Alumny Creek is obtaining conveniences of late, which are giving the centre the pro-
minence it deserves. This is one of the oldest localities in the immediate vicinity of Grafton, and the residents have re- cently been bestirring themselves to ob- tain from the various public departments
what they are legitimately entitled to. The latest convenience provided is tele- phone communication, which is now estab- lished with Grafton, and will be found very serviceable. It is in charge of Mrs.
A. H. Wotherspoon, of the public school, and this should be a suitable and central position. There are many occasions that a 'phone message will save a journey of sev- eral miles, in addition to the advantage gained in time, and the latter is money in
the high pressure age in which we live. The residents of Alumny Creek are to be congratulated on being placed in close touch with Grafton and other places con-
nected by the electric wires. Latterly new school buildings have been erected at Alumny Creek. A new public hall is an established fact and a progress association
has been formed, all indicative of pro- gress, and showing that there are some real live residents in the locality.
