TO THE EDITOR. Sir,— While going along Cumberland street to the Exhibition I was surprised to see a lot of sheepskins hung out to dry on a section adjoining the railway bridge. The smell arising from these was something abominable, and will, without doubt—if it is not stopped in time—give visitors to the Exhibition a very bad opinion of our city. The Exhibition, under ordinary circumstances, ought to be a great resort for the public, in which to pass away an hour or two in the evening, but when it cannot be got at without encountering numerous smells they will look at it in a very different light. Hoping some abler pen than mine will take the subject up—l am, etc., Scccess. Dunedin, October 7.
