* Earth is the battle field where good must combat with evil."

M. F. TUPPER.

Onward I onward! Time is fleeting,

Hours are swift, and years are few;
Life and death are ever meeting;
Countless foes our steps pursue.

Onward! onward !
There is much for all to do.

Onward! Let not toil and trouble

Mar the joys of heart and home;
Life is not a bursting bubble,
Earth is not a peopled tomb.

Onward ! onward !
Brighter hours are yet to come.

Time exists but in the present;

Strive to do thy work to-day,
Midnight's moon may lift its crescent
O'er thy form of lifeless clay.

Onward I onward!
Death's swift shaft no power can stay.

Seek not thou the victor's glory:

O'er his laurels toar-drops start,
War engraves a mournful story
On the homeless orphan's heart.

Onward l onward!
Thou canst bear a nobler part.

Sheathe thy sword, and furl thy banner,

Let thy days with peace be rife,
Not in tumult, war and anger,
Win the victory of life.

Onward! onward !
Be thy watchword in the strife.
