The earlier inheritance of the mat ernal instinct is worth noticing fur ther; the doll proclivity of girls is a particular instance of earlier inherit ance thereof. Doll-nursing Instinct Is not shared in the least hv nnv healthy boys, nor can they take to little household duties with the haudi nes of a girl. Hoys' earlier inheritance Is all in the way of offensive weapons, of bows, bats, balls, and noise, with a tend ency to teasing and bullying, a feat ure for which the male has been fam ous, the sufferer who was put upon being the female the weaker vessel; weaker because the males fought with one another for her; had she fought with her sisters for the males she could have been the stronger and the bigger brained.

They I 1a, J Y1 possess in common with their adults a rvi nnto tail Tifrlilon kanAn 4 l skin, but this is net a fact that every J A JL A JN ! one can verify on the insUnt. Yet tboie who have tbe care of children can easily ee for themselves tbe scar which the loss of the tail has still left on children's bodies a scar which Is curiously similar to what would ob tain after amputation of a tail.

In young babies it is very noticeable; and nurses, while wondering what purpose it serves. abuse it as a place which is difficult to wash. In older children it gradu ally becomes shallower, and in those about five or seven years old it may or may not oesnown. 'inat n marks a place where a tall formerly protruded in our ancestors there can be no doubt from its shape and its position. Other characters, however, tell the same tale oi adaptation, lne pro portion In length between the arms and legs of a baby when first born is very different to what obtains later in life. In the method of using its hands tbe baby shows to the full its descent from arboreal ancestors. When it wishes to take hold of anything, alike a glass or a flower pot, it does not, like an adult, put the hand round it, or even put the thumb inside to use as a lever. On the contrary, it places all the fingers inside, makes no use of the thumb, and clasps the rim of the Silk Neckties and Handkerchief flower pot between the fingers and the jcqaer Ware, palm of the hand. This is exactly tbe I T action which would be acquired from arboreal ancestors; in going from bough to bough they would take their hands palm first, and would strike from above downward, grasping the bough with the fingers. Such is the action of an infant picking up a cup. It is probable that from our ances tors excessive use of bough-grasping that our babies inherit a certain in ability to move the fingers with tres dora or to extend tbe hand, especially if the least degree cold. The power to extend the fingers erfect!y straight is oftentimes not obtained by children six or seven years of age. "I-UIAAIIY KAliY ON TIIi: TKKK T01" It is remarkable how much unnec essary suffering is intlictsd on infants and children because parents fail to recognize the ancestry from "ani mals," and consequently the instincts, different from those of adults, which children have inherited. Thus Dr. Louis Robinson has point ed out that as soon as children are able to shift for themselves in bed, they go to sleep on their stomachs with their legs curled up under them; and he has rightly traced this to quadru pedal ancestors. Experience shows that if mothers would only recognize this ancestry tbe mothers would have far more comfortable nights and better tempered, healthier children. Even the very manner in which babies are got off to sleep by rocking in the arms or in a cradle is an in heritance of arboreal or monkey-like ancestors, because tbe rocking is an imitation of the to-and-fro swaying of the branches, and such swaying would be the natural accompaniment of sleep with arboreal dwellers. Any rythmic motion seems to leave a marked impression on organisms. It would, therefore, be reasonable to con clude that tbe effect of thousands of years of association as in the case of rocking with sleep in arboreal dwel lers would still be found to influence children very long after arboreal life had been abandoned. Nowhere is a stage of former arbo real life, with its consequent climb ing instiuct, manifested more conspic uously than in the insane desire ot an infant to climb up stairs. As scon as crawling Is au accom plishment the climbing of stairs is at tempted, llemain on the level and crawl about rooms the child will not; it must make for the nearest stairs to climb with loud crows of delight. It Is better to let the child climb; even a fall down tbe whole flight of stairs only checks the climbing mania tem porarily, in order that the infant may loudly express its disapprobation of its own clumsiness, and may vent is an ger in howls. An instinct held so tenaciously can not be regarded as something fortui tous. Darwin considered that the tree-climbing propensity of boys was a relic of monkey ancestors, but he made no observation on the stair climbing instincts of infants. INHERIT STEALING FROM MONKEYS. Another "animal" relic which ex ists in children is an instinctive de sire for stealing, especially for steal ing fruit, which, however hard and unripe, seems to give the child pleas ure. Stealing certainly points to the time when every animal had to depend on its own exertions for what food it got, and when the readiest method of ob taining such food was to appropriate without quest on whatever it might come across. With the above another childish trait may advantageously be com parednamely, the habit of taking things to bed, especially such articles as tbe child may be attached to; but there is also a desire to take things for fear of other children obtaining them, and when a child takes off to bed such articles as a collection of olothes, Toys Our stock Is the largest.
