fllii Disease to Thut of Morphine
The conviction is gaining ground
among scientific men, says the
Horseless age, that indulgence in
extraordinary speeds of transition
voluntarily controlled, breeds in the
human species a form of disease
capable of development to the de
gree of delirium. The disease is
generally referred to as the speed
craze or speed mania. By a rather
strange coincidence a discussion of
this subject took place at the S6
ciete de Hypnologie et de Psychol
ogic in Paris only a few days before
the tragic death of Zborowski.
One of the speakers, a Dr. Hachet
Souplet, maintained that persons in
position to increase their speid of
transition at will are simply carried
away by the consciousness thereof.
They have no longer control of
themselves; they are intoxicated.
They then develop characteristics
which are foreign to them when in
the normal state boastfulness,
combativcuess, crabbeduess, hatred,
mischievousness and violence.
Thesi characteristics vary in form
and degree, but many attain a
maximum in the cyclist and auto
mobilist. According to Dr. Uerillou, there
is a strong analogy between the de
lirious intoxication of speed aud
that of morphine. Those who in
dulge in abnormal speed simply for
its own sake aud without any use
ful object in view are mostly de
generates devoid of all self-restraint
aud having absolutely no control
over themselves. They may some
times be seen to dash furiously
against even the most insignificant
obstacles. Kxaniples are on record
where furious speeding has brought
automobilists into the most serious
difficulties, and yet after a short in
terval they would again indulge
their passion. l?or instance, the
French automobilist who ran over
a customs official and was compelled
to pay a heavy indemnity to the
family of the latter, while abstain
ing from excessive speed for a
while, soon had a relapse and sped
his machine as recklessly as before.
The speed habit resembles the alco
hol aud morphine habits in that it
develops by degrees, and that in
the last stages the victim indulges
it with complete abandon.
So for the conclusions of the psy
chologists. Thejr generalizations
may seem rather too sweeping, but
a number of extreme cases of auto
mania during the last few years
afford considerable substantiation
for their arguments.
A Striking LMcturc.
"The most singular painting I
ever saw," said Rev. Geo. R. Savage
to several men who were discussing
art, "was owned by the late T. B.
Peterson, the Philadelphia pub
lisher. I have often wondered what
became of it after his death, and
have often thought that I would
like to own it. It wasn't a great
work of art as the critic might view
it, but it appealed to me very strong
ly. It was by, an obscure painter,
whose name I don't ever remember,
The subject was a German cathe
dral, with a tower rising in bold re
lief, and in the tower was a clock.
A hole had been cut in the canvas
to accommodate the face of the
clock. The thing was so skilfully
done that in looking at the picture
one would not suspect that a real
clock figured in it, for it was a very
large canvas. But on the hour the
the clock would strike in such a
tone as to give the impression of
great distance, to accord with the
perspective of the picture.
The face of the clock, which was
of French make, was quite small,
and the deep, mufiled tone was very
effective." Philadelphia Record.
Dublin Cheers Hoynlty.
Dublin, Irelaed, July 21. The
entrance of King Kdward and
Queen Alexandra was marked by a
most enthusiastic reception at Dub
lin today. If there was any lurk
ing ill will, as evidenced by the re
fusal of the Municipal Corporation
a few days ago to present an address
of welcome, it did not show itself
among crowds that gathered along
the streets traversed by the Royal
TYPES OP MEX.
Modern Conditions Inquire (ircuter
The last fifteen years, says the
Churchman, have been years of
ferment and change, everywhere,
and in every profession and calling
in things material and spiritual.
New types of men are demanded
and have been created, but the sup
ply is not yet large enough, and
many undertakings are going lame
The change is practically univer
sal. The grandest of the old col
lege presidents would probably
bankrupt his institution in a single
year if returned to its administra
tion. If Daniel Webster were taken
to a modem law office he would
think it a bank or counting room of
some master of commerce. Com
modore Vauderbilt would be utterly
unable to cope with the problems
of a modern railway system, and
even Thomas Scott would find his
his favorite road a grevious burden.
The church and its clergy, and
its laity, for that matter, are as
troubled aud as prcplexed and as ill
at ease as any other persons of any
other form of life and work. If
there seem to be fewer leaders, it is
because the average line of life
among the followers has arisen so
far as to eliminate earlier differences
but this is a leveling up, not
down. In proportion to their num
bers there are as many successful
clergy as there arc successful at
torneys, or successful physicians,
or successful teachers, or even suc
cessful business men. And this is
all the more remarkable when we
recall the fact that honor aud
"standing" and reputation appre
ciation and influence are far more
common and more easily attainable
in other lines than once was pos
sible. There are no longer "three
learned professions," to which the
best minds of the community arc
constantly tempted; but a large
baker's dozen, each yielding rich
returns in both material betterment
aud in gratifying a sense of power.
The clerical calling is but one of
