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.
