The Widows' and Orphans' (and Chil- dren's Summer Home) Fund total in- creases steadily, and to-day's lists bring it tó£7 .188. The features of the list are a magnificent contribution from the work- men of Messrs. Vivian and.Sons; further capital results of the Churches' Sunday efforts; and other demonstrations of the great helpfulness of the boxes whit:h pro- prietors of amusement houses, licensed houses, restaurants, etc., have been good enough to have placed in their premises. "V.ANDS."MEN. First, as to the V. and S. men. In jail the works they have subscribed to make the total of 4:51 12s. id., of which £20 is from the General Charity Fund. The firm itself has previously contributed .£50 in the Metal Exchange List. We are Roping to hear before the end of the week from the employees of the other great works who have not yet sent contribu- tions, ¡suoh as the Cwmfelin, Baldwin's. nnd the Mannesmann. Letters have gone out to the men of all these concerns, ask- ing them to do a littlft for the fund, and wo have little doubt they will respond as all the other works in Swansea.

The collection boxes in the Theatre BoyaP realised, the sum of about £ 1 a", but this amount is not in the list yet, as we understand there is likely to be a vfcry substantial a<ldition to it. The Lyric Billiard Room collection realised 94 -is.; while in connection with Mr. Routs' effort for the fund, at the Central Hotel, a bumper collection for the fund is hoped for at the billiard match of 500-up there at 9 p.m. to-night between Victor Hugo and Ned Fuller (receives 100). Of the snooker tournament at 9d. per game at the Central this week the whole proceeds go to the funo. There are good prizes. Mr. Tom Byrne's gift of two opera tickets realised S3 7s. Od. SOME CORRECTIONS. The acknowledgment of a subscription tfrom W. Collins. Lewis, Esq., Sketty- road," sfiould have read Dr. W. Collins Lewis the New Siloh collection came to 118 from Mr. Evan John, not from Mr. Evan Jones; and in the Metal Exchange list, the Mr. Haydn Evans' subscription al;ould read: Mr. Haydn Evans, £1 is.; I Mrs. Haydn Evaris, cl Is." SOME FEATURES. Perhaps the most novel anonymous contribution so far is that of today sending 2s. 6d. with no indication 01.' sender's personality or address. One wishes it could be more," says Mr. Charles Roberts in sending his donation; I hope your appeal will be most successful," writes Mr. John R. Down; and Mr. Os- mond J. Curran assures us that nobody has a warmer place in his in-art for fcufrering children ,than he. BAKERS AND THE FUND. Swansea bakers are getting busy. This (Tuesday) morning, each member of the Association has received a circular asking them to start a little fund in each estab- lishmeht. The officials anticipate a hearty and gonerous response, and it if possible that by the time these lines ap- iieBr, we may be, able to supplement them ?.' a Uae of early responses to the circular. GRANTS—AND THANKS. The last batch of grant money orders irjjl lie sent out baforp the evening close* It i possible that some war widow w "i be overlooked, although the scrutiny hisS been very close this yar,but if any lias not received her contribution by the second post to-morrow will she make in- quiry at the "Reader" Office, bringing fnU information "and papers? It must he clearly understood, however, that the fund is confined to the borough, and is for widows of soldiers who have fallen in the war and mothers totally dependent on the earnings of fallen sons. Letters of thanks from those who have t already received money orders make touching reading. One says she will find the money very useful just now. Another ttends Christmas greetings to the hon. secretary and the band of workers, and assures them her grant will be well spent.
