When the "guillotine" is workinz, the number of possible divisions on a series of questions is sometimes large, and to an outsider the process of tramping through the lobbies in successive divisions, when the result is a foregone conclusion, might seem to be a waste of time. But the experienced member knows better.

Attendance at an unnecessary division is imputed to him for righteousness, and guillotine nights are useful to him in this way.
The time occupied by a division has recently been somewhat shortened by an improvement of the machinery, but of course such time-saving arrangements, useful as they are, produce no appreciable effect on the congestion of the business of the house.
