Lastly, looking not to any one time, but to all time, if my theory be true, numberless intermediate varieties, linking most closely all the species of the same group together, must assuredly have existed; but the very process of natural selection constantly tends, as has been so often remarked, to exterminate the parent forms and the intermediate links. Consequently evidence of their former existence could be found only amongst fossil remains, which are preserved, as we shall in a future chapter attempt to show, in an extremely imperfect and intermittent record.
Although no graduated links of structure, fitted for gliding through the air, now connect the Galeopithecus with the other Lemuridae, yet I can see no difficulty in supposing that such links formerly existed, and that each had been formed by the same steps as in the case of the less perfectly gliding squirrels; and that each grade of structure had been useful to its possessor.
Some distance from the links. Yes, very convenient, isn't it?
Margaret had arrived at Cape Pleasant on the previous evening, and he had arranged by telephone to meet her at the end of the board-walk, which was about a mile from the links, at one o'clock, supply her with lunch, and spend the afternoon with her on the water.
Fisher did not see his friend until a fortnight later, when he found himself in the garden at the back of the clubhouse on the opposite side from the links
, a garden heavily colored and scented with sweet semitropical plants in the glow of a desert sunset.
, he fancied, made him odious to the rest of mankind.
In two days these were linked
to long- distance wires; and in eleven days a two-thousand- line switchboard was in full working trim.
Conceive his new position, for I lack words to picture it; conceive him condemned to return to that house, from the very thought of which his soul revolted, and once more to expose himself to capture on the very scene of the misdeed: conceive him linked
to the mouldy cab and the familiar cabman.
This conclusion served to link
the "Theogony" to what must have been a distinct poem, the "Catalogues of Women".
Until I have found that last link
in my chain, I must remain behind the scenes.
"This attempt, should it succeed" ("It will succeed!"), "will complete and link
together the notions, as yet disjointed, which the world entertains of African cartology"
 When he thought of men and women, it was of men and women as in the presence and under the influence of those effective natural objects, and linked
to them by many associations.
