THH3 R1CYODE LEG.
The Leg of Persistent Riders Changes
(New York Journal.)
The human leg Is rapidly assuming a
now shape, thanks to the bicycle. Or?
dinarily changes in the physiognomy
of men when they .have come at all,
have come gradually. \V? orlgninlly
thad all sorts of extra appliances, ac?
cording to the scientists. Their disap?
pearance tine after nnolher caused man
to adapt himself to new conditions.
But It took hundreds, frequently thou?
sands of years for these changes to
The bicycle leg, on the ?other hand, has
come in less than ten year*. With the
bulk of the people the bicycle ieg has
not reached as yet an ndv.mo?d stage.
But with steady riders, and especially
?with racing men. it has reaohed a point
that transforms tho shape entirely.
The next generation, according to all
precedents, will be born with a leg as
different .from the leg with which the
generation of to-day came into the
?world as It is possible to Imagine.
Professor John Atkinson, the "wizard
tooncsettor." who has been setting the
town by the ears since his arrival from
England by his wonderful cur;s, has
given close attention to the bicycle leg.
Professor Atkinson Is an export anato?
mist. It Is his intimate knuwDdgo of
the human frame that enables hl.h to
work the wonders that he does, in
speaking- of the phenomenon; lie said
I '?The thigh and calf in the human leg
ha?, in the case of persistent bicycle
riders, and especially with racing men,
completely changed In shape. The long
muscles above the knee has b:-en de?
veloped abnormally until It appears to
?bean entirely new formation. Thl.o mus?
cle extends from the knee on the upper
inside of the leg almost to the groin.
Anyone may notice it by merely glanc?
ing at the leg of a racing 4>lcyc1lst. The
difference between I the phape of the leg
of such a man and the ordinary shape
will be seen to be startling. Another
new muscle development bus come In
the calf. Here the big outer muscle I?
so pronounced that In many men it
looks llkp a deformity. In a compara?
tively feav years a calf like this will be
the normal calf; let us say In a gene
nation or two. If the present bicycle
craze lasts as It promises.
"But the most striking change will
come In the bicycle foot. Fifty years
more of the wheel will make the Cau?
casian race walk as straight a.;i the In?
dian. We will cease'to toe out. Already
the change has come, but naturally the
s'vidences of it are less pronounced so
far, thin the change In the upper part
of the 'leg. In fhe care of ithe foot the
change is In the "bony and cartilaginous
structure of the ankle. Such changes
come slower than muscular changes,
but once they manifest themselves they
come to stay.
"And, as to to?ing In, or r.ieher not
toeing out, that will certainly be a dis?
tinct gain. Our present manner of walk?
ing is entirely artificial. Nature never
intended that we should toe uu1:. Man
did that In attempting to get what he
considers a military walk. Turning the
toes nut throws'the body out of the line
of the center of gravity. It weakens the
knees. If the bicycle did nothing but
bring us back t? the natural way of
walking it would be a sulliclent boon."
So the new leg need frighten no one,
even if it is not as hands.me a.s> the obi.
PRiEOAUT'IONS AGAINST EARTH?
In the year lSf.7 there occurred a ter?
rible earthquake in Italy, which de?
stroyed several villages and killed 10,
000 human beings. A full account of
this disaster may be found in a book
by Robert Mallet, who went from place
to place and fully studied the phenom?
ena exhibited. Ho writes "f the catas?
trophe as "an appalling mass of human
misery, almost the whole of which was
preventable by the exercise of proper
care In choice of methods of house con?
struction in the earthquake region, and
future repetitions of which might thus
be completely avoided.'' It is curious
to note that Prof. Milne, the leading
earthquake authority to-day, is saying
exactly the same thing with regard to
the recent earthquake in Assam, by
which 3,500 lives were lost and an enor?
mous amount of property destroyed.
Ho points out that Japan has suffered
from far more severe earthquakes; bui
that. profiting by experience and
guided by experiment, the engineers
1 there, with their European colleagues,
have gradually departed from the ster?
eotyped system of building construc?
tion in vogue In other countries. The
result Is that new buildings resist
earthquake shock, while the old ones
are gradually disappearing. The wise
Japanese spend a large ?um annually
to assists .a committee in investigat?
ing earthquake phenomena, a profes?
sor Is employed at their university to
lecture upon the best methods of build?
ing construction In earthquake dis?
tricts, and they have sent a special
commissioner to Assam to report upon
the recent earthquake there. Prof.
Milne urges the Government of India
to take a lesson from Japan.
