uncontrolled, leaving her, upon awaking, exhausted, enervated, and 

almost desperate with chagrin. Knowing that she was daily suffering 

for her transgressions, she was filled with remorse and regret, and 

would have given all to undo the past; but, alas! she could not, and 

could only suffer with patience until relief could be secured. Her love 

for sentimental literature occasioned another battle for her to fight; 

for she could scarcely resist the temptation daily offered her to while 

away some of the weary hours with such stories of love and sentiment 

as she had been accustomed to enjoy. But she fought the battle earnestly, 

and finally succeeded in conquering the evil tendencies of her mind 

both while awake and when asleep; and from that time she began to make 

slow progress toward recovery. The last we saw of her she was doing 

well, and hoped in time to arrive at a very comfortable state of health. 

 

A Desperate Case.--A little girl about ten years of age was brought 

to us by her father, who came with his daughter to have her broken of 

the vile habit of self-abuse into which she had fallen, having been 

taught it by a German servant girl. Having read an early copy of this 

work, the father had speedily detected the habit, and had adopted every 

measure which he could devise to break his child of the destructive 

vice which she had acquired, but in vain. After applying various other 

measures without success, it finally became necessary to resort to a 

surgical operation, by which it is hoped that she was permanently cured, 

as we have heard nothing to the contrary since, and as the remedy seemed 

to be effectual. It was a severe remedy, and may seem a harsh one, but 

every other means utterly failed, and the father insisted upon the 

performance of the operation as a trial. This little girl, naturally 

truthful and honest, had, through the influence of this blighting vice, 

been made crafty and deceptive. She would tell the most astonishing 

falsehoods to free herself from the charge of guilt or to avoid 

punishment. The gentleman, her father, felt so deeply upon the subject 

and was so thoroughly awake to the consequences of the sin, that he 

declared he would take his daughter away into the wilderness and leave 

her to die, if need be, rather than allow her to grow up to womanhood 

with this vile blight upon her, and run the risk of her contaminating 

with the same vice his other, younger children. He felt so deeply that 

the tears coursed down his cheeks as he talked, and we were most happy 

to be of service to him in aiding his daughter to overcome the 

fascinating vice. She seemed willing to try to help herself, but was 

unable to break the bonds of sin without the extraordinary help which 

she received. 

 

We might continue this rehearsal of cases to an almost indefinite length, 

but we must soon bring this chapter to a close. Those described are 

only a few examples of the many we are constantly meeting. None have 

been overdrawn; much has been omitted for the sake of delicacy which 

the exposure of the whole truth would have required us to present. We
