Thirst grew intolerable and there were ravings for the water which the guards passed in between the bars, not from feelings of mercy, but only to witness in ghoulish glee the added struggles for impossible relief.

Página 217 - Lines 2/4-inch apart are sufficient to guide the eye. 21. Make curves with much broader lines than the co-ordinate ruling so that the curves may be clearly distinguished from the background. 22. Whenever possible have a vertical line of the co-ordinate ruling for each point plotted on a curve so that the vertical lines may show the frequency of the data observations. 23. If there are not too many curves drawn in one field it is desirable to show at the top of the chart the figures representing the...

Página 216 - For curves drawn on arithmetically ruled paper, the vertical scale, whenever, possible, should be so selected that the zero line will show on the chart. 14. The zero line of the vertical scale for a curve should be a much broader line than the average co-ordinate lines. 15. If the zero line of the vertical scale cannot be shown at the bottom of a curve chart, the bottom line should be a slightly wavy line indicating that the field has been broken off and does not reach to zero.
