feelings should be tolerated. Purity of heart and life should be 

maintained. The husband should do his part by supplying favorable 

surroundings, suggesting cheerful thoughts, and aiding mental culture. 

 

3. After birth, the mother still possesses a molding influence upon 

the development of her child through the lacteal secretion. Every 

mother knows how speedily the child will suffer if nursed when she is 

exhausted by physical labor or when suffering from nervous excitement, 

as anger or grief. These facts show the influence which the mental 

states of the mother exert upon the child even when the act of nursing 

is the only physical bond between them. 

 

It would be a happy day for the race which should witness the recognition 

of the fact that infants, even human beings in embryo, possess rights 

which are as sacred as those of adult human beings. 

 

Circumcision.--The fold of integument called the prepuce, which has 

been previously described, has upon its inner surface a large number 

of glands which produce a peculiar secretion. Under certain 

circumstances, and from inattention to personal cleanliness, this 

secretion may accumulate, and then often becomes the cause of 

irritation and serious disease. To prevent such disorders, and to 

insure cleanliness, the Jewish law required the removal of the prepuce, 

which constituted the rite of circumcision. The same practice is 

followed by several modern nations dwelling in tropical climates; and 

it can scarcely be doubted that it is a very salutary one, and has 

contributed very materially to the maintenance of that proverbial 

national health for which the Jews are celebrated. Eminent physicians 

have expressed the opinion that the practice would be a salutary one 

for all men. The maintenance of scrupulous cleanliness, by daily 

cleansing, is at least an imperative duty. 

 

In some countries, females are also circumcised by removal of the 

nymphae. The object is the same as that of circumcision in the male. 

The same evils result from inattention to local cleanliness, and the 

same measure of prevention, daily cleansing, is necessitated by a 

similar secretion. Local cleanliness is greatly neglected by both sexes. 

Daily washing should begin with infancy and continue through life, and 

will prevent much disease. 

 

Castration.--This operation consists in the removal of the testes of 

the male. It does not at once obliterate the sexual sense, especially 

if performed after puberty, but of course renders the individual 

impotent, or incapable of reproduction. Persons upon whom it has been 

performed are called eunuchs. It was a very common custom in ancient 

times, being usually prompted by the jealousy of rulers, who allowed 

no males but eunuchs to associate with their wives and concubines. The 

effect upon the male is to render him effeminate in appearance and weak 

in mind. If performed before puberty, the growth of the beard is scanty, 

and the voice never acquires that deepness of tone natural to the 

masculine voice.
