THE VANQUISHED.

Hero's to the men who lose I What though their work be e'er so nobly planned, And watched with zealous care, glorious halo crowns thinr efforts grand, Contempt is failure's share. Here's to the men who lose! If triumph's easy smile our struggles gleet Courage is easy then; The king is he who after fierce defeat' Can up and fight again.

Here's to the men who lose! The ready plaudits of a fawning world. King sweet in victors' ears; The vanquisher's banners never are unfurled For them there sounds no cheers. ' Here's to the men who lose • The touchstone of true worth is not'suecess; There is a higher test- - Though fate may darkly frown, onward to press . And bravely do one's best. •

,-■. . Here's to the men who lose! It is the vanquished' 3 praises that I sing, And this the toast I choose: 'A hard fought failure is a noble thing, ~. Here s luck to them who lose !" ■ -■-' George hj. Broadhurst.
