The generals and the admirals
(et the epaulets and pratine;
The world's npplaiiso with loud huzzus
That keep their fame ablaze.
The colonels and tho captains too
Bank in tho brilliant light,
While every one who wielded gnn
If praised "clear out of sight."
But few there are who sing the praiss
Of feminine relief:
They hold their cheers and save their j
For soldier boys and chiefs.
But I will sing the praise of those
Who bore these gallant youth,
Who held the reins and Ktetred their
Along the paths of truth.
Who stood behind those ndble men
With ever throbbing heart'
Who kept the light of home fires
And shirked no helpful part.
Whose love and counsel, through it all,
Kept strong the grsnd morale.
The la'-k of which, liki broken stitch,
Would spell no word but "fail."
A mcstage snt by ma or wife,
Or bv a sweetheart dear,
Will dull the smart and brave the
And fill the soul with cheer.
The soldier with no girl behind
Is dead upon his feet.
He has no tjnir his soul to stir;
No loving heart to greet.
His weapon hang lcose In his hands;
His helmet tires his brain;
War is a drudge; he fears to budge;
In victory sees no gain.
Hut when he feels ths gentle ftiuch.
Of woman 's loving hand,
lie swenr he '11 serve without reserve
And fight fur mitivo laud.
'Tis not tho great things of this eailh,
The powerful and strong,
That builds, alone, tho mighty throne
That moves the world along.
The glistening tear in woman's eye;
The smile of prattling babe,
May float a bark liko iNonh's Ark,
Or clear a world of shade.
That flod should rulo through man
Was once tho firm belief,
Hut now we know it is not so
"lTll woman adds relief.
Oh, could we only heed the good
These helping hands have done,
.twjug this line, we should combine
And praise, them every one.
So, now, dear hearts keep up your wink
Although 4t may be hard;
Though scant applause may greet your
Yet faith brings rich reward.
