PARTICULARS OF OUTWARD, HOMEWARD, AND COASTWISE SERVICES.

On the outward journey the Royal Mail Steamers proceed as far as Durban, at which port they commence the homeward voyage, sailing thence every Sunday ; from East London every Monday ; from Algoa Bay (Port Elizabeth) every Wednesday ; arriving at Cape Town usually on Friday morning, and proceeding thence to Southampton, via Madeira, on the Saturday.

Passengers landing at Madeira may enjoy a very interesting excursion to Terreiro da Lucta by the Mount Railway Company's trains which make the trip in half an hour. Tickets may be obtained from the Purser.

The Mail Service to St. Helena and Ascension is performed by the intermediate Steamers calling at these Islands, Outward and Homeward, every four weeks.

INTERMEDIATE SERVICE -The Intermediate Steamers are dispatched every week from London, calling at Southampton on the following day, and taking Passengers at lower rates than by the Royal Mail Steamers for the Gape Colony, Natal, Lourenço Marques (Delagoa Bay), and Beira. These Steamers proceed alternately via Las Palmas (Grand Canary) and Teneriffe.

There is a regular homeward service by intermediate Steamers from the Cape Ports, Durban, Lourenço Marques, Beira and Mauritius, via Las Palmas or Teneriffe to Southampton, and thence to London. These Intermediate Steamers sometimes call at Plymouth on the homeward voyage.

EAST COAST SERVICE. Every 28 days a Steamer is dispatched from London, calling at Southampton, Gibraltar, Marseilles. Naples and Port Said, proceeding via Suez to Port Sudan, Aden, Mombasa, Zanzibar, Port Amelia, Mozambique, Chinde, Beira, Lourenço Marques and Natal. Both outward and homeward this East Coast Steamer connects at Natal with the Mail Steamer to and from England.

MAURITIUS SERVICE.—There is a direct Steamer between England and Mauritius, calling at Reunion, outward and homeward once a month.

LOBITO BAY. Calls at Lobito Bay are made on the outward and homeward voyage as required.

Owing to the war it has been necessary to make certain alterations in the above services, and particulars of the present sailings can be obtained on application.

RETURN TICKETS.—A reduction off the amount of two Single Fares is made on Return Tickets. Return Tickets are available lor twelve months.

SINGLE TICKETS, RE-BOOKING ALLOWANCE - Passengers who have taken a Single Ticket only from England or South Africa (paying the full single tariff fare thereon), and who return within twelve months from the date of embarkation, will be allowed a reduction of 10 per cent, on the amount of the single journey back, on production of the counterfoil of the first single ticket taken by them.

This concession does not apply to passages Coastwise or to Ports at which the Steamers of the Union-Castle Line do not call.
