D. 1905. Frederick J. Combe, Mayor of the city of Browns villle. Attest: F. Champion, Secretary . Young Man! San Antonio Express. Deliberately insult the man who starts to tell a smutty story in your presence by turning on your heel. Such a corruptionist has no more right to steal your pure thought than to put his hand into your pockets and take your money. The retailers of filth are whiter! sepulchers clean on the outside but inwardly filled with dead men's bones. They are debauchers 0 clean minds, robbers of purity. You should never permit your self to listen to an improper ston a story you would not care to re peat to your mother or your sister The filthy suggestiveness willsotu into your memory as spilled in, soaks into blotting paper. Allow no man to drag your min 1 through a sewer Do you know, there is many a man would sacrifice much to li able to wipe from his memory son-" of the things he listened to whv , a boy. The man who will deliberate! repeat a risque story in the prts ence of a youth deserves no r spect- He is an incarnate devil i meanness. He is daubing a coar picture on clean walls. No gentleman will tell a stop, he could not tell in the present of ladies. Do you remember what Ge. Grant said to the officer who begv. telling a story, remarking, "TliOfr are no ladies present," whereupcv the silent soldier retorted, "Then are gentlemen present." Keep your mind unsullied. A foul suggestion may harden into habit of thought that will lead :. far astray. Keep clean inside. It is matter of more importance that you should keep the dirt r T your soul than to keep it off yo: clothes. Subscribe to The Herald.
