EDUCATION OF THE TOES. — Japanese,
almost quadrumanal, as from continued
practice they use their toes nearly as readily
they are, in our stiff leather shoes, we have
scarcely any will or power over them. But
their hands. We have often seen chisels
while the toes guided the cutting edge in
turning beautiful forms in a lathe, in Con-
and fingers laboring in concert. It is there-
fore positively certain the toes may be edu-
cated to act with rapid movements. By
practice they become obedient to volition,
act just as millions of mechanics in those
toes through hundreds of Asiatic genera-
tions. So much for theoretical science.
