"Gradually, a faint brightness seemed within the east, and the air, which have been particularly warm throughout the evening, felt cool and cold. notwithstanding there has been no sunlight but, the darkness used to be lowered, and the celebs seemed faded. The felony, which were an insignificant black mass with little form or shape, wear its ordinary point; and ever and anon a solitary watchman will be visible upon its roof, preventing to appear down upon the arrangements on the street . . . by way of and by means of the feeble mild grew superior, and the homes with their sign-boards and inscriptions stood it appears that evidently out, within the boring gray morning . . . And now, the sun's first beams got here glancing into the road; and the night's paintings, which, in its a number of phases and within the assorted fancies of the lookers-on had taken 100 shapes, wore its personal right shape - a scaffold and a gibbet . . . " (The whole Works of Charles Dickens, Harper & Brothers, ny and London, Barnaby Rudge, Vol. II, bankruptcy XIX, web page 164. ) Dickens describes an job which happens within the early morning hours, previous to dawn. because the day starts and folks begin to move approximately their enterprise and prepare to observe the striking, the hangman is prepared with the gallows.

Sample text

Absence of a single leg seems sufficient to reduce the number of spirals built. e. the even spacing of the spiral threads, are less clear. As in the case of the measure for differences between adjacent angles, distances were used to express regularity. The mean difference for all four quadrants is shown in the table. Comparison of the last control webs with the early and late experimental webs does not indicate a reduction in regularity of the spirals. However, the data and tests reported in the Table 8 are derived from mean scores.

A weight, composed of a lead bar and three cotton threads 20 mm apart, is suspended in the plane of the web to calibrate for enlargement and for direction of gravity (Fig. 1). The record is thus obtained quickly and stored readily. The experimenter may return to it in order to measure selected aspects of the pattern: data on drug effects were gathered in this manner. Measurements. In order to convert the web into numerical form representative of the pattern, two forms of measurements are made: The position of each radius is measured in degrees starting at left horizontal (0° and 360°).

This web has to be rebuilt after each prey capture Our present method of measuring and evaluating webs has intentionally neglected the individual web. Because web measurements were used to identify drug effects, and the evaluation of changes was statistical, measures of web geometry were chosen which were most common to all webs of one species. The common effect of the drug on all individuals' behavior was of interest rather than individual features. There is some indication, however, that an individual builds features into its daily pattern which distinguish it from its peers.
