Women Growing Cautious

From the St. Louis Globe-Democrat
The effect of the Whitechapel murders will be to render the promenading of the streets of large cities late at night by women of a certain sort less safe and less common. That some good may thus come out of this horribly ghoulish affair is possible, as out of all other horrors and evils. Civilization is enduring a phase of barbarism in tolerating this public advertisement of shame, but so far has been unable to permanently check it or to prevent it. It is more than probable that when the fiend or fiends are discovered they will be found to be of the class that has become maniacal and irresponsible by vulgar abuse and shameless habits. Exactly what power higher civilization can exercise to prevent moral waste is yet to be determined. But, plainly, we have not yet reached a finality in the morals of our higher civilization.
