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 truction. 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. -CLASSIFIED ADS 2S.1S Hamilton.—12 Rooms.
