TRICKS OF MEMORY
STRANGE PHENOMENA .THAT
Accounted for by Some on the Basle
of Transmigration of Souls—Sec-
ond Explanation Is a Phys-
“Have we ever lived before?” Is a
question which Is Interesting many
correspondents of British newspapers.
Dr. Andrew Wilson analyzes the
strange phenomena of memory given
by the contributors In part as follows:
“The doctrine of metempsychosis or
transmigration of souls represents a
very ancient belief. Not merely did
It credit the possibility that tho soul
after death could be transferred from
one human being to another, but It
also held that the human soul might
take up Its abodo In another form of
life and be transferred from the purely
human to the lower animal domain
The theory asserts that aB each Btage
Is ended and a new era begun tho
soul sheds most of the features it il-
lustrated In the life It left, retaining
now and then, however, vague memo-
ries of some of Its antecedent states.
Such memories, forcibly projected
Into the foreground of our existence
today, It Is held, Bhould convince us
that we have 'lived before.’
"Everything we have heard or seen
or otherwise appreciated through the
agency of our sense organs—every
Impression, every sensation—is really
stored up within those brain cells
which exercise tho memory function.
True, we may not be able to recall all
of them at will; many are doubtless
beyond the reach of the power that
revives and prints off for us positives
from our stored-up mental negatives.
But It Is none the less significant that
on occasion wo can disinter memories
of events whose date lies very far
back In our lives—recollections, these,
perhaps, we have never realized after
their reception, but lying latent, and
only waiting the requisite and proper
stimulus to awaken them and to bring
them to the surface of our life.
This expresses briefly what we
mean by ‘subliminal consciousness.’
It Is that under-layer of stored-up Im-
pressions and memories which Is only
fully awakened in certain brain states
and of which. In our ordinary life, we
only receive the faintest and most
occasional reminders of Its existence.
Wo do not recognize the source of
every bit of ancient news the subli-
minal consciousness may bring to
light and so we treat Its resurrections
as If they wore reflectlqns from some
previous phase of existence. But often
the clew Is supplied us and tho ap-
parent mysterious awakening of past
life apears merely as a recollection,
the origin, of which we did not at first
“Even the Idea that sometimes
strikes us on entering a strange place,
hithe[to unknown to us, that wo 'have
been there before,' is capable of ra-
tional explanation. Onr brain Is built
on the double principle, and acts In
appreciating our surroundings through
tho simultaneous work of Its two In-
tellectual centers. If there exists a
slight discrepancy In thlH simultan-
eous W’ork, so that one half of our
brain appreciates the scene a little
before tho other half, we are presented
with tho false memory of huvlng seen
the placo before."

9 oo Dkors
In Winchester, England, a grocer
began to miss money from his till,
and set his wife to watch. After two
weeks the wife was not able to de-
tect the thief, thdugh money was
stolen almost every day. There were
two clerks In the store, and the
grocer finally called them thieves
and discharged them.
When two others had taken their
places the money continued to dis-
appear, and the case was given to the
police. An officer who hid under the
.counter solved the problem. He
found bits of paper representing
about $50 that the mice had made
ne3ts of. They had entered the till
through a hole In the back and taken
the bills one at a time.
The two clerks who had been dis-
charged for dishonesty brought suit
for damages, and the other day the
grocer was compelled to pay them
$300 each. _

Publish a Book About Coffee.

ers and roasters have taken to typo
to promote the sale of their wares
and check If possible the rapid growth
of the use of Postum Food Coffee.
In the coffee Importers’ book n chap-
ter Is headed "Coffee as a Medicine,"
and advocates Its use as such.
Here Is an admission of the truth,
most -Important to all Interested.
Every physician knows, and every
thoughtful person should know, that
habitual use of any ' medicine” of the
drug stimulant typo of coffee or whis-
