DISEASES OF THE WILL. Some Strange Manifestations Mental Aberration. of Persona Who Wish to Do the Simplest Acts at Everyday Life Are Stopped by a Falling Will Power a Man Who Couldn't Put on His Coat. Persons who are interested in the cu rious side of human nature should look into the work of the French doctor and scientist Ribot; on the diseases of the human will, where are to be found some extraordinary instances of men and women losing their powers of volition in regard to certain acts while they keep fully ective and healthy in all others. Eschewing all research as to first causes Ribot takes volition as a form of activity and studies it in a purely path ological sense. That strange power in us which every day says "I will," that power which "summons, suspends or dis misses," as another Frenchman, Renou- vter, defines it; that force in us and be hind us which, in its ultimate possibili ties, can hardly be limited, is shown in this work to be subject to the strangest diseases and to be modified in the most peculiar manner. There are some persons, says the Chi cago Times, and they enter into all the daily circle of life, whose wills are so soft and pliant that they need the strength of another will to be joined to theirs before they can act. This common phase of a weak will is accen tuated in disease to a degree hardly deemed possible by the nonobservant. Persons suffering from this form, of diseased volition can will themselves according to the dictates of reason. They can feel a desire to act, but they cannot make a move toward that end. They are powerless to translate that desire into an act. Esquirol mentions in this instance the case of a magistrate highly distin guished for his learning and his powers as a speaker, who was seized with mo nomania in consequence of certain troubles of the mind. lie regained his season, but would not go into the world again, though he acknowledged him self to be in the wrong in not doing so. When advised to travel or to attend to his much-neglected affairs ha would say: . 'I know that I ought to do so, but I am unable. Your advifie is very good, and I wish I could follow it. It is cer tain that I have no will save not to will, far I have my reason unimpaired. I know what I ought to do, but strength fails me when I ought to act." The case of the magistrate, however, is hardly as strange as that recorded by Prof. J. H. Bennett of a man vho could not carry out what he wished to perform, even to the simplest acts of daily life. ...... Often, on endeavoring to undress, this man was two hours before he could get his coat off. All his mental facul ties were perfect, but his will was im paired. Once he ordered a glass of water.. When the servant brought it he was utterly unable to take it off the tray, though he was most anxious to do so. The servant waited half an hour 'before him, at the? end of which time the man overcame the diineulty, seized the glass and drank down its contents. He described his feelings afterwards "as if another person had taken posses sion of his will." The abuse of opium produces a some what similar condition. De Quincey says: "The opium eater loses none of his moral sensibilities or aspirations. Ee wishes and longs as earnestly as ever to realize what he believes to be possible and feels to be exacted by duty. Eat his intellectual apprehension of what is possible infinitely outruns its power, not of execution only, but even the power to attempt." Another curious instance quoted by Dr. Uilliod of Xancy is that of a man who was greatly frightened at thirty years of ag-e by certain civic tumults in which he, unfortunately, became in volved. Thereafter, though he retained perfectly his mental balance, he would not remain alone, either on the street or m his chamber, but was always ac companied. If he went out it was im possible for him to return alone. 'Whenever he went out alone, which he rarely did, he would soon halt on the street and there remain indefinite ly, neither going on or turning back, unless some one led him. ''He seemed to have a will, but it was that of those around him. Whenever the attempt was made to overcome this resistance of the man he would fall into 5kwcor;." There are dozens of persons who every year take refuge in asylums be cause they are- tormented all the time with the impulse to kill those who are dear to them. "Sometimes," says Ribot, "fixed ideas of a character frivolous or unreason able find lodgment in the mind, which, . though it deems them absurd, is pow erless to prevent them from passing into acts." Westphal tells of a man who was haunted by the thought that he might perchance commit to writing that he had been guilty of some crime and lose the paper. "lie accordingly care fully preserves every bit of paper he finds and even picks them up on the street and examines them."- He knows it is folly, but he is- powerless to dis miss it. Lesion of the brain will sometimes cause loss of will. A man who had re ceived a violent blow vrhish destroyed part of the frontal convolutions lost all will power, - V.'hen an operation was performed and the pressure of the skull on the brain was removed he completely recovered. RICHEST MAN IN THE WORLD. Ellm DemidofT, Russian Whose Wealth Is of Recent Creation. Like the English millionaires, those of the czar's dominions mostly derive their revenues from landed property. While the Briton, however, devotes a large part of his gross income toward improving his possessions and to the amelioration of the lot of his tenants in one way or another, the Russian, on the other hand, extracts every farthing that he can from his property and spends it upon himself, the result being that agriculture in Russia is going from bad to worse, that formerly fer tile and productive estates have now become barren and impoverished, and that, while the peasantry are in a state of misery bordering on famine, the nobles themselves have been obliged to mortgage or sell their lands, and are at the end of their financial tether. Of coarse, there are some exceptions, such as, for instance, the YouspupoCs, the Demidoffs and the Seheremctieffs. The wealth of the Demidoffs is so vast, ac cording to the New York Tribune, that it is beyond calculation, and strangely enough the fortune is of relatively re cent creation, its founder having been a country blacksmith in the days of Pe ter the Great. It was while traveling in the Ural mountains that the latter broke one of his most valuable English pistols. A village smith mended it so quickly and so well that the czar was delighted and naked the man's name. "Demidoff.'I shall remember you," said he as he rode off. The poor man was beginning to think that Peter had for gotten him when there came an official document adorned with the imperial seal, granting him the freehold of a great tract of crown land in the neigh borhood of the village. Demidoff went to work on his new property and found there inexhaustible mines of iron, sil ver and malachite. Young Elim Dem idoff he does not bear in Russia the Italian title of prince generally pre fixed to his name by foreigners is at the present moment the richest man in the world, Princess Yousoupott, with her great turquoise mines, coining next in rank.. Fortunately, both of them are more Iree-hanaea ana generous than their respective immediate pred ecessors as head of the family, the late Anatole Demidoff and the late Prince Yousoupoff having been alike renowned for their meanness and avarice, of which almost incredible stories are re lated. THE DREAM OF CHEMISTRY. Hopes in Time to Produce ralatable Beef steak! Oat of the Elements. The electrician has one dream and the social philosopher has another. But the chemist has also a vision of the alchemist of the dark ages. This -is : how he would solve the problems of j comfort and happiness which have been ' put to the human race: "The chemist hopes for a synthetic beefsteak, for a chemical loal, for a cup of coSee made, like his sodawater extracts, out of inorganic matter. lie ! wants to see the day when a synthetic j climate shall envelop the earth, when the rainmaker shall be a prophet and man shall hold the string to the unruly bags of Aeolus. "In that day the food and raiment of mankind will be produced in the crucibles of the chemist. Once more verdure will clothe the fields now de faced by human toil, and the shaggy woods will spring anew on the de spoiled slopes of the hills. There will be no tilling or harvest, no slaughter ing of tame beasts. Out of the original elements . chemistry will compound chops and cutlets, knead the dough and brew ale. "The battle has already been partly won in the case of medicines and drugs. The wine at the table d'hote never saw the vineyard. The 'prize fruit flowers' of the drug store are innocent of the orchard and garden. Synthetic chem istry is yet young. It has made great advances in the production of glycerine and sugar. It has four thousand devr tees in this country who hope to make the dream a reality." Notice. In the Probate Court of Maricopa county, Ariz., in the matter of the estate of J. A. Crosa, deceased.
