  1. " Maximilian," said he, without raising his eyes, " your mother asks for you." I wished to question him, but he motioned me away, and approached a window as if to look out. I entered my mother's room, and found her reclining on the sofa with her eyes closed, while one arm hung motionless by her side.

    The method of marking pronunciations here employed is either (1) by marking the syllable on which the accent falls, or (2) by a simple system of transliteration, to which the following is the Key:—

    ā, as in fate, or in bare. ä, as in alms, Fr. âme, Ger. Bahn = á of Indian names. a˙, the same sound short or medium, as in Fr. bal, Ger. Mann. a, as in fat. a¨, as in fall. a, obscure, as in rural, similar to u in but, ė in her: common in Indian names. ē, as in me = i in machine. e, as in met. ė, as in her. ī, as in pine, or as ei in Ger. mein. i, as in pin, also used for the short sound corresponding to ē, as in French and Italian words. eu, a long sound as in Fr. jeûne = Ger. long ö, as in Söhne, Göthe (Goethe). eu, corresponding sound short or medium, as in Fr. peu = Ger. öshort. ō, as in note, moan. o, as in not, soft—that is, short or medium. ö, as in move, two. ū as in tube. u, as in tub: similar to ė and also to a. u¨, as in bull. ü, as in Sc. abune = Fr. û as in dû, Ger. ü long as in grün, Bühne. u˙, the corresponding short or medium sound, as in Fr. but, Ger. Müller. oi, as in oil. ou, as in pound; or as au in Ger. Haus.

    Of the consonants, b, d, f, h, j, k, l, m, n, ng, p, sh, t, v, z, always have their common English sounds, when used to transliterate foreign words. The letter c is not used by itself in re-writing for pronunciation, s or kbeing used instead. The only consonantal symbols, therefore, that require explanation are the following:— ch is always as in rich. d, nearly as th in this = Sp. d in Madrid, &c. g is always hard, as in go. h represents the guttural in Scotch loch, Ger. nach, also other similar gutturals. n˙, Fr. nasal n as in bon. r represents both English r, and rin foreign words, which is generally much more strongly trilled. s, always as in so. th, as th in thin. th, as th in this. w always consonantal, as in we. x = ks, which are used instead. y always consonantal, as in yea (Fr. lignewould be re-written lēny). zh, as s in pleasure = Fr. j.

    Anat´omy, in the literal sense, means simply a cutting up, but is now generally applied both to the art of dissecting or artificially separating the different parts of an organized body (vegetable or animal) with a view to discover their situation, structure, and economy; and to the science which treats of the internal structure of organized bodies. By means of the dissection of the human body the surgeon and physician acquire the knowledge of the geography of the territory in which all their professional operations are carried on. Comparative anatomy is the science which compares the anatomy of different classes or species of animals, as that of man with quadrupeds, or that of quadrupeds with fishes. The anatomy of an animal may be studied from various standpoints: with relation to the succession of forms which it exhibits from its first stage to its adult form (developmental or embryotical anatomy); with reference to the general properties and structure of the tissues or textures...

    Archbishop (ärch-), a chief bishop, or bishop over other bishops; a metropolitan prelate. The establishment of this dignity is to be traced up to an early period of Christianity, when the bishops and inferior clergy met in the capitals to deliberate on spiritual affairs, and the bishop of the city where the meeting was held presided. In England there are two archbishops—those of Canterbury and York; the former styled Primate of all England, the latter Primate of England. The Archbishop of Canterbury is the first peer of the realm, having precedence before all great officers of the Crown and all dukes not of royal birth. He crowns the sovereign, and when he is invested with his archbishopric he is said to be enthroned. He can grant special licences to marry at any time or place, and can confer degrees otherwise to be obtained only from the universities. He is addressed by the titles of your grace and most reverend father in God, and writes himself by divine providence, while the Arch...

    The conquests of the Moors introduced a fresh style of architecture into Europe after the eighth century—the Moorish or Saracenic. This style accompanied the spread of Mahommedanism after its rise in Arabia in the seventh century. The edifices erected by the Moors and Saracens in Spain, Egypt, and Turkey are distinguished, among other things, by a peculiar form of the arch, which forms a curve constituting more than half a circle or ellipse. A peculiar flowery decoration, called arabesque, is a common ornament of this style, of which the building called the Alhambra (q.v.) is perhaps the chief glory. The Germans were unacquainted with architecture until the time of Charlemagne. He introduced into Germany the Byzantine and Romanesque styles. Afterwards the Moorish or Arabian style had some influence upon that of the Western nations, and thus originated the mixed style which maintained itself till the middle of the thirteenth century. Then began the modern Gothic style, which grew up...

    Some of the largest rivers of Asia flow northward to the Arctic Ocean—the Obi, the Yenisei, and the Lena. The Hoang-Ho and Yang-tse, and the Amoor, are the chief of those which flow into the Pacific. The Ganges, Brahmaputra, Irawadi, and Indus flow into the Indian Ocean. The Persian Gulf receives the united waters of the Euphrates and the Tigris. There are several systems of inland drainage, large rivers falling into lakes which have no outlet. The largest lake of Asia (partly also European) is the Caspian Sea, which receives the Kur from the Caucasus (with its tributary the Aras from Armenia), and the Sefid Rud and other streams from Persia (besides the Volga from European Russia, and the Ural, which is partly European, partly Asiatic). The Caspian lies in the centre of a great depression, being 83 feet below the level of the Sea of Azov. East from the Caspian is the Sea of Aral, which, like the Caspian, has no outlet, and is fed by the Rivers Amu-Darya (Oxus) and Syr-Darya. Still...
