them out. 

 

A young man sees the advertisement of a book which will be sent free, 

postage paid, if he will only send his address. The title of the book 

being of some such character as "Manhood Regained," or "Nervous 

Debility," he imagines it may suit his case, and sends his name. Return 

mail brings the book, which is a wretched jargon of confused terms and 

appalling descriptions of the effects of self-abuse, with the most 

shameful exaggerations of the significance of the most trivial symptoms. 

The ignorant youth reads what he supposes to be a description of his 

own case, and is frightened nearly to death. He is most happily relieved, 

however, to find that the generous publishers of the book have a remedy 

which is just adapted to his case, but which is so precious that it 

cannot be afforded at less than .00 for a sufficient quantity to 

effect a cure. He willingly parts with his hard-earned dollars, and 

gets, in return, some filthy mixture that did not cost a shilling. 

 

Another trap set is called an "Anatomical Museum." The anatomical part 

of the exhibition consists chiefly of models and figures calculated 

to excite the passions to the highest pitch. At stated intervals the 

proprietor, who is always a "doctor," and by preference a German, 

delivers lectures on the effects of masturbation, in which he resorts 

to every device to excite the fears and exaggerate the symptoms of his 

hearers, who are mostly young men and boys. Thus he prepares his victim, 

and when he once gets him within his clutches, he does not let him go 

until he has robbed him of his last dollar. 

 

We might present almost any number of illustrations of the ways in which 

these human sharks pursue their villainy. If there were a dungeon deep, 

dark, and dismal enough for the punishment of such rascals, we should 

feel strongly inclined to petition to have them incarcerated in it. 

They defy all laws, civil as well as moral, but are cunning enough to 

keep outside of prison bars; and thus they wax rich by robbery, and 

thrive by deceit. A terrible recompense awaits them at the final 

settlement, though they escape so easily now. 

 

Closing Advice.--We cannot finish this chapter without a few closing 

words of advice to those who are suffering in any way from the results 

of sexual transgression. We are especially anxious to call attention 

to a few points of practical and vital interest to all who are suffering 

in the manner indicated. 

 

1. Give the matter prompt attention. Do not delay to adopt curative 

measures under the delusive idea that the difficulty will disappear 

of itself. Thousands have procrastinated in this way until their 

constitutions have been so hopelessly undermined as to make treatment 

of little value. The intrinsic tendency of this disease is to continue 

to increase. It progresses only in one direction. It never "gets well 

of itself," as some have imagined that it may do. Something must be 

done to effect a cure; and the longer treatment is delayed, the more 

difficult the case will become.
