PRIMITIVE CONDITIONS RE ECHOING IN SPEECH.  By the manner in which people make assertions in their intercourse we often recognise an echo of the times when they were more conversant with weapons than anything else; sometimes they handle their assertions like sharpshooters using their arms, sometimes we think we hear the whizz and clash of swords, and with some men an assertion crashes down like a stout cudgel.  Women, on the contrary, speak like beings who for thousands of years have sat at the loom, plied the needle, or played the child with children.
