In such a context there is, of course, a third element, that of height. Surveyors
have traditionally referred to this component of a position as its elevation. One
classical method of determining elevations is spirit leveling. A level, correctly
oriented at a point on the surface of the earth, defines a line parallel to the geoid
at that point. Therefore, the elevations determined by level circuits are orthometric
; that is, they are defined by their vertical distance above the geoid as it would be
measured ...

The medium height of mercury in equilibrium with the weight of a column of air,
from the highest part of the atmosphere to the furface of the earth, is about twenty-
eight French or 29.85 English inches in the lower parts of the city of Paris; or, in
other words, the air at the furface of the earth at Paris is usually prefsed upon by a
weight equal to that of a column of mercury twenty-eight inches in height. I must
be understood in this way, in the feveral parts of this publication, when talking of

The three brethren then dragged the body of Ymir into the midst of the abyss, and
of it they made the heaven and the earth. They made the water and the sea of his
blood, the mountains of his bones, and the rocks of his teeth; the firmament they
made of his skull, and placed four dwarfs, called East, West, North, and South, to
support it at the four corners where it rested upon the earth; they tost into the air
his brains, which became clouds, and from his hair they made the herbs of the
field ...

As the Earth makes one complete revolution on its axis, in a direction from West
to East, in 24 hours, any one point of the Earth's surface must have been carried
through 360° in that time; or if we suppose a fixed meridian above the Earth, like
the brazen meridian of a globe, every part of the Equator, containing 360°, must
have passed under that meridian in 24 hours. Hence, if we divide 360 by 24, we
shall find how many degrees pass under this meridian in one hour, which will be

What you owe to Milton is not any knowledge, of which a million separate items
are still but a million of advancing steps on the same earthly level; what you owe
~— is power, that is exercise and expansion to your own latent capacity of
sympathy with the infinite, where every pulse and each separate influx is a step
upwards -—- a step ascending as upon a Jacob's ladder from earth to mysterious
altitudes above the earth. All the steps of knowledge, from first to last, carry you
farther on ...
