The quartz is mainly white, but occasionally smoky; its isolated portions form but a small part, say one-fourth, of the mass; it is veined in structure, but this is probably not a constant character. Small grains of magnetite are scattered through the rock, but not so thickly as in many granites. No other ingredients have as yet been detected....
Página 100 - Alps, during the day in summer, much ice is melted and the water courses from the glaciers accumulate in brooks which, as they reach the crevasses, tumble down in rushing waterfalls, and are lost in the depths of the ice. Directed, however, by the form of the ice passage against the rocky floor of the valley, the water descends at a particular spot, carrying with it the sand, mud, and stones which it may have swept away from the surface of the glacier. By means of these materials it erodes deep pot-holes...

These of course, contained much detail matter in which the general public would have little interest. However, such of it as was deemed to be of that character has been condensed and incorporated in this.

Also, of the loyal support and hearty co-operation given...

Zoarium parasitic, consisting of very slender, tubular threads or stolons, arranged more or less distinctly in a radial manner. Surface of threads with a single row of small pores. These may be wanting locally, and vary considerably in the degree of their separation. Zocecia unknown, probably deciduous.
