PIS PL AY IX lIAXOVBR. STREET HALL The above league sent at tho end of September to tho poor of Great Britain a supply of nearly 5,000 garments. Since then, tho members of the league have been working right royally in order to make a similar contribution to the Belgium relief fund. At tho Hanover Street Sunday Scbool Hall can be seen lb© practical outcome of their efforts. The room is full of garments of all descriptions, all good and serviceable. The contributions from tho outlying districts are marked off. Gore has sent a fin© lot, while Waimato, Mosgiel, Berhampor© (Wellington), Winton, and Maori Hill have all don© their share. Of the Dunedin display, conspicuous is a table of baby clothes made by the Choral Hall missionary ladies. Mxss Mackersy has sent from the shirty factory a number of shirts of good and strong material. The league have thought of the comfort of tho Belgian poor, but they have gone further than this. In each garment a penny is sewn in the pocket or somewhere about th© garment. On© can imagine the delight of the little Belgian as ho or she finds the copper coin all the way from far-off Xcw Zealand. The goods now on display aro to be sent off immediately. Mns M'Larcn is to be complimented on "the way she has worked early said late for the suffering and homeless little ones in Belgium.
