But Edward soon found the Lithograph Company calling for "copy," and, write as he might, he could not supply the biographies fast enough. He, at last, completed the first hundred, and so instantaneous was their success that Mr. Knapp called for a second hundred, and then for a third.

This means that, looked at in its initial impulsion, before any scission, life was a tendency to accumulate in a reservoir, as do especially the green parts of vegetables, with a view to an instantaneous effective discharge, like that which an animal brings about, something that would have otherwise flowed away. It is like an effort to raise the weight which falls.

Another followed it instantly, and at deliberate intervals a third and fourth. Penfield blenched. His eyes wavered. He punched the bell-button a second time. The door was thrown wide and with the instantaneous effect of a jack-in-the-box Pete showed a dirty-grey face of fright on the threshold. "Good Lord, boss!" he yelled. "Run for yo' life! We's raided!" He vanished....

An instantaneous and distinct cleavage of class divisions was the result. Intrenched in their possessions the landed class looked down with haughty disdain upon the farming and laboring classes.

A contrast, but yet only an illustration of one of the ordinary phases of human nature after all, as father would have said, I thought, this reflection passing through my mind with that instantaneous spontaneity with which such fancies do occur to one, as Rooney placed me in my assigned position.

Let me introduce you, Sir Tiglath Butt Mrs. Sagittarius. Mr. Sagittarius, will you take " "Mr. Sagittarius!" roared Sir Tiglath. "Where is he?" That gentleman gathered Mr. Ferdinand's trousers up in both hands and prepared for instantaneous flight. "Where is he?" bellowed Sir Tiglath, wheeling round with amazing rapidity for so fat a man. "Ha!" He had viewed Mr. Sagittarius, who, grasping Mr.

Alas! for those poor unfortunates, abandoned and repulsed on all sides an instantaneous, unhoped-for assistance, accompanied by benevolent words of consideration, tenderly commiserative, may easily wear the supernatural appearance of a miracle.

Desirous of avenging his brother, he seized David, and cast him into a winepress, where the king would have suffered a torturous end, if by a miracle the earth beneath him had not begun to sink, and so saved him from instantaneous death. His plight, however, remained desperate, and it required a second miracle to rescue him.

In such situations men like MacVeigh and Pelliter do not waste precious moments in prearranging actions in words. Their mental processes are instantaneous and correlative and they act. Without a word Billy replaced Little Mystery in her nest without even giving her a sip of the warm tea, and by the time the dogs were straightened in their traces Pelliter was handing him his Remington.

In each state of the embryo there is something besides an instantaneous structure, something besides a conservative play of actions and reactions; there is a tendency, a direction, an effort, a creative activity. The stage traversed is less interesting than the traversing itself; this again is an act of generating impulse, rather than an effect of mechanical inertia.
