description shall have been published in at least one horticultural or agricultural journal, or some pomological work of acknowledged standard character. 3. The originator, or he who first makes known a new variety, shall be entitled to name it, and such name, if suitable, shall be adopted by the writer describing the fruit for...
