Earl Alexander Donaldson I worked for A.L (Jim) Charlton , as a grocery delivery boy , who operated the grocery store just to the right of the town hall . One day with little to do , the Police Chief Bill Trail , asked me if I would like to go up in the tower . The clock had to be wound , so up we went . Quite a venture getting around the bell , and up into the workings . Lanark has never been the same , since the fire of 1959
