1. In a small room was found the dead body of an electrician who had electrocuted himself by connecting the poles of an electric light bracket, one with the brass handle of the door, the other with the key which had been pushed into his anus. The body was found with one hand clasping the handle of the door to complete the circuit.

It may be assumed that this was an accidental suicide.

2. An officer in the French Army would address some sentinel and, having ascertained that he was on fixed duty, would take off his cap, tell him that his hair was too long, produce a pair of clippers from his own pocket and cut off all the sentinel's hair. On one occasion, he did the same to a private soldier in a train, ordered him to lower his trousers and proceeded further to cut off his public hair.

The authors correctly infer that both of these patients were homosexual, but they draw no conclusions as to the homosexuality being conscious or unconscious.
