A SINGULAR INCIDENT ON THE RAILWAY.—On Monday afternoon, April 20th, a curious and remarkable incident occurred, at Llandudno Junction, in connexion with the boat express from London to Holyhead. The train, which was some twenty minutes late, left the Junction and pro- ceeded slowly towards the Tubular Bridge over the Conway, where it came to a dead stop. The passengers looked out and saw the locomotive enveloped in steam, but quite unable to move the train, consisting of fourteen coaches. It backed then went forward, and then stopped again. After several minutes fruitlessly spent in these experi- ments, the driver violently blew his whistle, which attracted the attention of the station-master (Mr Benbow) at the Junction, who in turn signalled to the engine shed for a light engine. This eventu- ally came up, the station-master mounted it, and went to the rescue. The light engine gave the boat express a friendly shove, behind, and started it, and it proceeded on its way, another ten minutes being added to the time lost previously. AN ENJOYABLE CYCLING TOUR FOR LADIES.- The following appeared among the Manchester Guardian "Cycling Notes" on April 20th:—" My Birkdale correspondent "Pearl, who names a route beginning with Bala, and going thence through Dolgelly, Barmouth, Harlech, Tremadoc, to Criccieth and back, Beddgelert, Capel Curig, Bettws-y-Coed, and so to Conway, has not sketched a tour in any way too ambitious for her- self and two other ladies. It is true that they only learnt to ride at Christmas time, but they don't mean to undertake the tour till May, and in the meantime they have 10-mile spins on all fine days. The work will of course be hilly, and I should advise, them to go a little further and practise on the less level country to the eastward of their home. The ankle should be given as much play as possible, and all little hills, like the rises over railways, should be taken at a smart spurt, increasing towards the top. On the long ascents they should ride at a moderate pace, and side by side, if they have the road to themselves. The help that company gives, however meta- physical, is very real, and is exactly akin to the value of "pacing" in a race. As soon as the weakest of the three can surmount ordinary inclines at about eight miles an hour there will be no need to tear the hills of Wales, nor will the tourists find it necessary to limit themselves to the very short stages they propose and stay a night at each place named in the route." A PLEASING REFERENCE TO THE ANCIENT BOROUGH.—A writer in the April number of "The 5, Bow Church Yard Review, a sixpenny quarterly magazine which contains several in- teresting articles, in a brief description of the Great Orme's Head Marine Drive, makes a very pleasing reference to the ancient Borough At the extreme point of the Great Orme we pass the noble structure of the lighthouse, which should, however, be seen from the sea to be properly appreciated. It is built on a rock, which rises in an almost perpendicular line to a great height above the sea. Soon we come in sight of Puffin Island and the coast of Anglesey, with Penrhyn Castle, the Menal Straits and the Bridges in the distauce. Our view now assumes a new aspect, and one which we consider cannot be sur- passed. As the eye travels past Penmaenmawr town, which lies at the foot of the headland of that name, and along the estuary of the Conway,
