THE NEW NATATORIUM.
Work Progressing Rapidly.
It is now only a question of a
short time when the new and im
posing building of the new nata-t
tonum will add another grand or
nament to Fourth street adding
another impetus to the develop
ment of what seems destined to
be in the near future the princi
pal street of the city. Work on
the artesian well for the new nata
torium on the corner of Fourth
and Mary street is being pushed
night and day. The drill was in
serted in the surface soil on
Wednesday this week and today
at noon was checfully thumping
away two hundred and fifty feet
below the surface in blue slate.
With good luck the well will be
drilled in about fifty days and
work on the building
will be begun at once.
The management of the new nat
atorium by Col. R. B. Parrot
sufficiently insures rapid work and
great results. No one knowing
him but is fully satisfied that the
new natatorium will be a grand
structure and such as to fill the
hearts of Waco people with pride.
The magnitude of the great Prov
ident building located and finish
ed under his auspices is sufficient
guarantee that the new nata"ori
um will be a grand one and the
public is on tip toe of expectation
which will not be disappointed.
