For thirty-three years Albert Haycock of Lichfield, England, has been acting like a CLOCK, and making a comfortable living at this odd occupation.
Seven HOURS a night, seven nights a WEEK, he walks about the grounds of the famous Lichfield Cathedral, calling out the HOUR and the state of the weather. His beat is about 10 miles long, and he likes the nightly chore in spite of his 66 YEARS.
'l'he strange job was created in 1913 when a robber stole something from the cathedral. Haycock, who carries handcuffs, a club and a whistle, but no gun, says there have been no thefts in the third of a CENTURY that he has been guarding the place and sonorously shouting out the TIME, every HOUR on the HOUR.
