A Philadelpliia physician says thai seven out of ton automonilists Ooca sionally suffer from a disease whieh he calis "wrong motor inania." "There are generally- I may say always - in an autonio'iile three levers, one to steet vrith, one ti í;i fast with and the other to stop sliort. And tlie victim. the poor sufferer, in this deadly crisis forgets whtch is - hich íd the matter of lev-rs, decides to guess and pulls, naturally, the wroiig one. That is why, in an acute attaelí of wrong lever niania, Mrs. Heriaann Öelriehs. at Newport last summer, lrove over a stone wall, up a ñight of marble stéps and through the stained jrlass Windows of the music room of ;i friend. It is why Alfred Vanderbilt went swifily in an automobiíe Dhaeton down one of the cliffs backward into ihe sen, and it is why Harry Lehr, in a petroleum T cart, completely demolished .-i greenhouse of glass. We Iiave not fouud a remedy."
