POPULAR RAILWAY OFFICIAL. + MR. W. LAMBERTS PROMOTION. Wo are glad to be able to announce that Mr. William Lambert, the obliging and courteous assistant stationmaster at Chester, has received well-merited promotion, having been appointed stationmaster at Barr's Court Station, Here- ford. Mr. Lambert is very popular with the travelling public, and has won the esteem of his numerous colleagues at the important centre at Chester, while gaining a host of friends in the ancient city. All will regret that he is leaving the district, but everyone will join in congratulatng him on his well-deserved pro- motion. Mr. Lambert's new post is an impor- tant one, as Barr's Court Station is on the L. and N.-W. and Great Western Joint line, and is a big junction for several lines. He will suc- ceed Mr. Hughes, who has been transferred to lha etationmasterahip of Shrewsbury. He will leave Chester when tho rush of the Christmas/ traffic is over. Mr. Lambert is a native of Chester. Most of his life, however, has been spemt in the Shrewsbury and Wellington dis- tricts. His railway career extends over thirty- thrco years, he having entered the service at the ago of thirteen. During that time he has had practioal acquaintance with all departments of railway work, which should prove of the utmost value. On leaving the Shrewsbury dis- trict Mr. Lambert became stationmaster at Eilesmere Port., afterwards being appointed at-ationmaster at Frodsham Eight or nine years ago the night 6tationmagtership at Chester be- came vacant, and Mr. Lambert received the position. His willingness and energy soon brought him to the front, and after three years' I service he was promoted to be assistant station- master. It was in this position that he be- camo more generally known and esteemed. Though discharging arduous tasks, Mr. Lam- bert found time to devote himself to work which sought to benefit his fellow-men. He was closely identified with the fri,endly eociety movement, being chairman of the Chester Dis- trict Association of the Hearts of Oak Benefit Society, and in this connection he was greatly interested in the subject of old-age pensions. He was also a Freemason, being one of the brethren of the Travellers' Lodge. Mr. Lam- bert's hobby, however, was ambulance work, which ho always endeavoured to encourage. He recognised fully how essential it was that rail- wayman should be acquainted with the prin- ciples of first aid, and during the last four years he has acted as class secretary to the am- bulainoe classes at Chester, throwing himself heart and soul into the work. It is gratify- ing to hear that the importance of the work has been frequently demonstrated on the Chester Station, and on several occasions members of the ol:M5 have been instrumental in practically saving life. As a Churchman he has for five years discharged the duties of sidesman at St. Barniabas's Church. He was also a supporter of the Volunteer movement, and in his younger days he was a member of the Herefordshire Volunteers. Cestrians will wish him every prosperity in his new sphere of labour, and hope to hear of his still further success.
