INSINIH AND ITS PHASES
Oomniuioier Tilden Oires Boms RetnlU of
Hit Long Experience.
MENTAL DISEASE IS ON THE INCREASE
aT Caaaee for the Wrecking- of tb
II am a a Mind nad Many Ways
la Which the Condi
tion la Detected.
A young man detained at the county Jail
on an Insanity complaint recently demanded
and. of course, was granted a public trial.
Bucn proceeding Is somewhat unusual In
Douglas county, as ordinarily It Is pre
ferred by patients and their friends that the
fact of the former's detention and Investi
gation bo kept from the public, and there
was provoked by the hearing a general dis
cussion of Insanity and the Insane by those
bout the court bouse Informed of the
young man's case.
Among those so Informed was an ac
quaintance and friend of Dr. George Tilden,
for twenty-eight years Insanity commis
sioner of Douglas county and familiar with
a total of nearly 1,800 cases In this county.
Through the friend Dr. Tilden was drawn,
with considerable reluctance, Into the dis
cussion, and In answering questions pro
pounded to him by those less fully Informed
practically delivered a lecture that was not
devoid of interesting declarations and sta
tistical Information.
"It Is true," the doctor said In answer
to one of the queries, "that Insanity la In
creasing throughout the civilised world, and
that the extremes of poverty and wealth are
among Its fostering agenU, with the ex
citement of accumulating and of losing
money responsible for not a few cases.
But statistics show that the outlook Is less
gloomy than might be assumed, and there
hould be a modification of the prevalent
notion of the hopelessness of the affliction.
Of every 100 Insane persons, fifty die sooner
or later during the attack; twenty make
complete recovery; the other thirty make
Incomplete recovery, by which I mean that
between subsequent recurrent attacks there
may be Intervals of five, ten, fifteen and
even twenty years with only ten of the
thirty subjects dying during such attacks,
roatrolllna; the Dleease.
"Medical science has taught Its students
to detect mild cases early and to treat
them, often, successfully. When that Is
done It Is a virtual prevention of Insanity
and a matter for general congratulation.
Hospitals or asylums are much Improved
In method now, which further operates
against the spread of the affliction. Inded,
there now remains little about these Insti
tutions which I would criticise unless It be
the plan we have In this state of removing
the heads with every change of political
administration. That Is a great error. The
man chosen to take charge of such a place
should be the very ablest man available,
and when chosen he should be allowed to
remain there long, that In his later years
he may have the benefit of the observations
he made In his earlier ones.
"One reason for the large per cent of In
crease In the number of cases of Insanity,
remarked upon by those who read the cen
sus report. Is that these Institutions are
now receiving and reporting many cases
that used to be hidden In attics and garrets
by relatives who had a horror of the vory
word 'asylum,' and viewed the affliction as
family disgrace not to be disclosed. An
other reason for this increase I refer to Is
that doctors are able to reduce acute cases
to chronic, and ao save the life of the pa
tient. Still another reason is that the
definition' of Insanity has been broadened
so at to take In some of the feebleminded.
Aetna! Increase In Number.'
"Still,- there Is no denying that there Is
an actual Increase In the number of really
Insane and for this there are reasons other
than the excitement of our strenuous com
mercial existence. To begin with, there la
the matter of heredity. Some estimates of
the percent of those Insane by Inheritance
are a high as 75 per cent, but I am In.
cllned to believe that it is no more than
40 or CO per cent. Then as other reasons
there are the use of alcohol and the preva
lence of specific diseases both as Impor
tant as they are lamentable.
"Yet In this connection there are facts
which aurprlse Americans. The French,
whom we accuse of a freer indulgence In
alcohollo drinks are shown In the official
tables to have a less per cent of Insane
than have the people of the United States.
Among our 'people there are 170 Insane In
every 100,000 population. In France the
ratio Is but 124 In every 100.000. Sweden
reports 176 Insane In every 100,000 popula
tion; Norway, 186; Denmark, 138; England.
19; Scotland. 257; Ireland, S17; whereas
Hungary has but 81; Austria, 135; Italy,
198; Prussia, 87. Ireland and Hungary
represent the high and low extremes
among the civilized nations of the earth.
