CALL OF THE COLORS

Men of England! Sons of "Empire! Manhood calls you on to-day. Where the battle flags are waving, Where the foeman bars Hie way. Will you pass the call of duty. Shall our royal standards yield— Where our fathers fought before us, Camping on the battlefield? Let the blood of heroes stir you— Drop the plough and break the pen. Sterner duty lies before you—jMcther England asks for Men. ''Round the world the flag is calling, In its wake tho bugles peal— Shall the Sons of Britain falter? Answer with the flush of steel! When the first front ranks are broken, Keating back the Teuton horde, Let our country find us waiting— Standing with an unsheathed sword. Swings our line along the trenches - Ones -again the guns axe manned— Prhice and noble, priest and peasant. Fighting tor the Mother Land! Loving arms shall cling around you, Little nilgais hold yon fastStronger bonds than those have claimed you. For the Colors call at last. Gentle hearts arc bravely fighting Battles men shalt never knowWives and Mothers of the Umpire. England needs him! Lei Turn go. —George L. Car.thew, in the Parupa (U..5.) ' Tribune.'
