A SPOILED ROAD.
The Railroad people have made
their excavations,up the bayou near
Lum station, right across the road
This road is presumably a public
road, and while not travelled
very much, is still used, to some
extent. The excavations made by
the s'eaul shovel, begin right at the
bayou, and run back some hundred
or more yards, making a deep cut
across the road, into which the wa
ter backs up, long before the bayou
e is high enough to interfere with
This ought not to be permitted,
and a complaint to the Police Jury
at their next meeting, would doubt
less cause the matter to be investi
gated and remedied. The railroad
d Co., would just as soon dig right
i- across one of the town streets as
not, if they felt like it. That is
they would not care how much it
