CAMROSE. The natives of this parish were pleased and delighted with two. concerts given by the Boys' Military Band connected with the "Homes for Little Boys" at Famiugham and Swanley, Kent. The concerts commenced at five and tight o'clock p m. The band, composed of lads from eleven to fifteen years of age, acquitted themselves right well. The piece called "Trafalgar," descriptive of that battle, really electrified the audience, and would, if per- formed so well by more experienced musicians, have been no disgrace to them. The object, t-f course, was chairity, and if the matter had been more widely known the response to the appeal for fund, would have been greater. The LJle difficulty was the board and lodging of ti twenty boys for the night. But as soon as the Camios* people, who are always renowned for their gerercsity, knew what was wanted, plenty of homes and to spai-e were opened fraaly and generously to house and feed the young peop'e. The ladies who accommodated the juven les were: Mrs. J. V. S. Bennett, Wolfsdale House; Mrs. George, CamTose Home Farm; Mrs. Hancock,. Robl-'ston, Mrs. Marr, Robleston; Mrs. Mathias, East Dudvveil; M-8. Lloyd, Old Inn; Mrs. Senecal, New Inn; Miss Warlow, Haysford; and Mrs Young, The Folly. Mrs. W. War low, Wolfsdale, gave some of the boys tea, and one of the ladies actually stayed up all night to house two. of them. Mr. G. H. Barker, the deputation, thanked the managers for letting them have the room free of charge, and also all those who in any way had so kindly come forward in their difficulty to help and assist them. He said that the Homes for Little Boys at Farringham and Swanley had been established for forty years, and the com- mittee had sent out thousands into the world well equipped for the battle of life. One of the boys then present was going out to Canada in May next. The HOp.1e were in the focm of cottages, holding about thirty boy each, and in authority at each cottage were a foster father and mother. There'were 300 boys at Farningham and 200 at Swa.iley, within easy distance of each othex. The boys were admitted from th age of two up to ten year3. The boys, to the writer's eye, appeared well set up, well behaved, properly disciplined, sturdy set of \oungsters, and were a credit- to the hOit n?. who are doing titch good wock among ouf less fortunate brethren.
