Headllv In Mew. Anionic tho many ileum
tlons of clasltled mentnl unsoundness, that
of tho word lunatic seems best adapted for
the consideration of Hamlet's case, viz,
"One who hath lind iinileratundlne, but bv
disease, Krler, or other accident, luth Inst
tho uso of his reason." Illnckslone. "lie

The forcRoliiB rules npply to both cltll

plication of rules In cases distinctively
criminal, wo have tho following:
"There must be a disease which impairs
or totally destros either the understand
Inpr or tho will." I A. (c 11. line, of I.. 71.
"If tho nccused knew what ho was dolntr
nnd thnt the net was prohibited by law,
nnd had power of mind enough to bo con-t-clous
of what ho wns dolnp, he Is re
sponsible." Id. 717.
"A party nctlnp under the Influence of an
Insano delusion, with a Mow of redressing
or avenRlnK some supposed Krlevance, or of
prodltcinif some public benefit is never
theless punishable, if ho knew at tho time
that he wus nctinc contruiy to law."
To my mind, this case must turn upon
two points; First Alter his tlmt talk with
Ills father's spirit. Hamlet tells Horatio, In
effect, that he Intends to felun madness. Is
this fact admissible In eu-ldence In his
favor? No: for the reason that while one's
statements and admissions against himself
nnd his Interest arc always admissible In
evidence against him, et no one Is per
mitted to manufacture evidence In his own
favor by llrst making statements and there,
after proving that ho did make them. In
other words, nil he saj s ugnlnst himself
mnv be proven ntralnst him, but lh rule
Is otherwise, and Justlv so, 113 to all lie -.ays
In Ills own fnor. Second Hamlet alone
heard nnd talked to the Khost. The tlrst
time his thrte friends tee It, but hear It
not: the second time It appears and talks
with him in the presence of his mother,
yet she neither sees nor hears It. Under
these facts, therefore, neither the ghost,
nor what It said, enn be put In evidence,
for the evidence of disembodied spirits wan
not recognled bv the courts In that day
any more than In this. Henca under tho
letter of thn law, upon either a civil or
criminal trial, the evidence of his Intention,
as given Horato, ns well ns what the
Khost said and did, must be excluded.
Hut from the time of Samuel and Saul
(see Samuel XXVIII.) down to Hamlet, and
on down to our own day and Keneration,
men and women of rare sense. Judgment
and honesty have ns lirmly believed in tho
mateilallzatlon and talk of spirits of tho
dead as In the existence of any other fact.
Whatever these in inifestatlons may be to
others however meaningless yet to that
class of persons these things present them
selves ns fact and who, without know
ing, shall say they are not? V.-t there has
been and Is no prr tense that these people
nre not wholly lesponslblo civilly and ulm
Inally. As hhakespcarn puts thesp two
points In evidence, however, and as Hamlet
fully Intended the Hist and lirmly believed
in the second for after the pl.lv ho gives
the same ciedence to tho ghost ns he does
to Horatio I think It but fair to the mas
ter, and fair to the treatment of the sub
ject, to give full faith, credit and elfeet
to both Inunt and ghost, and with these
in evidence, my conclusion is that Ham
let, although at times desperate unci melnn
cholv, Is chilly and cilmlnally liable for
nil his acts, and, theiefore, .not Insane.
While nns other lew leaves Hamlet before
the court as a mailman, yet to my mind the
strongest Indication, and evidence, too, of
hU infinity, is found In Ids wild, un-ie-t.onlng
talk, and in leaping Into dead
Ophelias grave yet love, jealousy, grief
iiiirl tcmorse may well account for all tnat.
With the shost In evidence, Hamlet labors
under no delusion to him It is ,1 tacl. In
delei mining the validity of wills, civil con
tiacts and tho like, tho question Is: Did
the party pleading the disability of un
soundness of mind have suillclent menial
capacity to comprehend and understand
the nature of the act In nil its scope and
meaning? A slioithand statement of the
test in cilnilnal cases Is- Did the party at
thn time know light from wrong? Had
either of thesp questions come up In this
ense. the answer would have been in the
attli matlve, and especially In the latter,
for there "the Insanity must have been
such as to prevent the accused fiom dis
tinguishing iietween the right and the
wrong in the particular act." 1 A. & 13.
j:nc, of L. 715,
One may b nientallv tinbilanced at
times, yet of sound mind at others. Ham
let know.1 that his father has been foully
murdered bj his uncle and thirsts foi ie
venge; yet two considerations deter him
from wreaking sumniHiv punishment:
First His father's spliit charges him
that howsoever ho puistni the net, yet ho
must neither taint himself, nor harm his
mother, Sicond "Ho cruves, 11s ovciy
good man must crave, to have his name
sweet In the mouth, his memory iragrant
and pieclou.s In Hie hearts of his countiy
men. ' Hudson.
Until after the play repiesentliitr the
murder of his father, ho does not Know
but some degreo of guilt rests upon his
mother he must not, will not, In nny way
lnvolvp her. Again, ho has no pioof of
the king's guilt under which he can Jus
tify taking his life, until that "occulted
guilt" Is made manliest by tho effect
which the play has upon the king. Con
trlvn as he may, yet up to that hour he is
terribly handlc.ipppd by thu ghost's charge,
to which ho has given absent,
From the llrst ho l satlsllpd that some
thing Is wrong: but what or Just how to
uncover the guilty and mete out punish
ment, aro matteis of slowest unfoldmont.
During this development, whatever ho
was or may havn teemed to otheis, yot In
the presence of his known liuest and best
friend, Horatio, Hamlet Is. with hut 11
single exception, alwass apparently in his
light mind. This exception occuis Just
After coming fiom his Urn nnd most im.
nortant Intel view with the ghost, in tho
intense excitement of that hour, Hamlet
utteri, such words as call foith from Ho
ratio this mild lebiiko;
"Tilt-so aio but wild and whirling wolds,

