Why the memory of black should have this effect can not be fully explained, just as the action of many drugs cannot be explained; but it is evident that the body must be less susceptible to disturbances of all kinds when the mind is under control, and only when the mind is un der control can black be remembered perfectly. That pain can be produced in any part of the body by the action of the mind is not a new observation; and if the mind can produce pain, it is not surprising that it should also be able to relieve pain and the conditions which produce it.

Whatever the explanation, however, the facts have been attested by numerous proofs, and are of the greatest practical value.

With such assistance it is seldom or never impossible.
