Says a recent French writer: Dr. Bremand, a naval doctor, has obtained
in men supposed to be perfectly healthy a new condition, which he calls
fascination. The inventor considers that this is hypnotism in its
mildest form, which, after repeated experiments, might become catalepsy.
The subject fascinated by Dr. Bremaud--fascination being induced by the
contemplation of a bright spot--falls into a state of stupor. He follows
the operator and servilely imitates his movements, gestures and words;
he obeys suggestions, and a stimulation of the nerves induces
contraction, but the cataleptic pliability does not exist.

A noted public hypnotizer in Paris some years ago produced fascination
in the following manner: He would cause the subject to lean on his
hands, thus fatiguing the muscles. The excitement produced by the
concentrated gaze of a large audience also assisted in weakening the
nervous resistance. At last the operator would suddenly call out: Look
at me! The subject would look up and gaze steadily into the operator's
eyes, who would stare steadily back with round, glaring eyes, and in
most cases subdue his victim.
