AN AUTOMATIC BOOKING CLERK. The Great Western Railway Company will start, some time in February, upon an important experiment. They have decided to install at Snow Hill Station, Birming- ham, a railway ticket printing machine which, it is contended, will render almost superfluous the booking-clerk as we know him to-day, and that it will also do away with the somewhat cumbrous systems of storing the thousands of different tickets which may be called for by the travelling public. The machine is a small and unpreteit- ious-looking contrivance. It is 3Ít 6in. long. baraly 2ft broad, and 4ft in height. When a ticket to a certain station is reguired an indicator, which carries the name of every station on the system arranged in alphabetical order is touched, the clerk slips a blank into a slot in the printing carriage, a small handle is turned, and a completely printed ticket drops out ready for use that is all the work required
