LAMPETER-LLANDILO RAILWAY. The proposal to make a light railway from Llandilo to Lampetor has advanced a stage since it was last referred to in these columns, and it now requires a definite lead to be given by the Cardiganshire ,County Council and other authorities concerned. The pro- posal has been before the county lor a sufficiently long period for 'those concerned to have made up .heir minds, and there is a greater a.,ipect of the work being carried • out now as part of a general scheme of reconstruction than was the case before the war. The Toute through Pumpsaint is the ony practicable one, and the area which such a line would open up is one which would serve the J industrial districts with produce which is now brought from Englaad and Ireland. The -anthracite mines the most rapidly growing of all the eoal areas—-are adjacemt to the agricul- tural and dairy farms of Cardigan, separated only by a range of hiHs; but owirng to lack of railway facilities the position is similar to what it would fce- if the sen )iniervenedl If the new line were- constructed it wou-Id forge, at once, a link with the Midlands through Swansea and with the north by means of tlie London and North Western Railway. This link would enable tlbe-producer in Cardiganshire to sell at a low price because of the- low railway rate he would be cabled upon to face, and for the import of cattle foods, machinery and nR! that the county requires for its industry of agriculture the saving itr time, and expense would be greot. This scheme is, as stated, in a fair way to be realised provided the County Council take the matter up and force the issue. After alli that may be said of Aberys-fcwyth, • Lampeter is the geographical centrej of the country, avd an adequate train service via Llandilo to Lampeter would cut the county In half and serve both north and south. There are two other schemes which might be given more consideration than has been -expended on them hitherto The first is the extension of the line at Newcastle Emlyn to Cardigan, and the second the construction of a railway from Llandyssul to Newquay. In the cames of these smaller extensions it may be argued that the line to Aberayron is not a financial success; bat that; result is arrived at on the basis ei the actual traffic over the shori v length of line—as a feeder to the main line the Aberayron Branch is of much greater importance, and it is early days even yet to arrive at any conclusion on the financial aspect of branch lines which open up new parts of the Kingdom. Railways pay in the whole There are few lengths ot line which could he shown to pay on the bare traffic which they carry—especially those which like Aberayron have a terminus at one end; but when these small lines .are regarded in their correct per- spective it is clear that the railway .-pystem as a whole makes for -r^fitinnal and rural developments «It is this development that tileI I&Lndilo- fampoter project would Di-ing, and it is this deveiop- ment that rests now in the hands of the County Council to either sequre or to lose.
THE SLATE TRADE. Those who do business in the v slate quarry areas are already ''cognisant of an increase in trade, and of an optimistic outlook on the part of men and employers It is stated on good authority that orders are numerous and that the necessary labor is not forthcoming to produce the quantities required. There is. of,course, a great field opening, before the industry, just as there is, before every industry related to housing and construc- tion but the slate quarries have lost the majority of their skilled workmen, and this is a serious handicap. The blind exodus to South Wales-to be huddled in impure air for six days a week and to live in insanitary brick-boxes for the rest of the time-has denuded the industry of men who, bad they known the real facts, would never have moved from the North. The foolish talk of iClO a week proved too attractive a lie for many of the young men who would have developed into skilled I craftsmen—but there are many who once assured of a fair wage* would return to-morrow. There can be no production without labour, and no labour unless attracted by living conditions and wages comparable with other spheres of labor. To refer to equipment and marketing is a more difficult matter. Two Gov- ernment Commissioners reported recently that there was a real and earnest endeavour on the part of the employers to modernise equip- ment and use labor-saving devices. An important letter appears in this issue from the Oakley Co. on the same point Is it then a fact that appliances are available, or is it that a few quarries are greatly in advance of the others ? I- le marketing method the bescf From some of the advertising matter which has reached this office it is evident that a few quarry man- agers are out for business and are getting it. There is a boom in building coming, and there are business men in the industry ready to seize the opportunity. In Cardiff there are 2 000 men out of work; in Manchester thousands more What an opportunity for the Ministry of Labor to do some- thing besides talk. As a side issue there is the question of the utiliz- ation of the debris These great hills of waste have been a problem for many years, and many have been the schemes for converting them into building slabs paving- stones, etc. This is a scientific matter, but there are scientists out of work, and judging by recent issues there is plenty of capital awaitipg practicable schemes. To the progressive quarry owner there is nothing which stands in the way of having research made and experiments carried out. What do the owners say about it ? If they are content to produce slates only, then the speculator will sooner or later make his ap- pearance- Put cheap, materials are wanted a6\V— not litter po the owners intend tackling thlfl problem or are they content to concentrate on slate production? It is an important question worthy of an answer.
