'li conflict, tbat thirty years ago we made a Wkf B" 'm compact regarding the protection of the BKfBlr ,ti' Nicaragua Canal route analogous to the Bf BO'll! one of fifty years ago with New Granada K-. W i& relating to tbo Panama route. BtiMBJMdBk The Dlcklnsou-Ayon treaty, ratified June BBJBBBBBV SO, 1808, declares In Article XV. that BBBBBBB "the Uulted States hereby agree to ex. BflBBBfBa tend their protection to all such routes of BBBBBjAWr communication as aforesaid, and to guar. BJIdkBB aintea go neutrality and Innocent use of. tho aaaie." Ajraln. after provision for establishing free ports at each end of the line. It Is added that "the United Statca shall also be at liberty, on giving notlco to the Government or authorities of Nica ragua, to carry troops and munitions of war ln their own vessels, or otherwise, to either of said frco porta," provided they aro not to be employed against Central American nations friendly to Nicaragua. In tho next article provision is made for tho employment of our forces to protect persons and property along: the canal route. In case Nicaragua for any reason should not so protect them, and even for so acting without obtaining previous consent In the exceptional case of unforeseen or Imminent danger to tho Uvea or property of citizens of the United States. As a fact, in tho recent instance. Presi dent Zelata notified Commander Lkdtzb of tho approach of the Government troops, and thereupon our marines wero landed. President Zeulta's Government is also tho only authority wo rccognlzo there, so that our movements wero doubtless fully in accord with his plans. But It has been well to recall our treaty rights, since, tho canal route Is well enough established to require protection, which will grow more and more important. Xioadcd ? Referring to tho attitude of the Hon. RicnAnn Franklin Pettiorkw of South Dakota, upon the question of annexing Hawaii, the Courier-Journal remarks : "There It eome reason for the peculiar tenderness about Mr. rrmiuw, He Is supposed to be loaded. He has been to Hawaii, and has taken the opinion ot the natlTes at to annexation. It It feared that some of the reflations that he "III make may hare an Impression on the mlidsof the people not farorable to the Job which Ur. IUli anl his associates are try leg to put through," Yes, Pettiobew has been to Hawaii. That is beyond dispute. Yet wo think that the Courier-Journal docs not quite understand the Hawaiian situation, so far as the great Pettigrew Is concerned. He may bo loaded, but wc have not heard that ln any well-Informed quar ter there Is much apprehension concerning any revelations that Ac may make. Pettiorew Is on enterprising statesman. He enjoys a personal acquaintance with tho members of President Dole's administra tion. Pettiqrew knows them, and they know him. Perhaps it Is not Pettiqrew that is loaded, after all. Lord Salisbury' Speech. It Is evident from the speech mado by Lord Salishury In the House ot Lords on Tuesday, that England has retreated from the position which she originally took when sho named the conditions on which sho would guarantee a loan to China. It is also a fair inference from his words that tho retreat was made because the British Government feared to provoke a hostile combination too strong to bo resisted. As for the optimistic assurance that England's Interests arc not threatened, but that all which has been done by Russia and Ger many will be for her advantage In the end, we doubt If this will bo accepted by well informed and far-seeing men, or even by the bulk of the Premier's own followers. Lord Salishuut admits that, in return for guaranteeing a loan to China, he insist ed upon the opening of certain new treaty ports, Including Tallenwan. The motive for designating Tallenwan is unmistaka ble. That port, at present, has no trade, and will not have until tho Russians shall havo completed a branch railway from the main Siberian line to Port Arthur. Rut, if it were made a treaty port ln advance, it would remain perpetually In Chinese hands under the guarantee of the treaty powers, and would thus constitute a serious ob struction to Russia's design of acquiring control of the Liao-Tungpeninsula. Tallen wan would command the railway to Port Arthur; a British fleet stationed at that strategic coign of vantage would render the railway useless to Russia in time of war, und would isolate the naval fortress of Port Arthur. Lord Salisbury and his colleagues must have known, when they made the demand at Pekln, with reference to Tallenwan, that they were endeavoring to thwart what has been ono of the main objects of Russia's diplomacy in the far East ever since the revision of the Shimo nosekl treaty. They must havo contem plated the possibility that Russia would fight