The latter takes his seat, the motor starts, the propeller turns around quicker and quicker, and at last the pilot waves his arm the wedges are withdrawn from under the wheels.

Of course he depended upon batteries for current, but the fundamental idea was embodied of using the track for the circuit, one rail being positive and the other negative, and the motor being placed across or between them in multiple arc to receive the current. Such are also practically the methods of to-day.

"Ah! playing to the gallery! Come, Ganimard, I thought you knew me better. Do I, Arsene Lupin, ever waste my time on such puerilities? Would I have written that letter if I could have robbed the baron without writing to him? I want you to understand that the letter was indispensable; it was the motor that set the whole machine in motion.

Then his thoughts leaped back to their own gnawing misery. It was another ten minutes before he saw the scarlet Government motor, with awnings out, slide up the road from the direction of Fulham; and yet five minutes more before the three men appeared with their servants behind them Maxwell, Snowford and Cartwright, all alike, as was Oliver, in white duck from head to foot.

All that can be said is that the ideas of movements are transmitted to the motor centers, and that these send out the appropriate motor impulses. The psychologist classes habitual movements as either automatic or controlled. Automatic movements are purely reflex; the individual does not consciously decide whether they shall be performed or not.

I soothe my face with a rich cigar and ride around in a motor car; I go to a swell cafe to dine and soak my works in the rarest wine. Oh, nothing's too rich for your Uncle Jones, whose check is good for a heap of bones! But, oh, for the old, old shop, Where I set up the auction bills, And printed an ad of a liver pad, And took out the pay in pills!

Above all, American manufacturing has developed three characteristics. These are quantity production, standardization, and the use of labor-saving machinery. It is because Ford and other manufacturers adapted these principles to making the automobile that the American motor industry has reached such gigantic proportions.

The last time all was still underneath the water, and a fear came over me that Alb had knocked his head against something, or got a cramp. But he appeared, spluttering, and announced that he had been cutting the wire through with the chisel. There it was in his hand, a thick, ugly coil, dangerous as an octopus. "Start the motor, Hendrik," he called, even before he had clambered on deck.

I think they were undecided then as to whether they would lock me up or not, but eventually made up their minds on the side of prudence. I was allowed to sit by the fire. Within half an hour a motor came puffing up to the police station, and Dr. Mainwaring entered. "My dear Mr. Anstruther," he inquired breathlessly, "whatever is the matter?"

We can illustrate the defect best by comparing the movements of the heel with those of the crank-pin of an engine. One serves as the lever by which the gastrocnemius helps to propel the body; the other serves the same purpose in the propulsion of a motor cycle.
