dinner table until vice becomes almost a physical necessity! 

 

Nothing tends so powerfully to keep the passions in abeyance as a simple 

diet, free from condiments, especially when coupled with a generous 

amount of exercise. 

 

The influence of tobacco in leading to unchastity has been referred 

to in another connection. This is assuredly a not uncommon cause. When 

a boy places the first cigar or quid of tobacco to his lips, he takes--if 

he has not previously done so--the first step in the road to infamy; 

and if he adds wine or beer, he takes a short cut to the degradation 

of his manhood by the loss of virtue. 

 

 

 

Precocious Sexuality.--The causes of a too early development of sexual 

peculiarities, as manifested in infantile flirtations and early signs 

of sexual passion, were dwelt upon quite fully in a previous connection, 

and we need not repeat them here. Certain it is that few things can 

be more dangerous to virtue than the premature development of those 

sentiments which belong only to puberty and later years. It is a most 

unnatural, but not uncommon, sight to see a girl of tender age evincing 

all those characters which mark the wanton of older years. 

 

Man's Lewdness.--It cannot be denied that men are in the greatest degree 

responsible for the "social evil." The general principle holds true 

here as elsewhere that the supply is regulated by the demand. If the 

patrons of prostitution should withdraw their support by a sudden 

acquisition of virtue, how soon would this vilest of traffics cease! 

The inmates of brothels would themselves become continent, if not 

virtuous, as the result of such a spasm of chastity in men. 

 

Again, the ranks of fallen women, which are rapidly thinned by loathsome 

diseases and horrid deaths, are largely recruited from that class of 

unfortunates for whose fall faithless lovers or cunning, heartless 

libertines are chiefly responsible. The weak girl who, through too much 

trust, has been deceived and robbed of her dearest treasure, is disowned 

by relatives, shunned by her acquaintances, and turned out upon a cold 

world without money, without friends, without a character. What can 

she do? Respectable employment she cannot find, for rumor follows her. 

There seems to be but one door open, the one which she herself so 

unintentionally opened. In despair, she enters the "open road to hell," 

and to her first sad error adds a life of shame. Meanwhile, the villain 

who betrayed her still maintains his standing in society, and plies 

his arts to win another victim. Is there not an unfair discrimination 

here? Should not the seducer be blackened with an infamy at least as 

deep as that which society casts on the one betrayed?
