How His Black, Animal Nature Overcame 'theGood and Made
Him Passionate, Selfish andXruel Is Told in This Remark-
, ,' able Signed Statement.
" .
By Jessie A. Fowler.
Daughter and Successor of L. Nt
Fgwler, the 'Founder of
I V Phrenology.
' The Rev. Clarence V. T. Riche
so.n, murderer of AvtsLinnell, has
a strong melanic
dark racial type of
temperament, which
shows in his dark
hair, eyes and eye-
brows, and his
square set f a c e,
strong features and
positive lips.
He has -a strong
emotional nature.
His whole contour
o f face indicates
that his basilar
brain (or animal na
ture) lias now the ascendency ov
er his character, whatever the su
perior qualities had at an earlier

immense intuitional power. This
a person can use for a right or a
wrong motive. In his case it
would be liable to work with his
basilar qualities.!
, His ear is low set in the side of
his head,.and'if an imaginary line
were drawn from the opening of
the ear forward, it would show
great intensity of mind. All per
sohs possessing this indication
are strong in their motor power.
Tf another imaginaryline were
drawn to the center of his fore
head, between his eyes, it would
form with the horizontal line an
angel equal to 45 degrees taken
with a craniometer.
This indicates the depraved
type of head, as was shown in
Thurtell and Palmer, both mur
derers. B ut it can also be seen in
men of distinguished energy
when the moral region of the
brain is also well represented.
Generally speaking, however,
this angle in a normal head is 25
degrees, as it was in President
McKinley and Abraham Lincoln.
