"HOME, SWEET HOME." A railway journey very often is a tiresome duty, but such could not be said of the ride on the long, splen didly equipped train that swiftly brought the home comers on Tues day. Well over three hundred ex iles boarded the train at Spencer Ft., and everyone was in high festive mood eagerly looking forward to a happy time in the old town. The secretaries of the Old Boys had very commendably reserved a few com partments for the convenience of re presentatives of the Henty family, of whom several made the journey. A sensation was caused when, as the train was moving from the platform, an elderly Old Boy was seen rushing along the platform, and had it not been for the promptitude of Guard Lear in applying the brakes, Mr. G. Dusting would have been left be hind. Many of the passengers in dulged in singing to pass away the time ; others had a quiet game of bridge, but the majority were busy passing along from compartment to compartment renewing friendships made in the early days of their so journ at Portland. It was found that the exiles were coming from all parts of Australia, and one from as far afield as San Francisco, Cali fornia, U.S.A., in the person of Mrs. Wm. Archibald (nee Eva Barton). Several octogenarians were on the train, and three noticed in a few moments were Mr. Geo. Tytherleigh, Mr. Tom Miller and Mr. Bill Frost. At all the larger stations along the line a fresh lot of ex-Portlanders boarded the train, and these were greeted with rounds of cheers by the Melbournians. Many thousands of trains have pulled into the pier station over the last fifty years, but it may safely be said that Tuesday's special carried the brightest, happiest and most cheerful cargo that had ever been brought to Portland. The exiles are home and happy. The names of those who re turned on board the train were:- Mrs. H. Alexander (nee Jessie Dusting), 63 Creswick St., Foot scray ; Miss Mary Anderson, Dande nong ; Mr. S.
