What is OCR?

as I would like to see.
i He is wiry, and possesses unusual-grit;
hence his muscular
System and substantial frame
work are sustained, and he shows
iruch tenacity of mind and body.
1 His height and distinct outline
of features denote the motive
temperament, which accompanies
the energetic, executive, percep
tive, fact-gathering and scientific
faculties.
' He is eager for knowledge. A
Smattering of any subject will not
satisfy him. He goes to the root
of any question he studies.
Reasoning Character. He rea1
Sons about his work in a philo
sophic way, and the faculty of
fcausality gives him capacity to
Jreason from cause to effect. When
he has gathered matter for future
Yise tie then shows originality in
Futting his ideas together.
Perceptive Character. His
perceptive trend of mind gives
him a wonderful memory of
Events and enables him to keep -in
his mind's eye facts and minutia
concerning what is taking place
ar5tind him. This must have
Taided him much when writing his
"history.
Analytical Character. When
examining Woodrow Wilson's
'head, I remarked that one of the
3chief sources of his intellectual
'powef came from his phenomenal
analytical faculty, which enables
him to remember, classify and
icompare historical events. He
admitted that it was a pleasure to
him to dip down deep into the
comparison of things and classify
data on all important subjects. 1
He knows now, through this" fac
ulty, to analyze a subject with
force and clearness.
Animal Tendencies Small. He
is not a man to be carried away by
his appetites or passions. The
basilar part of his brain shows
this very distinctly. He has a re
markable control over this part of
his nature. Mr. Wilson will en
joy a visit with some intellectual
giant more than the finest dinner
the chef of the white house can
prepare .
He shows his control of mind
in his cool, collected, matter-of-fact
and businesslike way of' in
terpreting ideas and of sizing up
a situation. Few men have bet
ter mental equipment for diag
nosing facts.
Intuitive Character. Gov. Wil
son is quite intuitive in his per
ception of character, but he' may
not always trust to his intuitions.
This was one other characteristic
that I mentioned when talking
with him, and he seemed quite im
pressed with this interpretation.
When he makes an analysis of his
own mind he finds that he goes
back to his first impressions almost-invariably
and allows these
to guide his conduct.
His sympathies are n quite
strongly represented through his
large organ of benevolence. Al
though he does not alter his views
simple to agree with people"," he
is liberal-minded eriough to make
allowances for a wide latitude of
other men's minds.
I was struck with his Jarge ven
eration, Which makes him a be
liever in constitutional policies
