Each of the principal towns was thronged, and shopkeepers, publicans and houses ,of accommodation had an exceed ingly busy time. The railway returns show that more persons travelled on the Frankston-Stony Point line during the holidays than on any other in the State, and the special time table in force was taxed to its utmost to cope with the large number of traveller. It would not have been possible to deal with the increased traffic on the Peninsula lines, particularly at the Frankston station, had the double line.between Frankston and Mordialloc not been available, and the wisdom of the Commissioners in carrying out this work during the year 1910 has been proved most effectively.

As a stranger living down here at present, and a holder of the Royal Life Saving Society medallion and certificate, 1 offer my services as inftructor, free of charge, if any lady or gentleman will form a class, who will be willing to learn this useful lesson. I also wish to advise all that are interested in this work to learn to swim on the back without use of the hands. Your's sincerely, F. FARMER, Young St., Frankston, 2j1 1912
