LORD CDRZON'S DONTS

THOUGHTS AND DEEDS TO AVOID IN WAR TIME. Twelve don’ts for war time were addressed to the masters and boys ofi Harrow School by Lord Curzcji in a speech recently. They were: Don’t think the war does not affect you individually. It touches every] one of us —it touches every man, woman, and child in this country’. Don’t bo overjoyed at victory; don’t bo downhearted at defeat. Don’t bo unnerved by personal or family bereavements. Don’t bo frightened nt the casualty lists, so long and sometimes so distressing, that you see in tho newspapers. Don’t think that you know how to wage the campaign, and that tho War Office does not;/ accordingly don’t write to the papers telling generals and admirals what they ought to do; but if you have an opinion that you could do it much better, keep that opinion for your own fireside, and tell it to as few people as possible. .Don’t got nervous because the progress of the war is slow; it, can only be slow in these stages. Don’t believe all you read, particularly when it comes from Berlin. Don’t underrate the enemy'. Don’t waste breath in attempting to ascertain what ia to happen to the German Emperor in this world or tha next. We will endeavor to dispose of him in this world, and we will leave to others his ulterior destiny. Don’t begin to divide up the German Empire before you havo got hold of it. Don’t listen to anyone who cries “Halt!” before wo havo carried out the full purpose for which wo arc fighting. When the war is over, don’t throw away the lessons of tho war. " We aro in for no light or easy or soonlennin.abio campaign,” he said. “I am perfectly shocked when I read in the papers that some people are of tho opinion that this war trill be over by Christmas, and that tho soldiers will bo returning home. “In my judgment more than one Christmas will pass before the soldiers return home.” ho said, speaking with great deliberation. Speaking of the Kaiser, Lord Curzon said : ’’ Whatever punishment befall him, whether at the hands of man or from One who is greater than man, of this I am certain: that the execration of all ages will be for ever attached to that man, and that his namo will go down to history as William the Bloodstained, William the Assassin.”
