The akticix by Dr. Willi m A. II vm-
Moxii on "SclfControl in Curing Insanity."'
nibllslicil ln ''The North American
ltevlcw" for March, is eminently sensible
and practical. Tho writer argues that the
difference between an honest and virtuous
man and a degraded ono is not necessarily
due to structural differences in tho brain,
but, that vice comes from yielding, to bad
impulse. In almost every caso of crlmo
loinmlltcd by people und.er tho influence
of so-called emotional insanity the im
pulse to commit the crimo could
have been conquered. The failure
to do so constitutes tho crime nnd should
bo punished ns relentlessly as crimo of
amy other character. Dr. Hammond has
Icvoted much timo nml study to mental
snd nervous complaints nnd ho fortifies
Ids position by Instances which have come
under his own observation and in his own
riactice. Men have apcalcd to him for
lice when suffering from an impulse or
emotion to kill and destroy their dearest
friends 'or members of their own family.
In every caso such Impulses filled those
who labored under them with horror.
Dr.-JlAMMo.vn did not fall to warn them
that it wns entirely within their owcr to
ivcrcpine the impulse by a proper exercise
of the will and that if they failed to do so
they would deserve ihe same punishment
sis meted to the ordinary and malicious
murderer. Lunatics In asylums are
untenable to discipline. Dr. Caiitentbb
is quoted as believing that two-thirds of
the women who arc subjected to tho re
straint of asylums are brought there by in
dulgence of an orlglnalljUmrt temper; Dr.
JIaimoI) believes not only Wiatjsclf con
trol can be made to aid in curing insanity,
btitlbatltwlll in many casesprevent it.
Ills opinion that the will powcrin chil
dren sbpuUl bo carefully cultivated; and
that education should be so directed will
nurely be approved by all judicious people.

llVIiy lp Not Mare Women Marry?
- New Yohk, March 2.
To'tlie ntmvi'i DiparluuM tf (ht Xtw Yoil-
I hnvo seen several articles U your very
interesting paper on the subject, "Why
do not more women marry if" Thero
liavo been various answers given, but 1
think the true reason is because they are
not asked. In Now York City I am now
speaking of tho upper class tljero are two
women toovcry man, and it Is manifestly
Impiobablc that every girl should have a
proposal, and oven If the number of girls
ami men were equal, there, would still bo
agieatnianv clrls who would die "old
maids." All girls aro anxious to bu mar
ried, but I am sorry to say the men aro
not. Why this Is so 1 do not know, for
thero arc no happier people than thoinar
rled men. 1). L. H.
Tho president of tho General Federation
of Woman's Clubs writes tho Woman's
"Many women do not marry because
they do not meet tho mini who truly
loves them and w horn they truly lovo lu
return. Others because they will not
many for a home, or to pteaso friendv, or
to csciqio it life of single blessedness.
Somo are una ml able, eoquetlsh, un
cultured, extravagant and exacting. They
luck marriageable qualities. Others from
observation fear to murry lest ther ilitil
themselves hi nu uncongenial relation
from whlih thero would bo no escape.
They had lather bear tho ills they liavo
than to II; to others they know not of,

HI TUB RICHMOND DOCTOR.
Ho Didn't l'co 31 r. Tlliln, Who Hint to
When young Dr. Blank arrived at tlio
hotel, says an article In tho Now York
JtiraUl day beforo yesterday, ho was
"sized up" by Mr. Toylor Tilibs, who Im
mediately remarked that "Yd kin always
bunk on a Rlchmoii' gcn'lcmaii, spcslily
n doctor man."
Dr. Blank, or "Doc," ns ho was called,
Is well known In Richmond social circles,
nnd nltogcther Is one of the Jouncjso dorce
of Hint town.
Tho hotel lu question is n well-known
fumlly resort on tho West Side, mostly
pntronl7Cd by Southerners. Mr. Tibbs.
whonlso hnlls f rom itichmoml, occupies
n position of general utility in tho hotel,
but mainly occupies himself In attending
to the Indiv Idiiul wants of tho guests.
For a week Mr. Tlbbs had been assidu
ous lu his attentions upon young Dr.
Blank, but ns yet no fee hnd been forth
ccmlng. This mado poor Tibbs feel
rather uneasy, hut, as hoagalu remarked,
"Yo' kin bank on a Richmon' gen'leman
every time." Finally, "Doc's" visit came
to an end nnd Taylor wns nsked to accom
pany him to Jersey City, where tlio Doc
tor wns to tnko the train for homo, inci
dentally, Tavlor had to carry a heavy
vallso and other traps of tho doctor's on
tho trip oyer.
Theuicxtday Tavlor wns reported sick
In bed. It finally leaked out that "Doc"
hadn't "panned out" as expected. As it
comcqucncc of which Taylor's Ideas re
garding "Klchmon' gcn'lcmcn" under
went n decided change. Hero Is tho story
he finally told:
"Yo' kin jess niake-upyo' nilii'datwlieii
yo' sec n man from Richmon' bo's less tho

Why, sakca alive, 1 was mos dead when I
