Every foot of our late descent had to be regained in ascending the opposite side of the gorge--an operation rendered the less agreeable from the consideration that in these perpendicular episodes we did not progress a hundred yards on our journey.
Nothing but dark and fearful chasms, separated by sharp-crested and perpendicular ridges as far as the eye could reach.
It must have been about three o'clock when we reached a narrow valley, between high perpendicular
walls, situated about seventy-five fathoms deep.
Naked and unarmed, as I was, my end would have been both speedy and horrible at the hands of these cruel creatures had I had time to put my resolve into execution, but at the moment of the shriek each member of the herd turned in the direction from which the sound seemed to come, and at the same instant every particular snake-like hair upon their heads rose stiffly perpendicular
as if each had been a sentient organism looking or listening for the source or meaning of the wail.
A fall from such a height is seldom perpendicular
. The archdeacon, launched into space, fell at first head foremost, with outspread hands; then he whirled over and over many times; the wind blew him upon the roof of a house, where the unfortunate man began to break up.
Also, the house was built against the perpendicular
wall; and in the wall itself, shored by strong timbers, well drained and ventilated, we excavated two small rooms.
By means of a secondary tackle I had attached to the shears, I swung the boom to a nearly perpendicular position, then lowered the butt to the deck, where, to prevent slipping, I spiked great cleats around it.
Making this tackle fast, I took to the windlass the shears-tackle (which was connected with the end of the boom), and with a few turns had the mast perpendicular and clear.
The view, looking sheer down into the broad valley, eastward, from this great elevation--almost a perpendicular
mile--was very quaint and curious.
These four perpendicular
ranges of windows admitted air, and, the fire being kindled, heat, or smoke at least, to each of the galleries.
It was supplied with two rows of seats, perpendicular
to the direction of the train on either side of an aisle which conducted to the front and rear platforms.
Often he had to cross and recross the rushing torrent, as it wound foaming and roaring down its broken channel, or was walled by perpendicular
precipices; and imminent was the hazard of breaking the legs of the horses in the clefts and fissures of slippery rocks.
Pure translation without angular deflection of the nail within the distal tibial construct was not observed in either the parallel or perpendicular
screw orientation groups.
Dancers pirouette on one hand, their bodies perpendicular
to the floor.
Melt feeds via a crosshead to the die (not built by PTi), which is cantilevered perpendicular
to the extruder on a support built into the carriage base.
