Strana 6 - Yes, if they repent; I would not only take them into my house but unto my bosom. I would wipe the tears from their eyes — I would soothe their sorrows, and support them in the trying hour. I would divide my last morsel with them.

Desor, that he there described similar features which he observed in connection with the Aar Glacier in 1844, but I have not been able to obtain a copy of the work for examination. f In an article in the Geological Magazine, Decade II, vol. iii, 1876, published during the same season that I was making these observations, and which I had not then seen, being away from home, Rev. TG Bonney clearly states the same conclusion, presenting as evidences...
Strana 64 - It is with singular satisfaction that I announce to you the completion of the survey of the four lines comprehending the Territory of Columbia. These lines are opened and cleared forty feet wide; that is, twenty feet on each side of the lines limiting the Territory; and in order to perpetuate the work, I have set up square milestones, marked progressively with the number of miles from the beginning on Jones's Point to the west corner; thence from the west corner; thence from the north corner to the...
Strana 63 - Adler, that so little has been accomplished in the way of educating the public to sound and full appreciation of the evil consequences of child labor, and it is especially humiliating to know that the District of Columbia, the seat of the national government, is the only community with the exception of Georgia, Idaho, Nevada and the Indian Territory, which is at present without legislation of some kind on the subject of child labor.
