i'Causes at Top
By DR. H. H. COWLEY
RE YOU nervous? Dou you sleep poorly at night, and is it an
effort for you to take the necessary amount of food? If so,
consult your family physician. Nervousness is one of the three
prime causes of insanity.
Dr. Walter M. Seward of New York, who passes upon
the mental condition of many persons in the course of his
work as an examiner in lunacy proceedings, has made a close
study of the causes leading to insanity, and places alcoholism
at the head of the list.
"Reliable statistics from all over the civilized world," he
said, "show alcoholism to be the exciting cause of insanity in from 15 to
20 per cent. of all cases-that is to say, one out of every five or sit persons
sent to the insane asylum would never have been put there were it not for
The frequency of overwork as a cause of insanity cannot be accu
rately stated in figures on account of the great difficulty of obtaining accu
rate data for statistics, but Dr. Seward expressed the opinion that if such
figares could be obtained they would be large. Insanity brought about by
overwork, develops in overconscientious or overambitious persons, who
burn the candle at both ends and reduce themselves to a condition of
chronic fatigue and nervousness. Recovery is uncertain and convalescence
slow and tedious.
"Is any provision being made at present for this class of patients,
simply on the verge of nervous collapse ?". was asked.
"There seems to be a tendency to establish clinics, particularly one
in connection with the Johns Hopkins hospital in Baltimore, for the care
of commencing nervousness, with a view toward preventing insanity. In
Europe these institutions have been in existence for some time and the
results have been most gratifying."
"Until these. clinics are an estabjlished fact in
- every large city, what course would you prescribe for
nervous people who might have tendencies toward
"First of all, the advice of a good physician, who
would naturally prescribe regular hours, an even,
everyday life and plenty of exercise in the open air,
in addition to any medicines which he may suggest.
These are the essentials for nervous people to follow
in their daily life if they wish to ward off insanity."
- To the young men who happen to read
these lines I have a few words, which, I
G ood believe, are well worth their attention.
They are: No matter what your income,
save a little.
My present feelings, as I write this,
would not be with me now, had I saved a
little each week. each month, each year.
Always earning a good monthly salary, I
always spent it, not in riotous living, but
carelessly and foolishly, for things I could
By H. W. HAYWARD -well have done without and from which I
received no returns whatever.
- . .This kind of living led me into careless
ways. My credit being unquestioned at thati time, I was able to procure
my wants, if I cared to, on charge accounts, and while not making a habit
of that by any means, I did procure some things in that way, to my regret.
- I foun<Lit harder, still living the careless way, to pay for what I had
purchased, than to get the charge accolint.
I was consequently in debt when married, and, in fact, I married
when I did because continuation at her work would have made a nervous
and physical wreck of my wife.
I was therefore with the added burden of supporting two and main
taining a household.
But, oh, the feelings that have possessed me at times, when pressed
for money by those to whom I am in debt.
As I am honest at heart as the day is long, words cannot express
