TO THE EDITOR,
Sm,—la your issue of yesterday a correspondent subscribing himself “ Viator” offers to back High street against any other part of the City for the production of “smells.” Well, I am not much of a sport, but I take up his offer without any hesitation, and will lay 1,000 to 1 on that part of Victoria street lying between York place and Cargill street, where—just outside a boarding-house on the right-hand side going up—an aroma hangs around that would, as the Yankee said, “stop a man’s watch.” I am sure our expected visitors to the Exhibition will duly appreciate the odors, and I think it would be a great pity were the inspector of nuisances to interfere and disturb the operations of this “ perfume factory.”—l am, etc., Eau De Cologne. Dunedin, October 9,
