The Women’s Patriotic Committee acknowledge indebtedness for the' splendid support accorded them, especially by the women of Port Chalmers, for the knitt;ng of socles, cuffs, Balaclavas, etc. Wool for further knitting is obtainable at the Rectory, Port Chalmers. .Money received : [Mrs Douglas £l, Luck Carey, Doily MTlaffic, and Alice Denton collected £2 Its 5 little Mies Stevenson, selling flowers, 2s ; Miss Louie Contis 2s ; Mrs Smyth, 5s ; Standard IV., D.H. School, 12s. A full meeting of the committee of the late Belgian carnival was held last evening to receive the balance-sheet. Th's showed a most successful result to the labors of all concerned. The net result o fthe carnival was £489, and this amount (together with £2l voted by the Ladies’ Patriotic Committee) has been banded to the Belgian Consul (Mr G. L. Denniston) for transmission by cable to London. The committee felt that, where all worked so hard for the success of the carnival, it would be inv'dious to single any out for special thanks. Nevertheless they express their heartiest thanks to all who contributed in any way to the success of the procession, the entertainments, the competitions, or any other phase of the carnival. They desire to thank specially a number of friends from the surrounding districts who gave substantial donations to the carnival. It was decided that a copy of the balance-sheet should be exhibited at the Post Office for the informa' tion of all concerned. Though the work for which the committee had been formed was completed, a strong disinclination to disband was manifested, and it was decided that the committee continue, and devote their attention to anything of a patriotic or philanthropic nature that may seem advisable.

Dorrit and Pcggoly Hcnsloigh send us 6s for the Belgian relief fund. The money was raised by the sale of a certain preparation for use in households. Wo have also received 10s 6d from “ 8.H.K.” and 10s 6U from “ A .K. ” for tho same fund.
