For a mind which betrays itself in a
countenance such as this, all the possi

life and happiness, can lx1 summed up in
one terriblo word fe:ir. Henceforth
this was all that tho infinite world of
thorurht ai'd all tho endless pleasure of
being could moan to tliLs poor creature.
In tho midst of the Sunshine, tho free
nir, tho son.ar of the birds, tho whisper
of lovers, tho voices of friendship, sho
must continue to live on at: unconscious
of them all a; if her life had been nar
rowed down to the darkest dungeon of
To deprive a face that beams with
intelligence and beauty of tho ouo light
that makes it priceless, to blot out in
the twinkling of an eyo that unmeasured
tmiverso that exists in tho brain of an
individual and leave in its place a soli
tiuy candlo like this glimmering in tho
night what a measureless crime! And
such a crime has been committed. Does
it add anything to tho depth of tho in
famy or to the burden of tho guilt that
tho poor victim was but 10 and had
been strnek down In tho fullness of
health imd strength?
The patient sat on tho edgo of tho bed
from which sho had lately arisen in an
nlcovo cltamber opening into a large
apartment, f urnished like a sitting room.
Two grave and interested physicians,
one gray haired and advanced In years,
tho other of middle ago, were watching
her. There was no evidence that either
of thoso men comprehended anything of
tho unutterable pathos" of the situation.
Their problem was purely a physiolog
ical one. Tho moral aspects of tho case
concerned thorn only where they aided
a diagnosis. The ceaseless, uneasy mo
tion of the poor girl's hands, clasping
and enclasping themselves in her lap,
the pathetic cry, without an attempt at
articulation, that sho uttered from timo
to time, these were tho matters that in
"I have observed a very curious
thing," the elder physician was saying.
"It is possible, of course, that I may bo
mistaken, but if I am not then this girl
possesses a curious power in a remark
able degree. "
Tho younger man repeated tho phrase
with no little wonder, "A curious pow
er?" "Yes, a very curious power, I should
say, of what, for want of a better term,
I will call optical retention. You know
what I mean?' '
"I moan tho faculty of retaining a
scene in tho mind after tho eyes are
closed or tho sceno removed Wo all
havo it In varying degrees. Yon men
tion tho writing table at my office, and
immediately an image, tolerably dis
tinct, of the size, shape and general ap
pearanco of tho tablo rises beforo my
mental vision. I mean simply, if this
girl wcro familiar with the looks of that
table and sho could bo made to under
stand what I am talking about, sho
would see tho object in question so vivid
ly that it would bo to her almost tho
reality pe rhaps, I might say, practical
ly tho reality. "
Tho younger physician regarded tho
speaker in silent wonder.
"You don't take my meaning?"
"Oh, perfectly! My term for it is vis
ualization. What puzzles me is that you
should see any evidences of it here
"What, has she done to show it?"
"Not any ono thing so much as every
thing. I generalize it from a caref ul Ob
servation of her movements. "
"Do yon call it a symptom?"
"No that is, I don't know. It may
bo abnormal, or it may bo natural to
her In a state of health) I havo studied
several case One, a very young child
who could find his way unerringly abont
a familiar place blindfolded. His family
called it instinct, but it was simply a
phenomenal power of retaining the pic
ture of tho room in his mind, combined
.with an accurate Idea of distance. Un
seen by him, I disarranged the f urnitnro,
and he lost his head at once. "
"Yes, but I didn't supposo an idiot
could possess such a faculty. "
"Nor I. But is this an idiot?"
"Hum ha1 ' The younger physician
was altogether too cautious to commit
himself, but he fixed upon tho palo faco
of the patient a look of doubt and un
certainly that was plain enough of it
self. Ho shrank as much as did his gray
haired colleague from tho humiliating
confession, "I don't understand thocaso
Tho elder physician was certainly in
no haste to pronounce a verdict. Called
for the pnrposo of aiding his younger
associate to arrivo at a definite conclu
lion as to the nature of tho mysterious
malady under which tho patient suf
fered, ho had as yet refrained from ex
pressing an opinion, and now ho poko
in tho most guarded and cautious man
ner: "It Rocms to mo, Lamar, that tho
problem in this oaso narrows itself down
to a question as to whether tho patient's
present widition Is duo to tho blow sho
is known to havo received npon tho head
or to tho purely mental results of tho
terror caused lv the accident "
"bandy," said tho younger man,
"yon do not wish mo to understand that
you beliovo it even possiblo that such a
condition should bo tho result of simplo
terror orpnro mental action of any kind.
