INDEX

natural brilliancy, they are sunken, present red edges, are somewhat 

sore, perhaps, and are surrounded by a dark ring, the patient, 

especially if a child, should be suspected and carefully watched. It 

should be observed, however, that dyspepsia, debility from any cause, 

and especially loss of sleep, will produce some or all of these signs, 

and no one should be accused of the vice upon the evidence of these 

indications alone, neither could he be justly suspected so long as his 

symptoms could be accounted for by legitimate causes. 

 

33. An habitually moist, cold hand, is a suspicious circumstance in 

a young person who is not known to be suffering from some constitutional 

disease. 

 

34. _Palpitation of the heart_, frequently occurring, denotes a 

condition of nervous disturbance which has some powerful cause, and 

which may often be found to be the vice in question. 

 

35. _Hysteria_ in females may be regarded as a suspicious circumstance 

when frequently occurring on very slight occasions, and especially if 

there is no hereditary tendency to the disease. 

 

36. _Chlorosis_, or _green sickness_, is very often caused by the unholy 

practice under consideration. It is very commonly attributed, when 

occurring in young women, to menstrual derangements; but it is only 

necessary to remember that these menstrual irregularities are in many 

cases the result of the same habit, as has been already pointed out. 

 

37. _Epileptic fits_ in children are not infrequently the result of 

vicious habits. 

 

38. _Wetting the bed_ is an evidence of irritation which may be 

connected with the practice; it should be looked after. 

 

39. _Unchastity of speech_ and fondness for obscene stories betray a 

condition of mind which does not exist in youth who are not addicted 

to this vice. 

 

As previously remarked, no single one of the above signs should be 

considered as conclusive evidence of the habit in any individual; but 

any one of them may, and should, arouse suspicion and watchfulness. 

If the habit really exists, but a short time will elapse before other 

signs will be noticed, and when several point in the same direction, 

the evidence may be considered nearly, if not quite, conclusive. But 

persistent watching will enable the positive signs to be detected 

sooner or later, and then there can no longer be doubt. It is, of course, 

necessary to give the individual no suspicion that he is being watched, 

as that would put him so effectually on his guard as, possibly, to defy 

detection. 

 

Positive Signs.--The absolutely positive signs of solitary vice are 

very few. Of course the most certainly positive of all is detection 

in the act. Sometimes this is difficult, with such consummate cunning 

do the devotees of this Moloch pursue their debasing practice. If a 

child is noticed to seek a certain secluded spot with considerable 

regularity, he should be carefully followed and secretly watched, for 

several days in succession if need be. Many children pursue the practice 

at night after retiring. If the suspected one is observed to become
