: What is the meaning of "Home Chimes"?
: It was a name of a 19th century magazine published in England. Why would a magazine be called by such a name?

: Thanks a lot.

Did this information come through your eyes or your ears? There's a saying "Home, James, and don't spare the horses" (imaginary situation: upper-class gentleman commanding his carriage driver). In some accents, James and chimes sound similar.
