Human Chin is Sign of Character. GROWN ERECT SINCE MAN GAVE UP BROWSING ON GREEN STUFF. [Newspaper Article] — Hawthorn, Kew, Camberwell Citizen — 8 May 1914
Humran CMp is Sign of Character. GROWN ERECT SINCE MAN GAVE UP BROWSING ON GREEN STUIF. The question is asked by an emi nent professor, "(f what use is a chin ?" and a well-known doctor supplies an erpulnation to the pro Lessor's contention that whereas pri; mitive men had no chi s how is it that the moderns have-the bon3 lprojection below the nouth 6n lth front of the lower jaw'. The doctor says that all animals that browse on grass and herbage have no chin at all. Their teeth slant forward to allow them to reach the things easily that would otherwise be beyond their reach. The moment that man gave up browsing on green things and be cams less and less an animial his teeth grew erect, and his jaw hadc to accommodate itself to erect teeth. Erect teeth prove man to be far removed from the rumiaants, and, thereflre, a man with a well-mark ed jaw is farther removed from the ruminants than a man without. And that is why we are ind.~ned to regard a man who is wirbout a chin as possessing ...

To hold one'= breath for any length 'o1' ime ndied tiiniing, for it is surprising how brief ?.period the -ordinary person can do. so without suffering inconvenience. In deed, it is one of those interesting things concerning ourselves we know very little about, yet it was .no doubt due-to the- development of this faculty that a French swim ming professor was able to create a world's record by remaining under water for'six and a half min utes. Yet it is a habit one can culti .vate, and it is not long ago that a gentleman wrote to a scientific peper that he had trained himself to- such a pitch that he could hold his breath for eight and a .quai:ter iiliiutes if he had pre 'iouisly taken several deep respira tions. There are times when one is glad to hold his breath, and occasions wheil it is of vital importance. TIake, for instance, cases of " ap pa'ently drowned" persons.
