Barely Escaped.--L. R. of H----, a young man of about twenty-five years 

of age, presented himself for treatment, a few years ago, for the 

consequence of self-abuse. Having been taught the habit by evil 

companions when just emerging into manhood, he had indulged his 

passions without restraint for several years, not knowing the evil 

consequences until he began to suffer the effects of sin. Then, being 

warned by his own experience and by the fortunate thoughtfulness of 

an intelligent friend who surmised his condition and told him 

faithfully of the terrible results of the vile habit, he made a manly 

effort to reform and claimed to have wholly broken the habit. To his 

great grief he found, however, that the years in which he had devoted 

himself to sin had wrought sad havoc in his system. In many ways his 

health was greatly deranged and his once powerful constitution was 

broken down. The sexual organs themselves were greatly diseased, so 

much so that a serious and painful surgical operation was necessary. 

With shame and mortification he looked upon his past life and saw what 

a hideous work of evil he had wrought. His vileness stood out before 

him in a vivid light, and he felt ashamed to meet the gaze of his fellows. 

 

After performing the necessary surgical operation upon this poor 

unfortunate, we dealt faithfully with him, pointing out to him the way 

by which he might with proper effort in some degree redeem himself by 

a life-long struggle against every form of impurity. He felt, and 

rightly, that the task was a most severe one. He well knew that the 

stamp of sin was on his countenance, and in his mind. Thoughts long 

allowed to run upon vile subjects, forming filthy pictures in the 

imagination, are not easily brought back to the channel of purity and 

virtue. The mind that has learned to love to riot in impure dreams, 

does not readily acquire a love for the opposite. But he determined 

to make a brave and earnest effort, and we have every reason to believe 

that he has, in a measure at least, succeeded. But, if so, he has made 

a narrow escape. A few more years of sin, and his rescue would have 

been impossible; both mind and body would have been sunk so deep in 

the mire of concupiscence that none but Almighty power could have saved 

him from utter destruction. Thousands of boys and young men are to-day 

standing on the slippery brink of that awful precipice from which but 

very few are snatched away. Soon they will plunge headlong over into 

the abyss of debasement and corruption from whence they will never 

escape. Oh that we had the power to reach each one of these unfortunate 

youth before it is too late, and to utter in their ears such warnings, 

to portray before them such pictures of the sure results of a course 

of sin, that they might be turned back to the paths of chastity and 

virtue before they have become such mental, moral, and physical wrecks 

as we every day encounter in the walks of life. But not one in a thousand 

can be reached when they have gone so far in sin. When they have ventured 

once, they can rarely be checked in their downward course until great
