Street Temptations. '
There are parents who were
shocked by the recent revelation
of vices in London, and yet who
are unconscious of the fact that
they ate permitting their own chil
dren to be exposed to the same
temptations that brought the youth
of London to ruin, Ip every city
in this country itis usual to findlthe
streets erowded in the evening with
young people--boys'"and girls--.
who are treading dangerous paths.
Any evening you will find boys at
the corners or lounging by doors of
saloons listening to the ribald talk
of those inside. These boys are in
the nursery of crime. T'he ranks of
criminals are' being constantly re=
cruited from this class, They grdw
with marvelous rapidity.. Gitls in
their teens are also found on the
streets. 'You see them .going up
and down or loitering on the cor.
ners by twos nd' 'threes;. girls of
respectable liarentage, who per
haps have their mother's cotlsent to
walk out awhile, not knowing that
frequently by their actionst these
young daughters are:encouring the
familiar attentions of those scaven
gers of the devil, the male flirts,
whose notice has so often',bben the
forerunner of moral Edegradition.
Whenever a girl chates. at the love
guard which a mother's anifety
throws about her, she has started
on the downward course, the end of
which is a blasted home, a mother's
heart broken and a father's head
bowed in shame. If fathers and
mothers wish 'to save their dillden
they, must make their homes ~lhpy
for the boys and girls,. *lt them,
and thus keep them' ' the
