She'd been on the verge of dying, discussing how her impending death forced her to decide whether she wanted to live or mourn. Whether it was the panic in my voice or my description of the facts, Jackson was beginning to realize the seriousness of what might be happening in his jurisdiction.
Even his lingering doubt about the real cost of her deals with Darken didn't extend to whether or not he was meant to be with the woman in his arms. She could not fathom whether it was curiosity, devotion, gratitude, or apprehension and distrust--but the expression on all the faces was identical.
While talking to Princess Mary he continually looked round as if asking everyone whether he was doing the right thing. Great poetry, whether written in Greek or in English, needs no other interpreter than a responsive heart.
But when Napoleon asked him whether the Russians thought they would beat Bonaparte or not, Babushka screwed up his eyes and considered. When a pause occurred during his short visit, Nicholas, as is usual when there are children, turned to Prince Andrew's little son, caressing him and asking whether he would like to be a hussar.
But whether Helen stays at home or makes visits in other parts of the country, her education is always under the immediate direction and exclusive control of her teacher. For instance, on the twenty-eighth it is suggested to him to cross to the Cayuga road, but just then an adjutant gallops up from Miloradovich asking whether he is to engage the French or retire.
He surprised me by asking whether I remembered the threefold aim of the order: (1) The preservation and study of the mystery. As for the religion and love of art of the builders, it is much the same all the world over, whether the building be an Egyptian temple or the United States Bank.
There were times when I could not afford to sacrifice the bloom of the present moment to any work, whether of the head or hands. As he went along he looked with pleasure at the year's splendid crop of corn, scrutinized the strips of rye field which here and there were already being reaped, made his calculations as to the sowing and the harvest, and asked himself whether he had not forgotten any of the prince's orders.
Whether it was the wine he had drunk, or an impulse of frankness, or the thought that this man did not, and never would, know any of those who played a part in his story, or whether it was all these things together, something loosened Pierre's tongue. In the past, success relied heavily on whether an entrepreneur could move an offline experience online better than someone else.
Books are the storehouse of language, and any child, whether deaf or not, if he has his attention attracted in any way to printed pages, must learn. It was already dark, and Pierre could not make out whether the expression of Prince Andrew's face was angry or tender.
A quick telephone call to Jake Weller produced no further word on whether Fitzgerald had reported as summoned to Denver. The horse first, regardless of whether it was right or wrong to show fear, snorted, reared almost throwing the major, and galloped aside.
Natasha was gazing at her, but seemed afraid and in doubt whether to say all she knew or not; she seemed to feel that before those luminous eyes which penetrated into the very depths of her heart, it was impossible not to tell the whole truth which she saw. Some have questioned whether Friedman's thesis is 100 percent true, mentioning NATO air strikes against Yugoslavia as a potential exception.
I did not know whether they had come to sow a crop of winter rye, or some other kind of grain recently introduced from Iceland. Berg took the opportunity to ask, with great politeness, whether, as was rumored, the allowance of forage money to captains of companies would be doubled.
Himmler had finished the piece but still sat softly running his fingers over the strings, evidently uncertain whether to stop or to play something else. Princess Mary as she sat listening to the old men's talk and faultfinding, understood nothing of what she heard; she only wondered whether the guests had all observed her father's hostile attitude toward her.
Part of him knew the Council was stalling him for that reason, though whether they did so to hinder his efforts or to maintain the appearance of their power over him, he wasn't sure. But in the secret depths of her soul whether her engagement to Boris was a jest or an important, binding promise tormented her.
When he appeared at the door she grew flurried, evidently undecided whether to go to meet him or to wait till he came up. Prince Vasiliy sternly declaimed, looking round at his audience as if to inquire whether anyone had anything to say to the contrary.
She whipped around to see Kris standing in the doorway, holding the door open as if debating whether to enter. The strange spell left her breathing hard and confused whether she'd had a heart attack or worse.
He watched her throughout the night's activities, seeking to judge whether Manor's parting words were true. Dean hadn't had time for a discussion with Cynthia about whether to tell Edith Ship ton of the inquiry about her staying at Bird Song.
