ticn boards of the various States' capa-
stitution might best be erected at
New Haven and brought underj the
control of Yale university. With such
a hospital at its command the Yale
Medical school could establish a
cour.se in psychiatry, and, if the mat
ter be handled with characteristic
Yale spirit, Yale might easily make a
world-wide reputation for herself in
this at-present neglected branch of
learning. . ' '
With a modern Psychopathic hos
pital at Yale, and a modemly equip
ped Stat hospital at Middletovvn, not
forgetting our new hospital at Nor
wich, Connecticut would be In a fair
way to become a model State, at least
with reference to the study of insani
ty and the care of the insane. With
out a rnodel ! sanatorium, however,
where curable cases could be taken
care of during convalescence, after
their discharge from the Yale Psycho
pathic hospital, " Connecticut could
never become a compelling model for
other States. Fortunately it will not
be difficult to secure a sanatorium of
the desired type. It Is an open
secret that , the Hartford ftetreat,

any one suppose that the results of a
physical valuation will be accepted as
an exact basis for rate regulation?
We. think these are questions that
ought to be asked. This "physical val
uation" notion was one of the notions
which sprung up at the time when the
railroads were the target for almost
everybody who was shooting. It never
had much to recommend It. and it may

can be in it. Just about as much, per
haps, as there would be in the stock

honor save In his own country has
been convincingly refuted. The quick
appreciation of the merita of "A Mind
That Found Itself," written by Clif
ford Whittlngham Beers, a native of
New Haven, would Indicate that the
people of this city are surprisingly In
telligent, or that the book Itself Is, in
deed, eo rernarkable as to promptly
Impress a less Hstute community.
In what might be termed a muck
rake age it is not only Unusual but re
freshing to find an Investigator pos
sessed of the constructive as well as
the critical and condemnatory facul
ty. Mr. Beers In his book might have
attacked existing Institutions and
wantonly antagonized the very men
whose co-operation must be obtained
If the so-called abuses and deficiencies
In treatment th"e so frankly discusses
are to be corrected. Instead, though
he endured needless hardship,, while
confined ' as a meptal ' Incompetent,
Mr. Beers presents his revelations In
an unrevengeful spirit. The author's
fairness and rare Insight Into the mys
teries of one of life's most baffling
phases lift his book out of the cate
gory of the commonplace and make It
noteworthy; How far reaching In ef
fect the Impending campaign of edu
cation and reform will prove Is Im
possible of estimation to-day, but, In
our opinion, it will finally take rank
as one of the notable achievements of
the present century. . '
We have known the author of "A
Mind That Found Itself" since he was
a boy. It was therefore not easy,
when we first heard of his project, to
believe that he could successfully car
ry out the somewhat staggering plan.
He was, '.n fact, a prophet without
much honor at home. But with ad
mirable persistence and n Intelli
gence which seems to have been in
stinctive, so unerring was It In the
midst of Insuperable difficulties, Mr.
Beers swept aside what might, to an
other, have been discouraging crit
icism and pushed on toward the goal
which so many now see as plainly as
he saw It five years ago. That a
tenacity of purpose Is characteristic
of yie man Is abundantly proved by
his autobiography, and that Mr. Beers
will accomplish the as yet unfulfilled
part of his program seems assured.
It has been our privilege, to come
Into possession of the vital details of
the campaign planned for the bet
terment of the mental health of the
nation, which plan Includes, of course,
the protection of tha Interests of the
hapless thousands confined to-day In
all Institutions for the Insane. Prior
to the Inaugurating of the national
, movement, however, will come the
founding of the Connecticut Society
for Mental Hygiene, the first of the
many State societies which will be
date cottage-plan, In the country.
This move could be made within a
year If some public spirited person
of wealth would take over the prop
erty now owned by this corporation
and give It cash for its real estate.
Possessed, as the Hartford Retreat Is,
of an endowment and real estate
amounting In value to more than
half a million dollars, a sanatorium,
of the finest type could be estnbllshed.
Not only would such an Institution
complete the chain of model Institu
tions which Connecticut seems des
tined to have, It would, being an en
dowed Institution not run for profit
set a philanthropic pace whlrh
would correct the worst of the abuses
now common In private run-for-galn
Institutions of the type so vividly de
scribed in Mr. Beers' book.
Societies for Mental Hygiene should
be organized In every State. They are
needed. For generations, the mental
health of the people has been looked
after, if at all, by sub-committees of
organizations founded for other pur
poses. Until there is a national so
ciety, as It were, founded for the sole
purpose of Improving and protecting
the mental health of the whole peo
ple, distressing conditions will . con
tinue to obtain. It therefore behoove
every rlght-thlnklng person 'In each
State to asslr.t. In ono way or another,
their respective State Societies for
Mental Hygiene when they shall take
shape. May the people of Connecti
cut give generous support to the pro
jected State society. In doing so they
will render distinguished service to
the nation Indeed, to all mankind.

Gloucester, Massachusetts, is one of
the cities which has long been tired
tired of Its poor, complicated and cost
ly government. So it Is apparently get
ting ready for a new deal and a new
ideal. The city council has voted to
adopt the recommendation of a cltleens'
committee for a new charter, provid
ing for government by a mayor and
four councilmen, to be chosen , irre
spective of ward lines. In addition to
these there are to be a superintendent
of schools and a chief of the fire de
partment, also to be chosen by the
people. , The treasurer and auditor
would be elected by the council. This
w6uld provide for a total of only sev
en names on the ballot at the election.
This Is a curious programme. The
choosing of a superintendent of schools
by the people might be "democratic"
enough, but It is thought in many
places that the less the schools get In
to politics the better. Perhsps If OloU
cester gets a new government she will
find that the trouble with her is her
self. Forms of government don't make
good government, though they sopie
tlmes make It pcsflMe.
to the farms, fail to consider that
scores of them know so little about
farm work that they would be scarcely
worth hiring. The cities of this country
have been rearing a class of workmen
who are not adapted for the farm, and
who know It perfectly well. It Is unfor
tunate, no doubt, tiiat cily life unfiis
most men for agricultural pursuits.
Nevertheless so it is and that is a
very considerable reason why clerks
and mechanics do not rush to take the
places which the farmers offer.

The Pennsylvania, railroad has an

equipment will consist of cars of all

from the mahogany window sash and
