Such, in brief, is the cell to whose activities it is possible to trace the fundamental properties of all living things. Cells are endowed with the properties of irritability, contractibility, assimilation and reproduction, and it is thus plainly to the study of cells that we must look for an interpretation of life phenomena.

I found that he was disposed to buy the estate's interest in these properties and finally sold it to him for one hundred thousand dollars.

Every experienced operator has in a degree become familiar with the mechanical uses of all the agents employed, while I fear but few understand the properties, and laws governing those properties, which are so indispensable to produce an image impressed upon the silver surface. There are three substances which form the bases for producing a Daguerreotype; silver, iodine and bromine.