While contemplating whether Freckles would be worth having to influence the other three or not, Jackson caught sight of someone in his peripheral vision. She acted graciously with all the guests, yet he could pick up subtle nuances that affirmed whether she was speaking to someone who genuinely understood art, or a snob who merely bought it to be in vogue.
He spent some time in the music room, but was unable to concentrate, so ended up downstairs at 2:30 a.m., wondering where she could be and whether she felt lonely. “I guess I should have asked whether you meant a physical feature or personality,” Carmen clarified and then paused, thinking.
If people are going to think bad things about me, it won't matter whether I'm staying here at night or simply going out with him. Whether he used his magic to put her to sleep, or her body needed it, she instantly fell into a deep, dreamless slumber.
Without touching her, Bianca could still feel Soft's body preparing to expel the child within, whether she went to a hospital. Whether he meant she looked good or literally cool was unclear, but his smile was definitely supportive.
On all disputed points, whether commercial, religious or political, his advice was invariably sought by the foreign ministers and the Chinese alike. Hockey observed similar effects at Freiburg-though he seems doubtful whether the relationship is direct-but the influence of temperature on I + seemed reduced when the ground was covered with snow.
It should always be specially noted whether the fungi to be consumed are in a fresh and wholesome condition, otherwise they act as a poison in precisely the same way as does any other semi-putrid vegetable. Whether, as alleged by some, Waynflete fled and hid himself during the period covered by the battle of Wakefield and Edward's fist parliament in 1461, is very doubtful.
The supreme court, whether rightly or wrongly, assumed a jurisdiction of first instance over the entire province of Bengal. One or other of these types is to be found in cats of almost all breeds, whether Persian, short-haired or Manx; and there appear to be no intermediate stages between them.
In Great Britain wild cats survive only in some Scottish forests, and even there it is difficult to decide whether pure-bred specimens are extant. When Descartes complained to the authorities of this unfair treatment, 4 the only reply was an order by which all mention of the name of Cartesianism, whether favorable or adverse, was forbidden in the university.
It has been doubted whether Pericles favored this enterprise, but among its chief promoters were two of his friends, Lampoon the soothsayer and Hippocampus the architect. 9b-25a), which interrupts the comparison of the city to a ship, looks like an insertion whether by the prophet or by some other; but there is no good reason to doubt that the book is substantially the work of Ezekiel.
Whether these discourses were all uttered between the investment of Jerusalem and its fall, or were here inserted by Ezekiel or by a scribe, it is not possible to say. This account he kept back, as he himself states, in order to see from tie reception met with by the Description, whether it would be acceptable.
Nearly all southern whites (except “scalawags”), whether members of the secret societies or hot, in some way took part in the KU Flux movement. The president was for some time in doubt whether he had any right to intervene in provincial affairs, but eventually troops were despatched to La Plate.
Whether run by steam, water-power or other motive forces, has played a great part in the promotion of industry; the increase in the amount of steam horse-power employed in industrial establishments is, to a certain degree, an index to the activity of the country as regards manufactures. Its function is to examine criminal cases and to decide whether they shall be referred for trial to the lower courts or the course assists.
Whether a pouch is present or not, the young are born in an exceedingly imperfect state of development, after a very short period of gestation, and are immediately transferred by the female parent to the teats, where they remain firmly attached for a considerable time; the milk being injected into their mouths at intervals by means of a special muscle which compresses the glands. For the theological discussions whether and in what sense type fourth commandment is binding on Christians, see Decalogue.
In all this legislation one of the most hotly contested points was whether the arbitration court should be given power to lay it down that workers who were members of a trade union should be employed in preference to non-unionists. The act was strongly opposed by the government of Queensland, and the question was raised whether it was based on a true interpretation of the constitution.
The solution of the question hinges upon the interpretation of the canons, that is, upon whether they are to be taken as reflecting a recent, or as pointing to an imminent, persecution. In the latter year the government of the French Republic confided to him a mission to Rome at the moment when it was a question whether the expelled pope would return to the Vatican with or without bloodshed.
