Shortening the Route to Shakespeare's Country. This year will see the opening of anotber link by the Great Western Railway Company, name- ly that between Ashendon and Aynho, which will very materially shorten the journey be- tween London and the Midland and Northern Counties. The last rail of the new line was laid a few days ago, and the route was opened for goods traffic on Monday, April 4th. The present proposal is to commence the express and local passenger train services in July next. It is remarkable, in view of the many bonefitsi that will accrue, that the length of the new portion of line is less than 20 miles. The tract of country opened, up—as yet little known- abounds in beautiful scenery and rich land- scape, and will appeal equally for residential sjjd holidav purposes. Special mention should bo made of Brill, situated on an eminenoe of 600 feet, and Bicester, the centre of a hunting district. A feature of the new route is the easier and direct access to all parts of Shake- J speare's country, including such famous places at Stratford-on-Avon, Leamington, W&rwiok gf Arita* J
