The Growth of the Flner all.
The philosophy of the finger nails is a
most interesting study, simple though it
may appear at first sight.
It has been computed that the average
growth of the fiiwr nails is one-thirty-second
of an inch per week, or a little more
than an inch and a half per year. The
growth, however, depends to a great ex
tent upon the rate of nutrition, and during
periods of bickness it is undoubtedly re
tarded. It Is understood to grow faster in sum
mer than in winter and differs for different
lingers, being most rapid in the iniddle fin
ger and slowest in the thumb and little fin
ger. Philadelphia Times.
