Some indignation has been aroused in a town in Central Otago through a clergyman neglecting to attend at a burial ceremony, .after consenting to do so. A painful half-hour was passed at the grave by the mourners waitingfor him, still he did not appear. Someone was sent in search of him, but he conkl not be found, and at least another halfhour went by before a lay reader could be procured to go through the ceremony. At the time the minister should have been conducting the service, he was seen by several riding leisurely to the post for his letters. This it is said is not the first time this man has wantonly neglected a similar duty, and it is hoped that his conduct may be thoroughly enquired into by those in authority.
