ECY TOWER FETE. Another Great Success. Miss Bevan aud her helpers were fortunate in having a perfect evening for the second garden fete and gift sale at Ely Tower, in aid of the Prisoners of War and British Red Cross Funds but they deserved their good luck, for they worked very hard, and with excellent judgment. One could hardly have dared hope, however, that the financial result would be so splendid as it proved. The first Ely Tower war fund fete, held last July, was a striking novelty and though there were some changes in the attractions this year, the main conditions were necessarily the same. To pass last year's fine total of receipts by nearly a third,—which is what actually happened-must therefore be regarded as an extraordinary triumph, on which Miss Bevan and those who worked with her, and the local public who responded so freely to the call for help for two noble causes, must be alike congratulated. Over 1.000 people paid for admission at the gates, and about 1,400 tickets were sold beforehand, figures which prove a record attendance for any gathering of the kind at Brecon. War circumstances prevent any attempt at full notice of the various attractions, but some words of praise must be allowed to the band of the Depot South Wales Borderers. Ably con- ducted by Mr Fenner. L.R.A.M., the band played skilfully and without stint for hours and perhaps without hardly realising it, the crowds of people who thronged the banks and gardens till ten o'clock owed much of their pleasure to the music. Following is a list of the stallholders and assistants :— Fancy Stall.—Mrs Molyneux Thomas, Mrs Chambers, Hon. Mrs Hare-Ruthven, Mrs Jones, Mrs Webb, Mrs Orton, Mrs Gwillim, Miss D. Wilcox.