sooner than renounce her hope of ftcnnirlnir the Liao-Trmir neninuln. nnrl. nt tho time when Sir Michael Hicks-Beach made his high-spirited declaration, they must havo intended to oppose force by force. It may, indeed, be said, and bos been said, that the Rritish diplomatists asked for more than they hoped to get, and that they meant, from the first to withdraw the de mand touching Tallenwan. as soon as China should consent to the other conditions of a loan prescribed by them. It is Impossible to reconcile this view of the caso with the assertion made by Sir Michael and also by A. J. Dai.iour, that England would not al low China to be pillaged, for the Llao-Tung peninsula, bounding, as it does, the Gulf of Pe-chl-li on one side. Is of vital mo ment to the Chinese Empire. Moreover, It docs not appear that In return for tho with drawal of the demand concerning Tallen wan, the Pekln Government has agreed to the other conditions attached by England to a loan. On the contrary, according to the latest telegrams from China, the whole plan ot accepting a loan from England has fallen through. That Is to say, In spite of the bold words uttered by Sir Michael Hicks-Beach, the Salisbury Cabinet has done nothing to frustrate the acquisitive Intentions of Russia or of Germany, May it not be said, however, that Eng laud has obtained some compensatory ad vantages for the territorial acquisitions made by other powers f Lord Salisbdrt tried to convince his hearers that she has by declaring that Russia has promised that, after arquirlng Tallenwan, sho nill make it a free port, and that Germany has given the same assur ance with regard to Kiao Chou. Does any one believe tbat the promise would be kept after the completion of a railway had enabled Russia to maintain a large army In Liao-Tung, and after Port Arthur hod been converted Into an impregnable naval stronghold I Rnssla once bound herself never to maintain vessels of war In the Black Sea, but when, some fourteen years later, a favorable conjuncture arrived, she coolly informed the British Government that she repudiated the obligation. To any one who is capable ot judging the future by the past, it must be patent tbat, if the pillage of China Is to be averted and the treaty rights of England are to be preserved In their Integrity, the work of prevention must be done tonday, while Russia Is weak in the far East, and while England and Japan, united, might he roasters on both land and sea. Lord Salisbury himself, in one part of his speech, points ont how easy and common It Is for what begins with a protectorate to lapse Into annexation; We havelately seen tho process accomplished In Tunis and Madagascar. How, then, can Lord Balis Dtmr doubt that the regions which will be at first euphemistically described by Ger many and Russia as spheres of Influenco will ho eventually annoxed by those pow ers! What, then, will beeomo of Eng land's treaty rights with Chins, so far as the territories thus annoxed are concerned I On tho face ot Lord Salisbury's admis sions, it seems clear that England has backed down. Sho has backed down bo cause she was afraid to face a combination ot Russia, Germany, and France. That this fear was operative may Iks deduced from another passage of tho Premier's speech. We refer to the significant words : "Thero Is a much moro serious danger of overtax ing our strength. However strong wo may be, there Is a point beyond which our strength does not go. It Is courage and wisdom to exert tbat strength to Its attain able limit, but madness and ruin to pass it." Stress is laid, also, on the "extreme Importance" of avoiding "tho rashness which, more than onco in history, has been the ruin ot nations as great and as power ful as ourselves." Caution Is a virtue, no doubt, in states men, but it may bo carried to excess. An American onlooker Is prompted to recall to Lord Salisbury tho words ot Patrick Henry: "They tell us, sir, that wo are weak; but when shall wo be stronger I" Will England be stronger in Chinese waters when a railway shall have permitted Russia to place a great land force In Manchuria, when the Russian war fleet nt Port Arthur shall have been doubled, and when Japan, falling to receive the rest of tho Indemnity due her from China, shall havo had to dis band a great part ot her army and renounce her plans for tho enlargement of her fleet! Two Things Left Undone. The Tammany administration has been dilatory in the performance of two duties laid down in the charter with a clearness that forbids their being bundled with the alleged uncertainties with which the char ter Is charged on other points. Wo refer to the appointment of an Art Commission, for tho city at large, and a Landscape Archi tect for tho Park Department. The ma terial, we believe, from