INSANITY PLEA Michi|nn in n few days \viU join the ranks of states which haw made an enlightened revision of the statute on insanity pleas in criminal cases. Under the state's new law, effective late this month, notice must lie given before the opening of a criminal (Hal if insanity is to he the defense. Wlieiv*snch notice is given, the accused will go before an officinK insanity commission composed of physicians. The commission's findings may be presented at the trial by either defense or prosecution. If the*.jury in its turn decides from the testimony thai the defendant is insane and (herefore guiltless of deliberate crime, then the judge must send the defendant to a hospital for the inshne. The nHv Michigan statute should end the travesty which, unfortunately, is still possible in so many slates when "expWts" called by opposing lawyers give endless and directly opposite testimony about a prisoner's mental Condition. CHAPTER THIRTY-FIVE "LORENA, how scared are you? I mean are you afraid to lay oui here In hiding while I slip across there and see what I can learn?' "I am not afraid, Shot. But J want to go with you." "No, no! You don't understand Look—those Mexican rustlers have driven Phantom cows up the dry stream bed and then ,jut water into the dry oed somehow. It's plain as day. but I've got to Know how they did it. I think I can cut across at an angl here—since we are already on the high altitude—and come out on the upper reaches of the stream somewhere. See? I can learn Just what happens. I probably can see the cattle trail up there, too; where the stock came out of the stream bed." "But Shot, we started out together!" "My lordy, Lorena, you—" "My lordy, nothing. I am not a— a setting hen! If there's no danger for you, '.her. there's none for me. Besides that, I'm as curious as you are." They argued some more ana he couldn't convince- her. Then he told her, in some heat, that she was as hard-headed as a mule. She did not get angry; ground. she just stoo' her ; BEST SEASON OF THE YEAR The days—'thus far—have belied the fact. Rut the nights bear witness more plainly that in another day or so it will be fall, officially. Fall, to us, is the most beautiful season of the year. Already the stage is being set rapidly for the gorgeous riot of color which makes the autumns of this region the high spot in the year for the nature lovei-. It takes only a little imagination to call up in one's mind a picture of what the next six weeks will bring. It hasibeen a beautiful summ»r, one of the longest, most temperate of recent years. A pei-son has only to look around, for example, still to see green grass everywhere and leaves t that are only slightly turning. A few bold strokes one of these chilly nights, however. will make a world of difference. From then on things will happen fast. Changing seasons have a way of following a similar pattern. Almost imperceptible shifts at first, a slow paviirg of the way. In the. daily routine, they nearly go unnoticed. Then^pver-night it seems, nature adds a few bolder Sweeps and"we caJch up with a new season. So today we are on the threshold of fall—windy, sunny, wild, sjjmrrying leaves, fleecy days of mysterious calm. It is a season of weather excitement, and preparation for winter. R^ch day is an experience in itself, tied together by the thiif blue veil of fall days and nights. Fall infiy be only a preparation for winter but. as such, it is the belt sea.son of the year. | "If you start off without me, I ; shall follow." she said, demurely "I won't be left behind! I won't!" "Then come on." he growled at last, in resignation "You certainly are contrary. My gosh. I would sure hate to be your husband!' "Nobody asked you to be my husband, Mr. Shot Rogers! Besides. I would never marry a man. I intend never to marry. Men are to bossy. But I wouldn't act this wa- to my husband because I would love him. No, I mean yes I would, because I would want to be with him and share his—" "You better stop," he interrupted. "You are talking all mixec' up. You talk too much." "You scow' too much, so there!" "I don't" "You do! You are scowling now At me." "Oh. come on, let's get going." He forced a grin as he strapped on his pack. "It's twilight, but we could still be seen. And you'll get hungry, and tired, and mad, and wish you were home, and—" "I won't" "You will, toe You'll see, missy." He started off at a quiet but rather fast walk, screening himself behind rocks and shrubs as much as possible and heading in a direction which he esimated would brinp him to the headwaters of the river forks. He guessed it might be four or five miles, at least. He wished he had a horse. Two horses. He didn't say anything to her for more than half an hour, just peering back occasionally to see that she was near. It was almost dark by this time. When they halted for a brief rest, she spoke to him. "Shot, are you really angry with me? Or were you just pretending?" "Yeah," he said. "Yeah, what?" "I'm really mad. I ought to dust yore—I ought to have made you mind me." She giggled a little at him, hap- piiy. "I've changed my mind." she said. "I'll go back now, if you want me too." "Hunh?" "I will. Do you want me to go back now?" "You better come on, now you've started. You'd get lost." She laughed again, a girlish, comradely laugh Shot pretended to remain stern, but he couldn't entirely conceal his feelings. The tone of his voice, hir slightest mannerisms, spoke more than ,iis words to her. She started humming a little, very low. "Cut out ah that noise.' he growled. "Goodness!" "Yeah, you'll get us killed." Truth lurked in his statement, and he knew it He felt that she realized their danger, too. an-J he wondered why she appeared so unconcerned about it, so ocidly happy. Well, women are strange animals; lie reckoned other men had found that out. too. He liked having her near him. She was grand, really. She wa. beautiful, and dainty, and spunky as a year-old mare. Bui he didn't understand her much. Their trek was a Iiard one, made larder by the fact of darkness and the necessity of grave caution. Shot worried lest Lorena's feet and ankles would tire. He even thought of trying to carry her, but realized at once that such an idea was ridiculous. He glanced back at her often; she was moving as smooth~.y as he. His