A well-named collection of virile verses. Here is a splendid thrill of vigorous combat with the world's various problems, Several of the poems have a medical bearing; "The Consulting Room" is a graphic picture from a layman's viewpoint. The cogent appeal in "The Real Thing," addressed to one who may think he is down and out, is a tonic, while, of quite another sort, "The Mirror" has a mystic tenderness, which by contrast with the majority of poems, shows the breadth of the author's feelings.