which tho Art Commission Is to be made has been fur nished to the Mayor ln tho manner pre scribed, and still there is no commission. Big as New York Is, it is, in tbo char acter of its public monuments of all sorts, ln the main crude. Inferior, laughable to cities of earlier enlightenment, and unsat isfactory, if not mortifying, to the mass of Its inhabitants. A similar, and, on the whole, more Im portant duty imposed upon the Park Com mission has been substantially neglected also. In order to create In tho Park De partment a bulwark ot real and permanent strength for its peculinr and delicate prop erty against the accidents of ignorance, and of politics, there was put into the charter a direction to the Park Board to appoint a Landscape Architect, who should be clothed with the right of de ciding negatively upon any schemo of park reconstruction or design. The intent was to furnish to the city the guarantee ot a professional reputation against the misuse of park property, for which hith erto the powers of reckless Commission ers have been absolute and without re straint. Yet, among the Park Board's first moves was tho dismissal of the only man In the department worthy ot consideration for the place, Mr. Sam rEL Parsons, the Superintendent, and a somewhat shady appointment ns "land scape gardener" of a member of the park force whose credentials for such a post aro scarcely more than a shadow. Mr. Rose, who was appointed originally as a garden er, wo believe, through the agency of tho late Commissioner Stiles, has been asso ciated mainly with flowers, which, how ever beautiful, arc the last added and least significant element of a park. Judged by a letter which he wrote upon his appoint ment, of the fundamental Ideas of park making he is wholly ignorant. He bos no professional reputation to lose. He is prob ably wholly without the power or tho im pulse of resistance to ignorance's nrbitrary mal-adminlstratlon of the parks which the charter intended that he should have. And yet, what better guarantee of Inten tion to follow the law in pood faith, and to respect the public interest in all its vari eties, could Tammany havo offered than the address delivered by Mr. RicnARD CnoKEH to the important members of the organiza tion assembled on Jan. 21 : "Let no man be unfaithful to his trust, for should he be. he will not find a more unrelenting and vigorous prosecutor than will be the Tammany Hall organization. Should any man attempt to Induce you by threats or otherwise to disregard your oaths of office and the interests of the people, report the matter to the organiza tion, and be he ever so Influential he will bo punished. The organization is on trial." More Ilevenuo Cutters Needed. A bill pending in Congress authorizes the construction of eight new revenue cut ters. The proposed addition is large, but seven out of tbecight are to be substitutes for existing craft which, according toSecre tary G aoe, should be "condemned and sold as soon as it Is possible to replace them." The Seward Is an old wooden side-wheeler, " practically worn out, unseaworthy, and not worth extenslvo repairs." The Mc. Lane, which served as a gunboat in the civil war, cost originally $30,000, while on her repairs the sum of $113,278 has been expended, and she Is ot obsoleto type. The Colfax Is a side-wheeler of iron, wood, sheathed, twenty-six years old, and not worth a large repair outlay. The Bout well, " owing to bad design, Is not now and never was a seaworthy vessel." The Washington and the Chandler are small wooden tugs, acquired from the navy In 18GS. The Hamlin Is also a wooden tug " past repairing," after an active service of thirty-one years. THie first cost of these seven vessels was $233,100, and $300,018 has been expended on repairing them. They are still used because no others are available, rather than because it Is true economy to patch them up. The eighth vessel desired Is one of special construction for the Columbia River bar and the neighborhood. For the Yukon a small craft Is to be furnished under a different bill. The period ot reconstruction has now come for the revenue marine, as It came for the navy fifteen years ago. Indeed, a few modern Teasels have already been provided. Bat when we see the great importance and variety of the duties Imposed on the revenue cutters, from sealing patrol work in Behrlng Sea to the execution of the quarantine and neutrality laws among the Florida Keys, and of the customs and nart- gatlon statutes along thousands of miles of ocean and lake coast, there should be no laek ot competent Teasels for these tasks. As built and armed hereafter, they can also become useful gunboats in case ot war. The Senate In the Fifty-fourth Congress passed bills for tho construction ot revenue cutters