THE TOWN CLOCK.
TO THE EDITOB. Sir,—l do not know who has the contract for keeping our town clook in order, but whoever it is manages to let the said clock run down, apparently, very frequently. This morning I was coming down to business, as I thought, at eight o'clock, when, according to our notable timepiece, I was an hour and three-quarters before my time. Perhaps the contractor cannot afford to wind up the clock as often as necessary. If so a special rate might be levied to defray the expense of employing an assistant, as it is evident the contractor cannot at present overtake the work. As to the chimes, that they should be kept going properly is too much to expect.—l am, etc., J.W. Dunedin, September 19.
