Santa Claus begs his lady readers in form. ing their engagements not to forget the all- important Dorcas meeting which takes place every Friday afternoon at half past 'three.

Santa Claus" hopes that as many ladies as possible will come in good time on Friday after- noon to No. 15, Tudor-road. "Ajfriend of little children" has this morning forwarded a postal order for 5s., and Mr. Stevens (Dorothy) has quite humbly implored Santa Claus" to lay down his instructions, and they shall be carried eut.

No articles sent in after Saturday, December 16, will be admitted to the Prize Competition. It is important that every artiole should have the name and address of the donor attached to it, so that its receipt may be acknowledged. Money donations will be gratefully acknow- ledged in these columns, and the sums so received will be administered as judiciously as possible in furtherance of the objects of our fiacta Claus Fand. We may add that all-toys and things will be carefully stored away till the day of distribution. On that day the whole of the gifts will be laid out and exhibited in some large, suitable hall, and if the money will run to it the children will be given a feast of tea and cake to bring them into a fit mood for an interview with Santa Claus All gifts should be addressed :— SANTA CLAUS, EVENING EXPRESS OFFICE, ST. MABY-STBEET, CARDIFF. Postal Orders, Cheques, &c., may be made payable to Mr. D. W. Thomas, Western Mail- ] buildings, St. Mary-street, Cardiff. ] If it is not convenient to send a parcel, we < will on the receipt of a postcard send a messen- < ger or a conveyance to fetch it. We ] think our readers will assist the scheme with gifts of money and clothing and toys, ] and so for once give the poor child an advantage over its richer neighbour, for while the latter has to wait the coming of the Santa Claus of blessed memory, the Evening Express Santa C aus will search out his recipients and, if hopes and expectations are realised, load them with Christmas presents.
