A couple of culverts had been put in some years ago, l and since then both had been decked with railway sleepers.

OUR LETTER BOX. (We do not necessarily identify ourselves with the opinions expressed -by corres pondents). THE SOMERVILLE LAMP AGAIN. TIO THE EDITOR. Sir,-That lamp in Somerville which has caused so much discussion as to who broke it, again lies in ruins. On the previous mishap your corres pondent said it was the hoodlums who did it. A.C.W.-who was evidently in the know- said it was'not, but the contractor, who did it. This the latter denied, and demanded an apology from A.C.W., which I have not yet seen. When tendering his apology to the contractor, A.CW. may as well state how the lamp got broken- this time, and thus relieve the tension the inhabitants feel over this mysterious affair. Yours etc., '"THE BROKEN LAMP," Somerville, 16 1 4 '12.
