Mr. Ellis Lever's Railway Reform Proposal. The Liverpool Mercury (August 14th, 1894): Mr Lever has received an assurance that the question will come before the General Man- agers at their meeting in November next. There is little doubt that it will be taken seriously itito consideration and with results beneficial to the public. The Liverpool Daily Post (August 15th, 1894): Some correspondence which has taken place between Mr Eilis Lever, of Colwyn Bay, on the one hand, and the Board ot Trade and the Railway Companies Association on the other, emphasises the perplexities which often beset travellers 10 unfamiliar parts of the country. Railway porters call out the names of the stations with such infinite variety of accent that only a full-blooded native can make anything of them. It may be said that the name of every station is blazoned on a sign- board. Obviously, however, all the carriages 01 a long train cannot be drawn up opposite the announcement, so that the obliquity of v,eV! enforced upon those in the front and rear wouW in many cases prevent the name from being de- ciphered even were it not hidden in a mass ot trade advertisements. The story of the High- lander who, frilling asleep on a London omnibus was awakened by stentorian shouts of "Oban the Cockneyism for Holborn—and for a briei instant thought he had been transported to hip home in the Highlands, is at least ben trovato 1 not strictly veto. Rustic passengers do at a- events often fall into ludicrous error, and it is to make railway travellers independent of verba eccentricities that Mr Lever has addressed him- self to the Board of Trade and the railway authorities. From the Government Department Mr Lever did not receivernuch satisfaction, beyond a hint that it was for the principal Railway Co'1*! panies to take the initiative in such matters. lV F. Harrison, writing from the General Manager s Office of the London and North-Western Railway, confessed his obligations to Mr Lever for calling attention to the matter, but cautiously refrained from any expression ofopinion Sir Henry showed less reserve, implying that the question might be expected to come before the Genera Managers of the various railways for consideration at their next meeting in November. There is thus some ground for indulging the hope that the eV will shortly be remedied. The Liverpool Courier v August 16th, 1894): F°r the average railway traveller, inexperienced in the art of unravelling cryptographs and in tha rap of picking up a new language in a single !essOp> the difficulty of distinguishing the names of ra1' way stations from the confusing array of adver- tisements commonly surrounding them is 011 excelled by the utter incomprehensibility of t'1" railway porters' proclamations on the subje1- Although it may be to the advantage 0 advertisers in railway stations to have the name of the station so indistinguishable at sight frot their own announcements as to ensure that th f latter will be the more impressed on the minds 0 f observers, it is desirable, in the public interests,. that greater distinctness should be given to nan1"' of stations. With this object in view, some proposals for- warded by Mr Ellis Lever, Colwyn Bay, to the Board of Trade and to the principal RailwaY Companies are interesting, practical, and worthy of the attention which, judging from the bne correspondence that has passed between Mr Leve: and the recipients of his suggestions, they Me; likely to receive at a not distant date. Unifor^' ity as to the colour and design of the namehoai't- in all the stations throughout the United Kingdom is the first and main proposition. So long as t'1" principle is agreed upon, the precise size, colollr, and other details of the new signboards ar matters of comparatively little importance, tholl.g doubtless there will be no serious content1011 against Mr Lever's further suggestion that the colour which would be found most striking a,a ground is the royal mail red, which is already use to distinguish signal lights, pillar-boxes, arK mailcarts It is cheering to know tt>a these suggestions, aimed at effecting a much- needed reform in connection with our railways, have elicited a response to the effect that tri question will come before the General lVIanager of the various Companies for consideration a their next meeting in November. This proffllS" opens out a prospect of some uniform arrange ment being arrived at for the greater convenience of the railway traveller, who so frequently, under existing conditions, "dunno where he are."

To be stung by a Jelly Fish is not a pleasant experience, a-d may prove very troublesome unless you have Homocea handy to apply, when all pain and swelling instantly vanishes. Homocea is an invaluable remedy at the Seaside should be used for Sunburn, Blisters, Wasp-Stings, andall kinds of Insect Bites. Use also for Cuts, Burns, Toothache, Rheumatism, and all Skin Troubles. It will stop an Influenza Cold like magic- BLAIR ATHOL, HOYLAKE. "Dear Sirs,-On the 17th of June, which I think was one of the hottest days of the year, I spent the day on Hilbre Island, and was unfortunate enough to get my feet sunburned and ba ily stung by Jelly Fish. By the day following my feet had swoollen and were inflamed to such an extent that I was quite unable to stand on them. For a week I treated them with carron oil, hazeline, and hazeline cream without any satisfactory results. I then thought I would try 'Homocea,' I persevered with it, and after applications at intervals during 24 hours, I was agreeably pleased to find the swelling and inflammation rapidly disappearing. After two days use of it I was able to stand, and now, with e the exception of a little weakness about the ankles, my feet are all right again.-Yours truly, E. S. SMYTH." If 'Homocea' had been used at once a whole week's suffering would have been saved.
