play upon the streets. It is astonishing how early children, especially 

boys, will sometimes learn the hideous, shameless tricks of vice which 

yearly lead thousands down to everlasting death. Often children begin 

their course of sin while yet cradled in their mother's arms, thus early 

taught by some vile nurse. Boys that fight and swear, that play upon 

the streets and disobey their parents, may be wisely shunned as unfit 

for associates. In many instances, too, boys whose conduct is in other 

respects wholly faultless sometimes indulge in vice, ignorant of its 

real nature and consequences. At the first intimation of evil on the 

part of a companion, a boy who is yet pure should flee away as from 

a deadly serpent or a voracious beast. Do not let the desire to gratify 

a craving curiosity deter you from fleeing at once from the source of 

contamination. Under such circumstances do not hesitate a moment to 

escape from danger. If an evil word is spoken or an indecent act of 

any sort indulged in by a companion, cut the acquaintance of such a 

boy at once. Never allow yourself to be alone with him a moment. On 

no account be induced to associate with him. He will as surely soil 

and besmear with sin your moral garments as would contact with the most 

filthy object imaginable your outer garments. 

 

It were better for a boy never to see or associate with a lad of his 

own age than to run any risk of being corrupted before he is old enough 

to appreciate the terrible enormity of sin and the awful consequences 

of transgression. It should be recollected also that not only young 

boys but vicious youths and young men are frequently the instructors 

in vice. It is unsafe to trust any but those who are known to be pure. 

 

Bad Language.--We have often been astonished at the facility with which 

children acquire the language of vice. Often we have been astounded 

to hear little boys scarcely out of their cradles, lisping the most 

horrible oaths and the vilest epithets. The streets and alleys in our 

large cities, and in smaller ones too in a less degree, are nurseries 

of vice, in which are reared the criminals that fill our jails, prisons, 

work-houses, school-ships, and houses of correction. Many a lad begins 

his criminal education by learning the language of vice and sin. At 

first he simply imitates the evil utterances of others; but soon he 

learns the full significance of the obscene and filthy language which 

he hears and repeats, and then he rapidly progresses in the downward 

road. 

 

A boy that indulges in the use of foul language will not long be chaste 

in acts. It is a safe rule to be followed by those who wish to grow 

up pure and unsullied by sin, untainted by vice, that those who use 

bad language are persons to avoid, to keep away from. Even those who 

are well fortified against vice, who have been faithfully warned of 

its consequences and fully appreciate its dangers, cannot be safely 

trusted to associate with vile talkers. The use of bad language by old 

and young is an evil which is of the very greatest moment. It is too
