ODDFELLOWS' HALL—WHO'S TO BLAME ?

TO *niTi EDITOR.

Sir,— Reading your paper this morning, I was a little amused on seeing the following m connection with lighting the hall "under existing circumstance it is often difficult for anyone m the audience to decipher a programme m the faint light supplied." Now, sir, your paper contains m November, 1888, the following remarks about the'light. "Mr Elstm has lighted the Oddfellows' Hall with a j new patent gas burner, the light from which is sufficient) to thoroughly illuminate the hall; the light is white and soft, and is thrown from the ceiling on to the people below m great brilliancy. The adoption of the new burner is likely to save a heavy gas bill, as one burner is sufficient to light the hall completely." Since then there has been another of the same patent, making double the light. Therefore the gas must be bad or your reporter's eye-sighfc foiling him of late ; which of the two I am not prepared to say. Hoping you will forgive my taking up your space. I am etc., Robert Elston.
