Open-Air Exerrlie and Cheerful Employment Are l’rcveu tat Ivor. This is a disorder of the nervous sys tem. It occurs chiefly in girls between 13 and 23 years of age, because at that yxziiyju VJl liiC LUC L'UUMUUllUn IS 011611 in a somewhat unsettled condition; but men also sometimes suffer from It, though very rarely, compared to women. “Hysteria," says an eminent physi ;ian. "is in some instances distinctly traceable to digestive disturbances, es pecially long-continued constipation. Causes referable to the mode of life in which girls are brought up and to their general habits aid materially in its pro duction, such as want of useful employ ment, indolent and luxurious habits, overpetting and spoiling, subjection to the petty worries of fashionable life, keeping late hours at parties or reading sentimental novels." Healthy living, open-air exercise and plenty of cheerful employment are the great preventives of this ailment. Bad feeling, overwork and long-con tinued grief and anxiety may lead to hysteria, as well as the opposite condi tions of too luxurious living. As a rule, a at of hysterics occurs when other people are present; it never comeg on during sleep. There is first sighing, sobbing, laug^ ing and moaning, if the pstgyu - ^ sympathized with foolishly and fussed over, she will then go on talking and gesticulating wildly, struggle violently and throw herself about, clenching her hands and feeling as if a ball were ris ing in her throat to suffocate her. She may appear to lose consciousness, but if you touch her eyeballs she will open her eyes quickly enough. She will never fall so as to injure her self. as people do in epileptic flu. As hysteria chiefly occurs In people who are not in the habit of self-control, injudicious sympathy aggravates the symptoms. (.'beetle Tout.
