Էջ 305 - And out of the ground the Lord God formed every beast of the field and every fowl of the air; and brought them unto Adam to see what he would call them: and whatsoever Adam called every living creature, that was the name thereof. And Adam gave names to all cattle, and to the fowl of the air, and to every beast of the Field; but for Adam there was not found an help meet for him.
Էջ 272 - If you examine this glass case you will at once see the results obtained by Mr. Maund. In each instance the male parent is on the left hand, the female on the right, and the third specimen shows the result of combining the two kinds; a better illustration could not be desired. Here is a hybrid considerably larger than the parents, and in the next instance one considerably shorter and stouter. In another example you see a very coarse variety gained between two apparently fine varieties; that is, perhaps,...
Էջ 421 - It will not be doubted, that with reference either to individual or national welfare, agriculture is of primary importance. In proportion as nations advance in population, and other circumstances of maturity, this truth becomes more apparent ; and renders the cultivation of the soil more and more an object of public patronage. Institutions for promoting it, grow up supported by the public purse : And to what object can it be dedicated with greater propriety...
Էջ 336 - a benefactor to his country"? The standard definition of a national benefactor is "the man who causes two blades of grass to grow where one grew before.
Էջ 448 - Such a skin is indicative of weakness of constitution, though of good feeding properties. A perfect touch will be found with a thick, loose skin, floating, as it were, on a layer of soft fat, yielding to the least pressure, and springing back towards the fingers like a piece of soft, thick, chamois leather, and covered with thick, glossy, soft hair.
Էջ 272 - I think this is a very important case, well made out, because the moment you show that by mixing corn, as you mix other things, you obtain corresponding results, there is no reason to doubt that an ingenious person, occupying himself with such matters, will arrive at the same improvements in regard to varieties of corn as have already been obtained in the animal kingdom, and in those parts of the vegetable kingdom which have been so dealt with.
Էջ 336 - Heaven as it were, to stand by and assist man in his severest toils, must have rendered him easy in his circumstances, rich in all the necessaries and comforts of life, a master instead of a slave, a being with leisure for enjoyment and improvement, a freeman delivered from the original curse which declared that in the sweat of his brow should man eat bread all the days of his life. But if, rejecting mere inference, we...
Էջ 375 - I went by the field of the slothful . . . and lo! it was all grown over with thorns ; and nettles had covered the face thereof and the stone wall thereof was broken down.
Էջ 272 - Mr. Maund has been occupied for some years past in the endeavor to ascertain whether something like an important result cannot be produced upon wheat by muling, and he exhibited the specimens before us in evidence of what may be done. You will observe that sometimes his hybrids are apparently very good, and sometimes worse than the parents, as we know is always the case. When you hybridize one plant with another, you cannot ascertain...