Bona American Peculiarities,
"In our nation there la, too, a great deal
more Insanity among the foreign-born than
among the natives perhaps twice as much.
Among the native-born there la less per
cent of Insanity charged against the col
ored than against the white population an
argument, perhaps, for the don't-worry
philosophy of the negro. As to the Indl-

vldual showing, women are 'more fpt than
men to develop insanity and eingln women
more than wivea. The divorced are more apt
to develop It than the single and the
widows more than the divorced Indeed,
widows are most apt of all, not excluding
the widowers. Single women In the city
are more subject to It than single women
In the country. Perfectly accurate per
cents cannot be given, however, as the
manner of the application to Insanity of
the science of statistics Is defective all
over the world.
"Insanity has been styled a child of
civilization, but that Is not exactly
Justifiable, for there has been Insanity
among savage and barbarous peoples. A
mad dog is afflicted with a certain kind of
Insanity; the saliva In his mouth doesn't
hurt him until the poison in It reaches
his brain. I&sanlty, which by the way. Is
not a disease, but a symptom of disease.
Is as old as the race. The bible gives us
a well authenticated rase of homicidal
mania In the history of the naked king
Saul, who, 1,000 years before Christ, at
tempted the assassination of David. And
the latter furnishes further proof of our
present theory that Insanity was then ex
istent and understood by having feigned
at it. Remember how he scratched the
gates and spat upon hi beard until King
Achtsh of Oath dismissed him with the
declaration that he was a fool.
"Five hundred years later Nebuchadnex
rar contributed the first recorded case of
chronic mania. He wandered In the fields
and ate herbs, permitting his nails and hair
to grow long. Before restored to reason
and his throne he had been seven years
insane a long time, but discounted In some
latter day cases. AJax, Hercules and Ulys
ses feigned, the poets tell us. Hamlet had
one variety of Insanity and feigned another
variety.
Degree of Insanity-
"Insanity does not always Indicate the im
pairment of all faculties. A part of the brain
may be healthy while another part Is un
healthy. And In this perhaps is found the
reason for the frequent apparent disagree
ment of lawyer and doctor in lawsuits In
volving the sanity of parties on trial. A
man may be legally sane and medically In
sane. The public's Idea of an insane man,
generally speaking, is a wild, violent, dan
gerous persons, or else a Jabbering Idiot.
The lawyer erects an arbitrary standard
designed to protect life and property and
based on the ability of the party Involved
to determine right from wrong. The doc
tor, conceding the propriety of protecting
life and property, reserves the right to dif
fer from the barrister to the extent of
malutaining that a man may be capable of
discerning between right and wrong and
yet have so diseased a brain that he is not
able has not the self-control to desist
from doing the evil he recognites. Thus
while the science of law has a standard of
perception as a basis upon which to work in
determining Insanity the science of medi
cine bases its conclusions on the healthy
or the diseased condition of the brain, and
that is why I say that a man may be le
gally sane and medically Insane.
Not Always An Excone.
"Some writers on mental diseases main
tain that when insanity Is established bv
medical evidence, It should absolve from all
criminal responsibility In all cases, but I
cannot subscribe to that doctrine. It might
be safe and Just In many cases, but in oth
ers it would defeat the administration of
Justice. In a given caBe, when a doctor tes
tifies to insanity It may be that his duties
have Just begun In that case, Instead of
ended. It may then become his duty to
assist the court and Jury In determining the
degree of responsibility, which may be
either entire or limited. After all. re
sponsibility Is not a medical question; It Is
a legal question. It might appropriately be
called the philosophical or metaphysical
question and not all physicians are meta
physicians. But Insanity Is a medical ques
tion and the physician, from the nature of
his duties, can give facts and explain them
and can give a Just and sound opinion to
courts and Juries who must finally decide
the matter."
"Well, how does a doctor determine the
diseases or the healthy condition of the
fcraln?" proposed one of Dr. Tllden's In
quisitors. "There are various methods." was the let
ter's reply, "depending on the nature of the
cases In hand, i Generally speaking, it Is
done by observing the symptoms disclosed
In the conversation, mannerisms and coun
tenance of the subject. When a case is
brought to the attention of our board I
first talk with the man's relatives, friends
and neighbors concerning him, paying par
ticular attention to any hereditary possi
bilities. Then I call on him. One visit mav
be enough or In it he may disclose or be
tray nothing and more are then reaulred.
