BISHOP'S CURSE. STERN KEPKOOF FROM THE KAISER. Details of the quarrel between the Kaiser and the Bishop of Metz, who declared a cemetery desecrated because of the burial of a Protestant in it, have now been published. The Bishop sought audience of the Emperor, who addressed him in terms of strong reproof. You have cursed a cemetery situated on German soil, the German soil over which I rnle. Do not forget, your reverence, that I, as German Emperor, will never tolerate that even one inch of German soil should be cursed (verfluchfc) âno, not one inch. It is a Bishop's duty to bless, and the moment you begin to curse you cease to be fit for your high position." When the Bishop, in confusion, stammered that he had withdrawn his curse, the Emperor went on: That was the best thing you could do for yourself. I should not have received you again. Do not try to make excuses. Serve God to tho best of your knowledge, but do not forget that you have also to serve your country and your King."
