NAROOMA – (From our Correspondent.) Things are looking up at Narooma, extensive additions to J. P. Hyland’s Hotel are in progress, and nearing completion, ready to cope with the heavy demand for accommodation through the forthcoming season. Another step upwards has been reached by the installation of electric lighting plants in both the Narooma Hotel and Ocean House Boarding Establishment, and also at Costin’s Store. This raises our hopes of seeing this little township wholly illuminated by electricity in the future.
Our old friends, Mr. and Mrs. J. Davison, left Narooma on Saturday last for an extensive holiday, both having been in indifferent health for some time. During their absence Mr. and Mrs. Wm. Davison have taken over the boarding establishment.
