"But supposing there should come too much of it," I said, "and wash both the baths and the bathers away?" "Such an idea is ridiculous. It can be adjusted to a nicety. I am very glad I happened to observe this thing, this this noble phenomenon. I shall speak to Montague about it at once, before I am half an hour older.

The clear soup hot, and the ninety-two Ayala, extra dry, chilled to a nicety and so with the rest of the menu. Glass, silver, china, were set forth daintily upon the fine white damask, under the glow of scarlet-shaded candles.

Movements such as those made in typewriting and piano-playing, when measured in the psychological laboratory, are found to copy each other with extreme fidelity. The human body is a machine which may be adjusted to a high degree of nicety, and habit is the mechanism by which this adjustment is made. A third advantage is that a stock of habits makes life easier.

Unbuttoning his overcoat, he took from an inside pocket, the torn half of a large envelope, and unlocking the drawer of his desk, hunted for a similar fragment. Spreading them out before him, he fitted the zigzag edges with great nicety, and there lay the well-known superscription: "Last Will and Testament of Robert Luke Darrington."

In this department Argelander, whom he attracted from finance to astronomy, and trained in his own methods, was his assistant and successor.

I caught up instead a leg of the stool which lay handy, and, watching my opportunity, dealt the landlord a shrewd blow under the ear, which laid him out in a moment on the wreck of his own table. 'Now, I cried, brandishing my new weapon, which fitted the hand to a nicety, 'come on! Come on! if you dare to strike a blow, you peddling, truckling, huckstering knaves!

We durst not drop any considerable pebble lest the sentinels should hear, and those that we dropped we could not hear ourselves. We had never a watch or none that had a second-hand; and though every one of us could guess a second to a nicety, all somehow guessed it differently.

After some conversation with Tom Turner it was decided to give the crew a rest, and postpone what required to be done to the next morning.
