The Only Hope.--The only hope for one who has contracted this disease 

is to lead a life of perfect continence ever after, and by a most careful 

life, by conforming strictly to the laws of health, by bathing and 

dieting, he may possibly avoid the horrid consequences of the later 

stages of the malady. Mercury will not cure, nor will any other poison, 

as before remarked. 

 

The following strong testimony on this subject we quote from an 

admirable pamphlet by Prof. Fred. H. Gerrish, M.D.:-- 

 

"The diseases dependent upon prostitution are appallingly frequent, 

a distinguished surgeon recently declaring that one person in twenty 

in the United States has syphilis, a malady so ineradicable that a 

profound observer has remarked that 'a man who is once thus poisoned 

will die a syphilitic, and, in the day of Judgment, he will be a 

syphilitic ghost.' Prof. Gross says: 'What is called scrofula, struma, 

or tuberculosis, is, I have long been satisfied from careful 

observation of the sick and a profound study of the literature of the 

subject, in a great majority of cases, if not invariably, merely 

syphilis in its more remote stages.' Though there are doubtless many 

of us who believe that a not inconsiderable proportion of scrofulous 

and phthisical cases are clearly due to other causes than syphilis, 

we must admit that this statement contains a very large element of 

truth." 

 

Hereditary Effects of Venereal Disease.--The transgressor is not the 

only sufferer. If he marries, his children, if they survive infancy, 

will in later years show the effects of their father's sin, exhibiting 

the forms of the disease seen in its later stages. Scrofula, consumption, 

cancer, rickets, diseases of the brain and nerves, decay of the bones 

by caries or necrosis, and other diseases, arise in this way. 

 

But it generally happens that the child dies before birth, or lingers 

out a miserable existence of a few days or weeks thereafter. A most 

pitiable sight these little ones are. Their faces look as old as 

children of ten or twelve. Often their bodies become reduced before 

death to the most wretched skeletons. Their hollow, feeble cry sends 

a shudder of horror through the listener, and impresses indelibly the 

terrible consequences of sexual sin. Plenty of these scrawny infants 

may be seen in the lying-in hospitals. 

 

No one can estimate how much of the excessive mortality of infants is 

owing to this cause. 

 

In children who survive infancy, its blighting influence may be seen 

in the notched, deformed teeth, and other defects; and very often it 

will be found, upon looking into the mouth of the child, that the soft 

palate, and perhaps the hard palate as well, is in a state of ulceration. 

There is more than a suspicion that this disease may be transmitted 

for several generations, perhaps remaining latent during the life-time 

of one, and appearing in all its virulence in the next. 

 

Man the Only Transgressor.--Man is the only animal that abuses his 

sexual organization by making it subservient to other ends than 

reproduction; hence he is the only sufferer from this foul disease,
