With a crashing bellow of rage and a sweep of his powerful tail he darted at the inoffensive head.

Proceeding from this view, the downfal of the Chaldean monarchy was prophesied by Habakkuk also, at a time when it was still developing, and was far from having attained to the zenith of its power. In the same manner, the foreknowledge of the future deliverance of Israel rises on a theological foundation, and is not at all to be considered in the same light as if e.g., the Prophet had foretold ...

Strictly, it means only the actualizing of potentiality, which may be potentiality for evil as well as for good.

Over a front of 145 miles, extending from Szczucin near the Vistula north of Tarnow, down almost to the Uzsok Pass, a fierce battle progressed between May 8 and 10, 1915. In the region of Frysztak, where the Russian line was weakest, the main German offensive was developing its strongest attack. Reenforcements were on the way, but could not arrive in time. For the moment disaster was averted by an aggressive Russian counteroffensive halfway between Krosno and Sanok, from the Besko-Jacmierz front, by which move sufficient time was gained to enable the ...
