The Hampshire-Southern Railroad, which is now out of commission because of floods, has had similar troubles already in a couple of years two or three times before. The cost in each case has been very great. This recalls statements, seemingly well founded, that J Spates Brady, who made the original survey located the road 15 feet higher on an average. N Trapnell, who built it later, it has been said, thought it an entirely unnecessary expense. Mr Brady was entirely familiar from boyhood with the territory traversed by this railroad.
