He did not remember hearing any birds that morning, there was certainly no breeze stirring, and the only sounds were the faint movements from within the cindery cylinder
When I passed outside, however, and pressed down the levers which controlled it, I knew at once by the whishing sound that there was a slight leakage, which allowed a regurgitation of water through one of the side cylinders
The most difficult and dangerous part of the journey was accomplished at last, and it was with relief that I felt my fingers close about the lowest of the stone cylinders
The spherical cap of the small cone is of platinum, so as not to melt by the action of the cylinder
and blow-pipe, for the latter are placed upon the bottom of the iron tank in the midst of the helicoidal spiral, and the extremity of their flame will slightly touch the cap in question.
For the body he stripped a sheet of thick bark from around a big tree, and with much labor fashioned it into a cylinder
of about the right size, pinning the edges together with wooden pegs.
Roughly, it is a steel cylinder

The servants cut our bread into cones, cylinders
, parallelograms, and several other mathematical figures.
