. A MAD DANCE.
Terpischorean Festival at an Insane
I Asylum-Maniacs on the Dight Fan?
tastic Toe-How the Patients Looh
. ed. and Acted-An Interesting Gath?
Festivities and dancing at a place
devoted to the residence and treatment
of the insane naturally suggest a curious
incongruity to the majority of people,
and yet these things form a regular j ea
\, jure in the weekly programme of the
. institution. These insane asylum balls
are very interesting events and gener?
t ally attract quite a large number ol
spectators, considering tho distance ot
the establishment from the city. Tho
' . assembly takes place io the amusement
j hall, on the upper story of tho asylum,
\ which is u large and handsome apart?
ment. The number of patients partic?
ipating io the festivities is generally
from forty to sixty, and frequently more
than tho latter figure. The ball room
is brilliantly lighted, and with its
lofty oeiling and tasteful adornments
presents a highly pleasing spectacle.
The music ia generally a piano and two
violins, the musicians usually being
Dr. Leffingwell, assistant physician, and
one of tho attendants, and a patient
who understands music excellently.
Besides tho patients who directly
participated in tho dancing, quite a large
number aro entertained by watching
the speotaolo of dancers. Thc usual plan
is to arrange the sets so that half the
number on the floor is composed of
patients. Care is always taken to pren
vent two insane people acting as part?
ners. Visitors and the attendants join in
tho dnncibg and form half the sets.
Quadrilles and round dances are execu?
ted, and the patients mingle in both
with thc utmost spirit. Of course, as
in every incident connected with asylum
life, a constant watchfulues has to bc
kept over the patients, but rarely if
over, does anything occur to disturb
the harmony of the proceedings. Vis?
itors aro frequently astonished at the
order and decor um pre. erv ed, and find
it difficult to realize that more than one
half of those present belong to that un?
fortunate class cursed by the blight of
mental aberration. The spectacle of the
hall as thc dance is iu progress, has,
moreover some curious features, which
remind a thoughtful spectator that there
is something peculiar about the nssembly
whioh otherwise looks like any other
festival gathering. Tho harmonious
music of many voices which usually
characterizes a dancing party is absent.
Mad people, as a general thing, are not
talkative, except in a broken incoherent
manner, and when a number of them
are together, und when some un?
usual excitement prevails. The com?
parativo silence where ono expects nat?
urally the sound of human voices in
conversation aud laughter, is one ol' thc
most promineut characteristics. When
amused and interested, the insane pa?
tients have a tendency to more freedom
of speech j but still thc absence of the
usual hum of voices strikes a spectator
at once when he first glances on the mad
people's ball. They do talk and laugh
to a certain extent, but the prcvailiug
sound'when the musio ceases hus an
outro element in it, aud is different in
quality ns well as quantity from the
usual accompaniment of a ball room.
The patients are all neatly dressed
and in deportment there was nothing
observable to which the most fastidious
could objeot. An examination of thc
faces of tho crazy folks as they are par?
ticipating in amusements of this sort, it
a most interesting study. Once thor
oughly interested, and they lose more
than half that peculiar expression
which in thc majority of cases charac?
terizes insanity. In tho perversion of
intellect they may not be ablo to un.
derstnnd tho cxaot meaning of words
addressed to them, but tho simple pro?
gramme of au evening's pleasure as
skillfully devised now in our public
institutions, appeals to them iu a dif?
ferent woy. The light, cheerful music
soothes them, and the animation mound
awakes their interest, while the example
of others exercise ils influence Then
in many cases, the patients previous tu
thc derangement, of their reasons un?
derstood dancing,' and the scene re?
calls dimly visions and scenes of thc
Io many instances a female or male
face could bc seen whioh illustrated the
deep interest excited even among tho
insane by such amusements Thc
expression was that of absorbed otu nlion
with now and then a ?r*co of bewilder?
ment, Ono could- understand at a
glance the struggle in thc disordered
mind Charmed away from its delusions
by tho influence of others nnd .the
scene around, it was endeavoring tu
comprehend thc (ruo and reasonable.
It was, in fact, as if one were looking
"through a gloss darkly," for insanity
is oftener obscurity of mental visions
ns to tho relation ot things than n muro
disorder of faculties or one crowning
hallucination. Again, hero might be
seen a young girl, so evidently pleased
with her surroundings that she could
not help but laugh gleefully now and
then, becoming almost sane in tho nat?
uralness of her feelings. Thc dancing
is kept up to quito a Inte hour, and
when it torminales everybody hctros ii.
excellent humor and thc patients are
escorted smiling, to their quarters.
