FRIDAY, MARCH 1.5, 191S: HONORING THE KING OF A WAR-RAVAGED COUNTRY ^_Kujg Albert of Belgium and General Petain of the French forces review the officers in command Franco-Belgian forces, who arc battling the .Hun at the JlortherB-eJtrennty of the western line. of the WHEN THE mm FAILS MAN WHO S U F F E R E D CALL3 : ATTENTION TO W R O N G METHODS. -WAR PENS" HIGHLY VALUED| Prevailing,. Attitudt Toward Insanity Ridiculous, If Not.Disgusting,'He Declare*--Mental Disorders Should -B» Looked To. \ "In erery line of mental research ] it is admitted that prevention is more | Important .than, 'cure---with, the escep- f tion of mental dtaeaaes," says Clifford; .Whittingham Beers, who created -a -I sensation a few years ago.when, un-' der the tlUe.A-.Mind. That Found It-' self, he published a record of bis years | of insanity and of his awakening from , mental death. . "Our scientific · atti-: tude toward diseases of the mind is truly amazing- We consider them as; something .unavoidable. "We watch ; stupidly -the disease. running its' course from' a "Slight disturbance of mental processes until the'first violent manifestations 'o: insanity . "If a man presents the slightest ·ymptoms of pneumonia or even ! measles he receives immediate treatment of some. kind. ' Oa the other'. hand, a patient who is suffering from: disease of the mind, the most threat-; ening calamity of life, must be so far advanced in the disease and so dis- \ ordered hi action or in speech as to' satisfy a lay tribunal of the necessity. ot justification of the forcible depriva-. tlon. of his liberty, must be told that lie'is 'insane,' must-be 'adjudged In-: ·ana* and 'committed' by a court to an, Institution for the inrane before ho can receive the treatment best adapt-; ed to the restoration ot his health. - j "The public should be convinced. that-insanity is a disease like any! other disease; people must be taught i to seek intelligent advice promptly : ·whenever something''seems to be the I matter -with, their ·nerves,' instead o f : concealing their fears tor mere shame.; "Had I, for Instance, at.the age of! eighteen, when I" began to worry, myself "Into a state of depression; had, access to advice and i:iformation, and had I, as a result of an established | and widespread Interest in -mental j hygiene^ sought such advice as a matter of course, as persons threatened with, tuberculosis now seek the help I and advice they need, I am confident' that I should not have suffered tfce ( affliction, of mental disorder. Though: I took medicine for *n«:rves,' I did not! .find the remedy I needed, which was i a -verbal corrective for thought and j -fears'which were to prove my tem-| porary undoing. j "It may take some time before a j sick man is no more ashamed of call*! ing on a-pbyslclan for incipient inaan- j Ity than for a cold hi his head, but ] let us hope that time will arrive even-! tually. -A. campaign^of .education is ] sorely needed to dispel--tho supersti-, tlons still prevalent - in - "the public ( mind as to.the:cause of insanity." j Those U»ed In Affixing Signatures to PCMKW Treat let Command a Big Frlc» From Collectors. The pens with which peace treaties i are iigned invariably fetch high; prices, .if they happen to find their; way. iatoJ-'the market, and there are; many people who would be willing to draw a check for $1,000 or more for · the'pen which will be used to sign the ! treaty of peace between the Balkan ' states aid Turkey. -. . ' It is Interesting to loiow that when j it became public property that peace j had been proclaimed between Russia' and Japan pen manufacturers in all! parts of the world pent supplies o f : their pens to those engaged in draw-, Ing up the treaty, hoping that the doc*. ument would be .completed by the ; agency of their "wares. In order to i avoid any unfair discrimination b- tween Um penmakers it was eventually decided to use quill pens for the signing of the treaty. _ It was a quill pen that was used by tho Spanish commissioners when they | put their signatures to the treaty o f ; peace drawn up after hostilities had J ceased between this country and j Spain. This particular pen, by tho way, sold for |125 some time afterward. The pen used by the' plenipotentiaries in signing the memorable treaty of Paris fell into tho hands of the Empress- Eugenic. Apart from its historical Interest." this pen is of considerable value, for it is mounted in solid gold and encrusted with, diamonds. The English home secretary occasionally recnives an application from '· a relic huntor for the pen with which | be hag signed the actual order of a reprieve. When Viscount Llandaff was home secretary, during the reign of the late Queen Victoria, he received several hundred such applications. Queen Victoria always retained possession of the pens that were used to set aside death sentences. One of these pens which was studded with Jewels and worth several pounds, was presented by her majesty to Mine. Albani, the vocalist. Slme.Patti received a "reprieve pen" from ex-Queen Isabella .of Spain, and for many yeara the diva carried it with her wherever §he went. Pens which have been used by famous authors often fetch high prices when put up for sale by auction. Charles Dickens used a quill pen to write part of "Hard Times," "Little Dorritt" . and. "Bleak House" at tho Villa Les MonUneaux. and this was sold some time ago for $17.50. Itary age, the youth ot Moresnet have tho choice of serving either Belgium or Germany. Astronomical Discoveries, The particular universe of stars In which we dwell Is half again as large j In Bcalo as the world has been sup-: posing. Our own sun Is still youth* | ful, and keeps traveling northwardly; .through space at tbe- comparatively j leisurely pace of twelve miles per; second, or only two-thirds th average j speed of stars of its own class. The j North trtar is not really a single star,] but triple, constating of three suns! revolving about a common center, j These are some of the rocent dlscov*' eries of the Lick observatory, the i famous graduate astronomical depart; ment of the University of California.; People who learned their astronomy j twenty years ago. or five years ago,! will havo to change many of their j Ideas of the nnfvcrso in the light of the Lick observatory's nowly achl*v«wj knowledge as to how the heavenly! bodies are born and live and die. No-! where in the world is so much being' done to alter and expand man's knowl-| edge of the stellar universe as on Mount Hamilton, under tho direction; of Dr. WT W. Campbell, the famous dl-! rector of the Lick observatory. About Bagp!p«. The Bulgarian delegates U'onld have, been interested if they had heard bo- [ fore leaving that the Prince of Wales I was learning the bagpipes. For the! pipes are the Bulgarian national 1a-| stniment, as Sir Charles Eliot sbov.'aj by a striking illustration. Until late-i ly. at any rate, the servants when waited at the porte on the grand : vizier were mutes, though not. as i n j former times, persons specially muti-, lated, hut children born deaf a n d j dumb. They used a language of signs, with a special gesture to describe the! representative of each nation. To In-f dlcte the Bulgarian agent they imitated a man playing on. the bagpipes. It was not the Bulgarianes who invent ed the pipes, however. They ar« among- the oldest ot musical instru-. mentB. An ancient gem shows Apollo j with them, and two instruments In th»| Boofc-of Daniel were almost certainly j bagpipes,--London Chronicle. i 71MMERMAN WILD Furniture « FURNITURE ' » RUGS STOVES Crawford Company "The Big Store Near The Bridge.
