Then again, the report says the sheriff talked to the crowd, but when it began
to approach him, he scurried off in" his automobile. This, if correct, is one of the
most interesting of the events connected with the outrage.
The lynching occurred in the middle of the day, in the broad glare of the noon
day sun, in the heart of the biggest city in Texas, and not a word is said about
the leaders wearing masks. "We can now wait and see what, action the officers
will take to bring to justice the men guilty of murder in hanging a man before he
was legally condemned.
A few hours more and the negro, if guilty, would have been legally sentenced
to execution, for he had been taken to the courtroom for trial, but "was snatched
from the prisoner's dock at the bar of justice, dragged through the streets and
murdered by 'a mob insane with race hatred. His crime was a terrible one, but
why add another as the mob certainly did? ,
The lynching is not only a blot on the name of the state, but an insult to the
court in which the prisoner was on trial. It was one of the most sensational
lynchings that have ever besmirched the name of Texas and the country will await
with interest the developments in the case. Several unusual features made them
selves prominent in the outrage, to attract the attention of the country and the
whole world, and it will not soon be forgotten.
What will the officials of Dallas county do about it to clear the name of their
city and state? "Will the sheriff recover from his reported fright in time to return
to his duties and arrest the leaders of the mob, whom it is reasonable to suppose
he must know? f

El Paso's Bright Outlook
rE present year will witness the greatest building development inJthe whole
history of the city- If only the plans for buildings already ordered erected
are carried out, the entire skyline will be changed and El Paso on Jan. 1
1911 will look like a different city from the El Paso of a year previous. t '
The Mills building of eight stories possibly ten has been ordered erected; the
general has given the instructions to go ahead with the work; the Roberts-Banner
building of four stories on the corner of Mesa and St. Louis is now under way;
the American National bank will begin construction on an eight story home just as
soon as it can move out of its present quarters and have them wrecked; the More-house-Caples
building on the corner of Mesa and San Antonio streets has been
ordered built, at least five stories and maybe seven; the W. G. Walz building on
the corner of San Francisco and El Paso is to be rebuilt and practically made into
a new building, probably with a fourth story added; W. J. Fewel has ordered his
tenants to vacate the property at the corner of San Antonio and El Paso streets so
that he can erect a modern building in a few months, from four to eight stories in
height; the Schutz two story building is being erected adjoining The Herald build
ing on San Francisco sfer-eet and the three story warehouse and store of the Kra
kauer, Zork and Moye firm, occupying a block, is now under way.
These are only the bigger buildings in the very heart of the city assured for
the present year. Many other buildings smaller but substantial will be erected
and in addition the two biggest department stores in the city are arranging to
greatly add to their space, the Popular almost doubling it and J. Cafcsher taking in
another .whole store room.
With the residence building record and other, improvements even keeping pace
with the work of the past year, EI Paso will grow 'and develop to a greater extent
during the present year, it is safe to predict, than any other city in the United
States twice her size.

CURING THE INSANE
' J. Haskin
MARVELOUS RESULTS WITH "WORD TREATMENT" JZZZZJ
THE cure of mental derangement
by the sudden pronunciation of
a single word is the achievement
of Dr. Shepherd Ivory Franz, who" is in
charge of the psychological laboratory
of the-government hospital for the in
sane at Washington. He succeeds by
working on the theory that there are
thousands of cases of insanity which
can be successfully treated if the cause
of the mental disease can be ascer
tained, and the explanation made to
the patients that their unhealthy
thoughts have no foundation in fact.
Insanity Caused by Fear.
There was sent to him recently a
young man who had an overpowering
fear of open places, the outdoors or
any unenclosed place, and who was
under the domination of this terror to
to leave his bedroom only by physical!
Dr. Franz took him into the "treat
ment room" of the laboratory, where,
there is a very little light vand no noise.
Seating ithe patient in a comfortable
easy chair, the doctor told him to re- I
-lax himself and try not to think of
anything. After a dead silence of sev
eral minutes, the doctor began to pro
nounce with sudden emphasis single
words which he thought might pro
duce In the man's mind some idea hav
ing a bearing on the cause of his de
lusions. Every time he Dronouneed a
word, he leaned over and struck the .
patiently sharply on the knee. !
He went through more than 100 words !
without getting any results. Finally,
when he said "hole," the man paused
a moment before making an Irrele-;
vant answer. That pause encouraged i
Franz. His. next word, accompanied by I
the tap -on the knee, was "trench." j
From this he got results, and gradu
ally, with infinite patience, he brousrhi I
uut wie story or wnat nad unseated the
patient's mind. i
It was this: One morning he had
been running at the ton of his sneed

to overtake a moving street car, and j
the chase had carried him half way j
down the next block. .Tnst- c ii ino i
about to grasp the handle bar of the I
car and swing himself aboatrd, he
looked down and saw yawning at his
feet a freshly dug sewer trench. One
more step and he would have had a
fall of eight feet, but he managed to
bring himself up short.
Patient Is Cured.
At first the experience had had no
appreciable effect, but such shocks to
the brain work gradually. In a few
weeks he felt an aversion to walking
in open fields. Next he disliked to
cross the street, and this went so faf
that he could not be prevailed to do so
unless he was accompanied by a guide.
After a while longer, he refused to
walk across the yard from his house
to that of his next door neighbor, and

