than liquor to ruin boys. When
you bave arraigned before you boys
hopelessly deaf through the excessive use ot cigarettes, boys who have
stolen their sister's earnings, boys
who absolutely refuse to work, who
do nothing but gamble and steal,
you can not help seeing that there
is some direct cause, and a great
deal of this boyhood crime is, in
my mind, easy to face to the deadly cigarette. There is something in
the poison of the cigarette that
seems to get into the system of the
boy and to destroy all moral fibre."

Authorities, say it is not the
smoking of cigarettes, in thc sense
that a cigar is smoked, that inflicts
the disastrous results, but the inhalation ofthe smoke through the
nasals and pulmonary organs, a habit in cigarette smoking universally
tollowecLby ii-iveterates; and every
cigarette smoker becomes an inveterate if he is nol strong-minded
enough to resist- the exhilarating
and narcotic influences resulting
from inhalation and stops it.���O.

The French ethnologist, Professor F
Regnuult, hns mnde speeinl studies in the
far-oast in regard to the ability of the
Hindoos to make useof their foetus auxiliaries of their hands. This ability Is particularly noticeable when ono watches
Hindoo tradesmen at their work. The
carpenter employs his feet as a vise and as
��� gauge; tbe shoemaker holds the shoe
between his feet, leaving both his hands
free to work upon It; the Hindoo butnhei
holds n knife between the big and the second too and outs his meat by drawing il
amies the knife and pressing lt tlowt
Willi both hands. Tho help of tbo feet is
mist valuable In weaving, and it is a
wt.ndorful thing to us to see n Hindoo
artisan uso both his hands and his feet ln
Handling his loom. Hegnault also ob
served a child climbing a tree nnd grasping tho branches of-, the troo between ths
flrst two toes of either foot whenever a
bold ooiitld thus be secured.
This collaboration of tho feet with tho
hands, it would seem, Is tho result of
sevoral changes in tho physical development which the Hindoo race hns under
gone in the course of time throngh outward agencies. Their hip joiuls nro much
froer nnd moro limber than ours nnd will
permit them to squat on the ground nnd
ot tho same time draw the feet so near
to t!:eir hands that thuy can. grasp with
Ihcir feet the work in hand und hold lt
with "some expense of strength. T'he ankle
joint is ulso limber and works freely, and
iho big tos is more developed and can bo
moved by them at will ns rt-gnrds Its iirid-
Ing and stretching, its snpuruling f'oin
and approaching toward the second toe.
The normal foot of the Hindoo shows r
lurgo space between the big too and the
second This, however, is duo solely to
their wearing sandals, which aro hold in
place by a wooden peg plneod between
these two toes Tlie constant museul.-u
