DEDICATION.

To my Mother, and all other Good Mothers:

Knowing that the mutual chief object of the lives of all true mothers is, as it always was and always will be, the improvement of the human family, and believing that a concentration of attention--which is bound to come about sooner or later--on certain evils which exist among the supposed better classes in our large cities, would result in a decided improvement, I beg to dedicate to you these pages as a testimonial of appreciation of what the better half of enlightened mankind would like to do for society.

W. H. CHAMBLISS.

NEW YORK, April 14, 1895.
