by I'l-ofcMKor
Professor ( 'enure Lombroso , the Ital
ian scientist skilled in detecting traces
: > f abnormality , explains in tlio North
American Review the imperfections of
the loft haiulcd.
People who are more ngilo with the
left than with the right hand are most
numerous among "women , children ,
savages and criminals. " The percent
age Is about 4 per cent among men
( operatives and soldiers ) , G to 8 per
cent among women nnd about the
sumo niiiong lunntlcs.
But among criminals Professor Mar-
ro found lu per cent of the men ami 22
per cent of the women left handed.
Swindlers offered a greater perccntnp
no loss than . ' > . ' > , and murderers nnd
ravlshors only from I ) lo 10 per cent.
Professor Lombroso also discusses
the fur more complex subject of "left
Bldodnoss. " Certain people arc more
sensitive upon the left side than upon
the right. This condition has no con
nection with loft handedncss and Is
highest in lunatics , 4-1 per cent.
Parrots nro left handed , and so nre
lions. Rollot found in twenty-seven
monkeys the loft shoulder heavier than
the right.
