Thus tho black lotterlng of the roll of honor seems lo lingo old ricojlectlons and now liopns. Tho woild sConiSiSad and au-.utKi: like tho dark of tho poet's suniiiii-r dawn and full of haunting memniiis of doom like some VlrglUan phriK;e. But this peaBlrolsni of Uwelling either on the .deilghtB or Horrows ot tho past Is not the busiii'mi of a wiillo man. It becomes nelth(r Uio nuAc, tho Christian, nor tho patrioi. The individual passes, but Rome is otcrnai, and the race goes on. We Iihvo to tnke up the now life as we find ii and In fact wo are doing so. After all, much of the old life was rotten wood well cut ii way by the axe ot war-liberty run rioi und torge'.tul of disclplino; wealth lioyond, the droams of avatlce ami poverty stunting, not forcing growUi. Our politics were becoming the unn-al ochoea of Issues that had*'once b(;en great. Our religion was withering in an atmosphere where death did not tlion, as now, wiilk dally by us, ,ind seemed almost a thing which mlKlit ho controlled by the county coiincll. Our Empire was so effortlo.';-- nnd assured that,wo hardly took tlio irouhU; to develop it, our ease inul security so great that the grave thinRs seemed trivial and the trivial vj:wn, and both our lives and our litur:U!iry hovered on the verge of decarii'iue. Then came a' cold and terrible lilas^ from over the North Sea. Our nxiro.sconces and fallals fell from na and v.u .stood up nnketl to show what kind of men we were. And wo were not fouud want-lug. Shadows of tho Past. Will this change iasi? .^fler' two years of war my gin'ss would liavo beeni "No. The phase will iiass; the reaction to our old habits ot body and mind will be ail the more violent for tho passing Interlude of reprea-slon." Now the new iraine of mind has passed into tho very essence of our being, and our -ubi.ouseiousness is attuned to the alicred eonditlonfi. This is proved by the very unreality which seems to clins to our pre-war exi.-,l.ence, for. it shows tliut the present is more real-tlian llie past. Today the ordinary ninii hardy notices the hard conditions of life, for they have become things of u-ie and wont. It is as well, [or liviiiK will never be in our gencrallbn the happy, somewhat careless thing it was. The lax-gatherer aldiift will see to this, tor the wealth of the world is being shot away by guns, and llio debt has to ha paid. Is :thc change for (lie uetter? Tlio anow'er depends on ilie ideal ot life which man sets Iwlare him. If-tho end ot man is to acquire, to. enjoy, to save or to squander Uie nijaierial goods of tho world op an onornious scale, until our eqrs are pierced,.as Disraeli said, "by the wail of intolerable serfage" from the failures in the race of iic-quifiltion, then tho change is for the worso. Material has been spent on guns which nii.sht have been spent on position and luxury. II might equally, soni'! will say. have been spent on social reform, tiul would it? That is not tho rule of the Venetian commercial republics tliose great industrial comatunilies wliicii from Tyre to London and Wasliiiigton' have at one time or another dazzled the world. Nearar to Nature. ' If Ihe aini- of man is lite In a fuller sense than can be attained by a lavish expenditure of cash, then the change VviU be for the better, and social con-ditjons no less than moral values will gain, not lose, from that change. The Roman ideal of lite-and there was much In it-was to live In accordance with nature. The war has brought us nearer to the realization of this Idea. Tho false idols of the nineteenth century have fallen down because they had feet of clay. Wealth and manufacturers are not the be-all and end-all of a nation's exlsteuce. No people can neglect the sane and healthy life of the land. An army is not a small gang of aristocratic loafers and hired scuni, but the concrete sign of that noble notion that no man Is worthy of liberty who cannot or will not defend it with the sv.'ord. All these things ,men know to-day not as theories, but as facts. Women have conio to their own by the same stern logic ot need, and not na tho result ot a bitter and protracted etrug-gle for abatract and unprovable rights. Class hatreds have broken down In the comradeship of the trenches and under the urgent neceasltles. ot the workshop. Old party prejudices and shibboleths are diaaolvlng like the rising mtsts at dawn. All this war has brought, and ours will be tho blame If new opportunities bring In their train no worthy achlovements. SOCIALIST LEADER.
