       Mr. and Mrs. WHITTLE, Falcon House, have given to the church a third
brass alms plate and have had the other two cleaned and re-lacquered. During
the summer season when there are large congregations  the new alms dish will be
found very useful.

       On Sunday evening the Rev. Henry Eldred WOOD, B. A., of St. John's,
Barrow-in-Furness, was the special preacher. There was a large congregation. The
plans of the vicarage are in the hands of the Ecclesiastical Commissioners
for final approval, after which a start will be made.

       Subscriptions have been sent from Captain WHITTLE, Shanghai, £5. Mr.
BURDEHIN, a visitor sends £2 2s as a thank offering for benefits received
during his stay at Seascale. Miss HUBBARD and Miss. Alice HUBBARD have each
collected £1.

       The Harvest Festival preacher will be the Rev. Hubert F. TILBURY, B.
A., curate of Cleator Moor.