As for the Greeks, it is still an open question whether they perfected their method of laparoscopy under Etruscan influence or through the Babylonians. It was discussed in the 12th century whether this sacrament is indelible like baptism, or whether it can be repeated; and the latter view, that of Peter Lombard, prevailed.
The inspiring principle had been the defense and support of Protestantism, the question with Cromwell being whether the Christian world should be all papery.” Whether if Cromwell had survived he would have succeeded in gradually establishing legal government is a question which can never be answered.
It faded away in the great Church, and probably Census was describing Botanist circles (though Origin assumed that they were ordinary believers) when he wrote 3 of the many Christians of no repute who at the least provocation, whether within or without their temples, threw themselves about like inspired persons; while others did the same in cities or among armies in order to collect alms, roaming about cities or camps. And he who would understand what he remembers to have been said, whether in a dream or when he was awake, by the prophetic and enthusiastic nature, or what he has seen, must first recover his wits; and then he will be able to explain rationally what all 1 This misunderstanding of Acts ii.
The chief uncertainty is whether he knew Justin's Syntax, and also whether he had access to the Philosophumena of Hippolyta in their complete form. He never lost an opportunity, whether in the pulpit or on the platform, of pressing on his hearers that the greatest future for Canada lay in unity with the rest of the British Empire; and his broad statesman-like judgment made him an authority which politicians of all parties were glad to consult.
Whether this justifies Wagner's successors and imitators in showing a constant preference for passages of which not even the general outline is practicable; whether it justifies a state of things in which the normal compass of every instrument in an advanced loth-century score would appear to be about a fifth higher than any player of that instrument will admit;, whether it proves that it is artistically desirable that when there. Such matters cannot be decided off-hand by the mere fact that tremolos are characteristic of orchestras: the question is whether in individual cases they have not a special character when played by single players.
The word is still sometimes employed in this sense, as of the ship's telegraph, by means of which orders are mechanically transmitted from the navigating bridge to the engine room, but when used without qualification it usually denotes telegraphic apparatus worked by electricity, whether the signals that express the words of the message are visual, auditory or written. The corporation of Glasgow having persisted in its efforts to obtain a license, the Treasury appointed Sheriff Andrew Jameson (afterwards Lord Drywall) a special commissioner to hold a local inquiry in Glasgow to report whether the telephone service in that city was adequate and efficient and whether it was expedient to grant the corporation a license.
(3) It is doubtful whether there are any actual inscriptions which can be referred with certainty to the language of the Figures, but some other evidence seems to link them with the -CO- peoples, whose early distribution is discussed under Vols and LIGURIA. The purely selfish bond between condottieri and their employers, whether princes or republics, involved intrigues and treachery, checks and counter checks, secret terror on the one hand and treasonable practice on the other, which ended by making statecraft in Italy synonymous with perfidy.
His triumphs, whether real or imaginary, to the reverse Campaign sustained by the armies of the French directory, was Italy and expelling the foreigner, and told that he was free to choose whether he would be the first of men or the last of Italian tyrants.
Whether this surplus was real or only apparent has been much debated, but t, here is no reason to doubt its substantial reality. Notwithstanding the pontiffs' bestowal of the apostolic benediction in article Morris upon Victor Emmanuel, the attitude of the Vatican had remained so inimical as to make it doubtful whether the conclave would be held in Rome.
The rivalry between these two officials in Tunisia contributed not a little to strain Franco Italian relations, but it is doubtful whether France would have precipitated her action had not General Mens rea, Italian ambassador in London, urged his government to purchase the Tunis-Goletta railway from the English company by which it had been constructed. Lord Granville further inquired whether Italy would co-operate in pacifying the Sudan, and received an affirmative reply.
In December 1898 he convoked a diplomatic conference in Rome to discuss secret means for the repression of anarchist propaganda and crime in view of the assassination of the empress of Austria by an Italian anarchist (Zucchini), but it is doubtful whether results of practical value were achieved. He was voted guilty by the Commons; but while the Lords were disputing whether the accused peer should have bail, and whether the charges amounted to more than a misdemeanor, parliament was prorogued on the 30th of December and dissolved three weeks later.
