PROFESSIONS THAT WORRY. [Newspaper Article] — Werribee Shire Banner — 4 July 1912
PIHOlEESBIOPS THAT WORIRY. Most of us have a notion that the particular husiness in which we hap pen to be engaged entails more than sufficient worry. But what business or calling does rank worst from the worrying point of view it would he difficult to say. Some sidelights are thrown on the question, however, by the reports of the Lunacy Commissioners. F'romu these it would appear that the pro fession of mining or civil engineering is the most trying ; for 52 out of every 10,000 men who follow it go mad. Then comes the warehouse man with 47 to every 10,000. Blaker are high in the scale, and soI too, are the general labourers. But tie agricultural Inhourer, especially_ the indoor farm-servant, comen very low and only aboiut one in ten thousand is driven to madness. Throughout the whole list, one fact is plain-the more competitive the trade, whether it he skilled or un sk.illed work, the higner the lunacy rate.
