the presence of ladies or where their
remnant of decency compels them to
guard their speech.
Many men who make no preten-
tions of religion have a well developed
sense of decency ond abhor profane
and vulgar speech, and any man who
gives serious thought to the matter
will train his mind to employ a mode
of expression that can be used with-
out shame in any company.
Profanity is gaining a stronghold
on the boys of today and it is not
uncommon to hear little fellows ten
to twelve years old "cursing Jike
troopers." They hear the men revel-
ing in foul language and think it
sounds big to talk like men. It is
the most senseless and most useless
habit a man ever formed and is a
curse to all who come in contact
with such a man.
