It was transformed, with the strong approval of all its chief members and the consent of the rest, into a Fourierist "phalanx" in 1845.
There is a pair of large nodular sesamoids behind the metacarpo-phalangeal articulation, and a single large transversely-extended sesamoid behind the joint between the second and third phalanx, called the " navicular bone."
The bottom bone is the terminal phalanx which is inserted in the heart of the hoof.
They formed the phalanx, and were divided into 6 brigades (raEets), probably on the territorial system.
In spite of his efforts the bill was carried through all its stages by an unbroken phalanx of Liberals, Labour men, and Nationalists, showing a majority in important divisions of rio; and was only rejected by the Lords in the early months of 1913.
