Abstract

This seductive method of treatment is still on the increase. Its exponents are for the most part more enthusiastic than ever. The therapeutical practice of hypnotism is no longer circumscribed by the narrow confines of France. It has spread throughout Continental Europe. Its progress has not been stayed by that watery Gibraltar, the English Channel, but sailing across has laid hold upon the insular conservatism of Great Britain.

America alone has thus far escaped—but we expect it soon as we do all widespread contagion. Let us see, then, to what we may look forward. Hypnotism, not long since wrested from the hands of charlatanism, is held as a trophy by the medical profession. What we know of it in
