Tbt French ethnologist, Professor W.
Regnault, has made special studios ln the
far east la rugard to the ability of the
Hindoos to make useof their feet us auxiliaries of their hands. This ability ls particularly noticeabla When ont watches
Hindoo tradesmen at tbeir work. Tht
tarpenter employs his feet as a vise and ai
��� gauge; tbe shoemaker holds tha shoe
between his feet, leaving both his bands
(re* to work upon it; the Hindoo butcher
holds a knife lietwcen the big and the seo-
ond tot and cuts his moat by drawing it
across tht knife and pressing lt down
wilh both hands. The help of the feet is
most valuable in weaving, and lt is a
wonderful thing to us tn see a Hindoo
artisan use both his hands aud bis feet ln
handling his loom. Kegnault also ob
nrvsd a child climbing a tree and grasping the branches of 1 tha tret between tht
flrst two toes of either foot whenever a
bold could thut be secured.
This collaboration of ths feet with tht
hands, It would teem, ls the result of
several changes tn the physical des lop-
mtnt which tht Hindoo race hat under
gone In the course of time through outward agencies. Thoir hip joints are much
freer and more limber than ours and will
permit them to squat on the ground and
at tbe same time draw tbe feet to near
to thtir hands that tbey can grasp with
their feet the work ln band and hold lt
with tome expense of ttrength. The ankle
Joint It alto lim bor and workt freely, and
the big toe It more developed and can he
moved by them at will as regards Ils bending and stretching, lu saparatlng frea.
and approaching toward the second toe.
The normal foot of tht Hindoo thnwt ���
large space between the big toe and the
second This, however, Is dut solely to
their wearing sandals, whloh are held iu
place by a woodsn peg placed betneen
these two toee. The eonstanl muscular
���xeroitet practiced la holding the saudals
aaturully tends to strengthening these
toee, and the uee of the feet, being a general custom and tried even by children of
this tender age, has gradually changed the
