I feel more like a ship's sailor in a storm, with shredded sails with someone handing me a needle and thread.
I wanted to ask questions but a medic stuck a needle in my arm.
He withdrew a small case with a needle in it and several small vials.
The needle was smaller than she remembered needles being, and she steadied her breathing before plunging it into his arm.
She looked away and fumbled with the needle and thread she'd found in a sewing kit.
Once the bags were all filled Sarah removed the needle from Elisabeth's arm.
He was at Elisabeth's side before anyone realized, and tore the needle from her arm.
Katie glanced up, the needle pausing in mid air.
A nurse walked in with a needle and after that she fell asleep again.
This telegraph required six wires, and was shortly afterwards displaced by the single-needle system, still to a large extent used on railway and other less important circuits.
The singleneedle instrument is a vertical needle galvanoscope worked by a battery and reversing handle, or two " tapper " keys, the motions to right and left of one end of the index corresponding to the dashes and dots of the Morse alphabet.
If the looped lines are both in good condition and free from leakage, the current sent out on line r will be exactly equal to the current received back on line 2; and as these currents will have equal but opposite effects on the galvanometer needle, no deflection of the latter will be produced.
The galvanometer being so adjusted that a current of definite strength through one of the coils gives a definite deflection of the needle, the amount of leakage expressed in terms of the insulation resistance of the wires is given by the formula.
The poles of a piece of magnetized steel may be at once distinguished if the two ends are successively presented to the compass; that end which attracts the south pole of the compass needle (and is therefore north) may be marked for easy identification.
There came to me in this case a melody which the air had strained, and which had conversed with every leaf and needle of the wood, that portion of the sound which the elements had taken up and modulated and echoed from vale to vale.
Every little pine needle expanded and swelled with sympathy and befriended me.
"Charming!" whispered the little princess, sticking the needle into her work as if to testify that the interest and fascination of the story prevented her from going on with it.
Prince Hippolyte, who had been gazing at the vicomte for some time through his lorgnette, suddenly turned completely round toward the little princess, and having asked for a needle began tracing the Conde coat of arms on the table.
Ah, my dear friend, our divine Saviour's words, that it is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle than for a rich man to enter the Kingdom of God, are terribly true.
