Two Great Soldiers. Lord .Roberts was in unuiy re spects quito unliko Wellington, England's other great soldier, tlio Iron Duke. Hoberts was o£ a simpler, sweetor - nature and bad less of iron in his composition, yet the points of agreement between the two great soldiers are more striking than over. He was a great soldier. Ho was also a man of clean hands, of stubborn integ rity, who never spoke an unkind word or did a mean act, who hated lies and novor used them. Ho might, in many respects, stand for a portrait of Wordsworth's happy worrier, who, like Wellington, held that tho path of duty was the way to glovy. Lord Roberts did not talk about God in tho too confi dent, not to say, patronising ao cents of the Kaiser, but ho had a religious faith, simple and reverent.