EDITORIAL NOTES. Seaside rCS6falong the West Coast have been excelently served by the Cambrian Railways Company, and the ever increasing number of visitors, as well as the residents who depend on thtft, owe a debt of gratitude to the Company for the efficiency of the rail- way service despite tmugual,diiffcillties The service of express txlains has bean popularly appreciated and showed! that the Company has given attention to the comfort of travellers and to the benefit of the towns served. The amount of extra rressurjf en tie railway was demonstrated by the numerous relief trains which the traffic necessitated iff August The news of the appointment of Dr. Hugh Jones, Dolgelley as a member of the Welsh Consultative Council of the Ministry of Health wilt give satisfaction to all who are acquainted with the pioneer work he has done on behalf of public health. It is due to fife progressive influence and enlightened advocacy tha-, Dol- gelley Rural Council occupies a foremost place among sanitary authorities in WalifiS. He has never failed to advise and urge the need of a determined and active policy ítr providing wholesome water supplies and in improving housing conditions. In his new position he will be able to show superior authorities both the necessities and difficulties of saffitary re- form in rural districts. One of the department of the Ministry of Health is concerned with national salvage, which is of the greatest imporatace at a time when there is so much need for increased production and for restriction of wafite. Local Authorities are being urged to consider the advantages of municipal salvage. Rather tliRji deposit household refuse on tips, oY pass it through destructors. ',he better way appears to be to sort it and dispose of i- by sale. The ordinary tip is too often a menace to public heal'h and a danger to the com- munity. Salvage work during the war has proved its immense possibilities of wealth and usefulness. There is certainly a chance for an enterprising" municipali y to reduce the rates1 by looking after the refuse bins; but in the first iinstance *iheTe is an important lesson to householders as to the exercise-of economy by restricting domestic- waste. As i. liaa btï necessary for farmers and farm labourers to organise in order to safe- guard and prombtff their industrial rights and interests, a«»rieuftrrsl ]"I!l()"'neTS also appear to have found" it rye-msAi-y to form -in organisation. They a>e rrniIT?iig ti-c import- ance of regarding Jl"'e r wv-rsltip of iii.d as a serious and complicated" profession, for which they (require to bé- trainwf instead of having +< entirely on thd a-1 vice of others The disruption of large" estates will n:can a greater revolution in I.e i'l-iustr'al and social life of the country" than- ran yet be appre- ciated. One probability is that the dev^lon. ment of peasant proprietorship will multiply the intricacies of land nationalisation if the question ever recur- ofi" the- political plat- form. Whatever other devel^yvme"t-= mlv take place, it is apparent that 4-lic old system of landlordism is nascing. Landowners can no longer be satisfied iilcsg 11ey also become 1"T1(1 workers. HRvin regard to all coisHe--a._ it is indubitable- that the Tvactical in- forests of owners farmers, and labourers are Upcoming more and mcirts identical in the I r prosperity of agriculture. Ts the Weh National Agricultural Society .e,ill in existence? When the Society was formed the annual show of the North Car- diganshire Agri^irsi Society. which -1 been held for vears v-as Cardiganshire* shows ni-, now held a1, TIIlv- bont and Lianilttr. There is no reason why those two useful shows should not be con- tinued in addition to the renewal of a united show for the whole district at Aberystwyth. Nothing seoms to b known whether the Na'rional Show wil? be revived or not. The revival of local shows after the war has proved that live stock breeding is of paramount, in- terest lo Cardiganshire farmers, as it always has been, and that ".neir vnabated desire is to secure it<* continued imnrov^'nen1. Tt. has been suggested that a county show should be organised. That however would be a new v«n'turf> for which the transport facilities in the. eountv would not be altogether suitable; but for the resumption of the North Cardi- ganshire show at Aberystwyth the organisers would have the ft.dva,nh of pasc, experience and of convenient facilities ctvering an ex- tensive agricultural area. <* As the result of "be fire at Abe-v<<twyth last week a number of considerations readily appealed to public interest. The organisation of the Fire Brigade has been discussed and Ti«iV>rs h«ve made unfa.ronra.ble comments. While visitors br,re overlooked th" impossi- b:iitv of a comparatively small town like Aber- ystwyth possessing fire-fighting mnehinery of he capacit-v and magnitude of large prpulous centres, it is no use b'inkin? the fact that, the Town Council has allowed the Brigade V> suffer both In regard to deficient appliances fT)d inadequate membership. We hope the Town Council will now be stirred to improve equipment and stiriplement the efficiency of the Brigade. Considering that the fire- »r>en worked under disadvantages and have been organised on a voluntary basis, they are 0