Hon to Detect Insanity.
"Often I first Inquire of the patients how
they have been feeling physically. In an
swering questions they may put to me I
never tell them untruths as some advise.
This may be Justifiable In exceptional cases
but I aim to gain their confidence and de
ception may be readily detected by them'
and long remembered, for while Insanity
Impairs the memory nearly always. It some,
times appears really to Improve It.
"After that first Interview I am aot to
progress more rapidly. A long conversation

person, causing him to become fretful and
to wander In his speech, with the result
that a whole train of delusions may be sud
denly loosed, as though he had lost mental
control and given up his original intention
to conceal his hallucinations. But I do not
advise complete exhaustion. I may say. too.
that an Insane person, no matter how skill
ful at concealing his delusions, often can
not deny having them, if the question be
put to him pointedly and directly.
"The result of each Interview In difficult
cases, I set down in a record as soon as I
return to my office and when I come to
mako a decision I consider them all and
from them make up the report that is sent
to the hospital at Lincoln before the
patient. At the hospital thla report Is
perused by the superintendent and he de
termines if the patient ia to be admitted
there. It is within his power to refuse any
or all. The law gives the poor preference
over the rich at this public institution and
the acute over the chronic, but the super
intendent makes the decision as to who
may come and who not. I might add also
that the law expects that where families
are able to pay for the care and treatment
of a member at the hospital they are ex
pected to do so, but that there has never
been a collection mado from Douglas
county people by the state, though there
have been, I think, two or three lawsuits.
Oddltlea of the Law..
"A complaint of insanity may be sworn
to by anyone, but arrest is made only
when such complaint charges that the man
against whom it is made is dangerous to
be at large. If not so charged, the man
Is examined at his home and the commis
sioner recommends quiet, rest, change,
travel or whatever else he believes best,
with detention and treatment as a last
choice. The cost of transporting the sub
ject to the institution Is borne by the
county, but If he be paroled at the request
of relatives and then becomes violent
again the cost of transporting him a sec
ond time must be borne by the one petl-
A Campaign Genius
The Office Was Small,
but the Run Was Great.
Some unhonored phraae-maker, some
time and somewhere dropped this chunk of
strenuous wisdom: "Opportunity knocks
once at every man's door." Those who are
awake and seize it materially advance in
tho race, while the heedless aleep on and
gain nothing. But there are others who
are not only alert and awake, energetic and
aggressive. This clans do not wait for op
portunity to come. They go out to meet it
half way, or perhaps grapple with it in its
lair and shake it for a winning. The Ideal
leader of this class bears the unromantic
name of Vw Bhank, a native and a resident
of Indiana, a genius, a politician and Hoos
ler gentleman..
Last tall the nomination tor recorder of
his home county waa tendered Lew. He
met It more than half way. He went after
It, believing that a good thing was worth
hUitllng for. It was his opportunity and he
made the most of It. Then it was bis
genlua bloomed forth and sb" an agreeable
fragrance on the work of the campaign.
The first stroke of genius was to adver
tise for 10,000 girls "to kiss their sweet
hearts and ask them to vote tor Lew
Shank." The novelty of the announcement
In Itself was sufficient to furnish the can
didate with a large amount of advertising.
No sooner had the posters been distributed
than the name of Lew Shank was on every
one's tongue. Young men laughed and joked
on the subject to themselves, and hundreds
of young women, all over the town, made
the poster Incident and the kissing propo
sition It involved the topic of conversation
among their feminine friends. From a
merely humorous Incident the kissing sug
gestion ripened Into a reality. Girls In In
dianapolis were heard to hltper to each
other between suppressed giggles such sen
tences as, "Will you do 11!" "Yes, if you
will promise also?" "All right, wby not
form a club and get all the girls to make
their beaux pledge themselves to vote for
Mr. Shank!" "It's the very thing; and every
girl must kits her sweetheart according to
the request et ths poster."
