THE INTERMOUNTAIN CATHOLIC 16TH JULY, 1904

Better to be a crystal and be broken

Than dull clay like a tile upon the roof;

Better to put thy courage, doubtful-hearted,

Unto the proof.

O in success there often lurks a failure

That feeds upon the soul in hidden shame.

And in defeat there sometimes rests a triumph

Greater than fame.
