The young man must submit to the discipline of a fanatical women's organization dedicated to the suppression of onanism and the reformation of the male gender. Archie finds himself under the control of the beautiful but despotic Miss Harper, who intends to train him to control his desires, urges and habits.

he struggles with temperance & finds his way out
yes. The emotional tone of the dialog gave me the feel of a Dickinsonian Brittain.
Archie Duntisbourne - he has the personality of a bullish but idle dilettante. Archie demands explanations from others in defiance, but he succumbs when he gets paid to do what they want.
Miss Harper - because the narrator captures her mannerisms
It made me laugh a little at how Archie, a seemingly man of the world, is quite naive about the opposite sex
this is a pleasant little story how a naive guy succumbs to the whims of women competing against each other