It seems almost certain to mo that there
was somo structural or functional disor
der prior to tho accident. "
"Very possibly. I did not say to tho
contrary. Somo of her symptoms almost
indicate a pressuro on tho brain, but a
long experiouco in an accident hospital
has mado mo wary of jumping to a con
clusion when the symptoms aro sovaguo
aad unprononncod. I havo known snch
widely different and unexpected montal
states to result from the fright incident
to a loss of consciousness, under a pres
sure of excitement, that I am almost
ready to attribute any abnormal mental
state to tho shock or the terror, pure and
simple. Last ye;ir wo had a man who
had bticn thrown from a Carriage while
his horses were running away. The man
completely recovered, but he always per
sisted in a denial that he had ever gone
out to ride. ?ho accident robbed him of
his memory, not oldy of the time after
ho fainted, but of tho timo preceding
that event by some hours. Ho never lias
been and undoubtedly never will be able
to recall that time. Three or four years
ago I was called to attend a lunatic who
had been troubled with a suicidal mania.
Be had at last succeeded in eluding the
vigilance of his keepers and had hung
himself. We restored him, anj he has
been the sanestof sane men since. I have
Been a person absolutely an idiot frrmi
fright. You havo doubtless yourself
noted insanity or mania from that cause.
In view of these facts I say it is Well to
think twice before dismissing that hy
pothesis In a case like this."
Tho younger man listened attentively,
but he did not seem convinced
"Doubtless terror is a powerful fac
tor sometimes," he said, "but never
theless I do not see how it can be all in
this ease. The patient is not exactly an
idiot. I am very suro that in her way
The elder physician mado no reply,
but he laughed quietly.
"I do not mean that sho can follow a
conscious train of thought, but that
there is an unconscious undercurrent, so
to speak, which never rises iuto con
sciousness. It is thi' upper surfuee of tho
mind only that exhibits itself in intelli
gence, and in my opiuiou thero is some
thing moro than reflex action in the
great undercurrent that throws up the
little waves, tho tops of which only wo
call rO&SOQ. This mind is not dead, even
though it nppears to bo."
The elder physician looked both puz
zled and mnnseiL
"I am afraid, Lamar," ho said, "yon
read too much Herbert Spencer and are
inclined to ignore us plain fellows."
The younger man shrugged his shoul
ders at this mild sarcasm, and he an
swered without tho least show of sensi
"At any rate, yon would not object to
trying an experiment with me?"
"Very well. Let us conceal ourselves.
I believe that our presence irritate her. "
The younger man arose from the chair
in which ho had been silting and went
into the larger room The gray haired
physician followed him. They retired
into the farthest corner and concealed
themselves from the patient's view be
hind a curtained bed, where, by slightly
disarranging tho drapery, they could
easily watch her. Either becauso their

After they had disappeared from tho
range of her vision tho girl lot for a
long timo without any apparent change,
save that in lieu of wanning the faces
of the physicians her cjvs looked with
tho same dreadful fear into tho fire, in
tho open grata Ove r and over again,
with a persistent monotony that of it
self was enough to make the sympathet
ic observer inndder, this erobodiment
in motion of the unnatural ana Unvary
ing Condition Of the shattered mind, this
alternate clasping and unclasping of tho
hands, went on. The white palms e.uao
together, tho fihgen intertwined, tho
palms moved BlOwly across each other,
the fingers lost their hold and wandered
nervously, and then the dreary round
began again, and so on, ceaselessly and
"U she never still?" tho elder physi
' 'Never wholly so. Nervous motion of
somo sort is necessary. Nothing but ac
tual interference from without can stop
it, even for an insUmt. "
It happened then that an external in
terference unexpectedly occurred to il
lustrate tho practitioner's statement A
oat which had been curled up by tho
firesido, crossed tho floor and sprang
into tho girl's lap. With a repetition of
tho peculiar cry and a sudden intensifica
tion of tho dominant expression iu her
faco, tao patient started to her feet Tho
cat jumped down and ran away. Tho
girl gave no heed to his departure. Her
gazo was fixed immovably on the spot
whoro she hud seen him, and sho contin
ued uninterruptedly for several minutes
to move her hands as if driving back
somo palpablo object which persisted in
remaining iu her lap
"Sho sees tho cat still!" wliispcred
tho older physician. "Just as I thought
Tho impression produced on tho retina
by an Omoot that startles her is too vivid
to leavo hor oven after its departure
This is a more rcmarkablo retontiou than
I had deemed possible. But thero is no
evidence that sho thinks at all "
"Not as we think. No."
(Gradually the repulsing motion of cno
hands gavo place to tho old nervous
clasping and unclasping. The time camo
when tho poor creature seemed to forget
tho special terror caused by tho cat in
tho general dread with which all things
seemed to inspire her. But she still con
tinued to stand.
"Tliink!" murmured tho elder physi
cian. "Vthy, sho doesn't oven know
enough to sit down when sliu is tired. "
In truth, at that moment the girl be
gan to sway violently, and had not tho
foremost physician gono promptly to her
assistance sho would havo fallen.
"Her limbs aro too weak to stand so
long," said the younger man. "But
don't put her to bed yet I want to try
an experiment "
"Of what nature?"
