Attack Their Victims.
We are in the habit of seeing la books
of travel and sport very startling illus
trations of the attitudes wild animals
assume when charging their human ag
gressors attitudes which, in the mala
and moat essential point, are most In
correct For instance, the tiger has the
credit of smashing in his victim's skull
with a sledge-hammer-like blow of his
fore-paw. The elephant is generally de
picted coming down like a locomotive,
with his' proboscis extended to its full
length; the bison and buffalo charging
from a distance ot many yards, with
their heads and horns lowered; and our
ursine friends standing upon their hind
legs, always exposing the fatal white
horseshoe on their hearts most conven
iently. I should be glad, therefore, to
hear the opinions ot some of your cor
respondents, who have shot these larger

claws. The relative to whom I alluded
was seized in a similar manner, and
three friends ot mine who have been
mauled by tigers, one and by a lion, all
described the animal knocking them over
by sheer force of weight before seizing
them. I think, therefore, the being
knocked over by a paw stroke Is a fal
lacy. Any one who knows any thing about
elephants must be aware that their
trunks, and particularly the tip of the
trunk, is the most delicate and sensitive
part of the animal, and that he shields

within a radius of a mile.
"I was a sorry sight when I reached
that old country mansion half hidden by
tall maples. Jumping out, I knocked at
the door and explained that I would like
to leave my machines temporarily, in
order to save them from the storm. Be

knock was ne with whom, much against
her will, I had le.t a machine on trial a

it back aftt-r repeated protestations on
her part that she did not want it You

into a house by representing that we
would leave it on trial.
"But once we got into the house we in

I requently this was very embarrasssing
to the lady of the house, and she never
forgave us for the annoyance of leaving
the machine for weeks and asking her
every other day if she wouldn't buy,
ben she had emphatically declared she
would not Now was the turn of the
young lady in the old fashioned house
to get square. And although the rain
had nearly washed the machines oat of

turned my head and beheld her pretty

Crime Is Scientific.
There is one thing which business men
may as well understand. As fast as sci
ence Invents appliances for the safety
of money or valuables, just as fast does
crime invent schemes to circumvent.
Crime is more of a science today than it
ever was. You may remember the bur
glar proof safe that was put in at Salem,
Ilia. It was the latest The inventors
not only claimed for it that it could not
be opened In the usual way, but tbey
claimed that it was so constructed as to
withstand any explosive which might be
piled up about it and touched off. This
claim seemed to invite test by the scien
tific cracksman, for one morning pieces
of this safe were found all around the
building. It had been blown into atoms.

lr, Peterson's Talk 00 Becent Investiga
tion. Recently the scientists both in Europe
and America have been giving a good
deal of attention to the conformation and
measurement of the human head or cra
niometry, as they call it . :
The studies of Dr. Frederick Peterson,
the insanity expert and specialist in nerv
ous diseases, of New York, have been
equally extensive. Their conclusions have
been reached by accurate measurements
and not by feeling bumps. Dr. Peterson
said to me:
THK FRONTAL LOBES.
"In men noted for great attainments
and intellectual capacity all the diame
ters and arcs of the skull are far above
the normal averages. In other words.
their heads are larger. In many criminals
the diameters and arcs are below the nor
mal average, and there is also great ab
normality in shape, especially in heredi
tary criminals. One side of the head may
be larger than the other, the forehead
may retreat, or there may be some other
lack of symmetry and proportion. Often
the teeth, jaws and ears are deformed.
All the higher mental faculties are loca
ted in the frontal lobes of the brain, and
these naturally have a direct proportion
to the length and bread th of the fore
head. Just back of this region are the
muscular centers and the een ters for cuta
"Directly behind the ears and a' little
above are the centers for remembering
that which is heard, and here are un
doubtedly located some of the muscular
faculties, for instance, the wonderful
memory of musical compositions, such
as was possessed by '-Blind Tom." The
memory of everything seen is stored
away in the posterior lobes of the brain;
therefore people of great perceptive
power and who remember well all their
perceptions will be found to have a large
development on the back or the head.
It has been noted that in people bom
blind this part of the head is smaller
than it should be. In contradistinction
to quack phrenology the perceptive
power is located here in place of Gall's
philoprogenitiveness and bump of ama-
tiveness. Gall . located the perceptive
power immediately over the eye, behind
which is a cavity in the bone containing
no brain. . ... - ,
. "The average circumference of an
adult man's skull is 20$ inches and of
an adult woman's 19 inches. The aver
age length of the arc from the roof ef
the nose over the top of the head to the
most prominent point on the back of the
head is in man 12 inches and in the wo
man 12J. The average length of the are
from one ear to the other over the high
est part of the. head is in a man 12 j
inches and in a woman 12$. The aver
age an tero-posterior diameter, that is
from the middle of the forehead in
straight line to the hindmost part of the
head, is .in a man 7 inches and in a wo
man 61. The average diameter throucli
the widest part of a man's 'head, from
aide to side m a straight line, is 51 inches,
and of a woman's bead 5j inches. These
are only a few of the more important
"I never made less than seventeen
measurements and three drawings of
each bead. But in the most careful
studies sometimes from SO to 130 sepa
rate area and diameters are measured.
It will be seen that the bead of a woman
is on an average smaller than that of a
man, just as her brain weighs several
ounces less. While it may be taken as a
general rule that a head of large dimen
sions is associated with unusual capa
city in some one or other direction, it is,
of course, not always the case. One can
easily imagine, or may even have met
with persons with large heads who
seemed to enjoy considerable emancipa
tion from the bonds of intellect; and one
can' readily conceive of much of their
brain substance being replaced by more
ordinary tissues or substances required
to prevent the formation of a vacuum.
PACKISQ OF THK BRaiS.
"The skull bones may be twice as
thick as usual, or there may be nn un
usual amount of fluid in the carries of
the brain and its coverings. Again, a
person with a rather small head may
have more thinking centers to the cubic
inch of brain than the other; less fat, less
water, less packing of every kind, as in
the case of Gambetta, whose brain was
rather small. The word 'packing is an
excellent one to use in this connection.
for it describes the condition perfectly
Just as delicate china or glass vessels are
packed away in sawdust, hay, etc, for
shipping, so the fragile cells containing
memories and thoughts are packed away
in an enormous quantity of substance,
known as connective tissue, which dif
fers relatively little from hay and saw
dust in structure as seen under the mi
croscope,! and which serves an equally
efficient purpose. Hence an idiot is oc
casionally, though . indeed rarely, seen
with an unusually large bead; but in the
packing of his cranium valuable struct
ures were left out by the. thoughtless
workmen, and only the hay and sawdust
"Up to the age ,of 25 the development
of a man's skull depends on his educa
tion, and, in fact, his entire environment
Subsequently the mind may develop a
great deal, but the skull will not From
the age of 25 the skull retains the same
proportion and the same dimensions, and
it is on this account that certain measure
ments of the head become useful as a
means of identification of adults. They
may change their appearance in many
respects, but cannot voluntarily alter the
shapes of their heads. M. Bertillon has
incorporated, therefore, certain skull di
ameters in his system of identification of
criminals, now much employed In
France, but as yet little In this country.
