Seite 214 - He causeth the grass to grow for the cattle, and herb for the service of man: that he may bring forth food out of the earth...
Seite 13 - The lion would not leave her desolate, But with her went along, as a strong guard Of her chaste person, and a faithful mate Of her sad troubles and misfortunes hard ; Still, when she slept, he kept both watch and ward; And, when she waked, he waited diligent, With humble service to her will prepared : From her fair eyes he took commandement, And ever by her looks conceived her intent.
Seite 241 - Sir, a woman's preaching is like a dog's walking on his hind legs. It is not done well ; but you are surprised to find it done at all.
Seite 50 - ... buds. You will thus have formed the foundation of a pyramid. I need scarcely add that the shoots from the stock must be carefully removed during the growing season, so as to throw all its strength into the buds. It will also be advisable to pinch in the three topmost buds rather severely the first season, or they will, to use a common expression, draw up sap too rapidly, and thus weaken the lower buds. The terminal shoot must be cut off early in June.
Seite 200 - It appears of more regular growth than erecta, and may perhaps be considered an improved variety of it.
Seite 39 - I have a misty idea that my friend Jackman the gardener put many more buds in than I did. To use the common phrase, nearly all the buds ' took,' ie lived, and many of them put forth fine clusters of bloom the following August and September.

What a glorious sight met my eye ! Amid the masses of flowers of the pale climbing roses,...
Seite 201 - silver variegated" is a seedling from the Golden Yew, but which I never thought sufficiently distinct or attractive to merit a name. 20. T. b. fastigiata variegata, the variegated Irish Yew, is a sport from the Irish Yew, with occasional silver leaves. The plant is of slow growth, and still scarce, but it is hardly striking enough to become a general favourite. [In addition to the above I should now (1892) recommend T. Dovastoni aurea ; T. japonica aurea ; T. gracilis pendula, and T. f. foliis aureis.]...
Seite 201 - ... there are two or more varieties of too close an external resemblance to be distinguished ; moreover, the offspring from seed retain the variegation of the parent, though differing slightly among themselves. T. b. elegantissima is paler, more erect and uniform in growth than the last-mentioned. Both varieties, if grown entirely in the shade, quickly become green, but regain their golden appearance on re-exposure to the sun. T. b. fastigiata variegata (variegated Irish Yew) is a sport from the...
Seite 107 - ... though certainly not a beautiful one. Wonderful as each plant is, when regarded singly, as a grand specimen of vegetable life, these solemn, silent forms, which stand motionless even in a hurricane, give a somewhat dreary character to the landscape. Some look like petrified giants, stretching out their arms in speechless pain, and others stand like lonely sentinels, keeping their dreary watch on the edge of precipices...
Seite 215 - The gas was collected, and found to be a mixture of hydrogen and oxygen, in the proportion of three parts of the former to one of the latter.
