THE AQUITANIA AT FISHGUARD.—The arrival of the Cunarder "Aquitania," the great- est triumph in the art of shipbuilding that the world has as yet ever witnessed, at Fishguard on Tuesday last, constitutes one more milestone in the annals of the great transatlantic port of call which the energy and foresight of the Great Western Railway has brought into existence, [. and which brings Europe and America one whole I day nearer to each other. Some travellers by the Aquitania," already popularly known as the Ship Beautiful, will keenly appreciate the advantage of getting to London or the Contin- ent direct by the Great Western special expres- ses, while others will linger awhile at the up- to-date Fishguard Bay Hotel, situate amidst the loveliest scenery of Western Wales, and then proceed via Fishguard and Rosslare to Southern Ireland—the land of Lakes, or make one or other of the innumerable tours which the Holiday 'Line of England offers its patrons. The Aquitania left New York at noon on Wednesday, the 10th inst, and was sighted off Fishguard at 5.10 a.m. on the following Tuesday. The giant liter anchored 25 minutes later and 715 passengers and 1,323 bags of mail, were land- ed. The mails were sent forward by Special Train at 7.51 a.m. which arrived at Paddington at 12.36 p.m., and the passengers were con- veyed by four Special Expresses for London at 8.53 a. m., 9.8a.m., 9 24a.m. and 9 33 a.m.; due at Paddington at 1.46 p.m., 2.1 p.m., 2.17 p.m. 2.26 p. m. respectively. The number of passen- gers landed is the largest that disembarked from any one Liner calling at Fishguard and is a striking tribute to the growing popularity of that Port with American passengers. CHEAP YET LUXURIOUS MOTORING.- The Over- land Car business in Europe this year has fir exceeded all previous records. The Overlaud undeniably represents wonderful value at its price of £ 275, including as it does all the most up-to-date points, expected only in' a car cost- ing twice this amount. The electric self-starter and electric lights are but parts of a beautifuliy designed car. The smallest details bear minute examination and criticism and Overland owners throughout the country are constantly writing good tidings and generous praise about their cars. +
