They wiU be more formal merely in the mac- tee-* of the resumption of modified ecbednles with our old competitors.

He claims that all persons must agree that accidents may in one disasr trons moment sweep away the worlc^of years, destroying health, happiness, Even life Itself; bnt, of course, this is. a fact of.possibility, 'not of greatest] probability. In all ordinary conditions I he believes that the race is to the swift 'and the battle to the strong.
