INDEX

cauterized, and tortured in sundry other ways, is almost too horrible 

to think of; yet they endure it, often willingly, thinking it but just 

punishment for their sins, and perhaps hoping to expiate them by this 

cruel penance. By these procedures, the emissions are sometimes 

temporarily checked, but the patient is not cured, nevertheless, and 

the malady soon returns. 

 

The employment of rings, pessaries, and numerous other mechanical 

devices for preventing emissions, is entirely futile. No dependence 

can be placed upon them. Some of these contrivances are very ingenious, 

but they are all worthless, and time and money spent upon them are thrown 

away. 

 

Quacks.--The victims of self-abuse fall an easy prey to the hordes of 

harpies, fiends in human shape, who are ready at every turn to make 

capital out of their misfortunes. From no other class of persons do 

quacks and charlatans derive so rich a harvest as from these erring 

ones. It is not uncommon to find a man suffering from seminal weakness 

who has paid to sundry parties hundreds of dollars for "specifics" which 

they advertised as "sure cures." We have seen and treated scores of 

these patients, but never yet met a single case that had received 

benefit from patent medicines. 

 

The newspapers are full of the advertisements of these heartless 

villains. They advertise under the guise of "clergymen," charitable 

institutions, "cured invalids," and similar pretenses. Usually they 

offer for sale some pill or mixture which will be a _sure cure_, in 

proof of which they cite the testimonials of numerous individuals who 

never lived, or, at least, never saw either them or their filthy 

compounds; or, they promise to send free a recipe which will be a certain 

cure. Here is a specimen recipe which was sent by a "reverend" gentleman 

who claims to be a returned missionary from South America so intent 

on doing good that he charges nothing for his invaluable information:-- 

 

Extract of Corrossa apimis, 

" " Selarmo umbelifera, 

Powdered Alkermes latifolia, 

Extract of Carsadoc herbalis. 

 

This remarkable recipe is warranted to cure all the evils arising from 

self-abuse, with no attention to diet and no inconvenience of any kind, 

to prevent consumption and insanity, and to cure venereal diseases. 

It is also declared to be a perfectly "_safe_" remedy for all female 

difficulties, which means that it will aid nefarious purposes. 

 

Along with the recipe comes the suggestion that the druggist may not 

be able to furnish all the ingredients in a perfectly pure state, and 

so, for the accommodation of suffering humanity, this noble 

philanthropist has taken infinite pains to secure them direct from 

South America, and has them put up in neat little packages which he 

will send, post-paid, for the trifle of .50, just one cent _less_ 

than actual cost. Then he tells what purports to be the history of his 

own nastiness, with a generous spicing of pious cant, and closes with 

a benediction on all who have fallen into the same slough, and 

especially those who will send for his fabulous foreign weeds to help
