WE RECENTLY havo been hcar- ijng a great deal about a. form of (treatment of certain forma of mental disease by which the mind la eo disturbed that It may possibly b« shocked Into g e t t i n g b a c k o n t h e tracks The m e n t a l disturbances In w h i c h t h i s method has been most successful arc those called the "split personalities" or " H c Ji 1 z ophcn- Ics"., They are s o m e t i m e s called also "dc ate In more or less norm 1 union. Moro Ktmurkablo Than Insulin Probably even more remarkable than Insulin, h8i been the use of a drug called ' mctrnzol". This makes' %ery profound changes In the body and usually results In a convulsion If ghcn In sufficient dosage It Is used In dementia praccox because, according to alienists, epilepsy and dementia praccox are abtolutcly antagonistic Mctrazol upsets all the chemistry of the body and produces a convulsion.

Both of these treatments ar« \cry dangerous, but the condition of tho patient is usually so dcspcr- ato that death would be more welcome than a continuation of the deranged state, and most people will take the risk In order to tako tho chance of a good result. I ha\e seen one or two Instances of tho operation of these methods \\hlch aro quite remarkable, and reports from many sources indicate that as much as CO per cent of good results can possibly be expected.
