"TEKEL." You clanked the keen sabre and snorted for war ; You sounded the loud bugle call; You set in fell onslaught your Juggernaut car— But the writing is there on the trail! You vaunted battalions—aye, these were your god, Before whom all Europe must fall ; But. the flower of your host now bestrews the dr.mched. sod— And the writing is there on the wall!

A, Salmond iu the 'Scotsman.'
