There Is a tradition that no man or

accepted mark of brains.
Intellect dwells not in the overhanging

nave Been cases where persons of great
Intellectual superiority have had the brow
almost inclined to overhang in lis in

lines are those that run straight across it,
evidently seaming It deeply.
These lines are caused by various moods,