SENSATIONAL RUMOURS. IS THERE A VICTIM? The demolition of the ruins of the Waterloo Hydro Aberystwyth, was commenced on Mon- day under the supervision of Mr. Joseph Humphreys, North-parade. The work has been proceeded wi h in a skilful manner and watched by numerous spectators. The right of way through Terrace-road was resumed for pedestrians on Tuesday. Various sensational rumours were circula'ed during the week-end. One of them gained reliance on Saturday by the arrival of a re- presentative of the family to make inquiries concerning a visi or named Miss Cheadae, pro- prietress of a drapery establishmen j at Heath Town Wolverhampton. Though it is hoped that the fears will prove groundless, there is every reason to fear she has not escaped. Miss Cheadle arrived at the Hotel on August 21st and booked a room. It. is understood thaj the room she occupied was at the top of the eastern corner, near the bedroom from which Mr. Bennett, of Shrewsbury, was rescued. Her relatives received a postcard from Miss Cheadle stating that she was stay- ing at the Hotel, but since the fire, nothing appears to have been heard of her. She was sixty-five years of age and in delicatte health. It is pre-sumed that she fainted on hearing the alarm.
WAS IT MISS CHEADLE? Mr. Manuol Jones, tenor vocalist writes to the "South Wales News"—Sir,—Oa one or two day at the Hydro prior to the disastrous fire I saw a lady about 65 years of age, who ap- peared to be friendless? After the fire, when most of us had been kindly shepherded to the tJie Betlle Vue Hotel, I again saw her and assisted her up the stairs and on to the first landing. I concluded she had been provided with a bedroom for I did not see her after, wards. She was then clad orjy in her night attire, coveretd with a dark cloak, and still wearing her night head-dross. I may add Mr MulHnar and I occupied a room on the top floor. It was fully 25 min. utes after the alarm was given that the noises in the street below aroused us. We were in the corridor on two occasions, but did not hear anvoiie in distress.
LEFT 3N TUESDAY Full inquiries were made by the "Cambrian News" up to mid-day c-n Thursday with a view to solving the mystery but without success. So far as the police are concerned no massage oii any sort has been received although the Staff- ordshire police are in close tough with the lady's homet Considering the violence of the fire and the fact that it continued under the ruins for several days it is highly improbable that any bones will be found if the worst has happened. On Thursday afternoon it was rumoured that a visitor staying in New-street had received news from Miss Cheadle and that she left on the day fofcowing the fire, having lost her luggage and a quantity of jewellery. This visitor, however, was found to be away for th day and it was impossible to verify the state- ment BRAVERY RECOGNISED. An interesting sequel to the Waterloo fire took place on Thursday evening, when Mr. John Thomas, Edleston House, Queen's-road, was presented with a gold watch and chain in recognition of his bravo deed in ascending a ladder to rescue Mr. Bennett, of Shrewsbury, who was imprisoned in one of the top room&. was Present at the gathering. The presentation, which had been organised and subscribed by visitors, was made in the Lounge of the Belle Vue Hotel. Mr Deakin, of Shrewsbury, presided and said he was particularly grateful for the brave deed be- cause Mr. Thomas was .a fellow townsman He did not know how it was possible to have a.ccccnplu-.hjyl that noble deed, for he saw there wa.g a uirnac £ It w c) iill have been a diastrous thing for Aberystwyth as a popular seaside resort had one of the hves been lost in terrible conflagration. Mr. fhoiiiAs was not large of stature and did nOt look sirOng, but his deed proved the stuff he was niacin of and a3 had been remarked by a visitor, "lie is the sort of fellow who won the war for us/' (Cheers). The presentation was handed over by the Mayor who expressed his pleasure in doiti^ sot. He congratulated the recipient cn behalf of lii.s native t6w», (Cheers). Mr. Thomag who wofe his naval iiniform and was received with rotifsds of cheering, suitably responded. He had: not ipectea to hear tny more about what he had done, but was pletf-ied that his deed was appreciated. A vote of thanks to the Mayor was acceded to the Mayor on the proposition of Mr. Edwft.r.de., the "pro. prietor, seconded by Mr. Ward Thomas, Aber. ystwyth, after which the NationdS Anthem Waa sun?. » BOY'S PLUCK. A Malvern College boy named Oscar Lent distinguished himself by his presence of miiVd. Rtigardless of his own safety, he aroii'sed his mother and his three sisters and rescued his younger brother, afterwards arousing ótheti visitors. BENEFIT CONCERT. A benefit concert was given in the Parish. Hatft inn Friday evqaing by tho Rheidol United Choir in aid of the staff of the Hydro Hotel who; had lost all their belongings.

