Startling Increase During forty Years Shown liy the Tables of Mortality—Some of the Causes —Climate an Important factor—The Four Hundred All flight. Dr. S. Weir Mitchell of Philadelphia, a recognized authority on nervous diseases, In a recent interview hail some very inter esting things to say with regard to what he considers "'the characteristic malady of the American nation." Possibly as a specialist he may lie unconsciously disposed to over state t lie case, hut hie observation and ex perience are, be claims, re-enforced liy statis tics that show that nervous disorders are increasing in an alarming ratio every year. The number of deaths from this cause is already appalling and is steadily growing. In some of the busy centers. Dr. Mitchell is reported ns saying, the "tables of mor tality show that the proportion of nerve death lins multiplied more than 30 times in the last -10 years and that now the nerve deaths number more than one-fourth of all the deaths recorded. What is most shock ing iu these returns is that this fearful loss of life occurs mainly among young people of both sexes. This means that the Amer icans arc fast becoming a short lived poo tie. and if they were shut in on themselves for only « few years and without any in flux of vitality by immigration the publi cation of the census would send a pang of horror and alarm throughout the land." Dr. Mitchell is of the opinion that the first and most potent cause of the preva lence of nervous diseases Is to lie found in the climate, but why the climate tends to produce t hem ho does not undertake to ex plain, unless it be the frequent anti sudden changes of temperature jtecullar to some of the more thickly settled sections. What is certain, ho says, is "that, people coming largely from the phlegmatic races undergo a change of temperament here and become excitable, emotional and irritable in a de gree I hat is unknown in any other part of the world." Another effect of the Amer ican climate, be thinks, is "tlidt it makes the strain of either mental or physical labor much more severe thin It is else where," people being able to work much longer and harder with head and hands without injurious consequences in England and on the continent than in this country. The climate iu many seclious of the United States Is unquestionably very try ing, and its effect upon the general phys ical constitution may Im inauifcstcd very frequently in impairment of the nervous system. But it is extremely doubtful if it can lie regarded ns "the most potent cause" of the national malady, The ot her causes to which Ur. Mitchell refers are probably in the largest measure responsible for the unfortunate conditions which lie notes— namely, the mad rusli and perpetual strain of our business life, which ruins the health of our men, and the hothouse system of education, which wrecks the constitutions of our girls. That it is unhealthy physical aud mental conditions rather than the climate which produce these results is suggested by the fact cited by Dr. Mitchell that the preva lence of the more serious nervous discuses is in almost exact proportion to tins conges tion of population. People who live calm, quiet , wholesome lives iu the country are far less liable to them than the inhabitants of cities, where the strain on mind and body is greater and where the physical en vironment offers little opportunity for healing by natural means the evils of arti ficial mid unhealthy modes of existence. Over the climate, whether It be good or bod, wo hare, as he says, no control, hut for the "dollar devil" and the educational devil wo are responsible, and with regard to them he utters somo strong words of pro fessional warning. We pride ourselves on the early age at which American men reach positions of responsibility, but t hey do so at the cost of t lie delicate nervous machin ery that is essential to happiness as well us health. The male American, after being tortured by the exactions of a despotic school system, enters business "fur too young, and he straightway consumes his vital energy till not hing is left but dust and ashes." The end of it all is "a country of young invalids, young wrecks, young drug Victims, young inebriates, young maniacs, young suicides." The educational devil does its work quite as effectively iu regard to the girls, "Thu flower of American womanhood," says Dr, Mitchell, "is wilted by ovefcnl uire liefere it comes fully into bloom." The long hours, the multiplicity of studies, the ambition of parents and teachers who stimulate their pupils to exertions far be yond I heir strengt li aud the attendant evils of hurried meals, want of exercise, broken sleep and excitement "condemn lens of thousands of American women to a life of misery and uselessness before they have ceased to be children." It would be better, bo maintains, that American girls should not he educated at all until they are 17, after which they may study with less risk, than that they should be over wrought as they are at present. The leisurely, pleasure seeking classes, he points out, are comparatively free from nervous disease. "They toil not, neither do they spin. They dress warm and com fortably. They eat and drink plentifully and of the best. They have constant vari ety and relaxation, and they do not bother themselves about anything in particular. If the mass of American women led the life of the Four lluudred, specialists in nervous diseases would find their occupa tion gone. For cue woman who breaks down through fashionable folly a score are destroyed by overstrain iu the serious af fairs of life." Iu short, the national malady is due to the character of our national life. We are in too much of a hurry about everything. Wo run our brains and our nervous systems on the plan of a lightning express and ex pect them to work from morning till night on the principle of rapid transit. In fact, we are too rapid by half, and Dr. Mitchell warns us that if we persist in this rapidity we shall "transit" nationally ns quickly as we have develop«!.—Baltimore Sun. : » 10 Looking For a Barber Shop, Signor Leoncavallo, the composer of the opera "Pagliaccl," once visited England when he was a struggling music master eight or nine years ago and tells an amus ing story of the results of his ignorance of Vhe English language.
