FOR BLEEDING BELGIUM
COLLECTION IX DUNE-DIN" STREETS TO-DAY. The collection organised by the Saturday Hospital Association, in aid of tho Belgian children and the Belgian doctors and pharmacists fund, was started this moniin°- in our sheets. About 400 ladies undertook the duty. iach carried a box and the Belgian colors. Each also carried a winning way. lhe appeals were direct, but most courteous. Helped by their manner and made strong by the worthiness of their cause, the collectors did well—so it seemed, though up to the time of our going to pros* no count of the returns had been made. Tiie appeal was of a twofold nature. The ladies offered for sale at sixpence each tickets in the art union which was started by the association 15 months ago and is to bo drawn on Monday, and they also had Belgian buttons on sale at a shilling each. The tax per head was therefore pitched at a sum that could not be grumbled about even by those of us who have to " ante up" to one cause or another every week. Sixteen stands were erected as the bases of operations, and these were thus allottedPost Office, Miss Rattray (Red Cross); Jacobs's corner, Miss Stewart (Women's Association); Stcck Exchange, Miss Hooper (Nurses' Division, St. John Ambulance); Grand Hotel, Miss M.
