ELLA WHEELER WILCOX SAYS:
To Really Live, Be a Factor in the World's Progress
By IJLLA WHKKIitiH WILCOX.
Begin your thankfulness this Uuy by
gratitude foi being allowed to live In
hurli an era as the present one.
I have befote nie a report of the L'on
ie.'tcut Society for Mental Hygiene. This
poclm studies the cause nnd cure of
mental troubles, hysteila. delusions, 'u-
wanltj . and provides aid for nil such sttf i
feiois to such extent as Is possible. ,
One hundred years ago Insanity was I
regarded as n disgrace, and the poor vie- j
11ms of a mental malady were supposed
to have brought on their trouble by hob- ,
nobbing with devils. They wcro thrust
Into dark dungeons, chained, starved ami
beaten In order to drive out the demons. 1
Today all over the civilized world science
is working with an earnest effort to lie'j
alleviate the sorrows of the Insane.
With the added assistance of a social ;
woiker of wide experience, Miss Jessie '
1. Bnlyea (formerly In charge of the
bureau for the Charity Organization So
ciety of Now York City), the Connecti
cut Society for Mental Hygiene Is now
able to put Into operation Its plan for the
prevention of nervous and montal ills
ordcrfi, This intensive soolal service
work In mental hygiene will be done by
th Field Secretary. Miss Beiyea, and the
executive secretary. Clifford W. Beers,
either of whom may he consulted.
In this they will co-operate with hos
pital physicians nnd other members of
the medical profession who arc Interested
In the development nf the society's work.
The gicat work being done by good
men and women toward a broader and
kinder sjste.m of treating prisoners, the
glowing success of the paiole experi
ment, which allows men under sentence
to work In the open air, in place of being
herded behind bars, the associations
formed for helping men who come out of
prison to obtain a new hold on life and
hope, all these things arc comparatively
new in the world.
A hundred years ago. men were thrown
Into prison and forgotten by the world
for n i worse crime than debt.
It nut until 1SGC thai Henry Bergh
formed the Society for the Prevention of
CrUeity to Aulumls. He was lidiculed

Our thanks for love, and knowledge of love's laws.
Love is a greater power thun vested might.