Results show that 10.000 girls did respond
to the plea, for Mr. Shank won out with a
rousing majority and thus scored the most
remarkable election victory ever recorded.
Mr. Shank being a furniture dealer and
auctioneer, knows the value of printers'
Ink, so having decided what office he would
fill he bled him to the newspaper offices
and made arrangements to have himself an
nounced In every sheet in town, in big glar
ing lines, as a candidate for county re
corder. His fellow townsmen seeing this
on the first page of their dallies may have
thought that ended it, but no such good
luck. Did they read the locals there was
Lew Shank; did they turn to the society
news, there he waa again. If In desperation
they looked up advertisements they found
the lines interspersed by remarks such as
these:
"Wanted, 10,000 laboring men to support
Lew Shank for recorder."
"Don't forget your old friend. Lew
Shank," and so on, ad infinitum.
Meanwhile Mr. Shank was stirring up
things on the street. In his store he had
unpacked from Its casa a resplendent solid
oak sideboard, and on Its shining sides was
suspended a large cardboard with the seduc
tive announcement that this piece of furni
ture was to be given to the person guessing
the nearest to the number of votes received
by the successful candidate for recorder.
On all the moving vans used In deliver
ing and moving furniture large canvas signs
appeared bearing the legend, "Get On the
Band Wagon and Vote tor Lew 8hank."
Theatergoers found their programs plenti
fully sprinkled with the same dulcet name.
A cigar factory was subsidized and each
cigar waa deeply indented with the magic
eight letters. Many of these cigars were
given to the girls of the town to be won by
their male friends by well, in numerous
ways. If the man were fortunate enough to
receive a whole box of Havanas, and many
did, he could also refresh himself by gat
ing upon the Sherlock Holmes-like face of
Mr. Shank depleted on the box UX
Chewing gum, also, deliciously flavored
with chocolate, and in the neatest of wrap
pers, appropriately worded of course, was
scattered broadcast, and every school child
had the name of the future recorder lit
erally on the tip of hia tongue.
Nor was this all. Mr. Shank is an auc
tioneer and much sought after In this ca
pacity. Should he let such a chance slip?
Not he. At the psychological moment when
his audience was moved to much laughter
by his harangue and in an expansive and
opcn-to-convlctlon attitude, a hired by
stander was sure to observe in stentorian
tones that "Lew Shank Is a candidate for
recorder." Indeed, this fact was reiterated
so often that even the little dogs got to
know it and were much interested in the
outcome of the campaign. Especially was
this the case with a lit t Irs water spaniel
owned by a friend of the politician in the
town, who would strut about In the most
dignified manner if asked how Lew Shank
would feel after the election; but when the
feelings of his opponent were alluded to
would appear to expire in dreadful agony.
Business applied to politics was the
watchword of his campaign. In addition,
his big voice, hearty laugh and warm hand
shake were everywhere in evidence, and
bow could the Indianapolis people resist
when even their morning cake of sotip
greeted them cheerfully with "Oet up early
and vote for Lew Shank for recorder."
Whether to ascribe the victory to the ci
gar, the chewing gum. the little water
spaniel, the band wagons or the 10,000
kisses is a mooted, question in the Hooster
city. But it is more than probable that the
last method of booming himself was re
sponsible for Lew Shank's election, as his
popularity in Indianapolis among the
younger social set waa lde, and the very
boldness of his requett for 10,000 kisses
contained an element of spiclnen which ap
pealed to the hearts et his feminine ad
tnlMrs. .
tionlng for bis parole. Oddly enough, if a
patient escapes from an asylum and returns
to his home county, that county must bear
the expense of returning him to ' the
asylum, whereas if he goea anywhere else
the Institution authorities will send tor
hira at the expense of the state."
In the course of his conversation Dr. Til
den severely rebuked some features of
present educational methods, saying: "The
alienist, or writer on Insanity, might do
a very good work by ventilating the
danger of competitive examination lu
educational Institutions, where young per
sons with minds of unequal capacity and
strength are set at the same tasks and
encouraged so to strain themselves that
the weaker ones are overtaxed and develop
hysteria, chorea and other nervous
diseases that constitute a foundation for
mental derangement In the future."

is to destroy the germs, and the only hair
