THE REAL HONOURS. THE PARTY TINSEL AND THE SOLDIER'S REWARD. I a.m very glad to see that some of my friends who have been waiting out in the cold a long time—more or less since 1905— ha.ve at last obtained suitable recognition of their great services—whether to themselves j or their patrons; but I mmt sa.y th.at the grapes never lookad to me so sour as on this occasion, says a writt- a in "Tmth" on the New Year honours. There has been appearing daily for a long time past a very different kind of "Roll of Honour"—one that rath. takes the shine ,vt of stars and garters. Some five hundred thousand of our countrymen have died or bled for us; three million more are offering to share their fata. What sort of decorations has the Fountain of Honour in store for them ? A l'üngh cross on a grave beside a foreign battlefield, a wooden leg or a pair of crutches to stump about on for life. The rntn who has served his ;>a,rty with his vote or his purse, the man who has elbowed his way to the top of the professional tree, the physician who has had the hick to doctor a great man, even the musician who has successfully conducted an opera, what are they worth in the world to-day? To see them sucking the rare and refresh ing fruit for which they have striven, or paid, or in- trigued, isn't :t enough to make one's fstomach aohe ?