for the Pacific and Gulf coasts, but those blltsdld not reach a vote ln the House. Tlio South and Brynnlsm. Tho PopullsUof Georgia have called their Stato Convention for March 10. This Is three months In advance of tho time when such conventions aro held usually In Geor gia, and the haste is Interpreted by the Atlanta Constitution as simply an attempt of tho Populist leaders to magnify their office, which will bo futile so far as concerns tho votes of the rank and file ot the Georgia Populists. These citizens, it says, "oppos ing every phase of Republicanism," are un willing " to throw any obstoclo In tho way ot Democratic doctrine, provided only that the doctrine be genuine," that is, strictly according to the Chicago platform. Tho ndvico ot tho Coruttffuf ton, however, Is that the Democrats also shall start their campaign as soon as practicable and nomi nate a ticket so " genuinely Democratic" that even the " irreconcilablcs among the Populists" will havo no ground on which to oppose It. Such a nomination will ac tually be mode, says the Atlanta paper, and "tbo Democrats confidently expect to roll up a majority of 100,000" in tho cam paign, " which, it Isconceded, will be one ot the most enthusiastic, so faros the Demo crats are concerned, that has taken place slnco tho memorable campaign in the seventies." The situation in Georgia, as thus de scribed, seems to be similar to that in the Southern States generally. Tho Middie-of-t he-Road Populist leaders are seeking to keep up their separate party organization for their personal profit, but the great Pop ulist voto is now in hearty accord with "genuine Democratic doctrine" and In op position to the Republican party. These voters are ready to turn in eagerly to help along. Brynnlsm by arraying tho solid South behind It. Tho present "genuine" Democracy suits them, their resistance having been only to the sort In vogue be fore the Chicago platform. This means that political expediency will dictate the running of the Democratic cam paign of this year In every Stato of the South on the Chicago platform strictly and emphatically, and the sending of delega tions to the National Democratic Conven tion In 1000 which will be solidly and un compromisingly for stralghtout Bryanlsm.

This vigorous Hryanlto of Tennessee states vi hut is not true, but one must acquit It of de liberate misrepresentation. For tho ridiculous falsehood, and miln prop of Repudiation, which It has here adopted, it has the authority of prac tically tho solid Cuckoo-MucwumD canp, which, in order to force through their scheme for bank currency, havo not hesitated to slander tho national currency to the crave peril of the cause of honest money itself. The Cleveland bonds were caused mainly by deficiency of revenue. If at the bejrlnnine of Cletvel vxd'9 term tho revenue had equalled the Kcdor.il expenses there would bavo been no need of bonds. If Cleveland had bad a really honest mind the unfortunato burdening ot tho sound honest money with a load of a grossly false accusation would have been prevented.

The aeronaut Si'encer has just passed In a balloon from England to France, aieendlnc at the I-ondon Crystal Palace, and ln a few hours reaching lioulogne. This recalls tho first balloon Journey over the Channel, an Ameri can, Dr. Je Fines, bulug one of the two pioneer voyagers ho attemptcJ It. Dr. JkFPitiES and the professional BLANCllAnD accomplished the feat ns long ago as January, 1785, only a year and a half after the first bal loon was sent up to a height of 1,500 feet by the Montooli'ikrs, the paper inaLera of Annonay. nnd a littlo more than a year after Pilatre des ItosiElis and the Marqnls D Amlandes made the first aerial voyage of a balloon with passen gers over tho roofs of Paris. It eeems strango that, while in other depart ments of human Invention the modern strides havo been so prodigious, aeronautics have ac complished comparatively little advance. Eren tho journey across the Ilritish Channel has not often been performed ln the last century, al though much longer ones havo been achieved, such as that of the balloon called the Touring Club, from I'.wis !o Afen.adlstnnceof 375mlles, tbat of the Ville d'Orleans which started from Paris during tlio Franco-German war nnd was carried to Nomny, and tbat of tho Gen. Cbanzy, which brought up at a ton a in Bavaria. In July, 1690, tho Torpllleur. with the famous aeronaut. L'IIoste. and M. Maxoot, excited much talk by starting from Cherbourg and landing at London, tbe very point intended, while only last year the Channel was again sue cessfully crossed. Still, tho very fact thatoach new performance of tho feat arouses public Interest suggests tbe comparatively small ad vance effected since the famous Channel Journey ot 113 years ago. Sttt.

