VZL OF TIIC RIGHT HAND.
Not Due to Training, Duo U a Natural
Prof. Cunningham jointed out how
It Is old"nt that as fnr back as we can

Nltsche had examined the bones of
prehistoric rn. n from southern Pa
varla and had found that the clavicle
nnd the long bones of the right upper
limb were distinctly heavier and more
massive than the corresponding bones
'if the opposite idde. All the evidence
at our disposal roes to b:iow that rinht
liandedness Is due to a transmitted
functional pro-c nilncnce of the left
brain, and this functional pre-eminence
was net a haphazard acquisition which
had been picked up during the lifetime
of tho individual, it rested upon some
structural foundation which transmit
ted from parent to off opting. Modern
science, then, if we hav? correctly In
crpreted Prof. Cunningham's meaning,
v.'ould seem to show that there is a
distinction In nature of the right hand.
It Is indubitably the one by which
most delicate manual actions are per
formed, with one marked exception
namely, the fingering In the play of
stringed instiumer.ts which are jiayed
