LEFT HANDED WICKEDNESS. llc-i ilH of au UiiUMiml 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. Women , children and primitive races uniko gestures and simple movements from right to left. This Is why wom en button tholr garments In n different direction from men and why early languages , like the Arabic , are written - ton from right to Ipft. Very old chro nometers were wound from right to left , not from left to right , us at pres ent. However , Professor Lombroso hedges by. saying : "One can without dllllculty find nniong good men real left handcil- ness , as among the greatest evildoers there nre some who have not that char acteristic. I do not dream at all of say ing that all left handed people are wick ed , but that loft hniuleilness , united to many other traits , may contribute to \ form one of the worst characters among the human species. " A DISAPPOINTED MAN. lie took life too seriously. He did not choose upward. He starved from mental poverty. IIo saved his money , but starved his mind. Ills social faculties atrophied from disuse. IIo thought he could not be happy without wealth. IIo did not develop his manhood along with his business. He murdered his capacity for happi ness in getting ready for it. IIo sacrificed the friends of his youth and hail no tlmo to make new ones. IIo never learned the art of extract ing enjoyment from common things. IIo had developed a colossal power for receiving , but had never learned to give. give.He He was a victim of habit and rou tine ; he never could rise above his vo cation. Ills only enjoyment was In repeating what he had been doing all his busi ness life. Ho had never learned to enjoy ns he went along , but found that postponed happiness was n delusion. Success.
