YOUNO MEN who have injured themselves by a certain practice indulged in when alone?a habit frequently learnecL from evil companions, or at school, the effects of which are nightly felt, even when asleep, and, if not cured, renders marriage impossible, and de stroys both mind and body, should apply immedi ately.
