£5,639. Ten Days to Xmas. Have You Sent Your Donation. Another Big Day for the Fund. [Send your contribution to-night to the hon. treasurer, Mr. David Roberts, J.P., 61, Wind-street, Swansea.] The Widows' and Orphans' (and Children's Summer Home) Fund is for the widows and children of ALL Swansea men who have fatten in the war, cither on land or sea. It is necessary to state this because we understand it is not thoroughly rea- lised in a few quarters that the scope I of the fund is so extended. I GIFTS-BIG AN SMALL. I As our readers will see from the list gi ven below, the week-end has been very iruitful for the fund. We have to ac- knowledge with deep gratitude a cheque lor F.100 from Messrs. John and David oiasbrook, and a large number of other most gratifying contributions, of which Retails are given. There are, however, some contributions in respect of which we ought to say a few words. STREET COLLECTIONS. I Mr. Stanley H. George, for instance, comes along with a freewill gift from the occupiers of l-tW, baptist Well-street, in- cluding flail-terrace, collected by him on j Sa<:ur<?y afternoon. In enclosing th? j amount, MP. George says:—" It was very j gratifying to see the splendid response j that 1 had from every house I visited, it i is only a working-class district, and I liope t no amount collected from this street will stimulate others and cause a com- petitive spirit, which would increase the iund. What one street in 6wansea can do. others should follow, with still larger amounts. „ if attests are desirous of following ta i., xu 1 f TTTiii 1*1 exajuple'. we shall do our best to obtain boxes for the collections, but if there are not sufficient, we hope inhabi- tants will overcome the difficulty among I themselves. THE WORKS' HELP. I We have to acknowledge the contribu- tion ox the employees 01 the Cwmbwria Ifini,lat, Works. Mr. Jti. T. Hughes iLi- forIL15 us that the men have coniriouted no less a sum than thirteen guineas, ivhich is a great lead to the other works 01 the town. We understand well-wishers of the fund are moving in the direction of beeuring collections elsewhere. TRADERS' EFFORTS. I This week Swansea grocers are meeting, and we understand ulat the matter 01 u,i;auising tne grocers' collection for the tund is to be conbiuered. -iii-e boot trade and the fruiterers are also being ap- proached in this direction. 6 wa n tseu. liutchers have already amassed a fine amount for the luud, but we understand their list is not yet closed. AMUSEMENT HOUSES' SHARE. I Mr. George 11. liichardswn, manager ui the Swansea Empire, writeb to the iion. secretary to say mat it lias Dcen OecioeU 10 have collections m the Empire on ijoiing Day and on the loliownig day. x iiete are the pick of the ciays, and we have to express gratitude to Alr. iaciiard- bon for this most generous oiler. OPERA TICKETS. I An interesting oiler comes froll:k III-. Toni Byrne, 01 the Uraiwi Theatre, who Vrites to the hon. secretary as follows:— "As you are doubtless aware, there is a great run on tne seats for the AmuteUr Operatic Society's performance of The "\«omen of the Guard," and everybody ap- ■nirs to be keen on being present on I'riday evening. Having taken over two Cats which a gentleman found he was unable to use,l thought it would be a good Sa to offer them to you for auction for aiid Orphans' Tund through the (■oluinns of the paper, or in any way you I like. it you decide upon the former method, knowing how you must be inun- dated with letters, I will gladly have the ¡ offers addressed to me if you think They are twq excoue-itt seats (gangway) I the front circle, and the ordinary price is 7S." < We will be glad if those who care to rfitler for the tickets will address letters to I Mr. Tom Bryne at the Grand Theatre. I THE CHURCHES. I With regard to the churches, we under- stand that a carol service is to be held at Wesley Chapel next Sunday evening, at -which the collection will be in aid of the fund. The Executive of the Swansea Federa- tion of Brotherhoods intend making a joint effort for the fund. The president is Mr. T. Dri-nkwqteiz, secretary, Mr. Her- bert Morgan, Pinewood-road; and the treasurer, Mr. Hodges. At Argyle, Mr. G. A. Tasker, the church HMrGtary. informs us they propose taking iL retiring collection at both services next Sunday, the 21st inst., and Terrace-road M.) C ,Ilurcb has decided likewise. In I th" evening there will he a carol service "under the conductorsh.p of Mr L. J. Clee. Cwmbwrla Welsh Congregational Church is also to make a retiring collec- tion inext Sunday- 'P' WATCH NIUNI. The Vicar of Swansea is considering ways and means of helping the fund, hoth in the mother church of St. Mary s and in other churches, a.nd there is a Pros- ppct that the collection at the Watch Nisrht Servick, of St. Marr's will he de- voted to the fund.
