In this experiment a marked and rapid rise of temperature ensued, amounting at the close of the experiment to 0.5° C. above the starting point. The comments made upon 17th Experiment are equally applicable to the present case.

In the above experiment the initial temperature remained unaffected during seven minutes' muscular action. During five minutes subsequent repose the temperature fell 0·014° C.

In this case, for the first six minutes of contractions, the temperature was unaffected, but in the seventh minute a fall of 0.014o.C. took place. During six and a half minutes' repose following the contractions the temperature fluctuated about the starting point, with an equal range above and below the latter of 0.0211° C.

In this experiment, during eight minutes' contractions, the temperature oscillated about the zero, with an equal range above and below this point of 0.0281° C. Eight minutes of repose, following the contractions, showed no change, the fluctuation continuing with the same limits as before.

In this experiment the rise was probably in great part due to an elevation of the general thermal level, such as we have before considered in 17th and 19th Experiments. There was in this case no observation of the temperature after the close of the contractions,

We will now analyse the thirty-two experiments thus far given ; and to this end, we will first divide them into eight classes, as follows, giving the numbers and percentages of cases belonging to each class, and also designating the particular experiments in which they are found :
