~~ J. B. HALTIWANDER,
The great evil of the day
in our large cities is worldli
ness, the indulgence in what
is popularly called amuse
ments. Gradually, yet stea
dily and insidiously, this 20th
century curse is gaining
ground in our smaller towns
and villages till great numbers
of our most beautiful and cul
tured voung women and no
blest specimens of young
manhood have fallen a vic
tim ::o these enticing snares.
Instead of consecrating their
youthful energies and bright,
well-sharpened intellects to
the Christian progress of the
world they are utilizing these
gifts of life's morning for the
glory of the "Prince of Dark

thirst for earthly gaieties is fast
making ot them a race of but

The dance hall and the vi
tiated tastes resulting there
from, have made puppets and
nonenties of many attractive
and promising young men
and women. Even the chil
dren of Edgefield, a number
of them not more than twelve
years old, are in the habit of
meeting from place to place,
to enjoy a dance of their own,
and have become so fascinat
ed thereby that no entertain
ment, however attractive,
gives them satisfaction unless
the dance feature is attached.
As the children and young
people of a community should
be thc care of .ill its citizens,
it is time that the sober mind
ed parents and^ citizens, were
beginning to open their eyes
to the perils of the situation.
