ST. PETER'S SCHOOLROOM.
A general meeting of St. Peter's Sewiog Guild was held nt the Vicarage on Wednesday afternoon. There was a fair attendance. Owing to holidays, measles, etc, .it has not been possible to hold this meeting earlier, though it should have been held in January.
The balance sheet for the late sale of.work was read, and is as follows:— Total cash receipts £57 15s, balance in hand from concert £5, making a sum of £62 15s. Expenses were :£4 63 8d to the Ministering Children's League, proceeds of their stall, and £10 13s Si, expenses in connection with sale (advertising, ball, rent, etc ), making a total of £15 O.s 4d. This leaves ua with £47 Ms 8d to our credit in the Bank.
The result of the first opening of the collecting boxe3 was £8 B J. Collected by Misses Taylor and Editb Julius, £2 lls 3d ; Misses Youngman and Stocker, £2; Miss Mast-field, lls 2d; Miss B. Jacobson, £113? 3d; Miss Morrison, £1 1-13. Tbip added to the sum already in the Bank brings our total up to £56 4s 4d, and with £200 from the Vicarage sale, we have £256 is 4d towards our school building fund,
The Girls' Friendly Society have had a small sum in band for many years, collected originally for the fur nishing of a room in a schoolroom, which could be used by the G F.B. at any time This sum, which has nearly reached £25 now, will be used for furnishing the new schoolroom. The members of the Guild express ed regret on hearing through their collectors that some people are under the impression that the monies col lected are to be given to the Vicarßge building fund. This is absolutely in correct. The money for the Vicarage is held by the Church property trustees, and is the sale money of the present Vicarage, and no one is asked to give even a penny towards it. The money collected in the boxes will be given, as is stated on such box, to the schoolroom fond only, and as the sum askad for is only Id a week, they cannot think there is ono parishioner too poor to give to it, and hope they will trust those at' the head of the movement to be honest (
