Bluff Notes.

SHIPPING. Our shipping movements are again brisk this week, beginning with the arrival of the Maheno, on Monday, followed by the Mokoia on Tuesday. It is now over two years since we saw the Mo'koia. The ocean tramps, Maori and Delphic, are also in port, the Maori discharging a large Home cargo, and working night and day shifts. The coastal steamers Rinm and .Ripple also came in—the latter to coal the s.s. Maori, and the former with a cargo of coal for shore. At the time of writing the Italian barque Stefano is still under arrest. She looks rather weatherbeaten after her long voyage of 12 months, and the crew look much the same. AN ENTERPRISING BUTCHER. I had the pleasure of being shown through Messrs W. H. .Johnston and Coes butchefiV, at the back part of which is installed ait up-to-date machine for cutting up meat. The motive power is derived from a two h.p. Hercules oil engine, and the machine is capable of cutting up over 200 pounds of meat per hour. Mr Johnston is making a specialty of small goods, and he informs me that he believes the mat-hint is the first of its kind in N.Z. A VETER..tX^ODDFELLO'W. At the meeting- of the Loyal Avarua Lodge, M.U., 1.0.0. F., on Monday evening, a pleasant hour was spent with Di.st. Treasurer P.P.G.M. liro. T. Findlay, and much valuable information was gleaned. As an inducement to young members Bro. Findlay mentioned that he had held office for the last 40 years, and was not tired yet. One candidate was initiated, Bro- Findlay acting as G.M., and two more candidates were proposed. HELPING THE BAND. The Naval Band have much pleasure in acknowledging receipt of a cheque from Mr W. Hinchey. This is the second donation in aid ’ of the funds for the present year. ARTS AND CRAFTS. The technical classes are now established. and pupils are being enrolled. The classes will probably be in full swing next week.
