Washout on the Midland

A washout occurred yesterday morning on the Midland, just about a mile outside of Peteboro'. Just here is swamp called the "sink hole," which has given the railway trouble for years. Probably a million feet of lumber have been sunk in it. The melting of the snow is the cause of the present washout, the track being beneath the water. The Midland trains have to go round on the old road by way of Bethany.
