The woman got unevenly to her feet, her faceplate staring toward the creatures. McCray heard a smothered exclamation in his suit-phones.
Herrell McCray was a navigator, which is to say, a man who has learned to trust the evidence of mathematics and instrument readings beyond the guesses of his "common sense." When Jodrell Bank, hurtling faster than light in its voyage between stars, made its regular position check, common sense was a liar. Light bore false witness.

Then the priest was summoned, and he at once, having heard the story, said there was witchcraft in it; and he proceeded to pray, and to exorcise the evil spirit in the woman. Besides this he made her be placed in a hot bath, into which he poured some holy water.
Ireland at that period was the most learned and powerful island of the West. Through all changes of European dynasties she retained her independence. From the Milesian to the Norman, no conqueror had trod her soil.16

When they had left their car-go in its right place, they went back to In-di-an-a, and Mr. Gen-try thought they had done well.
XIV军团前后勤主管，退休的少将Amrit Pal Singh说，通常在冬天来临之前的10月份就需要运输和储存约20万吨的物资，然后所谓拉达克地区就会与世隔绝。这些物资称为高级冬季储备（ASW），可支撑部队约六个月。他说：“但是，如果有额外的人员部署，则至少需要使后勤物资增加一倍。”
