Rarely if ever do the more sturdy of athletes be come actors or craters, from the fact that sensibility is absorbed as muscle is forcedly enlarged, for the blood from the brain goes to give size to the arm and chest. We see, this exemplified to theextreme in prize-fighters. Elasticity of movement is also slowed to such an extent as to retard expression, and oonss quently prevent these electric, instantaneous ﬂashes, sc absolutely needful in the higher range of elo quence, and in those keener touches of emotion in the grander dramatic roles.
