shall use the same iina'csses under the

from niiiiuiL' a thousand. I present to
a woman patient tu the hypnotic stale
a hluuk leal' uf pnHr and say to her:
Here is in v portrait, hut do you
think til Iff Is it a ifisxl likeness I
After a moment s hesitation she an
swer: "ics, iiutecu. your pin iiuirnipii

that leaf of i:iht and mix it with u
scora of other leaves pr, 'icly liko it
I then bund over the whole puck to
the putietit, bidding her to go over
them and let nm know whether she
lliids among these anything she has
seen before. She begins to look ut the
leaves one ufler unother, and as soon
a her eyes fall upon tho one llrsl
shown tu herd had tnado upon It u
murk which she could not discern)
forthwith she exclaims, "Look, your
Whitl is more curious still, if I turn
the leaf upside, down, as stsiti us her
eyes rest uihjii it, she turns it over,
saving my photograph is on the ob
verse. 1 then convey to her the oritur

quosting her to lisik over tlium. Bbo

U now I tell her thut she may retire,
she ndums to her dormitory, and her
llrat euro will be to show lior oomiiun
Ions the iihototrrauli 1 bare given hor.
Uf courso hur ooinpaiilons, not having
received tlie suggestion, will see only
a blank leaf of tiUDer. without unv
trace whutevor of a tiortrait, and Will
lutigh nl our subject and treat her as
visionary. Furthermore, this sugges
tion, this hnlluciiiuliun, will if I wish
continue several duys. All I have to
do is to express the wish to the patient
before awakening her.
The foregoing experiment has been
niude hundred of times by me und by
others, and the fact can easily be sub
stantiated: their objectivity is as com
plete us could be wished iu researches
of the kind. Hypnotism is directly
