Most of the times, use the 3rd digit (annular finger) to touch the string at half-length, raising the left elbow somewhat.

comment Why does bowed string instrument size matter?
No : intonation is not easier on larger instruments. Intonation is easier when the length of the strings match your finger length, width and extensibility. This is precisely why there are fractional size instruments : to avoid pain and bad positions to young players and give them good habits they will have no trouble transposing on a larger instrument later on.
