Great Southern Line. ANNUAL RETURNS. KORUMBURRA TO PORT ALBERT. The annual report of the Vic torian Railway Commissioners is just to hand for year ending June 30th, 19H, which shows that the revenue is the highest yet re corded. On the Southern line from Korumburra to Port Albert the revenue showed an increase of upwards of five thousand pounds over that of last year, and for the 12 months ending June 30th, 1914, the line paid better than any previous year since its construction—the returns being a record. The stations showing the largest increase being Alberton and Port Albert; the former being served by the growing township of Yarram and the hill country beyond, whilst the Goodwood timber trade swells the re ceipts at Port Albert. Both Leongatha and Korumburra show an increase over last year, but not equal to the years 1911 and 1912.

DISTRICT NEWS. Fish Creek PLICKERQUAPHS. "The Movlps" gave a bioscope en tertainment here last Wednesday week before a ratlior small houso. The programme presented was de serving of a larger audience, but, possibly, other recent local functions with their consequent pecuniary calls, accounted 'for the paucity in numbers of the amusement-seekers. The first picture projected on the screen was broadly humorous; "Someone Gogs Traveling" depicted an original and more or less attrac tively cheap mode of "excursionis ing," viz., via the nice large interior of a convenient basket. To success fully carry this out, it is necessary for one to carefully conceal one's anatomy In the said receptacle with out attracting vulgar attention and remarks. Other good films were "The Pate of an Indian," An Indif ferent Husband," "The Sick Sister," (most amusing), and "How Fools head obtained the school prize." The' star picture, "An Orphan pf War," was excellent. The themo dealt with the American civil wa...
