THE total subscriptions and fees received for the Cheap Cottages

Exhibition up to March 30th amount to .t1,080, besides a further £100 promised to the Prize Fund by the Garden City Company. It is confidently hoped that when the entries close in a fort- night's time there will be a prospect of one hundred cottages 'being built. Among those who have recently consented to become patrons of the Exhibition is Lord Barrymore. Though the result achieved up till now is encouraging, those responsible for the organisation of the Exhibition are most anxious to see the subscription list still further augmented in order that the prizes may be on an adequate scale. We trust, therefore, that readers of the Spectator will help the work by donations. The following sum has recently been received through the Spectator :— William Barnard, LL.B. ... £1 1 0 We are asked by the "County Gentleman" to state that Mr. Wilbraham V. Cooper is the organising secretary of the Exhibi- ,tion, and that all inquiries in regard to the Cheap Cottages Exhibition made by Builders and others who propose to exhibit should be addressed to the Secretary, Cheap Cottages Exhibition, 347 Birkbeck Bank Chambers, Holborn, W.C.
