rave men and women exhibit the highest and noblest qualities of human he world is full of heroism before which ic frenzied madness of the warrior in arms but foolish child's play There are and and triumphs r There are laurels whoso loom is greener and more enduring than ie brightest by smoking blades f steel The may defy the storut as it towers over the flood and land proudly the result of human hands ut its very base rests upon an bly grandeur and rests on enduring com- of unwearied toil There is a madness in the hour of battle here is a fearful fascination in the pomp nd circumstance of war The pulse of he masses leaps responsive to the dancing f the plume or rises and falls with the measured blood courses with the plunging charger There s in the rustle of a ners and the feelings go up as it lifs and ars upon the wind Men love to die in lot fever of battle There is music in the bunder of and the ringing of tile There is a false glare upon the steel crested columns which go surging and by Even in death tbe hand convulsively clutches the broken brand and the inking life-tide from the haltered trunk as the bugles sound another charge There is a smile upon the features as the eyo last catches rises and lingers ike a pall over slain Tho field where tho brave die becomes a sacred in the history of fame A nation awards funeral honors to tho fallen and countrymen grateful and proud com- in rumble the daring of the tier and annually the peal of cannon to froth remembrance the memory of he dead It ia sweet to die fur one's But there are those mere truly jrave whose heroism is never known to aine The world seems them hem them not There are no to cheer No shaft is ever ed to their toils There whole life is a fierce hand-to-hand con- with enemies more to be dreaded than squadrons From se until ts eetting as years wear away the muscles are coin d into bread for waiting months Cho world pives him no thought It cares not for the long struggle He is but a on the stream and goes down ed And yet he has wrestled with destiny atone under a burning sun from day to day or at night dreaming fitfully of the strife of the morrow The is a skeleton at tho hearth Poverty is there It sits grimly one in the circle When the weary ai in falters and the stout heart it goads almost to madness in the peal for bread Upturned faces watch he toiler through the day and flit in the of the night it tuny be that stands just over thu smiling fiendishly as a few mouths disease swallow up the scanty surplus of few daj s labor There are easel now in mind where been a illustration of the heroism The children of the are real We know of needles which kept Want at bay and coin bread from day today for many a mouth These toilers march through to life's ending to the stern music of labor The boldest warrior of the field would shrink from such a contest and against such odds But lot none despair because the applauds not No matter if no of marlte shall lift sculptured to their memories They can battle faithfully to the cad and leave to their children f legacy worth more than the warrior's fame When tbe laurels which the steel has ered in the blood shall wither in the sun
