ALAS! THOSE CHIMES.
TO THE EDITOR.
Sir, —The unfortunate residents of Dunedin—light sleepers in particular—know too well the peculiar ways of the Town Hall clock and those “ sweet bells jangled out of tune and harsh,” Awhile ago there was peace and comfort—the time they were silenced. By the way, could we bribe the councillors to boil the bells down and sell the metal. A bell or two in Upper Rattray street would be the better of a small earthquake, and so save “ making night hideous.” I am, etc., Kati Kati. Dunedin, May 31.
