The information as to the other four subjects was similar in character.  One of these charts was then sent to Mr. G.C.  B——­, another to Mr. C.F.R——­, another to Miss E.W.R——­, another to Mrs. A.W——­, and the fifth to Miss M.O.P——­, students of this science—­two of them having studied it less than one year.  Each analyst was asked to make his analysis according to a definite plan, so that the results could be definitely compared.  These results are shown in the table on pages 356 and 357.

Herein is the true answer to the serious question with which we opened this chapter.  Whether or not reliable analyses can be made by the observation of physical characteristics is no longer debatable.

Such analyses are being made.
