THE SURRENDER OF WOMAN.
by R. A. ADAMS
(For the Literary Service Bureau)
The saddest feature of the rapid
moral decadence of this age, and its
strongest contributing factor, is the
abject surrender of womanhood to the
elements and agencies which are seek
ing the destruction of our civilization.
Made better than man. endowed with
finer sensibilities, blessed with gifts
and graces not possessed by man,—
woman was destined to be the saviour
of men, both m the aggregate and the
individual sense. But, in making sur
render woman has almost destroyed
her influence for good.
In fashions, woman has surrendered
her modesty, the shield for virtue;
smoking and drinking, she has pros,
tituted her finer qualities and done to
herself permanent injury; in sex lax.
ness she has offered her womanhood
on the altar of foolish pride and car
nal pleasure. And in rejecting mother
hood and home maker, thousands of
women have surrendered woman’s
choicest gift, pushing from them their
greatest opportunity to change the
whole current of human behavior and
save the human race from self-des
It is sad to note that of this sur
render woman is not ashamed. Rath
er she boasts and calls it her emanci
pation—her new freedom. She exults
ir. Bohemian conduct and bacchanal
ian orgies. But womanhood is decad
ent. Continued, it will soon sink to a
new depth of ethical degeneracy, and
will drag down into the mire, the en
tire human race.
