"The direst strait I was ever in in
my life," said Timothy J. Campbell,

I was just about stepping off the side

Pauper Lunatics In Britain.
Steadily for the last ten years the
number of certified pauper lunatics
in the British isles has been rising.
Similarly suicide is increasing all over
the country. Turn to the physical
form and the tale is the same. Army
recruits show worse teeth to the ex
amining medical officers every year.
It has just been found necessary to
lower the standard of height, weight
and chest measurement to a degree
which is quite indeiinite. With all
modern athleticism there is still a
definite tendency to increased insanity
and to physical degeneration in Great
Britain at the present day.
