physical constitution of those who indulge it. The young lady who has 

become infatuated with a passion for flirting, courting the society 

of young men simply for the pleasure derived from their attentions, 

is educating herself in a school which will totally unfit her for the 

enjoyment of domestic peace and happiness should she have all the 

conditions necessary for such enjoyment other than those which she 

herself must furnish. More than this, she is very likely laying the 

foundation for lifelong disease by the dissipation, late hours, late 

suppers, evening exposures, fashionable dressing, etc., the almost 

certain accompaniments of the vice we are considering. She is surely 

sacrificing a life of real true happiness for the transient 

fascinations of unreal enjoyment, pernicious excitement. 

 

It may be true, and undoubtedly is the case, that the greater share 

of the guilt of flirtation lies at the door of the female sex; but there 

do exist such detestable creatures as male flirts. In general, the male 

flirt is a much less worthy character than the young lady who makes 

a pastime of flirtation. He is something more than a flirt. In nine 

cases out of ten, he is a rake as well. His object in flirting is to 

gratify a mean propensity at the expense of those who are pure and 

unsophisticated. He is skilled in the arts of fascination and intrigue. 

Slowly he winds his coils about his victim, and before she is aware 

of his real character, she has lost her own. 

 

Such wretches ought to be punished in a purgatory by themselves, made 

seven times hotter than for ordinary criminals. Society is full of these 

lecherous villains. They insinuate themselves into the drawing-rooms 

of the most respectable families; they are always on hand at social 

gatherings of every sort. They haunt the ball-room, the theater, and 

the church, when they can forward their infamous plans by seeming to 

be pious. Not infrequently they are well supplied with a stock of pious 

cant, which they employ on occasion to make an impression. They are 

the sharks of society, and often seize in their voracious maws the 

fairest and brightest ornaments of a community. The male flirt is a 

monster. Every man ought to despise him; and every woman ought to spurn 

him as a loathsome social leper. 

 

Youthful Flirtations.--Flirting is not confined to young men and women. 

The contagion extends to little boys and girls, whose heads ought to 

be as empty of all thoughts of sexual relations as the vacuum of an 

air-pump of air. The intimate association of young boys and girls in 

our common schools, and, indeed, in the majority of educational 

institutions, gives abundant opportunity for the fostering of this kind 

of a spirit, so prejudicial to healthful mental and moral development. 

Every educator who is alive to the objects and interests of his 

profession knows too well the baneful influence of these premature and 

pernicious tendencies. Many times has the teacher watched with a sad 

heart the withering of all his hopes for the intellectual progress of