costume of a dark shade
the final stage of the disease was that
he was afraid to leave his room.
Dr. Franz, having established all this
by his theory of suggesting to the
patfent the real trouble by the use of
words calculated to bring the mental
pictures back to him, had comparative-
ly little difficulty In explaining that the
dread was founded on fiction and that
there was really nothing to fear. The
man.'s complete recovery followed and
he again occupies a prominent place In
the business world.
Woman Fears Fre.
These peculiar cases of insanity are
classed under the general title of "pho
bias." The man who feared the open
places was .an agoraphobiac Another
case Dr. Franz had was that of a pyro
phobia the fear of fire. This was a
woman who dreaded fire, and at vari
ous periods In the day imagined that
she was enveloped in flames. At such
time she suffered as much as If she
had been actually on fire. On very
bright, sunny days, the brilliancy of
the sun persuaded her that the world
was burning up. The doctor was suc
cessful with her on the third word,
which was "matches."
That reminded her dimly of her baby
having been burned Jto death as the
result of playing with matches. Grad
ually, he made her understand that
the child's death was no reason for
her to think she was on fire or to be
lieve that fife was to be dreaded all
It is difficult to trace these "phobias'
to their true cause because, as was
pointed out in the case of the agora
phobiac. the effects of the shock to the
bvain do not appear at once, but come
out long afterwards. The families of
the patients, are often unable to as
sign any reasons for the mental break
3Iani:i for "Washing: Hands.
The asylum had one amusing case.
This was a mysopbobiac. a man who
feared dirt as ordinary people fall awuy
from pestilence. His mania for wash
ing his hands "was never satisfied, and
the hospital attendants finally -agreed
to let him go through these ablutions
eight times a day. On one occasion he
was allowed to go into the lavatory
unwatched, and, when he was found 40
minutes later, he had used 70 towels.
It was later discovered that his trou
ble had come, from his seeing on the
street a man who appeared to be par
ticularly unkempt and dirty looking.
Af the time this patient's companion
had been a physician, who had pointed
out the probabilities of the tramp
spreading disease. Through some pe
cullac kink in his brain, the patient
had dwelt on that remark and had al
lowed it to become the dominant
thought in his life, resulting In his
having no other desire than to take
baths and wash his hands. While thl3
incident can be related briefly, it Is
illustrative of the doctor's patient meth
ods that he had to use more than 6008
words in the course of many treatments
before he set the man's mind to think
ing of the actual cause of the trouble.
The successful word was "doctor," al
though such words as "germ" and
"disease" had failed to make any sub
stantial suggestion to the patient's
Young: WomaH Cured.
One of Dr. Franz's patients was a
beautiful young woman who was taken
to him because she had a fear of any
thing red. Bed curtains, red carpets
or anything of that color threw her
Into what amounted to convulsions of
fear. He took her into the darkened,
It was a summer afternoon, and
nothing could be heard but the smooth
hum of an electric fan on the table
He allowed her to sit perfectly quiet
for more than five minutes. Then he
leaned forward, and, tapping her on the
knee, saidsharply: "Suicide."
"Yes, yeV she said, and hesitated &
moment. Then she continued: "It was
at a ball."
"Pistol," exclaimed the doctor. That
brought back the whole story of how
she had been at a german one even
ing and had seen a man commit sui
cide in a conservatory by shooting him
self In the temple. The 3ight of the
bl'ood on the suicide's shirt front had
been the starting point of her delusion.
She was cured in two weeks.
ForetH Own Identity.
A peculiar case was that of a man
who had suddenly forgotten his own
identity, and had traveled through six
different states without knowing who
he was. He was picked up Jn the streets
of Washington and sent to the hospital
for the Insane. Thete was nothing to
suggest who he was, absolutely no clue
to his home, his occupation or his name.
It afterward developed that he had
been away from home eight "months,
and "had been going- down -hill all the
time until he looked, like the most mis
erable of tramps.
The doctor saw the futility of trying:
to suggest to him his Identity by using
all the names he had ever heard. Ac
cordingly, he tried the employment line.
None of the ordinary professions
brought any response. Mention of doc
tors, lawyers. Journalists or ministers
gave no result. The same was true of
all the words referring to such avoca
tions as plumbers, bricklayers, car
penters and teamsters.
Finally the doctor said: "I am look
ing for somebody to tune my piano."
It proved to be the right cue. The pa
tient was a piano tuner from one of the
middle western states. After three
weeks of questioning and prompting,
the doctor retraced with the man all
his wanderings, made him remember
his name and restored to him the com
plete mastery of all his mental facul
ties. Dreads Horse Skoe.
One of the most baffling cases Franz
ever had was the man who not only
was 'frightened every time he saw a
horseshoe, but who was constantly pos
sessed of the Idea that it would be
used as a means of killing him. Of
course, the natural assumption was
that he had been kicked by a horse
or run over by one, and that the shock
of the accident had unseated his reason.
Working on this theory the doctor
wasted many precious sittings and used
up hundreds of words without making
any progress toward discovering the
true cause of the trouble. It finallv
developed that the fellow had been
struck on the head by a horseshoe,
which had been nailed over a door for
"good luck," and which had fallen on
him as he entered a friend's house.
A direct opposite of the man who
feared the open places was the woman
who dreaded all closed or dark places.
She had claustrophobia, and had de
veloped the mania of staying outof
doors, sleeping outofdoors and never
entering the house unless compeled to
do so. As is often the case with others,
her trouble had come from an accident
to her child. She had seen it, while
playing In a big linen closet, have Its
hand caught and crushed by the clos
ing of a heavy door, and the shock of
the child's suffering- preyed on her
mind until she had come to fear any
thing with doors.
The "phobias" are the most trouble
some curable cases with which the
psychiatrist or alienist has to deal. If
any of these patients had died while in
the worst stages of their mental de
rangements, and autopsies had been
performed on them, their brains would
have appeared perfectly normal.
Their sufferings do not come from
any decay or disease of the brain tis
sues, and it has been demonstrated that
wore it not for the "word treatment
all that could be done for them would
be to allow them to suffer for months
and months, perhaps years before they
could recover. With the new method,
however, they are often cured in mar
velously short time.
