For these rudimental organs certainly do not serve, in a lower degree, the same purposes as are served by the homologous parts which are completely developed in other species, or in the other sex. To say they are useless, is contrary to all we know of the absolute perfection and all-pervading purpose of creation ; to say they exist merely for...
الصفحة 414 - During the tumult, some neighbours came in and separated the men. While in this state of strong excitement, the mother took up her child from the cradle, where it lay playing, and in the most perfect health, never having had a moment's illness.

الصفحة 57 - When the spicula are examined through the microscope after this exposure to heat, we distinctly perceive a shut cavity within them, extending from the one point to the other ; and on the inflated part of each spiculum we observe a ragged opening, as if a portion had been driven out by the expansion of some contained fluid. In those spicula which had suffered little change of form by their incandescence, I have never failed to observe the same cavity within, extending from one end to the other, and...
الصفحة 134 - John Hunter similarly regarded it, after independent examinations of the organ, stating that " a small portion of it (the prostate) which lies behind the very beginning of the urethra, swells forward like a point, as it were, into the bladder, acting like a valve, to the mouth of the urethra.
الصفحة 58 - ... around. The beauty and novelty of such a scene in the animal kingdom long arrested my attention ; but after twenty-five minutes of constant observation, I was obliged to withdraw my eye from fatigue, without having seen the torrent for one instant change its direction, or diminish...
