INDEX

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

day. Every visitor to an insane asylum sees scores of them; ruined in 

mind and body, only the semblance of a human being, bereft of sense, 

lower than a beast in many respects, a human being hopelessly lost to 

himself and to the world!--oh, most terrible thought!--yet once pure, 

intelligent, active, perhaps the hope of a fond mother, the pride of 

a doting father, and possibly possessed of natural ability to become 

greatly distinguished in some of the many noble and useful walks of 

life; now sunk below the brute through the degrading, destroying 

influence of a lustful gratification. 

 

Boys, are you guilty of this terrible sin? have you even once in this 

way yielded to the tempter's voice? Stop, consider, think of the awful 

results, repent, confess to God, reform. Another step in that direction 

and you may be lost, soul and body. You cannot dally with the tempter. 

You must escape now or never. Don't delay. 

 

Young Dyspeptics.--If we leave out of the consideration the effects 

of bad food and worse cookery, there is in our estimation no other cause 

so active in occasioning the early breaking down of the digestive organs 

of our American boys. A boy of ten or twelve years of age ought to have 

a stomach capable of digesting anything not absolutely indigestible; 

but there are to-day thousands and thousands of boys of that age whose 

stomachs are so impaired as to be incapable of digesting any but the 

most simple food. The digestion being ruined, the teeth soon follow 

suit. Hardly one boy in a dozen has perfectly sound teeth. With a bad 

stomach and bad teeth, a foundation for disease is laid which is sure 

to result in early decay of the whole body. 

 

In this awful vice do we find a cause, too, for the thousands of cases 

of consumption in young men. At the very time when they ought to be 

in their prime, they break down in health and become helpless invalids 

for life, or speedily sink into an early grave. 

 

Upon their tombstones might justly be graven, "Here lies a 

self-murderer." Providence is not to blame; nor is climate, weather, 

overwork, overstudy, or any other even seemingly plausible cause, to 

be blamed. Their own sins have sunk them in mental, moral, and physical 

perdition. Such a victim literally dies by his own hand, a veritable 

suicide. Appalling thought! It is a grand thing to die for one's 

principles, a martyr to his love of right and truth. One may die 

blameless who is the victim of some dire contagious malady which he 

could not avoid; even the poor, downcast misanthrope whose hopes are 

blighted and whose sorrows multiplied, may possibly be in some degree 

excused for wishing to end his misery with his life; but the wretched 

being who sheds his life-blood by the disgusting maneuvers of 

self-pollution--what can be said to extenuate _his_ guilt? His is a 

double crime. Let him pass from the memory of his fellow-men. He will 

perish, overwhelmed with his own vileness. Let him die, and return to 

the dust from which he sprang.
