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.

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,
