existence as they daily watch the progress of a malignant ulceration 

which is destroying their organs of speech, or burrowing deep into the 

recesses of the skull, penetrating even to the brain itself! Even the 

bones become rottenness; foul running sores appear on different 

portions of the body, and may even cover it entirely. Perhaps the nose, 

or the tongue, or the lips, or an eye, or some other prominent organ, 

is lost. Still the miserable sufferer lingers on, life serving only 

to prolong the torture. To many of them, death would be a grateful 

release, even with the fires of retributive justice before their eyes; 

for hell itself could scarcely be more awful punishment than that which 

they daily endure. 

 

Thousands of Victims.--The venturesome youth need not attempt to calm 

his fears by thinking that these are only exceptional cases, for this 

is not the truth. In any city, one who has an experienced eye can 

scarcely walk a dozen blocks on busy streets without encountering the 

woeful effects of sexual transgression. Neither do these results come 

only from long-continued violations of the laws of chastity. The very 

first departure from virtue may occasion all the worst effects 

possible. 

 

Effects of Vice Ineradicable.--Another fearful feature of this 

terrible disease is that when once it invades the system its eradication 

is impossible. No drug, no chemical, can antidote its virulent poison 

or drive it from the system. Various means may smother it, possibly 

for a life-time; but yet it is not cured, and the patient is never safe 

from a new outbreak. Prof. Bumstead, an acknowledged authority on this 

subject, after observing the disease for many years, says that "he never 

after treatment, however prolonged, promises immunity for the 

future."[44] Dr. Van Buren, professor of surgery at Bellevue Hospital 

Medical College, New York, bears the same testimony. 

 

[Footnote 44: Venereal Disease.] 

 

Prof. Van Buren also says that he has often seen the disease occur upon 

the lips of young ladies who were entirely virtuous, but who were 

engaged to men who had contracted the disease and had communicated it 

to them by the act of kissing. Virtuous wives have not infrequently 

had their constitutions hopelessly ruined by contracting the disease 

from husbands who had themselves been inoculated either before or after 

marriage, by illicit intercourse. Several such unfortunate cases have 

fallen under our observation, and there is reason to believe that they 

are not infrequent.
