One night while Mr Alex. Walker was passing by the railway engine sheds he noticed flames issuing therefrom. which he promptly subdued, probably saving many pounds worth of property. The railway department have recognised the act by presenting Mr Walker with a first-class ticket, entitling him to travel over the N.Zi. railways. A revival of interest in matters aquatic has boon created, principally through the efforts of Mr J. Barker. It is possible that the Awarua Boating Club may be represented at the next regatta. It is said that the attendance at the Oddfellows’ social on Wednesday night must constitute a record for the port. In view of gardening operations, the Council are evidently determined this' season to prevent cattle .wandering in the borough. I see by a. recent supplement to the X.Z. Gazette that Mr Fordham 6has received a promotion, and although he has always filled the position of senior clerk, he has now been accorded the official position of such, which also carries with it an increase of salary, and our Bluff friends will congratulate him on a .well-deserved promotion as being- the right man in the right place.
