Here, without the use of a battery, with no more electric current than that made by a couple of magnets, all the waves of a sound had been carried along a wire and changed back to sound at the farther end.
If a tuning-fork could be made to sing by a magnet or an electrified wire, why would it not be possible to make a musical telegraph--a telegraph with a piano key-board, so that many messages could be sent at once over a single wire?
Watching the rigging up of the barbed wire, Jerry's next adventure was an encounter with Lerumie, the return boy from Meringe, who, only that morning, on the beach embarking, had been rolled by Biddy, along with his possessions into the surf.
Jerry, scarcely aware of Lerumie's presence, was trotting past on his way aft to where Borckman, the mate, was superintending the stringing of the barbed wire to the stanchions.
Edgar took up a small wooden box, through a hole in which the wire of the runner ran.
With deft fingers she unshipped this, took it with her, reeling out the wire as she went, thus keeping, in a way, in touch with the kite.
Among the other things which I sent to Innes was over five hundred miles of double, insulated wire of a very fine gauge.
Constantly my eyes scanned the blinding waste of sand for the ricky cairn beneath which I was to find the wires leading to Pellucidar--but always was I unsuccessful.
Bring with you the three fat goats, the new sleeping mat, and the piece of copper wire
the length of a large man's forearm.
Then the person at the other end of the wire
must have plunged into something very interesting and absorbing, for Tom did not again interrupt by interjected remarks.
It's up to you, just according to how you pull the wires
I ridiculed the assumption that there was an inner world and that these wires
led downward through the earth's crust to the surface of Pellucidar.
