can only make use of those in which at least two cases of temper 
are recorded ; they are 146 in number. I have removed all the 
cases of neutral temper, treating them as if they were non-existent, 
and dealing only with the remainder that are good or bad. We 
have next to eliminate the haphazard element. Beginning with 
Fraternities of two persons only, either of whom is just as likely to 
be good as bad tempered, there are, as we have already seen, four 
possible combinations, resulting in the proportions of 1 case of both 
good, 2 cases one good and one bad, and one case of both bad. I 
have 42 such Fraternities, and the observed facts are that in 10 
of them both are good tempered, in 20 one is good and one bad, 
and in 12 both are bad tempered. Here only a trifling and un¬ 
trustworthy difference is found between the observed a,nd the 
haphazard distribution, the other conditions having neutralised 
each other. But when we proceed to larger Fraternities the test 
becomes shrewder, and the trifling difference already observed 
becomes more marked, and is at length unmistakable. Thus the 
successive lines of Table III. show a continually increasing diverg¬ 
ence between the observed and the haphazard distribution of 
temper, as the Fraternities increase in size. A compendious com-
