SHORT BREAD.—Take one pound and a quarter of flour, balf a pound of sugar, half a pound of butter, three eggs, a large teaspoonful of BORWICK'S BAKING POWDER, and a little essence of lemon. Make four cakes out of tiva ounces of dough, mould into a round form, then roll them out into an oval shape, pinch them round the edges, put a piece of candied lemon-peel at the top, and bake slowly. IMPORTANT TO ALL WHO SING.-From Mr. E. Page, Director of the Choir, and Organist of St. Marie's Catholic Church, Newport, Monmouthshire Having frequently suffered much from relaxation of the throat, 1 have Often been obliged to resort to various preparations but since I have had the good fortune to try Dr. Locock's Pulmonic Wafen, I am now but seldom obliged to use them, for the extraordinary good effects they have produced are most surprising. Even when the throat appears to be completely exhausted, and the voice to be nearly gone, two or three (at most four) will, in the short space of half an hour or 60, completely restore its flexibility an,1 power, and they do not act as a mere temporary exciting lemedy, nor do they leave any lassitude after." Dr. Locock's Wafers give instant relief and a rapid cure of asthma, consumption, coughe and all disorders of the breath and lungs. They ls. 1A(I., Qs. 9( 1 aiik l have a most pleasant taste. Price Is. 28.9d., and 4s. Gd. per box. Sold by all druggists. Beware of coun- terfeits. RAILWAY PASSENGER AND GUARD SIGNALS.—A vast amount of ingenuity has been expended for the ac- complishment of the apparently very simple object of effecting a communication between passengers and guards and driver while a train is in motion. Of those which propose to effect the object by electric agency the most complete is certainly that of Mr. Preece, which was noticed some time since in this journal. The plan of Mr. Tattersall, which we have also noticed, was a very fair type of the plans of signal by means of sound. A third plan, mechanical in its action, and which, so far as we are awere, is unique in its character, is one in- vented by Mr. Pickworth, by which it is proposed to convey an actual message from the passenger to the guard by means of a pneumatic tube running beneath the carriages and throughout the whole length of the train. There is in each compartment a vertical tube, communicating with a horizontal one beneath the tr. iiage, and tt the mouth (if the (upr ht tnbe there is a round marble or pellet, having upon it the numb r of he particular carriage in which it is placed. The pas- senger wishing to communicate with the guard releases this ball, which drops by its own weight, a-id is carried on by a current of air to the guard's van, upoi reaching the end of the tube, in which it raises a valve, and the air rushing out, produces a loud and shrill whistle. The Bupply of air in the tube is kept up by a bellows arrange- ment"tixed in the tender or leading carriage in the train, and worked by the revolution of the wheel. The coupl- ing between the carriages is proposed to be effected by means of a short length of flexible or elastic tubing. The force of the current of the air is ample sufficient to send the ball along the tube in a train of ordinary length, and it is found that where the flexible coupling droops below the level, it does not interrupt the passage ofithe little messenger1
