it is righteousness and not

the watch Words of which are,
'Responsibility, Duty, Sympa
thy. Self sacrifice.' 1 feel very
Strongly that all children while
at school should he taught some
of the responsibilities which na
rurally attach to British citizen
ship. Hut believe me it is not
enough to teach and preach, we
must do more than that, we
must ourselves be prepaied to
shew by our daily lives that the
( hi istian virtues which the
( ireat Queen of blessed menu irj
whose birthday we com memo
rate, moat admired and pra< tis
ed are those which we are de
termined to follow oursel
and teach to our children.
1 wish for a moment to lay
emphasis on Sell sacrifice, be
cause there is no use talking and
teaching si If sacrifice unless as
a matter of fact we are prepar

be the most miserablehypoci ites
i v, isc. I hi re it a Fund in the
Old Countrj called the Children
of the Empire fund, of which
Lord Meath is the Patn n. Now,
Children, that Fund which has
the approval of the King and
Queen, has been started lor the
purpose of affording relief to the
Sailors and the Soldiers who
have been disabled and blind, d
while righting for you in the
great war, and when mom.} is
available it is intended to i
workshops where these mencan
be trained and taught suitable
trades. Now I will tell you
why the Appeal is made to you.
and to all the other children of
the Empire, because many a
maimed ami blinded hero is
comforted and helped by know-
ing that the children, although
I ibly only able to give pen
nies, remembered him. He will
he soothed by the thought that
'the little children have done
this for me'. It is well known
that the kindness ol children
is vary dear in I he strong man
in trouble Now 1 want all
the children who are here today
and who are going to assist me
to help the blind s,oh ri and
soldiers to hold up their hands
It only remains foi me to
thank the Hoard rtf Education,
the teachers and all the scholars
foi the lojal and pntiiotic Pro
gramme wbi.'h \ ou have givi n
us.
