A Mind Dethroned.--A young lady who had received every advantage which 

could be given her by indulgent parents, and who naturally possessed 

most excellent talents, being a fine musician, and naturally so bright 

and witty as to be the life of every company in which she moved, suddenly 

began to show strange symptoms of mental unsoundness. She would 

sometimes be seized with fits of violence during which it was with great 

difficulty that she could be controlled. Several times she threatened 

the lives of her nurses, and even on one occasion attempted to execute 

her threat, the person's life being saved by mere accident. Everything 

was done for her that could be done, but the mania increased to such 

a degree of violence that she was sent to an asylum for the insane. 

Here she remained for months before she became sufficiently tractable 

to be taken to her home and cared for by friends. Too close application 

to study was the cause at first assigned for her mental disorder, but 

a careful investigation of the case revealed the fact that the terrible 

sin which has ruined the minds of so many promising young men and 

brilliant young women was the cause that led to the sad result in this 

case also. The punishment of sin, especially of sexual sins, is indeed 

terrible; but the sin is a fearful one, and the penalty must be equal 

to the enormity of the crime. Not all young women who indulge thus will 

become insane, but any one who thus transgresses may be thus punished. 

There is no safety but in absolute purity. 

 

A Penitent Victim.--A young woman who had been ill for years, and whose 

physicians had sought in vain to cure her various ailments, until her 

parents almost despaired of her ever being anything but a helpless 

invalid, came to us for treatment, resolved upon making a last effort 

for health. She had grown up in utter ignorance of the laws of health 

and of the results of the vice of which we are writing; and having been 

early taught the sin, she had indulged it for a number of years with 

the result of producing a most terribly diseased condition of the sexual 

organs, which had baffled the skill of all the physicians who had 

attended her, none of whom had ever been made acquainted with the true 

cause of the difficulties. When apprized of the real facts in the case, 

that she was alone responsible for the sad condition into which she 

had fallen, her eyes were opened to see the wickedness and vileness 

of her course. She bitterly bemoaned her past life, and heartily 

repented of her sins. Of the sincerity of her repentance she gave 

evidence in the earnest efforts which she put forth to help herself. 

She spared no pains to do well all required on her part, and was soon 

rewarded by feeling that her diseases were being removed and health 

was returning. Still, she was constantly reminded of her former sins. 

When the will was off its guard, during sleep, the mind, long indulged 

in sin, would revert to the old channels and riot in vileness. Unchaste 

dreams made her often dread to sleep, as she awoke from these 

unconscious lapses enervated, weak, and prostrated as though she had
