IMiyslrluns and Suicide.
There are several theories advanced
as to why the members of the medical
profession am morn prone to suicide
limn itnj other. During the last three
years ivuleides among physicians have
mimherfcd respectively forty-live, Hfiy
nine and forty-teven per annum, nt'
about 1 li 2,000. Nearly one-fiftieth
of the dcf.tlis in the profession have
beeu by suicide. Some claim that
this result is caused by mornidness
resulting from association with the
sick ajd dving, or by an indifference
to deal h or front a kuowledge how to
die pilnlessly. A medical journal
claims that suicide is a matter of in
sann impulse. The doctor coniws in
fatigued v mind aud body, depressed
in spirits, pei-haps drugs is fatal in his
case. If he hsil .to walk to the drug
store to obtain them, perhaps meeting
au agrneabte aeqiiallii-ince on the wav,
the impulse would puss, but with ttie
deadlv polMiii within reach of his hand
the ju-Meu tempi ati.. n in avail hiuitelt
of its uso is loo strong to be resisted.

About the Fourth Finger.
The wedding ring is almost invari
ably placed on the fourth finger of
the left hand, and all because many
centuries ago the Egyptians believed
that a certain small artery proceeded
directly from the heart to the termin
ation of thai digit. Iu the "Altick
Nighty" we read: "The motion of
this artery may be felt by touching
this finger to the pulse, it being an
index iii peases of sickness, or where
persons are weary or overlabored,
always informing when the heart is
overburdened or offended." Further
on in the same article he says: "This
linger rarely hath gout" mi account of
the sympathy and neighborhood it
hath with the heart. It is the first
linger that a new horn babo is able to
move, and the last of which the dying
man loseth control. It is also the one
last to swell when the vital heal is
abating in one that is paasiiigover."
