Unfortunately  the  leaders failed to recognize the fact  that the men and women who jomed  in such an abnormal life must have  been abnormal themselves. Though  they tried to select proper physical  mates there was less attention paid  to the mental, and nervous side. The  ia.~t report of tlie experiment was  published some years ago, and it  meieiy refened to the expense sad-  died upon the state m caring for so  many of thc ofis^riug in the lunatic  asylums.  'lhe only     practical side of eugenics  which concerns the medical profession  is thc fact     that     advice is now ami  then requested as     to whether a certain    proposed     alliance is  desnabie.  J t is solely a question as to whether  there is ability to fulfil the rrie and  survive.   Raiely is there miy reference  to the vnubility or vigor of the future  ofi's'.r.uj-,     but     should it be a vital  1'wsln.ii  as in rovai marnages, it ib  *.ettied   upon a general   survey  oi each  i.irniiy and eugenics is not involved in  tlie least.

Eveiv  deimrLuie fiom the normal, whethei  we can it normal, whether we can it  a variation or modification, must be  due ,to a new cai.se. It cann0t be  causeless. If m subsequent geneia-  tions this cause it removed the ah  normality will nob reappear. We  have long given up the idea that disease is inherited, for weknow ltnevei  appears if thc cause is excluded.  I his tendency  to be normal is a biologic law   of such  paramount importance to    physio-ia; s      that it is  as-  tqi-nding     theie is   less     heard of it  The influence of     the environment in  changing organisms is becoming more  and more recognized, and heredity reduced to a mere tendency to do as the  parents      did   in   liKe conditions.      It  wholly explains  why defective parents  if they live in a healthy,  normal manner may     produce line offspring.   The  children     have not been damaged- a_  the parents     have. Instead of ex  cluding such parents from matrimony  by eugenic theories, thc ivho'c Uti.d  of investigation must be in the dnec-  fion of discovering and removing the  cause of the defects.  Personal hygiene must derive many  rules fi am embryologies 'investigation  Hy advocating proper methods of living we will do more good in the way  of human stirpicuiture than by tampering with matrimonial instincts, lt  will be best to let the young foilcs  follow the natmai laws which have so  far kept the worn! stocked with types  good enoj'gh for nature's purpose  They would tell us to attend to oui  own affairs anyhow.

'._ Regarding     the   tragedy, at North
Vancouver of which mention        was
made" in  The Ledger1 recently,," mail
advices : say:,   North Vancouver ha.s a
tragic mystery.    The body of a'.man
with  the  head  almost  severed - from
f-lie body   was fomid  on   Sunday       in
Lonsdale gardens, and  though a coroner's jury  has IffoiigihUii  a-verdict of
suicide,      Chief Constable Dick       of.
North Vancouver and  the provincial
police  are  at work  looking  further.
At the iiii'.iiest   the eyidftiicc of   the
medical man who examined the  body,
was   that- the horrible  wound .'might
have, been  self-inflicted,  but he,     did
.n.ot-.r,.;.uoniiiii-iL. himself by saying, that
he thought it was.
The dead   body   was found  on   Sunday afternoon near the  north- gate of
the  pleasure. grounds known as Loiis-
d��le     gardens.    The body  was, well
dressed in  a dark checked  tweed coat
nnd   vest,  dark striped  trousers. The
underwear  is clean  and   of good tiiinl-
ily,  and   the linen  outside shir.t had
evidently been but newly put on. The
body  wus   tliiitof a man   of about -10
to '15 years- of age,  with drak.("Wrown
mustache,     and hair and a peculiarly
shaped sloping forehead.    --
The discovery  was      made in       a
s,l,can,2ie.'.\vav.-     On Sunday afternoon-
about i  o'clockW.  IT.  Ganvpbell was
l-rooeeding along-  the path near     the
grounds when-he noticed the. bowl of
a'pipe. lie  reasoned   that   where  the
pipe   was the stem; .might be,       and
stepping off the path he  passed   inside  the grounds',  am)'"there  to    -his,
horror,  just  inside.-the' gate  he     almost stumbled over the. body of      a
man   lying   inthe   bracken with,   the
head almost severed from  thu pojly.
Mr.   Cani>pbell /was(entirely   unused
to such scenes and he hurried to notify  soiineone else..Mr.   William.   .1.
Dick --wint- to where the body       was
and.  found   it- lying  on   its right, side,
with-the'arms extended  and       both
hands   clutching'     the hat,  a Wqod-

About three feet from the body was
a pool  of blood. . .    ���
Mr.   Dick-s notified''.Chief  CoiistabJe
Dick of ..'North:'" Vancouver,  who  looks
ollicial  charge.;  The coroner was notified  and the. body was examined by
Dr.  Htl*ld   Dryer.   Mr.  A.  B.    Dip-
lock,  coroner,  empanelled  a jury consisting; of P. A. Aflen, foreman; Geo.
Hartley, Win.  Snider,  James  Blake,
John Gibson and, Chas. H. Purchase.
To the jury the facts  above   were
told.    Dr.  Dryer  also tostilii-d     that
the body had not  been dead for more
than  two days.    Ik had  found  a terrible wound'in the neck  from left to
rig'ht,    cutting all   the blood, vcss-ls
and severing the structures back     to
(lie spinal column.  There was a    <u!
ler cut above  . this  one.   The       �� ;*
might -possibly have been  self-inflicted   by  thc knife   found  by  tlie   ,oi!y.
The  man  m.ight have walked    he few
feet   from   where   the  pool   of   blood
was toi where the body  was Hound.
in the man's pockets were 55 cents
in silvi.T and a French ' six centimes

York ; standard -make, case number

aiiolber mm!). The mimbe'r on the
works was 227t!li(;. There were ���lso
a cigar, a twist of chewing toliucco,
and some ginger  snaps.
The jury  brought in a verdict  that
the man  had died   by  his own  hand.
No   person  in   North Vancouver    has
becm  able  lo identify the  man       and
naturally   the   pluce   is much   worked
up over the affair.

Crowds jostled and pushed, but the
little fi-llow trudged onward manfully, apparently with a definitt/object,

was- looking at t-'ne pretty things."

shriel- heard, and a half hysterical
woman ran forward to ck'tch the
boy. ���'"Rial's mamma; I'uc found
her," said the lad, calmly, as, he was

than his mot'her," the floor walker
commented.���Inter Ocean.
