A REMARKABLE CASE. ATAVISM IN CHILDREN. Is it possible that atavism can go so far as reported in the remarkable ease of a three and a-half years' old girl who is puzzling the Willegden Board of Guardians? The child is reallv an '? uncontrolled primitive wild animaL I She has had to be placed in a cot with ! high bars. , It appears that she has torn to shreds the strongest cloth, and has gnawtd through the strongest sack cloth in which she had been clad.

Such paucity cf thought does not exist in our time, and swear words should not be tolerated by decent peo- i pie, aad hasty tempers should be held ' in r-heck as shewing' we realise our dig- ; nined re...
