This object is situated in the steeple of the House of the Town Council.
Above the session-room of the Council is the steeple, and in the steeple is the belfry, where exists, and has existed time out of mind, the pride and wonder of the village -- the great clock of the borough of Vondervotteimittiss.

They go to the university to put a mansard roof on their whole general education; but the German student already has his mansard roof, so he goes there to add a steeple
