r) In the Fhipps Psychi
atric Clinic, at uaitnaore,
the theory of Dr. Si;nund Frcml, the em
inent German scientist, that the dream is
of actual sisnificance, and that it may be
regarded as a symptom and so analyzed
for therapeutic purpose's, is being prac
tically worked out.
The I'hipps Psychiatric Clinic is prob
ably the most perfectly equipp?d institu
tion of its kind in the world. Its estab
lishment is due to the generosity of Mr.
Henry I'hipps, of Pittsburg, who, moved
by the dark picture of many institutions
for the care of persons suffering from
mental lesions, offered to Johns Hopkins
University the money to build and main
tain a clinic whose purpose should be the
development of science in relation to the
curable forms of disorders of the mind.
Therefore the Pbipps clinic was estab
lished, a luxurious place which looks like
a very beautiful private estate. The
observation room resembles an unusually
large and bandsome drawing room, but it
Is cone the less an observatory, for cun
ningly concealed by the mural decorations
are innumerable points of secret observa
tion from which the patients may be re
garded. There is a charming theatre, a
gymnasium, beautiful gardens, every sort
of provision for the pleasure and varied
life of the patient. Most interesting of
all the features of this wonderful institu
tion is the provision made for gathering
up rifi dreams of the patients. A very
comfortable chair is placed beside the bed
of each patient, because it is sometimes
necessary for a physician to spend the
night in it. It is the duty of this physi
cian immediately'on the awakening of the
patient to get from him the story of his
dreams of the night. Before fhe patient
has had a moment for forgetting, before
any of those singular obsessions which
may possess him in his waking hours have
been permitted to assert themselves, the
physician leans forward, pad and pencil
in hand, and asks in calm and friendly
fashion :
"What did you stream, old fellow?"
He must not weary should the dream
be rambling. He must not falter In the
recording of a single detail. Everything
.counts in dream analyses, and it is dream
aoal7rM which the modern scientists
hope to link with the psychic concatena
tion which must bo followed backward
from the starting point of the patholog
ical idea which possesses the patient to
the germ from which the idea sprang.
So the dream analyst sits beside the
bed of the patient and faithfully gathers
the fragments of the dream as oppor
tunity offers. Suppressed desires, unful
filled wishes, which are not even recog
nized consciously; aspirations, unac
knowledged passions, find their avenue
of expression. It i.s believed, through the
medium of dreams. That is why the
dreams of the patient are o important

the repression of these hidden longings,
wLshes, desires, has contributed to the
disturbed condition of the patient is the
basis on which the analysis of the dream
Is conceived to be of primary significance.
"I must insist," says Dr. Treud, "that!
the dream actually has significance and:
that a scientific procedure in dream inter- i

that affectation, dissimulation or any
other defence against their power to dis

tirely useless. He is a combination of
tenseness and toleration and he is pro

with one glance that he knows all about
you ; then he assures you also with a
glance that it doesn't matter.
The dissection of dream stories is an
everyday part of the Meyer laboratory
work. Dr. Meyer and his assistants
analyze and test these stories and finally
add their findings to all of the other in
formation that they have beea able to
glean about the patient. The subcon
scious wish that is under the dream is one
of the things they are most anxious to
discover, although no thread of the dream
fabric is unobserved.
"What does the soose dream of?" says
is contained in that proverb. The conscious
the ancient proverb, and the answer is
The maize."
"I do not know of what animals dream,"
gays Dr. Freud, "but the whole theory
that the dream is the fulfilment of a wish
wish is not the germ of a dream, which
must have its root in a subconscious wish.
The conscious wish is only t-e motive of
a dream when it succeeds in arousin? a
similar wish in the subconsciousness."
Even more skill than that of Joseph is
needed for the analysis of the dream from
the standpoint of the modern scientist.
The theory does not rest upon manifest
dream content," according to Dr. Freud,
"but upon the thought content which is
found to lie behind the dream by the
process of interpretation." There are two
forces at work in the creation of a dream

censor disfigures the dream by hiding from
him the identity of the diner, since he had
beonr forbidden to eat that evening.
The dream censor was also at work in
the cae of a woman patient who had
been very fond of a pmall son of her sis
ter's. The boy died and the aunt was
later terrified by a very vivid dream in
which the seemed to be attending the
funeral of her surviving nephew, the
brother of the dead boy. She had not
cared so much for the living boy as for
the one that died, and she was horrified
by the thought that her dream might
mean that she wished this remaining
nephew might die. When she told her
dream she admitted, on being questioned,
that her sister, with whom she had lived,
had interfered in a love affair which she
had had with a university professor,
whom it had been tacitly understood that
she would marry.
"Can I be wicked enough to wish that
my sister should be left childless?" the
d i earner asked the psychiatrist.
If the dream had been taken on its sur
face value this of course would have been
its intorpietation, but Dr. Freud believed
the interpretation to be entirely different.
He found out that the last occasion on
whi the young woman had seen tlin
profsor, with whom she was still deeply
in love, was the funeral of her nephew.
In her dream she had reproduced pre
cisely the conditions which prevailed at
this funeral, except that the eccnd
nephew was substituted for the first.
Unwilling to acknowledge oven to her
self her deep longing to see the professor,
her unfulfilled wish expresed itself ia
dreaming out an occasion on which she
would be sure to see him again, since,
as he was an old friend of the family,
it would be necessary for him to appear
at the funeral of the second nephew, as
he had at the first. To disguise her

who dreamed that she was present at a

she had noted this resemblance. The

by the dreamer in the company of an ac

The scientific interpretation of this
dream was that the woman, unwilling

underlying motive for the dream, had per

was not recognizable. Her subconscious
wish, which she had never acknowledged