Those who were unwilling >bat the right of way through Ter- rH.0. "oa.r1 t., t^e front waA to be storied could console themselves on reflection UtaL, the public safety required protection. It is for -41le responsible authorities to decide whether the perpendicular ruins should have been allowed to remain so long; but possibly they wished to prevent the indulgence of morbid curiosi'y. If some foolhardy persons had their way they would have risked danger in order to search the debris, perhaps, merely for the sake of doing so. The diversion of traffic from Terrace-road, as well as the exten- Fiv, use made of ihe steps from Crynfryn- j buildings, and of the parage from Queen's- I road, have emphasised the necessity for de- sirable entrances to the Promenade. Another consideration is ',hat when the time GOmes for reconstruction there will be an opportunity for tho Corporation to widen the Promenade end of Terrace-road to meet the increasing demands of summer traffic.
Aberystwyth Sessions. MILK AND WHISKY CASES. Wednesday before Peter Jones, T Doughton, Edwin Morris and Griffith Jones' Bsqrs. The license of the Lion Hotel was on the application of Mr Rufus Williams transferred to Mr T. Craven. Peter Jones, Pont Uanio, was summoned bv Supt. Phillips for havincr sold milk deficient A1!, ""i s°]ldB io tlle extent of 15 per cent. At defendant's request a sample was taken from the cows in the presence of the police which was shown to be genuine.—Mr W P Owen cicifended.Supt. Phillips gave evidence and agreed that neither of the samples could be described as rich milk. R. Ellis milk vencjor, Tarraoe»rdad corroborated tl>e \ovid enoe of Supb. Phillips as to taking the samples from a milk can at the station on July 31st. llr W. P. Owen said he wa3 rather »ur„ prised at the way the case was pi-esented.- Supt. Phillips asked to recall Mr Ellis and the Bench agreed. Mr Ellis then stated that he bought all the milk produced by defendant — Cross-examined: The can wa." unlocked, wheft delivered and he had had occasion to complain of a &hortaga of milk when the cans arrived at Aberystwyth. Mr Owen submitted that thpre -was no sale that day to the prejudice of Mr Ellis because the latter had sold all the milk. On the day of tLe alleged offence de- fendant was ill in bed and left the milking tO. two servants. Defendant did not makn anfc bother; and, havincr regard bo the fact that I people did lose goods and that the aiilk was short on the railway ho a»ked the Bench to say there was no case. He did, not say that anybody on the railway had taken the milk in this cas<\ but it was a curious thing .9 t-hat Mr Ellis had had reason to complain before and after the alleged offence of gome- thing having been extracted from the Can*. -Margaret Ann Jona3 said she had been in the service of defendant for ten years. She milked the cows on the morjing and poured the milk into the cans to go to Aberysfc. wyth. No water was added and the milk was sent to Aberystwyth in the same condition as it came from the cows.—Moses Thomas fellow servant of the previous witness, who had been eleven years in defendant's employ, said the milk was as it came from the cows. — The Betnch dismissed the summons. Evan Daniel High.street, was summoned by Supt. D. Phillips for having been drunk and disorderly on Marine Terrace on August 30th.—Defendant's wifon appeared and said her husband had gone to Holyhead with her little boy.