Such a suit would certainly bring about a nice alate of af fairs. In undertaking to recover damage« from the Canal Co. tbe R. R. Co. must prove that tbe diaaater was not the result of an (ct of Providence, but such an accident aa plight, by reasonable care, hare been presented.

Nothing ia eaaic; tba« to predict a reault after the reault has happened, and there are a great many per cods who invariably say: "I told you 10 ; I knew how it would be," Ae. Now we do dot believe that anybody ever antiei patsd auch n disaster as the recent flood, or had any idea of tha damags that aueb a flood would occasion.