"Simply to see what effect music will
have I havo known downright idiots,
who responded to scarce another provo
cation than the sight of food, to havo
their interest visibly aroused by tho
sound of a musical instrument. Miss
Maxey will favor us with a few selec
tions. I'll speak to her. "
He rapped at the door of an adjoining
chamber and exchanged a few words
with the person who responded. In a
few minutes a pretty young lady with
black eyebrows ami a damask color in
her cheeks hall taken her seat at tho
piano. The two physicians had retired
to their former position behind the bed
curtains, and the patient, as before, sat
on the edge' of her bed.
"What shall I play?" tho young lady
"Something loud and energetic."
There was a rustling of leaves, and
then tho drastic opening chords of a
Liszt rhaspody made the vases shiver on
tin' mantel. The sounds startled the pa
tient as a blow might havo done. Tho
dark eyes seemed to glow darker, tho
pale lips quivered moro perceptibly with
tho uttenuico of that plaintive cry, tho
pitiful all that was left to her of voice
and speech But she seemed to realize
tho origin of her fright. Her glance
went immediately in the direction of
the piano and remained there, fasci
nated, as if she momentarily expected an
unknown horror to rise up out of tho
cheerful red cover which adorned tho
case of the instrument Never for an in
stant was the forlorn monotony of the
moving hands interrupted. Nevertheless
tho younger physician seemed satisfied.
"We've got her attention. Now let us
change our humor. No more of that
kind, please, Miss Maxey. Something
quieter and moro soothing."
Miss Maxey chose a volume of Bee
thoven and beg in a favorite sonata. Tho
clasping hands still moved; tho dark
eyes still watched for the coming of the
unknown horror, but there was a change
in the indescribable details that went to
make up the dominant expression of tho
patient's face slight, gradual, scarcely
perceptible except to practiced eyes ex
pecting it but still a change
The younger man whispered energet
ically, "She's listening!"
Slowly, so slowly that it seemed an
a to those who hoped to see the end,
t! tinging fingers forgot to separate
themselves and take up new positions;
the h retoforo incessant motion of the
nervous hands became less and less;
ceased altogether; the palms rested
against each other, quite still.
The younger physician's growing ex
citement could restrain itself no longer.
"See!" he cried. "She sits quite mo
tionless! It is tho first time in days. And
there is another means which we have
not yet tried. Won't you sing to us,
Miss .Maxey? Ping us tho most tender
and pathetic thing you know."
The sound of the' piano stopped abrupt
ly. But the patient did not change her
attitude. In all tile many minutes, while
Mi.--s Maxey was searching for tho song,
she sat, seemingly intbiftlled, as if sho
listened BtilL The men of science felt
thi mselves in the presence of something
of which their learning told them noth
ing. Qradually, as the music went on,
the had inclined her head a little to ono
side in the poise of a listener, Soshestill
remained, now that the instrument was
mute. It was hardly the postnro of ex
pectancy. No, it : Seined more as though tho fee
ble responses of ihe mysterious faculty
that could rise up in a mind quite blank
at the sound of a tender melody had not
ceased to vibrate, as if the mournful ca
di noes were still echoing through the
vacant ohambi rs whence thought had
flown. Thero was fear in the dark eyes
still, but it DO longer seemed the mm
tuid substance of her life. In the very
midst of her abstraction a sound escaped
her lips that caused the listeners to start
"That was a sigh!" the younger man
"Ah," murmured his colleague, "so
I thought. There may be something in
your medicine after all."
Miss Maxey had now made her selec
tion. It wtu Schubert's wonderful "Avo
Maria, " a song that has more depth and
power oi tenderness in it than the soul
which feels it can express. Miss Maxey
had a sweot voice, and sho sang as
though the musiO had a meaning.
Suddenly both physicians uttered a
cry and sprang forward.
With a changing faco and trembling
limbs and reac hing outward with her
hands, like one groping in the dark, the
patient had arisen, had essayed even to
walk The attempt was far beyond her
strength. She faltered, swayed, uttered
the plaintive cry and fell liko lead into
the arms of ono of tho men. Sho had
"What a very curious case!" thought
the gray haired physician as he took his
departure. "It is unlike anything in my
All the way through the city streets
which led to tho hospital ho walked
with his head bent down anM his brow
contracted. Ho was dissatisfied and un
decided Ho had taken leavo of tho younger
man at tho door. The practitioner still
lingered to advise Miss Maxey.
"It will not do to repeat our experi
ment of this afternoon too soon again.
It would bo running too great a risk It
might result in good, but it would bo
something more likely to result in harm.
Tho medicine is strong, but I havo not

advice And you havo tho will of a de
termined woman to back yon, but thero
is something more potent oven than this,
and it may not bo possible, with tho best
of care, to do your bidding."
The young doctor turned from tho bed
side to a contemplation of tho serious
faco beside him It was natural that his
mind should wandor from tho sick girl
to Other afuiirs.
"I have not Been your brother todav,
Miss Maxey. Whero is ho?"
Miss Maxey informed him.

circumstances, but when backed by
