INDEX

His countenance was blank and expressionless except at rare intervals. 

His lips were always parted, and the saliva ran from the corners of 

his mouth down upon his clothing. The calls of nature were responded 

to involuntarily, soiling constantly his clothing and bedding in a most 

disgusting manner, and requiring the constant attention of a nurse to 

keep him in anything like a wholesome condition. 

 

We did what we could to relieve this poor victim of unhallowed lust, 

but soon became convinced that no human arm could save from utter ruin 

this self-destroyed soul. At our suggestion the young man was removed 

to be placed in an institution devoted to the care of imbeciles and 

lunatics. The last we heard of the poor fellow he was still sinking 

into lower depths of physical and mental degradation,--a soul utterly 

lost and ruined. How many thousands of young men who might have been 

useful members of society, lawyers, clergymen, statesmen, scientists, 

have thus sunk into the foul depths of the quagmire of vice, to rise 

no more forever! Oh, awful fate! The human eye never rests upon a sadder 

sight than a ruined soul, a mind shattered and debased by vice. 

 

The Results of One Transgression.--The following case is a good 

illustration of the fact that a long course of transgression is not 

necessary to occasion the most serious results. A young man from an 

Eastern State who visited us for treatment was suffering with the usual 

consequences of self-abuse, but he asserted in the most emphatic manner 

that he had never committed the act of self-pollution but once in his 

life. He had, however, after that one vile act, allowed his mind to 

run upon vile thoughts, giving loose rein to his imagination, and in 

consequence he found himself as badly off, suffering with the very same 

disorders, as those who had practiced the vice for some time. 

 

Not the slightest dallying with sin is safe. The maintenance of perfect 

purity and chastity of body and mind is the only right and safe course. 

By a few months' treatment the young man recovered his health in a great 

measure, and, marrying an estimable young lady, settled down happily 

in life. Many tears of remorse and repentance did he shed over that 

one sinful act, and bitterly did he reproach the evil companion who 

taught him to sin; but he was fortunate enough to escape without 

suffering the worst effects of sin, and is now living happily. 

 

A Hospital Case.--One of the most wretched creatures we ever saw among 

the many sufferers from sexual excesses whom we have met, was a man 

of about thirty years of age whom we found in the large Charity Hospital 

on Blackwell's Island, New York City. In consequence of long indulgence 

in the soul-and-body destroying habit, he had brought upon himself not 

only the most serious and painful disease of the sexual organs 

themselves, but disease of the bladder and other adjacent organs. He 

was under severe and painful treatment for a long time without benefit, 

and finally a surgical operation was performed, but with the result
