INDEX

the slow moving clock had measured off the sixty hours, when she became 

too ill to be longer able to stand, and was carried off the track. 

 

The cheers for the winner were as vigorous as though a rebel fort had 

been captured, a million people emancipated from slavery, or some great 

and noble deed of honor or daring had been done; but no one thought 

of the injury which had been done the contestant. We turned away in 

disgust. 

 

The ancient Greeks and Romans amused themselves with witnessing the 

gladiatorial contests of their male slaves; but it was left for 

civilized America to introduce woman into the "ring" and make her show 

her paces on the race-course. An ungraceful figure she cuts, and a 

repulsive spectacle she presents; and worst of all is the havoc which 

she makes with her health. At the very time that these four female 

pedestrians were making their disgraceful exhibit in Boston, in another 

part of the same city lay a helpless invalid who was once as noted a 

"female walkist" as any of them, made hopelessly ill by the same 

disregard of the plainest laws of nature. 

 

The Male and the Female Brain.--But there are other important physical 

differences to which we must call attention. Man possesses a larger 

brain than woman, but she makes up the deficiency in size by superior 

fineness in quality. The female brain differs from the masculine organ 

of mentality in other particulars so marked that one who has given the 

subject attention can determine with perfect ease the probable sex of 

the owner of almost any skull which might be presented to him. This 

difference in the conformation of the skull is undoubtedly due to a 

difference in mental character, which, in turn, depends upon a 

difference in cerebral development. Faculties which are generally 

largely developed in one are usually smaller in the other, and the 

reverse. 

 

Vital Organs of Man and Woman.--The anatomist also observes an 

interesting difference in the size of the various vital organs. For 

example, while a woman has a heart proportionally smaller than the same 

organ in man, she has a larger liver. Thus, while less well fitted for 

severe physical exertion by less circulatory power, she has superior 

excretory powers. 

 

Woman Less Muscular, More Enduring.--This peculiarity of structure is 

perfectly harmonious with the fact which experience has established 

so often as to make the matter no longer a question, that woman is less 

fitted for severe muscular exertion than man, but possesses in a 

superior degree the quality known as endurance. With a less robust frame, 

a more delicately organized constitution, she will endure for months 

what would kill a robust man in as many weeks. More perfect elimination 

of the wastes of the body secures a higher grade of vitality. On no 

other hypothesis could we account for the marvelous endurance of the 

feminine part of the civilized portion of the human race, ground down 

under the heel of fashion for ages, "stayed," "corseted," "laced," and 

thereby distorted and deformed in a manner that would be fatal to almost
