Railways are the arteries that carry and circulate the life-blood of a nation and the publicity department was originally intended to give nourishment to this system and see that it did not become anæmic. When properly functioning the department ought to be compared with a great doctor attending to the nourishment and growth of the patient.—From the Indian Railway Magazine.page 47
