Since a number of readers inquiring for information through the

Travel Bureau have seemed anxious to arrane their own cruise itinerary by ordinary steamship sailings, our Travel section next month will offer suggestions for preparing cruise tours to European ports, Round Britain, &c. Particulars of specially reduced summer steamer fares will also be given. The monthly mailings of the Union Castle Line's Inter- mediate vessels to Antwerp, Rotterdam and Hamburg provide facilities for an unorthodox sea tour which can be both interesting and inexpensive. The return journey occupies 10 to 11 days and costs

12 guineas first class, including rail journey London-Tilbury-London. Even though cargo operations at the ports will at times be in progress, full' meals and accom- modation will be provided. Particulars of shore excursions devised by Travel agencies may be had from the Company.
