during the winter months. Thus it may be said that the spring sexual 

climax corresponds, roughly, with growth in height and arrest of growth in 

weight, while the autumn climax corresponds roughly with a period of 

growth in weight and arrest of growth in height. Malling-Hansen found that 

slight variations in the growth of the children were often dependent on 

changes in temperature, in such a way that a rise of temperature, even 

lasting for only a few days, caused an increase of growth, and a fall of 

temperature a decrease in growth. At Halle, Schmid-Monnard found that 

nearly all growth in weight took place in the second half of the year, and 

that the holidays made little difference. In America, Peckham has shown 

that increase of growth is chiefly from the 1st of May to the 1st of 

September.[168] Among young girls in St. Petersburg, Jenjko found that 

increase in weight takes place in summer. Goepel found that increase in 

height takes place mostly during the first eight months of the year, 

reaching a maximum in August, declining during the autumn and winter, in 

February being _nil_, while in March there is sometimes loss in weight 

even in healthy children. 

 

In the course of a study as to the consumption of bread in Normal schools 

during each month of the year, as illustrating the relationship between 

intellectual work and nutrition, Binet presents a number of curves which 

bring out results to which he makes no allusion, as they are outside his 

own investigation. Almost without exception, these curves show that there 

is an increase in the consumption of bread in spring and in autumn, the 

spring rise being in February, March, and April; the autumn rise in 

October or November. There are, however, certain fallacies in dealing with 

institutions like Normal schools, where the conditions are not perfectly 

regular throughout the year, owing to vacations, etc. It is, therefore, 

instructive to find that under the monotonous conditions of prison-life 

precisely the same spring and autumn rises are found. Binet takes the 

consumption of bread in the women's prison at Clermont, where some four 

hundred prisoners, chiefly between the ages of thirty and forty, are 

confined, and he presents two curves for the years 1895 and 1896. The 

curves for these two years show certain marked disagreements with each 

other, but both unite in presenting a distinct rise in April, preceded and 

followed by a fall, and both present a still more marked autumn rise, in 

one case in September and November, in the other case in October.[169] 

 

Some years ago, Sir J. Crichton-Browne stated that a 

manifestation of the sexual stimulus of spring is to be found in 

the large number of novels read during the month of March 

("Address in Psychology" at the annual meeting of the British 

Medical Association, Leeds, 1889; _Lancet_, August 14, 1889). 

The statement was supported by figures furnished by lending 

libraries, and has since been widely copied. It would certainly 

be interesting if we could so simply show the connection between 

love and season, by proving that when the birds began to sing 

their notes, the young person's fancy naturally turns to brood 

over the pictures of mating in novels. I accordingly applied to 

Mr. Capel Shaw, Chief Librarian of the Birmingham Free Libraries 

(specially referred to by Sir J. Crichton-Browne), who furnished 

me with the Reports for 1896 and 1897-98 (this latter report is
