THE K1UIITAXD THE LEFT.
WHY IS THE RIGHT HAND USED
IN PREFERENCE TO THE LEFT?
Opinion of teamed Men on ! Habits
of the A nclwite Evidences TVM WrUlaj
Was Don with Either Hai.d Charles
Bsula'a Support of Ambidexterity.
Every little custom or peculiarity has a
history attached to it; and it would be ear
prising. therefore, if no curious a problem aa
the general m of the right hand In prefer
ence to the left had ssonped notice. It ia, as a
matter of fact, an old subject, and one that
baa furnUbed acope for a fat deal of wild
theorizing. Rven the derivation of tba term
"left" has been a notirco of much controversy
Archbishop Trench says the "left band is ao
called because it is left unemployed ao much.
In tbiit view bert.ie not receive much tup
port, imleeil, conclusion has been sturdily
The o.uettiD as to uet her our ancestors
were whit we call "dexter" banded may be
answered emphatically in the affirmative.
All are agreed on thin point. But were the
aucieiit Hebrews a left hitnded peoplel Dr
Kilenmeycr has given an interesting and
lwirn.Nl lecture to prove that they were.
Most of the Aryan people write from the
left to the ri'bt of the sheet of paper, and in
their books the lines run in the same direc
tion. Most of the Semitic people, on the con
trary, write from riht to left. Instead of
regarding this essential difference as a mere
characteriHtic of habit, kept up by that rev
erence for traditiou which ia deeply rooted In
the Semitic mind, Dr Grlenmeyer think
that the direction tnken by the band of a
Semitic scrilie was due to physiological cause
namely, that the left hand was the better
of the two and Insists that the writers of
the Old Testament, and probably the early
Talmudists after them, naturally wrote with
their left hands, and would have found it dif
ficult, if not inipowihle, to write with the
other hand. In- Erlenmeyer says be has
found striking confirmation of the theory in
the Talmud, and cites a passage which insists
that certain sieciil prayers and Inscriptions
are always to I written with the right band
and not with the left. As the execution of
this exceptional work was difficult, and re
quired tune and patience. It is Implied that
tne proce-x of writing with the right hand
was a d-1-.irture from the ordinary method
then in vone.
History, however n was pointed out soon
after the publication of the doctor's lecture
does not support this ingenious theory. The
most ancient forms of Semitic letters within
our reach are the Phoenician characters of
the Uoahlto stone, which characters date
from about tbe year BOO B. C. The Inscrip
tion in this Instance reads from left to right,
as we do in the present day A learned cor
ner nb'it of The British Medical Journal
state that the practice of writing from right
lo left came into use about the time of Kzra,
when probably tbe square form of the He
brew characters beznu "The earliest (ireek
inscriptions, nearlv allied with the Pho
nu-iaii, are," he nli!, "sometimes written
from rtbt to I. it others from left to right.
Others, ;in, show iow the difference be
tween the two method was bridged over by
the immediate practice of writing alter
natelylike an ox plowing anil, therefore,
called Boustrnpliedon writing "
Tbe net result of this interesting contro
versy seems to be that the ancient Hebrews
were approximately near Cbsrlee fteade't
ideal, namely, "either handed," or, rather
that they did not solely confine themselves to
the education of the ribt hand. But tbe
question aked nowadays is: "la the use of
Ui right hand, in preference to the left,
natural, or is it acquired f
Aristotle strongly contends that In this, as
in all other instance, the organs of tbe right
side are more powerful than tbixeon the left.
I'lato, however, ndiculee tbe idea that the
use of tbe right band is natural, and attn
butes the weKkness of the left side to the bad
habit established by nurses and mothers.
Finally, several doctors say there la no
anatomical difference in the two hands,
Herea conflict of authorities with a ven
geance! Though it Is not for us to sup In
and deride where "doctors disagree," certain
conclusions are so obvious that they will oc
cur to anybody after a little reflection. In
the first plncft, if the use of wbut we call the
"dexter" bund, In preference to tbe left, were
an "original mstiuct," all men alike would
lie rikjht bonded there could be no exception.
The tact thttt t here are exceptions proves con
clusively that the partiality lor the right haud
There serins no reason to doulit that the
left side mirfht be educate.) equally as well aa
the rii-lit. In case of accidnut, the left band
Is often made to do work that was formerly
monopolize! by the dexter hand; and the
spechil rx.-elli-n.-e which not Infrequently
churiiclerie performances under such a diffi
culty is notorious, or a schoolmaster who
was horn itbouta right hand, the following
amusing ppirojn su written:
Tuourfb of thy rlpht hand nature hath bereft

lu this parti -Liar case the dexter band
could not Imve l.'ii niK-l. but even when
it at. Ilia left hand toon lecouies a4-culomed
to its new duties.
Charles Keadu. wlio once started a long
nespaer discussion on ambidexterity, was
of opinion that mankind can, ought to and
eventually will be either handed. That it is
possible to train both hands is evident from
the story told of Sir Edwin LanXseer, who
on one occasion drew a dsr's head with one
baud while be was dratrmg a lanj.vpe with
the other Ajiiin, Professor Kdw in Morse,
of Salem, Mass., could draw simultaneously,
and that, too, before an audience, two dif
ferent object with either band; or be would
draw an object with one hand and at the
same tune write the names of the parts of
the object with the otli-r
t unuer examples of this av-bidextroua
work could Im Rtvti, iMit Uwv re not neces
sary, since In evtry day life we can see
ahuiiiUnt proof of what is possible in this
iliriition Piano pin vers nnd organists, for
inxTunce. tmve to train totu hands. Taking
tut- and mini v other circumstances under
i-onsuluratloii, there ruu be no doubt that
children could lie taught to use both bands
with equal freedom and facility, and, per
haps, ii they were left to themselves, tbe
result would lie Just the same. Hut ft is Im
perative that a child should lie taught to eat,
dress, pluy and write as quickly as possible.
Tins is patent. To teach a child to do all
these things with botb bands would take
nearly, if not quite, twice as long aa with one
hand only ; and. therefore, as a matter of ex
pediency, the latter course is generally adopt
ed, and it must be admitted that, taking all
things into consideration, it Is tbe more Judi
cious one On the ground of economy of
Mine. then. It Is extremely doubtful whether

Tbe word "hoodlum" means, at the present
day, a rough, a disorderly person. It is in
all probability derived from the German
"hudeln," to be idle, to loaf. The term buin
mr comtsi from the German buiiiuiler. an

It will relieve the poor little sufferer im

there is no mistake about it. It cures
dysentery, diarrhoea, regulates the stom

Ia no esse is the folly of violence in
medio tion more conspicuously shown by
Its fru t than in the effect upon the in tegs
tines of excessive purgation. The
stoma h and bowels are first painful y
griped then the latter is copiously, sud

far beyond tbe necessities of the case,
most unnatural, excessively debilitating.
Tbe crgans are incapacitated from re
suming: their function with normal
moderation. An astringent is resorted
to which reduces them to their former
condition of inaction . To this monstrous
and harmful absurdity, Hostetter's Stom

relaxes gently, naturally, sufficiently, it
diverts bilo from the blood into its proper

Advertising a patent medicine in the
peculiar way in which tbe proprietor of

is indeed wonderful. He authorizes all
