THE WELSH IN LONDON On Friday, Mrs Watts Hughes, formerly so well knowR throughout Wales under her maiden n of Megan Watts, as a singer of sacred music, opened a home for destitute boys, at 185, Holloway-road. For some years Mrs Watts Hughes has been actively engaged in the work of reclaiming the waifs and strays of North London, in establishing a shoe- black brigade, and otherwise furthering the inter- est of a considerable number of gutter boys and street arabs. For some time the work has been hampered by the want of suitable premises wherein to carry it on. Mr Hughes at last succeeded in se- curing a very commodious house, which has been transformed with care and economy into a "boy's home." At a meeting presided over by Mr Paton, a number ofaddrosees were delivered by ladies and gentlemen in sympathy with the movement, and Mr and Mrs Hughes gave some details .connected with their scheme, the latter narrating her experi- ence in the matter since her earliest days at her Dowlais home. The workJproBQises to be productive of the greatest good in the neighbourhood, but as it1 entails considerable expense, pecuniary and other assistance will be required for its ultimate success. Mr T. Marchant Williams, B.A., inspector of schools for the London School Board, will contri- bute to the August number of the "Leisure Hour" a sketeh of the life and labours of the late Sir Hugh Owen, a subject on which he is specially qualified to write, both on account of his close con- nection with Sir Hugh, and the possession of speeial information. We understand that Mrs John Rhys, wife of the Celtic Professor at Oxford, has undertaken to read a paper on the Education of Girls, at one of the meetings of the Cymmrodorion Section, at the Den- bigh National Eisteddfod.
