Side 182 - The following presents were announced, and thanks voted to the respective donors : — FOE THE LIBRARY. From the EDITOR. — Revue Scientifique, Nos. 24-28, 1879. From the SOCIETY. — Journal of the Society of Arts, Nos. 1412-16, 1879. From the EDITOR.—" Nature,
Side 98 - The Wa-Huma, to whom the attention of ethnologists has scarcely yet been seriously directed, present some points of great anthropological interest, probably affording a solution of the difficulties connected with the constituent elements of the Bantu races in East Central Africa. Speke had already observed that the chiefs of the Bantu nations about the great lakes were always Wa-Huma, a pastoral people evidently of Galla stock, and originally immigrants from the Galla country. Since then it has been...
Side 168 - ... where the government was to a great and a growing extent a government by discussion, and where the subjects of that discussion were in some degree abstract or, as we should say, matters of principle. It was in the small republics of Greece and Italy that the chain of custom was first broken. "Liberty said, Let there be light, and, like a sunrise on the sea, Athens arose," says Shelley, and his historical philosophy is in this case far more correct than is usual with him.
Side 156 - Whereupon the king took counsel, and made two calves of gold, and said unto them, It is too much for you to go up to Jerusalem: behold thy gods, O Israel, which brought thee up out of the land of Egypt.
Side 202 - Antiquity of man as deduced from the discovery of a human skeleton during the excavations of the East and West India dock-extensions at Tilbury, north bank of the Thames.
Side 382 - ... purposes — the distinctions afforded by the study of physical characters are often so slight that it becomes necessary to take other considerations into account, among which geographical distribution and language hold an important place. I. The Ethiopian or Negroid races may be primarily divided as follows : — A. African or typical Negroes] — inhabitants of all the central portion of the African continent, from the Atlantic on the west to the Indian Ocean on the east, greatly mixed all...
Side 386 - Absolute proof of the origin of any race is, however, very difficult, if not impossible to obtain, and I know nothing to exclude the possibility of the Australians being mainly the direct descendants of a very primitive human type, from which the frizzly-haired Negroes may be an offset. This character of hair must be a specialisation, for it seems very unlikely that it was the attribute of the common ancestors of the whole human race.
Side 98 - Wa-Tusi,f are found as far south as the U-nyamezi country, are by recent observers unanimously described as a very fine race, with oval face, straight nose, small mouth, and generally speaking regular Caucasic features. Such a type is found everywhere cropping out amid the surrounding Negroid populations throughout the southern half of the continent, and the conclusion seems irresistible that it should be referred to...
Side 278 - ... females, we should take the 100 males and draft out the 7 weakest of them, and draft in the 7 strongest females. Very powerful women exist, but happily perhaps for the repose of the other sex, such gifted women are rare. Out of 1657 adult females of various ages measured at the laboratory, the strongest could only exert a squeeze of 86 Ibs. or about that of a medium man.
Side 358 - Thuremlin, it is said, takes the youth to a distance, kills him, and in some instances cuts him up, after which he restores him to life and knocks out a tooth.