Beastxralle Blterceaelea Which attract At (entlesk Auiaxt, Feb. 0. There aro fourteen Demo crats In the present State Senate, and not one of them comes from a district north ot the boun dary line between the city ot New York and the city of Yonkera. There are sixty-nine Demo crats in the Assembly, and tho overwhelming majority ot them come from what is known as "down the river" districts. Several Demo crats were chosen because ot Republican divis ion or disaffection In districts hardly ever car ried by the Democrats. There is. for instance, a Democratic representative ot Cortland county, the first almost In the memory cf tho oldest Cap itol statesman. Cortland Is ono of thn solid Ro publican counties. but, with two Republicans in the field for Assemblyman, this year it went Dem ocratic Another strong Republican county which has a Democratic Assemblyman Is Clin ten, which gaveOov. Black more than 2,800 ma jority in 1890. Thero Is a Democratic repre sentative, too, from Schenectady, which Black carried by nearly 1,000. and hlch went repub lican on tho State ticket this year. Niagara county gave a Republican majority last year of 1.600. but this year, through party divisions. It has two Democratic Assemblymen. Ono vlslblo result of the Brynnlte canvass and of tbe identification of tho Democratic party In New York with tho Populists, tho Farmers' Alliance men. the Greonbackers. and the "Ad vanccd Prohlbltlonlsta," has been to diminish it not demolish tho Democratic lend In the laree cities, and to bring to tho Democratic column many voters in tho farming districts, former Oreenbackers or Populists, for whom the 10-to-l fallacy has many of tbe rbarms which formerly attended the attractive issue ot "Inflation" cheap money and dobts easily paid. Tlio success ot tbo Democrats In somo isolated districts ot the forming sections of tho State at last year's election, ln constituencies herotoforo Republican, led these Democratic representatives to believe that tho preference of tbo voters for them and for the Democratic party mnr be mado perma nent. They resisted, therefore, tho selection of a New York city man as Democratic leader, have withheld their support from inanr Democratic measures, nnd seem Inclined to Insist that tho policy of tho party in tho State should bo shaped with some reference to tholr views and should not bo wholly subordinated tn tho demand of New York city Democrats.

The Tnla Ltchla ta Dp Replaced br aa Elec tric Deaeoa Visible ririy Mile at Sea. WasniNOTOM, Feb. 9. The Lighthouse Board has finally decided what It will do with the great French lens with which experiments bavo been made at the Staten Island depot. It is to be placed In one of the big lighthouses at tho Highlands, where its rays can sparklo far out on tbe ocean without danger of blinding the , skippers approaching tbo Sandy Hook channel. It was agreed by tbe board some time ago that this powerful lens should be placed in tbo light house at Barnrgat, which has always been re garded as the most important station on the coast next to Fire Island, but further considera tion has led to the new conclusion. Mariners generally protested against placing thx light anywhere In the lower harbor of New York, nnd experiments with the lens at Suten Island demonstrated that It was too powerful for such use. nnd would he a detriment rather thn an aid to commerce if so employed. The onlv place where Its full power can be used profitably Is some point on the coast where thero Is a great extent ot water for the light to play over. Foryearstbo twin HIghlandsTlghts hare been notable to mariners approaching New York. The LUbtbbouse Board believes that with the great electric light at the High lands there can be no possibility of error by skippers, who hare sometimes mistaken tbe Highlands lights for either tbo light ves sels or some other light station, Tho board says tbat with the light ln operation the en trance to New York harbor can be noted by captains fifty miles away. It will be necessary to construct electric apparatus for working the light. No other lighthouse on the coast displays an electric light. If this Is a success and can be molntalneo economically, other first-class light stations will be equipped with electrical power. Artaer far the Battleship. WajmrOTO!r, Feb. 0.

