    To the fact...scholars-he meant the development he had was progressing his knowledge gradually through the hardships and innovative way to overcome it.He has become one of the most important scholars in the island where he was exiled and found out the ways to protect him. I t was his wisdom, the knowledge and the urge to explore more for the crisis moments. But he mentioned all the scholars, that means he wanted to mean those ACCOMPANY proved their intellegence and its practise instead of their blunt animality. They became expert of self development with different skill and activities.

    are correct about their collars-here he wanted to mean the behavior and intelligence are gradually rectified by themselves with a method of try and error.As Crusoe was very close to the animals accompanied him in the island, the collars being the behaviours and module of works were being changed by the situation and conditioned thrusted upon them.Their collars meant the behaviours of animals mentioned in the previous stanza were being unveiled to him.

    and particular turning out their toes- meant The way they wanted to prove his work . He pointed out the activities of scholars and their tool to share time and experience a midst the strong tide of lonely island where each and every corner was unknown to them.. Robinson Crusoe tried to know particular their worthiness of knowledge.