hunch had been correct By watching known landmarks, especially distant and dominating Crown mountain, ne was able to orient himself even in the dark, and he knew when he had come to the 'dry" stream bed. He .vhispered cautiously to Lorena there. "There's been water in it—the •sand's wet vpt—hut thprp's nr> wa- ter now. Come on, let'a slip upstream a ways. You ought to be home in bed." "Hush," she commanded. They walked less than a quarter mile further when they heard water running. Alert to every sight and sound now. Shot moved slowly, with the girl at his heels. They saw no other living thing, and they remained in the "dry" stream bed which had become quite narrow between rock walls. The land around them was extremely rough, and walking was easier In the damp sand than elsewhere. .They noted that the stream bed curved rapidly, too. In a few minutes the sound of water had grown stronger, and presently Shot whispered: "ThJs dry bed has swung over right near one of the branches that's fed with springs. You see?" Lorena nodded. "Look up there, too, Lorena. There's a huge rock, bigger than a courthouse, by George! It breaks this dry gully right off. In fact, that's doubtless why this one is dry; the rock diverts most of the drainage water and all the spring water into the other two channels. Fifty feet from them, though, they came onto a cut-off—a cross channel from the watered stream bed to the dry one. This cross channel had been dug partly by artificial means, a crude canal about five feet deep anc six or eight wide. Shot stooped to finger the dir' there. "It's wet!" he whispered in dls- jdays in Scottville and later, as young married friends in troit. the year and the routine work of preparation for the year. The second Jesson will be "The Making of Bedspreads." Scottville Locals Dr. and Mrs. Ivan L. Hunt and son, John, left this morning, Mrs. Women's Study Club to Meet on Monday Hunt and son to go to Ann Ar- De- b° r and Detroit and Dr. Hunt to Grand Rapids where he will attend clinics today and Thursday. John Hunt enters the University of Michigan this week and Mrs. Hunt will spend a few days with her sister, planning to return to Scottville Sunday. The Misses Frances, Harding channel was only 50 covery. The CPOSS or 60 yaids in length. And at the other end of it Shot and Lorena found the answer to their big question, that which had disturbed the Phantom ranch now for weeks. The man and the girl looked at it carefully, crawling around It, Inspecting it while keeping a sharp lookout, too. "It's as slick as a whistle!" Shot admitted, in genuine awe. "A gate, made of heavy rough planks, Lorena: 'xx)k. the wet channel U narrow as heck here. They could drop this gate in it to make a temporary 'lam. turning the water into the cross channel and uown the dry stream. Then a couple of men with lariat ropes on horses could lift the gate again, and let the water go on down its natural course. Escobar's men have been doinp this all along! Stealing Phantom cattle and then washing out the trail!" fTn R* The first meeting of the Scotti ville Women's Study club will be held Monday, Aug. 25, at the home of Mrs. Earl Gordon on North Main street. This will be a potluck 1 o'clock luncheon with Mrs. Harriett j Meads and Mrs. Earl Gordon in charge. I Because of a great deal of im- i portant business, every member is urged to attend the meeting.

By LOGAN-CLENDENING, M. D. IN A REPOKT on Medical Progress in the New England Medical Journal, Professor Ayer, of Harvard, picks 'the following as the most important advances in diseases of the nervous system. (1) The record of brain waves. It ia possible now by delicate electrical machinery to detlct and record differences in' electrical potential as the brain thinks, and these brain waves are coming to have some sig- Dr, Clendening will answer questions ; pf general interest only, and^then only through his column. nificance in studying human brain disorders. have long utilized electrical wayea through the heart, and now tht even more delicate electrical disturbances of the brain can be measured. There are two kinds of waves that Appear, one being the alpha waves, of ten second" intervals, that are a constant product of the brain which May be influenced by many slight cbangt*—chejnical, thermal, physical, physiological. For instance, they are slightly different when a person is lying down Khan when he is stand- lag up. i Delta Waves The other brain waves are called delta waves; [hey are the product of a dtorderedjbrain cortex. In epilepsy » disoriered rate of production of W»v0f is recognized. There if the (njectiqp of spikes in the rec- ;prd, and in a Jpubtful case these are ; rally regarded as conclusive the dlaglostic standpoint.

Within modern times the drug, luminal, has largely replaced .he use of bromides in epilepsy. Dilantin belongs to the same group. The barbiturates have a hypnotic quality and induce sleep. Dilantin s poor in its sleep-producing quali- ies, but it controls convulsions very effectively. Controlled Convulsions Three hundred and thirty patients ivith epilepsy have been treated with this medicine. In 79 per cent it con- rolled convulsions better than any other form of treatment. The pa- ients tolerated the drug very well and felt better with it than on any other form of treatment. (3) The treatment of vertigo due to nerve disease — Meniere's disease — augmented by the use of a diet ow in salt and high in ammonium chloride. The theory is that in tfeniere's disease there is a disor- lered sodium nutrition. However, .his finding has been disputed and as against it a series of patients did well when the salt in the diet was let alone but potassium chloride given. As time goes on, however, more evidence accumulates that the best way of treating Meniere's disease is ay surgery. The operation as now performed does not cause deafness as formerly. (4) Neuritis. It used to be thought that there were two forms of neuritis, one caused by poisons taken in through the mouth, such as lead, alcohol, arsenic, etc., and the second caused by poisons secreted in the body in diabetes, infections, etc. Now it |s believed that they are all due to vitamin B deficiency. As soon as more than one-third of the mobile B stock of the liver is exhausted, nervous symptoms appear.
