IF tradition speaks truly Kiama has never been particularly remarkable for precipitancy. We are a cautious people, as a rule, not to be carried away by every breeze of opinion that blows, or every excitement that stirs the pulse of ordinary folk. In public movements, espoei ally, our modesty or our supineness prevents our taking a leading part. We are content to follow, and to back up a good cause to the best of our ability, and in thus acting, as a rule, we may be adopting the wisest course, But there are circumstances in the lives of communities as of individuals which defy all rule and precedent, and justify, nay demand, a departure from the ordinary line of conduct; Ifoever such circumstances arose we think they were presented in the' form of the fearful calamity which spread desolation and woo in the little mining town ship of Bulli on the 23rd of March last. Simultanoously with the thrill of horror which passed through our little community when we hoard of the colliery explosi...

VA I E TIES. WHAT IS A GENTLEMAN ? WHAT is a gentleman ? Is it a thing Decked with a scarf-pin, a chain, and a ring.

VARIETIES. [Newspaper Article] — Kiama Reporter — 27 April 1887
VARIETIES,. A. woman who was married five months ago has just applied for a judicial separation, on the curious plea that her husband refuses to cut his toenails, which are of inordinate length. She states that she has been scratched by them from "top to toe," Another woman, in Birmingham, summoned her husband for kicking her in his sleep. The case was dismissed, and the husband, finding that he was not obliged to pay the piper, walked ofn, leaving her in pledge for the costs. The following story comes from a school in the M idlands:-The master told the boys to write a short essay on Columbus. The following was sent up by an ambitious essayist: "OColumbus was a man who could make an egg stand on an end without breaking it, The King of Spain said to Columbus, 'Oan you discover America ?' 'Yes,' said Columbus, 'if you will give me a ship.' So Ie had a ship and sailed over the sea in the direction he thought America ought to be found, The sailors quarrelled and said they believed there...
BADGER HUNTING. [Newspaper Article] — Kiama Reporter — 27 April 1887
BADUER HUNTING. A wRITERa (evidently an English one) flr. nishes tho following description of badlg,.r hunting, which we extract from the " Aus Stralian Sportsman" : The numerous pleasures of the chase that fell to tho lot of those who lived about two generations ago may have caused choice sporting spirits to regret that they live at the wrong time, It must have been a glori ous era in the days of Beckflrd when that great master of hunting was able to enjoy foxhunting in a manner not to be surpassed in these days. Hio talks of breaking young hounds on marten cats as if it was only a matter of going out, to find that now extinct animal, The polecat, tlh martan cab, and the wild cat have all gone, and the fox is maintained on sufleranco, whilst the badger and the otter would be extinct, but, as I shall explain, they have means to baffle the full powers of man to destroy, I wonder some of our colonies though do not make up their countries on a model of what England used to be, when the...
