PARANOIA; WHAT IT IS AND HOW
IT AFFECTS HUMANITY.
Inherited Tendencies That Often Prove
Dangerous What as "Crank" Is An
Explanation of the Acts of a Very
Large Portion of the People li e Know.
A considerable section of the annals of
modern crime is devoted to the misdeeds
of a class of individuals who in common
parlance are termed "cranks." In the
courts the sanity of theso persons is often
in question. It is commonly assumed that
only by hairspliting refinements of
analysis can criminals of this class be
brought within the pale of that charity
which is everywhere accorded to the un
sound mind. Yet the fact is that the
great majority of these unfortunates are
the victims of a definite disease of the
brain and mind. This disease is called
paranoia. Let us consider the disease
from its incipiency. Paranoia, more than
any other form of insanity, is the result of
inherited mental instability. Insnnity,
like most other diseases, is not directly
transmissible' as .nch. What is trans
mitted is an unstable nervous system, and
may be the heritage of a person in whose
family there has never been a case of in
sanity if such a family exists.
Perhaps a progenitor hns lieen a drunk
ard or the victim of some wasting disease.
His descendant may be merely nervous;
lie may have chearea or epilepsy; he may
liecome insane. At liest, be may usually,
if properly educated, learn to understatJd
himself and to live a sane and useful life.
We have here to do, however, only with
the cases in which a wrong environing in
fluence aids in the development of a par
ticular form of Insanity. It is possible to
outline pretty definitely the mental at
tributes. One may even point out in the
child what might be termed the paroniac
temperament. Its charaeterist ics are mor
bid sensitiveness and great eeotism.
Unfortunately the parents of such a child
usually take pride in the egotism that leads
to eccentric acts, while t he extreme pre
cocity of many of these subjects causes
their eeotism to be fostered by ill adjudged
praise. Usually the child of paranoiac
temperament is the genius of his family
and the show pupil at school. Pampered
and praised, even though the entire house
hold becomes subordinated to his sovereign
will, he is not sat islied, believing that he
does not receive his dues. With that idea,
the germs of paranoia are planted in his
mind. Whetner or not these germs will
develop into the pathological condition
that we are discussing will depend largely
upon the influences that are brought to
bear upon them during adolescence and
early manhood. Perhaps the most un
favorable environment is one in which the
mind is developed at the expense of the
body. And of course the brilliant child
is the one whose mental training will lie
forced. The other children of the family
may stay at home, but this one must lie
sent to college and fitted for one of the
learned professions. Usually he seems to
justify this discrimination. Often he is an
honor" man at college, and lie starts out
into the world with every seeming prospect
of an eminently prosperous career.
lint all t his time lie has liecome more
and more eccentric. lie has associated
little witli his fellows. Often he has shown
himself possessed of extraordinary energy
and capacity for application. A peculiarity
often noted is a tendency to make elalnir
ate written records of trivial subjects. Oc
casionally the young person of paranoiac
temperament breaks down under the un
balancing influences of overstudy while
still at school; but usually the critical
stress comes after he lias gone out into the
world. He is usually not yet insane. He
may never become so. If his business or
professional ventures succeed, he may lie
conic distinguished, and contact with the
world ma- gradually correct the morbid
tendencies; but if adverse circumstances
arise and refuse to lie juit down, especially
if the individual's vanity is wounded by
failure to rise to the heights pictured by
ambition, morbid brooding may develop
out of vanity, selfishness and suspicion, the
delusion of persecution.
But it must not be supposed that the
mature condition is merely egotism and
egotism run riot. That it has come to be
something more than this is proved by the
appearance, sooner or later, of hallucina
tions of one or more of the senses. These
do not necessarily coincide at first with
delusions. The incipient paranoiac may
hear voices about him and for a time be
able to convince himself of their unreality.
Hut sooner or later these sounds become
so tangible that they have the full force
and import of actual voices. At first he
hears them only when jieople are actually
speaking, his mind merely misinterpret
ing what it hears. This HTversion is tech
nically termed an illusion. Hut at last he
hears words and sentences when no real
sound conies to his cars; these are true
hallucinations. Perversions of other
senses usually precede or follow this one.
Illusions of touch and smell are common.
The former lead to a liclicf in invisible
spirits that touch the hotly, and the latter
convince the patient that attempts are be
ing made to poison him with noxious
When to this cluster of jiervertcd sensa
tions hallucinations of sight are added, the
galaxy is complete, and the victim moves
and has his Ix'iiig in an ideal world peo
pled with odors, tastes, sounds and sights
that an; shut out from the common herd.
The patient lives a dual existence. For a
time he is able to treat the actual world in
the old familiar way that is, sanely
meanwhile keeping the new and strange
world hidden. Hut gradually he comes to
confound the two existences. He comes to
believe that hosts of people are leagued
against him, and all sane interests give
way to a desire to thwart these imagined
foes. At this stage of his morbid career
the patient becomes very dangerous,
though lie may still seem to be the most
peaceable of men. Murders are often com
mitted by patients in this condition. But
many more intended murders that are
carefully planned are never executed lie
cause of the irresolution of the would be
murderer. Dr. H. S. Williams in Xorth
The March of the Leuiminirs.
Few animals are more stupid than tte
lemmings, a species of rodent in Norway
and Sweden like the common water rat of
America. They are exceedingly voracious
and bite at anything and everything. I
have heard it said that if met by a cart the
only idea of the lemming would be to bite
the wheel. This Insatiable appetite makes
It a fearful pest. An army at lemmings
will do as much damage as a swarm of
locusts. They come down in enormous
numbers from the northern districts,
where the food supply has given out, and
march through Scandinavia in two great
armies separated by the Kiolens range. J.
Ii Vance in Our Animal Friends.
