The Italian iron is a hollow tube, smooth on the outside, and raised on a slender pedestal with a footstalk.

In the confusion and darkness he did in his execution not perhaps do justice to himself, or to the fertility of resource which had devised so excellent a plan. ...

There are also sand-blisters, caused by little particles of sand getting into the tire and making a swelling in it, which soon gives way.
