TO THE EDITOR.
Sik,—l should like to draw the attention of the public generally to the danger that besets us in our daily perambulations in the streets of this City, and, for the matter of that, of other cities also at this season of the year. I refer to the danger we are all in of slipping on the numerous pieces of orange peel scattered all along the paths, especially of the side streets. Now this is done through the carelessness and thoughtlessness of children, and I do not think we can remedy this thoughtlessness on their part, as it is but natural to them; but what I wish to point out is that
thoughtful people may avert many au accident by making it a rule never to pass one of these objectionable pieces of orange peel in the streets without throwing It aside int* the road. Cases arc by no means rate of people, especially those advanced in years, slipping down and breaking a limb, or otherwise injuring themselves. The remedy proposed is a simple one, and if carried out will be ofl'ectual.— I am, etc., A.tax. Dunodin, October '24.
