TABLE 3. 1st. The percentage of times of occurrence of superiority of temperature on the left side is greater at the lower of the two temperatures by 7.2829. 2nd. The percentage of times of occurrence of superiority of temperature on the right side is greater at the lower of the two temperatures by 1:4005. 3rd. The percentage of times of occurrence of equality of temperature of the two sides is greater at the higher of the two temperatures by 8.6834. 4th. Omitting the cases of equality of temperature, the left side gains and the right side loses 6.8068 per cent. at the lower of the two temperatures. TABLE 4. 1st. The percentage of times of occurrence of superiority of temperature on the left side is greater at the higher of the two temperatures by 8.8294. 2nd. The percentage of times of occurrence of superiority of temperature on the right side is greater at the lower of the two temperatures by 20.8514. 3rd. The percentage of times of occurrence of equality of temperature of the two sides is greater at the higher of the two temperatures by 12.022. 4th. Omitting the cases of equality of temperature, the left side loses and the right side gains 16.2991 per cent., at the lower of the two temperatures. Comparing together the results obtained from the four tables given above, we find them to be, in a great measure, contradictory of each other. In only one respect do all four sets of observations agree, namely, in the existence of the greater percentage of equality of temperature at the higher temperature. Tables 1, 2, and 3, agree in showing the greater percentage of superiority of temperature on the left side at the lower temperature; but in Table 4 the greater percentage of this condition is found, on the contrary, at the higher temperature. In Tables 2, 3, and 4, the greater percentage of superiority of temperature on the right side is found at the lower temperature; but in Table 1 the greater percentage of this condition occurs at the higher temperature. In Tables 1, 2, and 3, the percentage of left superiority increases, and that of right superiority diminishes, relatively to each other, at the lower temperature,* while in Table 4 the reverse occurs, right superiority gaining and left superiority losing, at the lower temperature. In the following table the apportionment of the higher percentages of the three conditions to the two tenperatures, in the four tables, is shown : * In Table 2 the difference at the two temperatures is so slight that it may be disregarded. No certain connection can, therefore, be traced in our tables, by the method of analysis pursued, between frequency of occurrence of superiority of temperature on either side, and the degree of absolute temperature of the parts examined; but a relation between absolute temperature and the frequency of occurrence of equality of temperature of the two sides would appear to exist, the greater percentage of equality being found at the higher absolute temperature. Passing, in the next place, to the second of our two principal methods of analysis, namely, that which deals with the average absolute temperatures found with the conditions of right and left superiority of temperature and of equality of temperature, respectively, we obtain the following results from our tables : ANALYSIS OF TABLES 1, 2, 3, AND 4.
