H. L. SWORDS,
faralysis a Pause of Kleptomania.
Some celebrated European physi
cians, applying the doctrine of the
conservation and correlation of
forces to moral mania, have recently
contributed some important articles
to medical science, showing that
certain physical diseases are the ac
tual causes of kleptomania. Prit
chard cites the case of the wife of a
man of fortune, who was in the
habit of stealing on all occasions
whenever she visited bhops. In this
case, paralysis (partial) and soften
ing of the brain existed. The hus'
band was so overwhelmed with grief
and shame that he left the fascina
tions of the city, and banished him
self to the country, where there
were no shops, but the mania
remained. It is a curious fact that
in one stage of paralysis a delusion
always exists in the mind of the
sufferer that what he steals is his
own property, or has been stolen
from him, and that he merely
reclaims his own. Sometimes he
imagines that God orders him to
steal. Paralysis is sure to cause
stealing in some shape or other,
and stealing, indeed, may be some
times regarded as a symptom of
the disease. This is an important
subject, and one of unusual interest,
worthy of the careful investigation
of the medical scientist.
OBLIGATIONS OF CORlION CAR~IERS.
The Chicago Post thus speak~s of
the obligations of common carriers:
'Whether the great fire was "the act
of God," or primarily the act of a
bovine, it cannot exempt common
carriers from their legal liability for
obligations incurred in the way of
business. The shipper who holds
a receipt, or without one, who can
prove delivery of goods, unless
upon special agreement, has an in
disputable legal claim for any losses.
The doctrine often works hardship
in particular oeaes, but it would be
a much greater hardship to vary the
rule of absolute liability which car
riers incur in their ordinary avoca
tOion Ages of experience have
manctiled the law. Our contempora
ries in the country who seem to be
giving way to fears on the subject
need apprehend' no difficulty in
these eases, even if there is delay.
Railroad companies are not likely
to seriously take a position they
cannot maintain in court. In taking
goods or passengers, for hire, they
take the legal responsibilities in
volved, and cannot evade them.
The extent of a conflagration has
nothing to do with the question, and
is no more the "act of God" than
the burning of a single building. It
would take a volcanic eruption to
change this rule.
