out and let's go home to break
fast." John Walsh, of . Wisconsin,,
tried to speak for Wilson. The
delegates yelled at him to "cut
oufthe hot air.
The delegates were tired, and
their nerves were all on edge and
they'd had enough oratory for
one night.
Most of them thought they'd
had enough whejidBryan " was

facts and figures on lunacy. Iji
1910 England had under care
133,157 persons declared to be ijl
sane, an increase of 262 per' cent
in 50 years, while the population
has increased by only 85 per cent,
and, declares Sir Browne, it's
largely because the English are
acquiring the American spirit of
The "burden of bread winning
is being transferred from muscles
to nerves. Moreover, moderji
transportation is aiding in the
general nervous breakdown.
Every time you dodge an auto
mobile or a street car, a sudden
sharp demand is made upon your
nerves. Ordinary city life is be
coming more and more full of
such demands, and hence, the
lunatic asylums are filled up.
Heredity and disease have little
to do with it, says Sir Browne.
The English speaking races are
simply going it too fast.
Well, we don't know much'
about this matter, but if you add
to the folks made lunatic by,
dodging cars, autos a'nd cycles,
the people who drive those ma
chines, we can account for sotne
of the increase in lunacy, any
how. -