-Tlie Bench adjourned the hearing. i William Morgan, 5, Groesi Gardens warf summoned by Inspector Wiseman R.S.P.C.A., for cruelty to a horse by working it in an unfit on August 28th. Hugh Jones, the owner of the horse was chargrd with having cauieo, the horse to be workcS. Mr W. P. Oweft clefended.-Tlie Inspector said he examined the two horseg driven by defendant in a charabanc which was partly filled with passengers. On the off shoulder ho found an old wound two inehes in diameter which was much inflamed and tender. Matter was coming from the wounds. There was a smaller wound on the same sbouldcsr. The collar was pressing on both wounds. On the near shoulder there was also a 2! inch wound.—Cross-examined The horse was in good bodily condition.—The In- spector said he spoke to Hugh Jones who said had he known the state of the horse he would not have sent it out.—P.S. Davies said he could corroborate.—Mr Owein said there was no dispute as to the facts.—Hugh Jones w called and said he had over 20 horses working, and one man had charge of two horses only. The previous rright he told the man to pad the ooIlar.-The Bench said they considered the case provetf and fmed defendants 85e1 each. Evan Harding wine and spirit merchant, wag charged by John Evans, food control! officer, with having sold whisky contrary to Act 13 of the Spirits (Prices and Descripifion), Order, 1919 on August 2nd.-Mr W. P. O.Wen- appeared for the prosecution.—Mr John Evans executive officer, put in the resolution of the Ceiomittee instructing proceedings to be taken in all cases. Cuinton Percy Scott, divisional inspector Ministry of Food, Cardiff, said he went into the public bar and saw defendant's wifo and arsked 'for a glass cf whisky; asked the price and) she replied 6; Witness then told her he was an inapectoi- when she took up the glass and was-taking it away. To prevent her doing so he took bol f.t liar arm just abore the wrist and said "You must not take that away." He meas. ured the whisky and found it to be one-fifth of a gill. He asked what whisky it was and she replied "bulk whisky, 35 under proof." He tol4 her the whisky should have belen 5d-; not 6d. She said "I made a mistake in the measure; but you need not havo hurt my arm She then requested witness to see her bust )and who was ill in bed and she did so.— Witt -/ess was cross-examined by Mr Harding as to th e meaning of bulk whisky and was told he di i not know anything about it.Annie Hardi, ig, wife of the defendant said when the In. ;pector spoke to her she found she had Midn i he wrong measure and was picking up the eilat 3 to give the proper measure when the ffiSBectd r caught hold of her arm and swung Wmut d and 6omo of the whisky w# (t told her husband what the Inspector had dofi £ The Inspector was charged m Mrs Hardtoe with having assaulted her oft that day and it was agreed to take the evidence already Bl ibmitted as, dealing also with t^e charg-e — Mr Hardine said every man had a rurht to d* 'fend his wife.-Mr Owen said the lii;pe 3 Tas entitled to taxe a specimen UL the whisfey and there was an attempt t» pre- vent hijW 'ft. — The Bench decided to lieS-r otlior" « barges of a similar character and the Ssc ai irfst Edward LleweWm, Ocntral wie case 0_The Inspector said he iliS -Wa%i bar of' the Central Hotel and rikid' MU i, barmaid, 6d. for a glass of iiuHi? hisky was measured and found of I gill.