We, from the altered modern point of view, may doubt whether Butler's curious account of the mechanism of moral psychology is a simple report of facts. Yet it is a very grave question whether the idea of God's moral government admits of being argued as pure matter of fact.
Whether he had really given any grounds for suspicion is unknown; but there is no doubt, so great was his popularity with the soldiers and such the hatred felt for Nero, that he could easily have seized the throne. Thus, he suggests that man has not eyes of a microscopic delicacy, because he would receive no great advantage from such acute organs, since though adding indefinitely to his speculative knowledge of the physical world they would 1 Yet he leaves open whether the Deity has annexed thought to matter as a faculty, or whether it rests on a distinct spiritual principle.
Locke half playfully touches on certain monsters, with respect to which it is difficult to determine whether they ought to be called men. Erasmus Darwin (Zoonotic, 17 94), though a zealous evolutionist, can hardly be said to have made any real advance on his predecessors; and, notwithstanding the fact that Goethe had the advantage of a wide knowledge of morphological facts, and a true insight into their signification, while he threw all the power of a great poet into the expression of his conceptions, it may be questioned whether he supplied the doctrine of evolution with a firmer scientific basis than it already possessed.
The fifth canon provides that those, whether clerics or laymen, who are cut off from communion in any particular province are not to be admitted thereto elsewhere. Still, examination must be had whether persons have been expelled from the congregation by any episcopal small-mindedness (µucpokxia), or contentious spirit, or such-like harshness (Emilia).
The penalties which the spiritual court could inflict, in the period between the edict of Milan and c. 854, were properly excommunication whether generally or as exclusion from the sacraments for a term of months or years or till the day of death and (in the case of clerics) suspension or deposition. (o) With or without the concurrence and goodwill of the national Church, restrictions were imposed by the State on the papal jurisdiction, whether original or appellate.
The use of the term to mean the individualized nucleated mass of living protoplasm, which, whether with or without a limiting membrane, primitively forms the proximate histological element of the body of every organism, dates from the second quarter of the i9th century. To this type of Stein having a ground-tissue pith, whether with or without internal phloem, is given the name siphonostele to distinguish it from the solid apostle characteristic of the root, the first-formed portion of the stem, and in the more primitive Pteridophytes, of the whole of the axis.
Whether the leaf is brightly or only moderately illuminated, the same relative proportions of the total energy absorbed are devoted to the purposes of composition and construction respectively. It is not certain either whether the action of the chlorophyll apparatus is confined to the manufacture of carbohydrates or whether it is concerned, and if so how far, with the construction of proteins also.
It is not quite certain whether a true pepsin exists in plants, but many trains have been discovered, and one form of resin, at least, is very widespread. For instance, a Fungus epidemic is impossible unless the climatic conditions are such as to favor the dispersal and germination of the spores; and when plants are killed off owing to the supersaturation of the soil with water, it is by no means obvious whether the excess of water and dissolved materials, or the exclusion of oxygen from the root-hairs, or the lowering of the temperature, or the accumulation of foul products of decomposition should be put into the foreground.
The root is an axis which never bears either leaves or the proper reproductive organs (whether sexual or asexual) of the plant. The Cretaceous genus Felicia reaches as far north as China, but whether it is starting or returning must as inothercases be left an open question.
Different species of organisms come to perfection in different climates; and it may be stated as a general rule that a species, whether of plant or animal, once established at one point, would spread over the whole zone of the climate congenial to it unless some barrier were interposed to its progress. After completing these reductions, Airy made inquiries, before engaging in any theoretical investigation in connection with them, whether any other mathematician was pursuing the subject, and learning that Hansen had taken it in hand under the patronage of the king of Denmark, but that, owing to the death of the king and the consequent lack of funds, there was danger of his being compelled to abandon it, he applied to the admiralty on Hansen's behalf for the necessary sum.
