Bluff Notes.

BREVITIES. I notice a handsome new residence being erected in Barrow street to the order of the Government for the use of our stationmaster. Quite a number of our local amateur wrestling men are very much interested in the rehearsals of our Tom Johnstone, in view of the wrestling match at the Clifton sports. Fish merchants and residents: generally complain of the scarcity of fish, no doubt being due to the variable, weather, no two successive days being alike. Mr McNish informs me that he appreciates very much the many expressions of sympathy conveyed to him on his recent heavy loss by fire, and none more so than the resolution passed by the local brass baud conveying their sympathy. The band intend, on Christmas Eve and New Year’s Eve, doing their usual serenading round, and would es.teem it a favour, should any resiIdents object to being disturbed, to [lodge their objections at once, when [ they may rest assured that their [slumbers will not be disturbed. I have not heard much lately from the Loyal Awarua Lodge of Oddfellows, but it is satisfactory to note that their numbers are steadily increasing, and their good work beI ing successfully carried on. I Though we are a small community, lour business people, generally speakling, seem fairly prosperous. Perhaps I their greatest drawback is. from those [who do not care about paying their [bills, otherwise our business folk are I to be seen mostly with a smile, possibly in anticipation of a good turnover for the holidays.
