Tho now Passenger Depot of the
The now passenger depot of tho
Cotton licit railroad at tho cornor of
Third and Mary Htrcct is so far com
pleted as to give a fair idea of what
nu ornament it is going to bo to that
part of tho city. Tho stylo of arohi
tccturo is most ploasing, and, being
built of brick, gives it a sonse of dura
bility and permanence Tho struct-
uro is one hundred and six feot in
length and eighteen foot wido, making
a capacity for publio accommoda
tion lor years to come. It will in
clude a lady's waiting Toom, facing
Third stroot, tuuty-two y tlurty-two,
and a gcntlomcn's waiting room, thirty
two -by thirty-two. and a bacRtRO room
nineteen by thirty-two, with abundant
room for couiuiodius oraocs appurte
nant. Tho ' building has an ornamental
slate roof with highly ornamental and
imposing towers, nnd from the contcr
of tho building rises a beautiful flag
polo for decorative purposes. Tho
cost of tho building complete will bo
oight thousand dollars, tho brick work
costing two thousand, tho frame and
glass work three thousand . and tho
slate roof ono thousand. Tho depot
will uo surrounded on an sides by
wido concrete pavement, and will bo
throughout a thing of beauty and a
Next U the depot building a new
building is -being erected of brick, two
storios high. Tho upper part will bo
used for n hotel and tho aown stairs
for stores, all of which have, wo under
stand, boon rented in advance. Theso
building will cluster business about a
locality heretoloro but Uttlo utilizod,
and niako that part of Third stroot,
which for five years has been sitting

Bstelle Clayton In Waoo.
Last night Miss Estcllo Clayton ap
peared at Tho Garland opera houso in
her own adaptation of lthoda Brough
ton's well known novel "Good Byo,
Sweetheart," which was produced un
der tho titloof a "Sad Coquette"
Much has been heard of her beauty
and talent, but it is safo to say that
no ono who was present last night,
and tho audionco was mado up of tho
best society of Waco, was in any way
disappointed, whilo tho general opin
ion wur one of surprise and dolight at
tho unexpected excellonco of tho per
formance. "A Sad Conuetto" is a
J charming play. It deals in no horse
play und has a sad ending, but it is re
lieved by many cxcclTont comedy
scenes, which wcro received with
much lauchtor last night. Tho char
acter of Lonora Mcrritt, as portrayed
by Miss Llayton, is a very strong ono,
It depicts a gay and rather heartless
flirt, who ultimately firids her fato in
tho porson ot ruul Mortimer, but,
through a scries of mistakes, thoy aro
parted, and she dies ot consumption,
presumably induced by a broken heart.
The transition from tho gay coquotto
to tho heart broken and dying woman
is a task that no other actress would
dare attempt, but Miss Clayton no
quits hersolt in a manner that provos
how great an artist alio is. Although
sha was suffering last night from
cold that mado it an offort for her to
speak, the audience followed her words,
mingling laughter with tears, until
the fall ot tho curtain. The support
ing company was excellent.
To-night Miss Clayton will appoar
in a play founded upon Ainclie Ktvos
famous story, "Tho Quick or Tho
Dead." .Nothing of lato years has
created suoh a sensation as this work,
and Miss Clayton's portrayal of tho
heroine has been pronounced by tho
authoress as perfcot. As this will bo
her last appearance in Waoo, a largo
attendanco is cortam, and thoio wish
ing good seats should apply early.
