Duality of tho mind In its marked
character ia ever before us; there is
not a single work of imagination por
traying human character in which
the duality is not exemplified. Fio

noticed recently that one of tho most
analytical and realistic writers of
fiction in Franco, and one of the most
popular, M. Guyot, recognizes not
only the art but the science of the
In describing one of his imaginary
characters, or more probably a real
charactor transformed from the or
dinary daily life into his pages under
a false namo, ho explains duality on
the same principle thatWigan did
long before him. He is dealing with
a mnn who has two brains brains
which are not of the same mold, and
therefore not of the same action
and he writes his character from this
standpoint with all the vigor of a
master in literature and the precision
of a man of science.
Wigan was of opinion that no single
person lias the two brains exactly bal
anced. He considered the most power
ful mind was that in which the two
brains, both being healthy, were near-
believed that that was also a cood
condition in which one brain took the
leading part, and in which the other
brain, in accord with the stronger,
lent the stronger its assistance. A
mind sustained in this manner was
strong for endurance and one that
was able to undertake, with certainty
of successful work, the most difficult
and hazardous labors. The minds of
mon like Cromwell, Washington,
Wellington, Franklin, would be of
this last named cast, while tho minds
of the giants oWntellect, of Napoleon,
Newton, Columbus, would be con
structed on two brains of equal pow
er, both in unison in their capacity
and will for action.
In common life the two brains act
together with ftiiuicioiit unity to

in which the divergence is so consid
erable that balance is broken, and
uituuiuvik - "in, o cuu mammy.
Wigan sums-up the argument in a
very clear manner. He says: "I
think it may be assumed without
risk of contradiction that the fact of
each brain being perfect and a com
plete instrument of thought is abun
duntly proved. That each, while in
health, corresponds in action with its
fellow is obvious from the fact that
this unison and correspondence give
only one result, as in the case of
two eyes producing eiucrlo vision:
that when from anv causa ono
brain is disordered a discro:wncv in
the two processes of thinking takes
place; that the healthy brain (aid
ed by the action of such of the organs
of its fellow as are not affected by
the disorder which disturbs the oth
ers) can in nearly 090 cases in 1,000,
according to the usual proportion in
this country, control all manifesta
tions of morbid emotion or judg
ment, but that the thousandth case
is the madman."
Tho balance Is sufficiently nre-

as the grass is generally abundant, the
stock arrives at its destination in good
condition. The fact that last season
practically all the wethers were driven
off the ranges accounts for higher prices
and scarcity of mutton in the Northwest
this year. The loss last winter to herds
was very light, nearly 25 per cent less
than usual, and sheep are all in rood
condition. Sheep on these ranges are
said to be the finest raied in the world,
