BAGPIPE MUSIC.

TO THE EDITOR.

Siß, —Permit me to aay a word or two, not merely by way of criticism or censure, but to point out the impropriety of allowing certain hotelkeepers in the City to perpetuate a practice which, to say the least of it, is becoming an intolerable nuisance to myself and several others in the vicinity. If bagpipe music possesses “charms that soothes the savage breast,” as the natives of the “land of brown heath and shaggy woods ” assert and claim for its soothing influence, I ter one beg to demur to their testimony, and emphatically assert that its music to the majority of civilised people is both discordant and harassing, especially when played within doors. I find that the practice of which my next-door neighbor and myself so bitterly complain is growing so annoying to us that it is high time there was a stop put to it, as it very frequently deprives us of the enjoyment of our much-needed night’s rest. If those soi-disant champion players are so fond of displaying their proficiency in the art, let them do so on the Town Belt or some other secluded spot, and not to the annoyance of people who need rest.—l am, etc., W.G.S. Dunedin, October 28.
