What Makes Boys Dwarfs.--How many times have we seen boys who were born 

with good constitutions, with force and stamina sufficient to develop 

them into large, vigorous men, become puny dwarfs. At the time when 

they ought to begin to grow and develop more rapidly than ever before, 

their growth is checked and they cease to develop. They are, in fact, 

stunted, dwarfed, like a plant which has a canker-worm eating away at 

its roots. Indeed, there is a veritable canker-worm sapping their 

vitality, undermining their constitutions, and destroying their 

prospects for time and for eternity. Anxious friends may attribute the 

unhappy change to overwork, overstudy, or some similar cause; but from 

a somewhat extended observation we are thoroughly convinced that the 

very vice which we are considering is the viper which blights the 

prospects and poisons the existence of many of these promising boys. 

 

A boy who gives himself up to the practice of secret vice at an early 

age, say as early as seven to ten years of age, is certain to make himself 

a wreck. Instead of having a healthy, vigorous body, with strong muscles 

and a hardy constitution, he will be weak, scrawny, sickly, always 

complaining, never well, and will never know anything about that joyous 

exuberance of life and animal spirits which the young antelope feels 

as it bounds over the plain, or the vigorous young colt as it frisks 

about its pasture, and which every youth ought to feel. 

 

Scrawny, Hollow-Eyed Boys.--Boys ought to be fresh and vigorous as 

little lambs. They ought to be plump, rosy, bright-eyed, and sprightly. 

A boy who is pale, scrawny, hollow-eyed, dull, listless, has something 

the matter with him. Self-abuse makes thousands of just such boys every 

year; and it is just such boys that make vicious, shiftless, haggard, 

unhappy men. This horrible vice steals away the health and vitality 

which are needed to develop the body and the mind; and the lad that 

ought to make his mark in the world, that ought to become a distinguished 

statesman, orator, clergyman, physician, or author, becomes little 

more than a living animal, a mere shadow of what he ought to have been. 

 

Old Boys.--Often have we felt sad when we have heard fond mothers 

speaking in glowing terms of the old ways of their sons, and rather 

glorying that they looked so much older than they were. In nine cases 

out of ten these old-looking boys owe their appearance to this vile 

habit; for it is exceedingly common, and its dreadful effects in 

shriveling and dwarfing and destroying the human form are too plainly 

perceptible, when present, to be mistaken. Oh! this dreadful curse! 

Why will so many of our bright, innocent boys pollute themselves with 

it! 

 

What Makes Idiots.--Reader, have you ever seen an idiot? If you have, 

the hideous picture will never be dissipated from your memory. The 

vacant stare, the drooping, drooling mouth, the unsteady gait, the 

sensual look, the emptiness of mind,--all these you will well remember. 

Did you ever stop to think how idiots are made? It is by this very vice 

that the ranks of these poor daft mortals are being recruited every
