HEROISM is the lost chord, the mission note of present-day Christianity! Every true soldier is a hero. A soldier withouth heroism is a CHOCOLATE SOLDIER. Who has not been stirred to scorn and mirth at the very though of a Chocolate Soldier? In peace, true soldiers are captive lions, fretting in their cages. War gives them their liberty and sends them, like boys bounding out of school to obtain their heart's desire or perish in the attempt. Battle is the soldier's vital breath! Peace turns him into a stooping asthmatic. War makes him a whole man again, and gives him the heart, strength, and vigor of a hero. Every TRUE CHRISTIAN IS A SOLDER OF CHRIST -- a hero "par excellence"! Braver than the bravest, scorning the soft seductions of peace and her oft-repeated warnings against hardship, deisease, danger, and death, whom he counts among his bosom friends. The otherwise Christian is a Chocolate Christian! Dissolving in water and melting at the smell of fire. "Sweeties" they are! Bonbons, lollipops! Living their lives on a glass dish or in a cardboard box, each clad in his soft cloth, a little frilled white paper to preserve his dear little delicate constitution.
