I lifted the heavy wood beam that crossed their door, securing it.
I replaced the beam securing the door on my side and without a word, left the cellar.
As they neared the first turn, something glinted in the beam of Dean's flashlight.
Suddenly the beam caught a figure crouched ahead.
He stepped through the doorway and turned the beam of light on her.
The beam was swallowed by the catacombs, and it was still too dark around her to see how large the underground world was.
He turned the beam around the yard and then shut the door.
The beam of light extinguished and she felt around with trembling hands until she located the flashlight.
Turning the light back on, she pointed the beam on the area where the scream seemed to originate.
The chestnut covers considerable areas in Prigord, Limousin and Beam; resinotis trees (firs, pines, larches, &c.) form fine forests in the Vosges and The indigenous fauna include the bear, now very rare but still found in the Alps and Pyrenees, the wolf, harbouring chiefly in the Cvennes and Vosges, but in continually decreasing areas; the fox, marten, badger, weasel, otter, the beaver in the extreme south of the Rhne valley, and in the Alps the marmot; the red deer and roe deer are preserved in many of the forests, and the wild boar is found in several districts; the chamois and wild goat survive in the Pyrenees and Alps.
The operation is as follows: the paper ribbon or perforated slip is moved forward by its centre row of holes at the proper speed above the upper ends of the rods S, M; should there be no holes in the ribbon then the cranks A, A' will remain stationary, although the beam B continues to rock, since the rods S, M are pressing against the ribbon and cannot rise.
What is required is some means for localizing and directing a beam of radiation.
In the autumn of 1786 there was an encounter near the village of East Lee between about 250 adherents of Daniel Shays (many of them from Lee township) and a body of state troops under General John Paterson, wherein the Shays contingent paraded a bogus cannon (made of a yarn beam) with such effect that the state troops fled.
It is struck by a wooden beam swung on the outside, and only at the changes of the night-watches, when its deep tone may be heard in all parts of the city.
His Histoire de Beam was published at Paris in 1640.
Deflections of the suspended needle are indicated by the movement of a narrow beam of light which the mirror reflects from a lamp and focusses upon a graduated cardboard scale placed at a distance of a few feet; the angular deflection of the beam of light is, of course, twice that of the needle.
I love to weigh, to settle, to gravitate toward that which most strongly and rightfully attracts me--not hang by the beam of the scale and try to weigh less--not suppose a case, but take the case that is; to travel the only path I can, and that on which no power can resist me.