ghost, on the third 11 Ik hi they call In
"Thai, If ngnln this apparition come,

On that night all three see tho Rhdt
"In the enmu figure, like the king that's
and Horatio challenge and attempts to
talk to It, but his ghostly majesty, ns If
o!Tcndil, stalks away, Later, however,
on thnt same night, It rr.1ppe.1rs, Horatio
again Implores It to speak, nnd It seems
about to do so, when again
"it faded on the crowing of the cock"
After a discussion of the mjstery, Hor
atio nukes the suggestion:
"Let us Impart what we hav seen to
night I'nto .voung Hnmlel; for, upon my life,
This spirit, dumb to us.wlll speak to him,"
Acting upon this- suggestion, they sep
arate, but Inter In tho day all three meet
and discuss the ghost wllh Hnmlel, who
agrees to meet and watch with them on
thnt bight After the others mako their
e.xlt Hamlet rollloiiiilzes:
"My father's spirit In nrmsl all Is not well;
I doubt some foul play; would the night
Till then sit still, my soul; foul deeds will
Though all the earth o'rwhclm them, to
llnmlct, Horatio nnd Marcetlus appear
upon tho platform at midnight:
"The air biles shrewdly; It Is very cold."
"It Is a nipping nnd an eager air,"
but the three friends wait nnd watch un
til the ghost appears, and to It, In a frenzy
of hope and fear, doubt nnd dread, Ham
let appeals In language, most touching, say
Ing: "Angels and ministers of srnce defend 11s!
lio thou a spirit of health or goblin
Ilrlng with thee nlrs from heaven or blasts
"J'll cnll thee Hamlet,
Kin?, father; roynl Dane, O, answer me."
No nnswer comes, only a- beckon, and
Hointlo to Hamlet savs:
"It beckons you to go away with It,
As If some Impartmetit did desire
To you alone.
Against the protest, and even force, of
Ills two friends, Hamlet goes with the
ghost, nnd when the two are nlone, out of
the sight and hearing of the otln rs, the
ghost, speuklng to and being understood
by Hamlet as his "father's spiill" unfolds
In all ItH fcaiful details the circumstances
of his murder by his brother, the now
king, and exhorts his son to
"Itevenge his foul and most unnatural
Yet gives the ghost this caution:
"Hut, howsoever thou pursuest this act,
Taint not thy mind, nor let thy soul con
trive Against thy mother aught; leave her to
And to those thorns that In her bosom
To prick and stlne her."
Hamlet assents to nil this. Then the
fit st tiling he does upon rejoining Horatio
and Marcpllus is to awear th 111 to secrecy.
Later on In that stormy Interview with
his mother (act three, scene four) the
ghost again appears and converses with
Hamlet, but the mother neither sees nor
heals It; nor do Hamlet's three friends,
who nctually see tho ghost, ever hear it
utter one word, save "swear" when Ham
let demands that they shall swetir that
"Never make known what you have seen
Hamlet then, ns theretofor. both sees
and hears, and at the close of the lli.'t
conversation, says to Horatio:
"Touching this vision here.
It is an honest ghost, that let me tell you."
He afterwards has his doubts of this,
and even after arranging with the playeis
lo leproduce the scene of his father's mur
der, as his father's ghost gavu that Hi'eno
to him, lie says to Horatio:
"One scene of It comes near the circum
stance Which I have told theo of my father's
T pr'y thee when thou seest that act afoot,
I'veu with the very comment of thy soul
Ob&crvu my uncli; If bis occulted guilt
Do not itself unkennel In one bpeech,
It Is a damned ghost that wo have seen:
And my Imaginations arc as foul
As Vulcan's stithy."
Hut when that scene is reppidueed with
such powerful effect upon the lUnrtled,
guilty king, Hamlet doubts no longer, but
with th assuiaucc of positive coirvlctlou
"O, good Horatio, I'll take the ghost's
wold for .1 thousand pound."
No one piesent, save Hamlet nnd Hoia
tio, nppear to note an tiling unusual in
either the King's conduct or his manner
of leaving the play; el to Hnmlel the
king's countenance nnd demeanor art
proof positive that his father's spliit has
told him truly, mid that tho king, hi man
ner and form as described, murdered his
father by pourlm,' poison Into his slei ping
ear. That piobleni solved to his satisfac
tion all else Is clear.
While the sudden death of his father,
the busty mm 1 luge of his mothei, nnd the
Mug' giecdy assumption of tho reliis of
government, havo combined to piodme
upon the mind of the thoughtful, studious
Hamlet a. feeling of profound shame and
melancholv, and while the statu of bis
mind is often undu- discussion In mid out
of louit, uud he Is iiiged to throw off his
melancholy, et It Is a highly slgiilllcant
fuel that no one suspnts him nf madness
until utter Ids Hist talk with tho ghost.
Another slgiilllcant I ict, and to mu a
couti oiling one. Is that nfier learning fiom
tho ghost nil tho details of his fathei'ii
murder, and being uiged to levengi- the
same, Hamlet makes up Ids mind that the
best way to attain thu desiied end Is 10
feign lusunlts. Hence, on that very night,
ho has Horatio nnd .Muicellus swear that
"How strange or odd twe'er I bear myself

