INDEX OF AUTHORS

Church found an outlet for this "spring fever" in pilgrimages to remote 

shrines. As Chaucer wrote, in the _Canterbury Tales_:-- 

 

"Whane that Aprille with his showers sote 

The droughts of March hath pierced to the root, 

Thaen longen folk to gon on pilgrimages, 

And palmers for to seeken strange stronds." 

 

[162] L.W. Kline, "The Migratory Impulse," _American Journal of 

Psychology_, 1898, vol. x, especially pp. 21-24. 

 

[163] Mania comes to a crisis in spring, said the old physician, Aretaeus 

(Bk. 1, Ch. V). 

 

[164] This is, at all events, the case in France, Prussia, and Italy. See, 

for instance, Durkheim's discussion of the cosmic factors of suicide, _Le 

Suicide_, 1897, Chapter III. In Spain, as Bernaldo de Quiros shows 

(_Criminologia_, p. 69), there is a slight irregular rise in December, but 

otherwise the curve is perfectly regular, with maximum in June, and 

minimum in January. 

 

[165] This holds good of a south European country, taken separately. A 

chart of the annual incidence of suicide by hanging, in Roumania, 

presented by Minovici (_Archives d'Anthropologie Criminelle_, 1905, p. 

587), shows climaxes of equal height in May and September. 

 

[166] Morselli, _Suicide_, pp. 55-72. 

 

[167] Ogle himself was inclined to think that these breaks were 

accidental, being unaware of the allied phenomena with which they may be 

brought into line. It is true that (as Gaedeken objects to me) the 

autumnal break is very slight, but it is probably real when we are dealing 

with so large a mass of data. 

 

[168] _Pedagogical Seminary_, June, 1891, p. 298. For a very full summary 

and bibliography of investigations regarding growth, see F. Burk, "Growth 

of Children in Height and Weight," _American Journal of Psychology_, 

April, 1898. 

 

[169] _L'Annee Psychologique_, 1898. 

 

[170] _Lancet_, June 6, 1891. Edward Smith had pointed out many years 

earlier that scarlet fever is most fatal in periods of increasing 

vitality.

Dermatology_, May, 1902. 

 

[172] See, e.g., summary in _Internationales Centrablatt fuer 

Anthropologie_, 1902, Heft 4, p. 207. 

 

[173] Summarized in _Zeitschrift fuer Psychologie der Sinnesorgane_, 1903, 

p. 135. 

 

[174] Camerer found that from September to November is the period of 

greatest metabolic activity.
