suspicion. If a boy who has previously been cheerful, pleasant, dutiful, 

and gentle, suddenly becomes morose, cross, peevish, irritable, and 

disobedient, be sure that some foul influence is at work with him. When 

a girl, naturally joyous, happy, confiding, and amiable, becomes 

unaccountably gloomy, sad, fretful, dissatisfied, and unconfiding, be 

certain that a blight of no insignificant character is resting upon 

her. Make a careful study of the habits of such children; and if there 

is no sudden illness to account for the change in their character, it 

need not require long deliberation to arrive at the true cause, for 

it will rarely be found to be anything other than solitary indulgence. 

 

5. _Lassitude_ is as unnatural for a child as for a young kitten. A 

healthy child will be active, playful, full of life and animal spirits. 

If a young child manifests indisposition to activity, a dislike for 

play, lifelessness and languor, suspect his habits, if there is no other 

reasonable cause to which to attribute his unnatural want of childish 

sprightliness. 

 

6. In connection with the preceding symptom will generally be found, 

instead of that natural brilliance of expression in the eyes and 

countenance, an unnatural dullness and vacantness altogether foreign 

to childhood. This is a just ground for suspicion. 

 

7. _Sleeplessness_ is another symptom of significance. Sound sleep is 

natural for childhood; and if sleeplessness be not occasioned by 

dietetic errors, as eating indigestible food, eating between meals, 

or eating late suppers, it may justly be a cause for suspicion of evil 

habits. 

 

8. _Failure of mental capacity_ without apparent cause should occasion 

suspicion of evil practices. When a child who has previously learned 

readily, mastered his lessons easily, and possessed a retentive memory, 

shows a manifest decline in these directions, fails to get his lessons, 

becomes stupid, forgetful, and inattentive, he has probably become the 

victim of a terrible vice, and is on the road to speedy mental as well 

as physical ruin. Watch him. 

 

9. _Fickleness_ is another evidence of the working of some 

deteriorating influence, for only a weak mind is fickle. 

 

10. _Untrustworthiness_ appearing in a child should attract attention 

to his habits. If he has suddenly become heedless, listless, and 

forgetful, so that he cannot be depended upon, though previously not 

so, lay the blame upon solitary indulgence. This vice has a wonderful 

influence in developing untruthfulness. A child previously honest, 

under its baneful influence will soon become an inveterate liar. 

 

11. _Love of solitude_ is a very suspicious sign. Children are naturally 

sociable, almost without exception. They have a natural dread of being 

alone. When a child habitually seeks seclusion without a sufficient 

cause, there are good grounds for suspecting him of sinful habits. The 

barn, the garret, the water-closet, and sometimes secluded places in 

the woods, are the favorite resorts of masturbators. They should be 

carefully followed and watched, unobserved.