I'luntril at the I limit,
Home of the old Continental famlles liter
ally did date their pedlgrpes from the Hood,
s.i)i the London Standard. The French
family of Croy po'sessed at onu (Imp a line

Welsh family, the .Mnstjns, of Mostyn, Is
eipinlly remarkable It has been preserved
among their pnpeis for more than three
centuries. Is Inscribed on lllumlnnted parch

nvntlonnt In the Old Testament. Is mide
to now thiough sundry roval nnd Imperial
channels till It reaches Hdwitid III., wheie
It stops; fu that It would lit any family
claiming descent from the I'lnntngencts.
Hut In spite of absurdities of this kind,
probably no Croy or Hostn pver dis, ended
in the dtpth of silliness of supposing that
his or her blood was llterallv blue. The
fact was that In .Spain the Moorish Invasion
drove the nobles into every kind ot ex
Iremltv. JIan families In melr dlstiiss
allied thPiiisplv.il with lhoe of African,
Indian or Jewish blood, in this manner
their descendants gained what Is commonly
called a "dash of the tar brush."
When the Moorish oke wns eventually
thrown oft", tho old families who dated
from n time previous to the .Moorish Inva
sion were particularly anxious to mnlntaln
the purltv of their descent. Tho biro Idea
of the slightest taint of African or Jewish
blood filled them with honor. Yet nearly
cverybotD's blood was so tainted when the
Moors were oviithiovvu and the Jews ex
jelled at the md of the llfteenth century
Those, however, who were conscious of
their pure dtsrent were naturally Inclined
to be proud of It There wns no trace of
the loathed, dark faced .Moor In their
veins; they had never Intermarried wllh
the despised Jew. Hut all around them
were men who were partly Jewish, and
who, whatever they might sav, bore the
signs of their mixed origin In thrlr furc
Verhnps, theiefore. It was not altogether
astonishing, nb-uid ns It now seems to us
that the Rpanlnid of pure descent should
come to Imagine that the blood of a quad
