is to strike straight out. The apparatus is connected 
with the spark-coil and the recording drum. 
The flag is jerked ; this makes a spark on the time¬ 
line. The boxer strikes, knocking down both sticks. 
Each stick makes a spark also. We thus have three

between the second and the third gives the time required 
for the fist to travel the distance between the two sticks. 
The boxer is next told that the flag will be jerked to 
the right or left in irregular order and he is to punch 
only when it goes to the left. He is thus obliged to dis¬ 
criminate and choose. Sparks are obtained as before, 
but the time between the first two dots is longer because 
two extra mental acts are included. 
It is possible to use not only men, women, children,
