INDEX

with most intense regret to the early days of childhood, and earnestly 

wish that the pictures then made in the mind by bad books might be 

effaced. Evil impressions thus formed often torture minds during a 

whole lifetime. In the most inopportune moments they will intrude 

themselves. When the individual desires to place his mind undividedly 

upon sacred and elevated themes, even at the most solemn moments of 

life, these lewd pictures will sometimes intrude themselves in spite 

of his efforts to avoid them. It is an awful thing to allow the mind 

to be thus contaminated; and many a man would give the world, if he 

possessed it, to be free from the horrible incubus of a defiled 

imagination. 

 

Vile Pictures.--Obscene and lascivious pictures are influences which 

lead boys astray too important to be unnoticed. Evil men, agents of 

the arch-fiend, have adopted all sorts of devices for putting into the 

hands of the boys and youths of the rising generation pictures 

calculated to excite the passions, to lead to vice. Thousands of these 

vile pictures are in circulation throughout the country in spite of 

the worthy efforts of such philanthropists as Mr. Anthony Comstock and 

his co-laborers. In almost every large school there are boys who have 

a supply of these infamous designs and act as agents in scattering the 

evil contagion among all who come under their influence. 

 

Under the guise of art, the genius of some of our finest artists is 

turned to pandering to this base desire for sensuous gratification. 

The pictures which hang in many of our art galleries that are visited 

by old and young of both sexes often number in the list views which 

to those whose thoughts are not well trained to rigid chastity can be 

only means of evil. A plea may be made for these paintings in the name 

of art; but we see no necessity for the development of art in this 

particular direction, when nature presents so many and such varied 

scenes of loveliness in landscapes, flowers, beautiful birds, and 

graceful animals, to say nothing of the human form protected by 

sufficient covering to satisfy the demands of modesty. 

 

Many of the papers and magazines sold at our news-stands and eagerly 

sought after by young men and boys are better suited for the parlors 

of a house of ill-repute than for the eyes of pure-minded youth. A 

news-dealer who will distribute such vile sheets ought to be dealt with 

as an educator in vice and crime, an agent of evil, and a recruiting 

officer for hell and perdition. 

 

Evil Thoughts.--No one can succeed long in keeping himself from vicious 

acts whose thoughts dwell upon unchaste subjects. Only those who are 

pure in heart will be pure and chaste in action. The mind must be 

educated to love and dwell upon pure subjects in early life, as by this 

means only can the foundation be laid for that purity of character which 

alone will insure purity of life. When the mind once becomes 

contaminated with evil thoughts, it requires the work of years of 

earnest effort to purge it from uncleanness. Vile thoughts leave scars
