Odd Fellows' Hall.

Perhaps Netherton is one of the most public-spirited villages in the district, and the most persevering. Not long since a gas company was formed to supply the place with gas. That has been done, and now another project is on foot, viz., a new Odd Fellows' Hall. This, we understand, originates with the members of a lodge of that order, which is held at the Rose and Crown Inn. The site is already fixed upon, and the works are about to be let by contract. It is hoped the project will be successful while on this subject we may state that Netherton is yet without a church or chapel, but it is expected that this want will, ere long, be supplied by the enterprising inhabitants of this village.
