Passages of Farewell Speech Identi? cal With His Predecessors New York Herald. Weetmlnetor has been enjoying a great Joke theae laat few days, auch as it la rarely accustomed to. The disclosure of the fact that whole pas? sages of the speech in which Lord Kitchener bade farewell to India were identical word for word with the elaborate valedictory oration deliver? ed bv Lord Curson four years ago has ?P^?^???????? caused no end of amusement. Of course, there Is no particular mystery about the matter. Lord Cur zon, as is well known, writes his i speeches, in India it was his practice to have them printed beforehand and to deliver them with the printed copy before him. It is fairly safe to say, however, that Lord Kitchener, never writes anything if he can avoid it. There can be little doubt that when the last days of his term of office were approaching he turned over the task of composing an appropriate farewell to one of his secretaries, who went for his points to a master of the art, and lifted chunks of eloquence which the unpoetical Lord Kitchener never could have evolved from his matter of-fact mind right out of Lord Cur zon's great speech. But the question is, who gave Lord Kitchener away? The mischievous j auggestion is that "Memor," who sup? plied the deadly parallel in the Times, may be Lord Curzon himself. But it must be remembered that the Times is read in every club and mess room in India, and even Anglo-Indians have memories. Author it., on Farming I>ond. Baltimore. Md., Oct. 10.?Alpheus P.
