ties, financial troubles and failure in
work, often lead to melancholia.
Symptoms ia Early Stages
Like dementia praecox, the early
oirns of melancholia are frequently
overlooked. While the disease may
be suspected. In too many cases no
definite action is taken. It is a grave
mistake to neglect giving earty at
tention to melancholia.
In the first stages of this disease
the sufferer complains of headache.

the disease is not sigoronsly treated.
It Is probable that the attacks will
become more severe and' more dlfS

correct the condition. BesxJa mind'
that repeated attacks of melancholia
in later life make a serious disturb
ance, requiring expert attention.
Diet Should Be SI-pU
Sufferers from this disease should
be encouraged to rest as muck as
possible. Exercise and manual work
in the open air are beneficial. .
The diet should be carefully regu
lated and contain plenty of simple
but nourishing food. Avoid fried and
greasy foods, salt, pepper, spices and
condimenta Daily elimination is imp
perative and it Is Important that the
kidneys act properly.
Let me warn against the general
attitude that mental disease is a dis
grace and something to be bushed
up. Persons who suffer from men

those who are afflicted with physical

to make sure that everyone who baa

This column on Friday last had
some reference to Rev. Nehemlah
Doane, who came in the beginning
days to be a teacher in the Oregon
Institute, which became by change
of name in 1S5S Willamette
university. Mr. Doane was con
nected with the old school in var
ious capacities tor a generation.
In the eighties he was the finan
clal agent of the institution had
the task of begging money to
keep its doors open, and at least
a part of the salaries of the teach
ing force paid, though generally
long after their due dates.
There are men now scattered
over the wide world, holding
places of high service, trust and
responsibility, who could tell tales
of soma of the practical Jokes
they perpetrated In their callow
year under those classical shades.
Mr. Doane was tae victim, at at
least ana of them, 'j -

Mr. Doane went to the shed to

Probably Rev. Doane, vexed for
tha time, recalled that he himself
was once a, college student, and
young and capricious. He entered
tha Methodist Biblical Institute
at Concord. New Hampshire, in
April. 1S47, the first dsy of its
existence, and pursued his studies
there until called to the Oregon
