V LUME III* COLUMBUS, TEXAS, SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER 3, NUMBER 1 K the Jerk*. r - One If tie most curious of physiological studies ^ertains* to the grotesque and in- voluntar^bodily motions often connected with powerful religious excitements. There is a present illustration of these phenome- non in the revival «in Ireland, where many af#i >ut through violent bodily exerbis.es which they cannot control, and others are thrown into a state of stupor and trance for .hoars together. The following is an account of-the Kentucky jerks, a mono- mania which prevailed sixty years ago: The Jeiks first appeared during a sacra- mental occasion in Tennessee, when several hundred were seized with this strange and involuntary agitation. The subject was instantly taken with spasms or convulsions through his whole system. At first there was only a simple jerking of the arms. When the neck was affected, the head was thrown backwards and forward with a rapidity and violence impossible to be imitated.^2t ...

They are simply depressions in certain prairies resembling, to some extent, hog wallows, whonce they have received their name. Sometimes whole prairies aTe covered with these hog wallows. How to account for them has atways been a mystery to us, till quite re- cently. Our theory 06 their formation is simply the cracking open of the soil during drouth, and the washing down of the soil by the subsequent rains, undoubtedly causing the depressions or hog wallows. Now, in proof of this theory, we state this fact, that only a few days ago we rode through a hug wallow prairie and observed that almost every hog wallow ...