POINTS OF VIEW. By J.M.H. THE C.E.C. AND'THE TEACHER. Teachers should strive to realise that county councillors who step outside the orbit of tiie average voter will soon find himself extin- guished like a comet in space. Teachers should assist county councillors in guished like a comet in space. Teachers should assist county councillors in the duty of improving their liaancial position by determining to become (whether born to j it or not) p^oticien, teachers. There arc born- J teachers, and made teachers, just as thers: are born preachers and made preachers. Teachers who are not teachers should exerd themselves to become teachers, or at least to cultivaoto supplementary accomplishments. The Cardi is j by nature prudent, stingy, canny. He has never led the way since I am county council- ior, and that is a long time, with deeds of benevolence and magnanimity for teachers or police constables or roadmen. He police constables or roadmen. He asks what other people are doing, and follows at a respectful dis- tance. No one knows the worth Md service of education better than he does, but he is not willing to pay for it in cash. There are county councillors who thrive by hmnouring the chary, peddling, niggardly, penny wise proclivities of the Cardi's normal character. .The teachers, too, are ma.in.y Cartiisy and they should therefore be able to enter- into all the intricacies and diihculties of the Ca*di s I mental components. Teaching has become a profession if act preaching. A man enters into training, he is projected at the other end of the machine, a finished article. Then the article turns round to tluJ maker (the simile here becomes mixed) and addresses him saying "You have made me- you must find something for me to do and you must pay me honourably, not according to my own merits, but acoording to the merits of the order to which I belong." And if the maker cannot see, there emerges from the shadow a sinister figure with a foreboding faco known as N.U.T., Pointing with its finger the way. Mdn and women in early years have to choose whether they go in for ruling or serv- ing- -,i- In either there are felicities and pena.ties In neither is there the celestial contentment which each one of us looked on to as our rightful heritage. There is a good deal in Satan s view (accord- ing to Milton1)— "It is better to reign m hell Than serve in heaven." That may be taken as the relative positions of a councillor and teacher when one is tor mented and the other is not rewarded accord- ing to his self-assessed merits. It requires a;) itlie heroism of thc teacher to suppress hir> so-if, when earth and the stars, even without the N U.T. are winding him up to a place among" the gods, a prospect far surpassing his wildest dreams when he began his course a pupil teacher at S6 pof annum. The teacher has the rare opportunity uf being great in the essential and absolute sense— "A fyno fod yn fawr byddod weimdog » chwi." And, again, it should be admitted that there has not been a profession where an assured, if not a living wage was to be achieved at a less expenditure of mentsE and financial capital.. and financial capital. There are thousands of Cardiganshire people who think a teacher's position it one «t leisured well-paid-ease. There is that outlook, from the point of view of the unmindful rustic,, ami of the vu ''TheyTum up the teacher's duties days in a week, six hours in a day, andten r^rmfVic in a vear, and none of it work.

Or as in our own Sunday School, with the object in view of giving every class the advantage of being privileged to have, m turn, the services of the very best of the teachers available. cfato Teachers use the argumentr- but the State bears one half the financial burdens. The answer is that a very large proportion of the ratepayers are taxpayers too. It is time for teachers to meet to discuss, not how to force up their salaries to the top level etc., but also to find out how to assist county councillors to persuade the ratepayers that they richly deserve to be paid the upper prices in accordance with the applica- tion of the letter received from a N.U.I. There are other subjects of national inter- est to the teacher a.nd ratepayer which might be discussed, such as (a) how may a teacher serve his school outside the school? (b) Is teaching a child good enough work for a well- trained intellect? (c) How may a teacher refresh and renew his energies? (d) would a nomadic life be am idea? life for us? (e) What should the C.E.C do for teachers beyond handling the instruments to cut out salaries, etc., etc., etc.? If I had the privilege to take part in the discussion of (d) proposition, I think I would say "yes." An eternity of life in one particular spot because one happened to step on to it long long ago with one particular set of relation- ships which may mean misery to the teacher, and may prove to be prejudicial to many, is not exactly the Arcadia which Err. educated and sensitive man wou:d choose if I had to suess.

Talybont Show. BEST HORSES IN CARDIGANSHIRE. The annual show of Ta'.ybont and North Cardigansiiire AgnculturaJ ^society was held on Wednesday whe» it reached its majority of twenty-one years. Suspended since 1^16 when it was held in aid- of the Red Cross Society), the show seemed too have acquired renewed vigour and in many respects was equal to any previous show at its highest point. In fact, the number of entries constituted a record and exceeded anticipations. There was also a record attendant. Fortunately the rain kept off until the eJIQ and an enjoyable day was spent by visitors; atnd farmers living between tha Llyfuant and Rheddol.

ASLEEP IN THE DEEP. The life &f the diver is to most of us tL. hidden book. but accorJing to a eea-captain who has had much experience of divers, these deep-sea explorers have a fondness for sleeping under water. "In the Mediter- ranean* for instance," he says, "the prac- tice is not at all unoommon. I once de~ ecended myself to visit a wreck on whiell divers were engaged, and there found several of them comfortably snoozing in the cabins! They prefer to get inside the wreck when they want a nap, because there is then no danger from ground sharks. It if hard on the employers, because the divert are paid by the hour, and get very high wages. Diving appliances are eo perfect nowadays, that in spite of its risks it ii fascinating work, and there is something about it, too, that makes a submarine naj quite a luxury. There is & soft, undulatinj motion under water that, with the perfee quiet, is most isoothing." I
