BELGIAN PRISONERS IN GERMANY RELIEF COMMITTEE.—In connection with the offerings

made in the Cathedral on King Albert's Feast Day for this worthy object, and with the fact that the Lord Mayor, who attended in state, is one of the honorary treasurers of the fund, it is of interest to note that this work of relief for Belgian prisoners of war in Germany was absolutely doubled during the last two months : 2,000 parcels are now sent off every week. There are 5,250 men to whom the Committee send food. The Anglo-Belgian Committee have complete charge of six camps, the other camps being in charge of another committee. The committee seek to find 40,000 English friends for the 40,000 Belgian prisoners of the Huns. A favourite plan is the adoption of an individual prisoner, to whom the benefactor sends a parcel regularly. The President is Lady Lowther. The Committee's premises are at 4, London Wall Avenue, E.C.
