THE SMOKING NUISANCE IN RAILWAY CARRIAGES. To the Editor of the "Llangollen Advertiser." Sir,-It is in the nature of some people to grumble; and I fear my travelling companion during a short tour of ten or twelve days through North Wales may place the writer in the same category from his frequent remonstrances with the "knights of the weed infesting the railway carriages. It is a marvel that the railway authorities do not forbid the noxious odour to be so indiscriminately puffed by many of those whom the Bishop of Manchester, the other day, so tersely and truthfully designated as "the foolish boys who wish to appear to be men," and by others old enough to know better than to indulge in their own selfish habit to the annoyance of half a dozen of their fellow-travellers! It is positively disgusting to thousands, and annoying to all except themselves, especially in these sultry days. Many, like myself, going away for purer air have, alas upon every stage to expostulate with two or three of this fraternity for as soon as the train starts you will hear the cracking of the match, then the disagree- able fusee at once fills the compartment, and lastly comes the nauseous stink from an old, old, question- able meerschaum! The writer can tolerate the idea of a man smoking a clean broseley or a cigar in the open air, or even with his glass at an inn, but cannot in the case of a man smoking in a railway carriage, especially if he does so without consulting the feelings of those present with him. Trusting that the railway officials will spare the public the annoyance now so common by confining the smokers to their own cars, I ask the insertion of my remarks in your paper. I am, sir, yours, &c., ONE THAT SMOKES. July 20fch, 1878.