TO FIGHT T11E MSPEX3AHY JXIXL, Its Opponents Meet ana Deride ta Dentf a Comtnlttre ta Albany. Imrsuant to a recent call thero met ln the rooms of the Transportation Club, Hotel Man hattan, last .night, representatives of a number of free dispensaries in New York, to take action on the Sullivan bill, now pending at Albany, which places free dispensaries under thj direct control of tho StateJJoard of Charities. The bill was introduced in tho Legislature at the In stanco of a large number of physicians, with a view to preventing the alleged abuse of free dispensaries J. G. Cannon was elected permanent Presi dent at tbe meeting last evening, and Charles M. Earlo Secretary. It was agreed that tho organization should bo maintained until the fate ol tho bill bad been decided, and that every means should be used to secure Its de teat. The general tenor of the discussion was tn the effect that under the provisions of tho bill the dispensaries would be deprived of tbo right of self -got crnnient and that licenses, after having been granted by the State Board of Charities, could be revoked at any time tho board deemed it advisable. After suggestions were mado as to amend ments. Dr. D. li. St. John Hoosa, President of tho Post-Craduato Medical School and Hospi tal, argued for an unequivocal opposition to the measure. Ho characterized it as an im pudent effort to ta.o charge of tbe free dis Iwtisarics and dictate to men of extended ex perience tho manner in which these dispen s.iries thould br conducted. Dr. Wickcs Washburn, who, as a representa tive of tho County Sledlcnl Society, hod much to do with the formulation of the act, was called upon to defend tbe measure. He read retorts of Investigations which showed tbat fully 55 per cent, of tho people treated nt the free dispensaries were able to pay. Dr. Wash burn's arguments and figures were laugbed at. One gentleman, who refused to give bis name, said that he would not trust the state Board of Charities, although ho was well acquainted with all of its members. "Oh. that bill will never pass." said Dr. ,. B. Mcding, "for it is In tbe hands of Dr. ltoosa, nnd he can kill it If he wanti to. Why, Dr. ltoosa has tho Legislature under his thumb." A motion to appoint n committee of five to appear nt Albanv at .i hearing before the As sembly committee on Feb. Ill was carried with only two dissenting otes. The dissenters were Dr. Julius Weiss, representing the cast side dis pensaries, and Dr. Alexander Hodden, repre senting tho northeastern dispensaries. "If ou gentlemen ieprcent dispensaries that are guilty of abuses, why don't you correct them I" asked ono physician. "Wo do not believe wo are guilty of abuses," 6p!c1 Dr. Weiss, "but wo are perfectly willing to stand tho tesl'cf investigation, and if we are In the wrong to be closed out of business. We bellco thero arc abuses and we want them cor reeled, no mutter who suffers." Funds will bo raised to fight the bill, and a largo de'egat Ion will accompany the committee to Albany.

