Suicide lo .subject which bae long- exercised the speculations of the moralist, the philoso pher, and the physician. The frequency with which men of Intellect, in all nzea, have presumed to sever tbe link which bound them to tbls life, Is tn Itself sufficiently remarkable And the atmothere of mystery which commonly nurrounds such caes, the choaen and carefully prepared iccrcRy of the dod, and the frequent absence of apparent motive, and the startling contradiction between the horror of the art and the lolty character of those who perpetrate It, lend a piquant though mournful curiosity to all such investigations, i Clearly, the theory of mental aberration will not account for many of the more conspicuous suicides.