Whether this last account, or that given by Grenades and in the Syntax of Hippolyta, represents the original system of Basil ides, has been the subject of a long controversy. The female is a segmented, worm like creature, spending her whole life within the body of the bee, wasp or bug on which she is parasitic.
The first of these, based on the English model, are the courts of the elected justices of the peace, with jurisdiction over petty causes, whether civil or criminal; the second, based on the French model, are the ordinary tribunals of nominated judges, sitting with or without a jury to hear important cases. Thus, the cultivators, whether noble or peasant, have not profited much from the change in their economic circumstances brought about by the social emancipation of 1861.
In the article on Railways in the Supplement to the Encyclopaedia Britannica, published in 1824, it is said: “It will appear that this species of inland carriage is principally applicable where trade is considerable and the length of conveyance short; and is chiefly useful, therefore, in transporting the mineral produce of the kingdom from the mines to the nearest land or water communication, whether sea, river or canal. This classification is based partly upon special conditions of service, which make some articles more economical to carry than others (with particular reference to whether the goods are offered to the companies in car-loads or in small parcels), but chiefly with regard to the commercial value of the article, and its consequent ability to bear a high charge or a low one.
Whether the intelligence and efficiency of the officials charged by the state with the handling of its railway system will be sufficient to make them act in the interest of the public as fully as do the managers of private corporations, is a question whose answer can only be determined by actual experience in each case. It enacted that published rates should not be changed except on thirty days' notice, whether the change involved an increase or a decrease, and it required annual reports to be made under oath, penalties being prescribed for failure to comply with the Commission's requests for information.
Although this fact will not in itself make the companies liable to any process of reorganization similar to that following insolvency and foreclosure of the American railway, it is probable that reorganization of some sort must nevertheless take place in Great Britain, and it may well be questioned whether the position of the transportation system of that country would not have been better if it had been built up and projected on the experience gained by actual earlier losses, as in the United States. British railways also undertake the collection and delivery of freight, in addition to transporting it, and thus an extensive range of vans and wagons, whether drawn by horses or mechanically propelled, must be provided in connection with an important station.
This maximum rate depends upon the kind of coal used, whether small, friable, bituminous or hard, upon the thickness of the fire, and upon the correct design and setting of the blast-pipe. Compound locomotives have been built by various designers, but opinion is still uncertain whether any commercial economy is obtained by their use.
This minimum was at first fixed at 50%, but on and after the 1st of August 1906 it was raised to 75%, with the result that soon after that date practically all the rolling stock of American railways, whether passenger or freight, was provided with compressed air brakes. Whether further study of the scripts of these writers confirms this hypothesis, it cannot fail to throw light on the nature of the intelligence involved.
The word holiness (codes) in primitive Hebrew usage partook of the nature of taboo, and came to be applied to whatever, whether thing or person, stood in close relation to deity and belonged to him, and could not, therefore, be used or treated like other objects not so related, and so was separated or stood apart. The text of the notice of the third Cadmus of Miles in Sundas is unsatisfactory; and it is uncertain whether he is to be explained in the same way, or whether he was an historical personage, of whom all further record is lost.
Whether innocent or guilty, however, her fate caused no regrets and her misfortunes did not raise a single champion or defender. He constructed a map of as many as 576 of these lines, the principal of which he denoted by the letters of the alphabet from A to G; and by ascertaining their refractive indices he determined that their relative positions are constant, whether in spectra produced by the direct rays of the sun, or by the reflected light of the moon and planets.
Here, on the 2nd of June 1567, whether by premeditated treachery or in a sudden brawl is uncertain, he was slain by the MacDonnell, and was buried at Glen arm. This increased his anxiety to temporize, which he did with signal success for more than two years, making The grave doubt as to the paternity of Matthew involved a doubt whether the great earl of Tyrone and his equally famous nephew Owen Roe had in fact any O'Neill blood in their veins.
The total thermal effect, too, which is associated with the transformation, must be the same, whether the transformation is conducted directly or indirectly (Hess's Law of Constant Heat Sums), since the thermal effect depends only on the intrinsic energies of the initial and final systems.