AaSMUasBUX TUB anCEX-BTSD MOXSTrn. Medical Analysis at the Spirit ar Jealoasj by a Marlled British Doctar. from te Lanctt. Among the multitudinous nnd multifarious cases of disease reported year after year In tbe columns of tho Xaneef I havo not seen a caso ot that very old and commonplaco complaint, Jenl ousy or "spirit of jealousy," as It Is named In tbo Scriptures, where tt Is fully described nnd treated. I would therefore ask permission to mention a caso that has come under my care. Somo years ago I was requested to visit a lady who It was represented to mo was very 111, and who consequently required Immediate attention. ' On entering tho houe I was shown into tbo so called sick room. In which there were throe per sons, all of whom seemed to mo to be In good health. There wro present an old lady (the owner ot tbo house) and her daughter, who had arrived a few days previously from a neighbor ing county to spend two or three weeks wim her mother, nnd the daughter's husband, whose visit was onlv to be for a day or two. Tho man was about 35 years of axe, small in stature, swarthy In comploxlon, and plain looking. The wife was a striking contrast to her husband. Sho was rather toll, remarkably fair and, handsome, and was n few years young cr than her good man. After taking a seat I asked which ot thorn was tho patient, but no answer having been given to my Iniulrv I asked again. Then tho joungcr lady with pome hesitation said: "I am the not lent and my complaint is Icalousr. 1 am jealous of my husband, and If you do not giro mo something to relieve me I shall go out of my mind" This ac cusation against the little man seemed to me to be most ridiculous: Indeed. I could not help thinking that If tho accuser had been tbe ac cused It would havo been more in the nature of things. I assured tho lady I was cxtrcmclv sor ry for her, the more so that I was quite Incom petent to treat such a voe. However, I ml vised that a wise mutual friend should be con sulted who would make thlnga pleasant be tween husband and wife, for that ln all proba bility thero wore no grounds for her suspicion-!. Tbo husband protested his innocence nnd do- I clarcd thero was no cause whatever for her ac cusations. The wife persisted ln rcltcratlnj j them, nnd so tho wrangle went on till suddcnlr I sho fell from her chair on the fioor In a lit, the I spasmodic movements of which were mi strange 1 and varied that it would tie almost Impossible ' to describe them. At one moment the patient was extended at full length with her liodr arched forwanl In n state of opisthotonos. Tho next minute she was in a sitting position with the legs drawn up. making whiiu her hands clutched her throat n guttural noise. Then sno wouui nrow nerscii on ncr uacKnnu inrust her arms nnd legs about to tho no small danger of thoso around her. Then becoming comnara tlvcly quet and supine she would quiver all over, while her eyelids trembled with great ra pidity. This state perhaps would bo followed by general convulsive movements In which she would put herself into the most grotesque pos tures nnd mnko the most unlovely grimaces. At last the fit ended, nnd exhausted and ln tears she was put to bed. Tbo patient was a lithe, muscular woman, and to restrain her movements during tbe attack witn the assist ance at band was a matter ot impossibility, so all that could be dono was to prevent her Injur ing herself and to sprinkle her freely with cold water. The after treatment was more geo grtphlcal than medical. The husband ceased do.'ng business in a certain town where the ob ject of bis wife's suspicions Urcd. He was enabled to do so by the kindness of a friend who exchanged part ot his district with him. This was not a case of epilepsy, for the mus cular spasms ot tbe patient were not exactly similar to those of that disease. Besides, there was no foaming at the mouth, or biting ot the tongue, and consciousness was not, I think, at any time fully at abeyance, as is tbe case la epilepsy. The attack was a well-developed hys terical fit, with a good deal of cataleptic rigidi ty of the muscles. The fit was not the disease, but It was the symptom or manifestation of a mind diseased or deranged, the state of the mind being the result of the woman's broodings over ber real or imaginary wrongs. When the mind of a sensitive person is fixed on an all absorbing subject like that ot jealousy, it may became unhinged, and when this Is the case the brain may. I think, occasionally relieve itself by explosions ot more or less uncontrollable and misdirected muscular energy. It lets oft steam, and perhaps ptevents the boiler from bursting. But jealousy frequently assumes a violent anl destructive character, for as the wisest of the sons of men says: "Jealousy Is cruel as the grave: the cools thereof are coals of fire which hath a most vehement flame," Not long after the above case caroo under my notice I read ln the Standard newspaper an account of three murders, each attributed to jealousy. Again. Jealousy In an unobtrusive form may be found influencing tho course of many dis eases, nnd sometimes it may take such a deep hold on the mind of a patient that it mar ba considered the disease itself. It Is not often, howe er, that a female patient will reveal to a third person tho cause of her mental deprcs- slon. loss of sleep and appetite, and her un- 1 willingness to leave her room and resume out- j door exercise. A husband may throw soma 1 light on n case that is making little or no prog- 1 ress toward recovery. I have had cases tllus- I trative of this kind of jealousy, and have had 1 one lately, and this I know, that ln treating ij them a man requires to be a diplomatist as well 3 as a physician. 2 riratee er tbe Pyramids.
