THE CHURCHES.  

CORLETTE MEMORIAL BELLS.    

Improvements have lately been made in the bells of St. John's Church Ashfield. They were   erected some time ago as a memorial to the late rector, the Rev. Canon Corlette, D.D. They are of the hemispherical type and were imported from London. The quality of the bells has been regarded as high, but it was   recognised that the tuneful occupants of the tower were ineffectively arranged owing to the structure of the bell tower. The inside of the tower has, therefore, been rearranged and louvres have been provided in the open arches to control the escaping sound. The upper portion of the bell tower has been turned into a suitably designed bell-chamber with the bells fixed in a horizontal plane. The result of the alterations is regarded by campanologists and those who live within the radius of sound of the bells as being of a satisfactory character, a uniformity of tone and absence of jarring being combined with a clearness of sound and harmonious balance.
