Pagina 26 - So the struck eagle, stretched upon the plain, No more through rolling clouds to soar again, Viewed his own feather on the fatal dart, And winged the shaft that quivered in his heart ; Keen were his pangs, but keener far to feel He nursed the pinion which impelled the steel ; While the same plumage that had warmed his nest Drank the last life-drop of his bleeding breast.

During the early days of the trial, nothing occurred to indicate that arsenic had been administered...
Pagina 291 - The adhesive plaster bands are beyond all comparison the best means of making permanent extension which are at present known to surgeons. Hitherto, one of the most serious difficulties in the way of extension, and the objection which has been most effectively urged against its adoption, has been the excoriations, ulcerations, and even sloughing, which so often occurred from the use of the various extending bands about the ankle.
