THE contrary opinion has been maintained by idealists and a certain election agent with whom I once had to deal and who remarked that something slipped his mind and then went out of his head altogether. At some period, then, a remembrance was in his head and out of his mind ; his mind wras not, then, wholly within his head. Also, one is sometimes assured that with certain people " out of sight is out of mind/' What is in their minds is therefore in sight, and cannot therefore be inside their heads.
