Handiome Interior. -
One cannot gain an accurate con
ception of .the thoroughly up-to-date
completeness of the interior of tb
new depot .without having seen it.
The arrangement, as heretofore de
scribed, includes, on the ground floor,
the general waiting room at the west
with the baggage room at the west
connected by a corridor. Between
them cn the south are the ticket office,
smoking room and gentlemen's toilet
room. On the north are the ladies1
retiring and toilet rooms. The stair
way leads from the corridor below to
one above, ua tne soutnare jur.
Mack's offices, while on the north, be
ginning at the west, are Mr. De
Poland's office, the conductors' room,
with lockers, and the telegraph room.
At the rear are the local freight offices
with a private office for Mr. Young.
The finish throughout and all the
furniture are of solid oak. Even the
ceilings in the waiting rooms are of
oak panels. The floors below are of
tile and above of . maple. The walls
on tne lower . floor arc of green and
white tile. The heating is effected by
the hot water system. Ech office
has a telephone and is connected with
the switchboard in the . car clerk's
office. The system was installed by
the Central Union Telephone com
pany, tint belongs to the road. A
private wire will connect with the
roundhouse and there will be two
wires to the Central Union exchange.
Third Floor for Records.
The third floor is reached by a
stairway . from- the central corridor
and is fitted up to contain the perma
nent records of the company. A stair
way from the local offices on the sec-
ond floor leads back into the furnace
room, between the main building and
the freight house, where the heating
apparatus is placed on the ground
Seen from the landing on the stairs
the interior of the long freight house
presents a very attractive appearance.
The roof is supported by long rows of
strong braces, all of which, with the
walls, are painted white. The offices j
for the foreman and clerks are along
the south walls. '
The efforts of Division Agent Mack
and his assistants will be devoted
from now on to getting everything In
shipshape for the best appearance
possible when the public will be in
vited to inspect the building next
Old BaUd:r to Go.
' The old depot presents a' decidedly
forlorn and dejected appearance, as
might be expected, upon its uncere
monious desertion after 38 years of
usefulness. . It was originally con
structed by the Rockford, Rock Island
& St. Louis road and was ued by that
company till its affairs went into the
hands of a receiver in 1S79. Then
the C, B. ct Q bought the structure
and has used it ever since. The old
building will now., be torn down and
its site used for track room.

Falls Between Cars.
. Frank, on noticing the approach
of the car, walked out to the side of

man to slow up for him, but of course
the car was not stopped, the man' at

that he would bo obliged to wait for
the next car, as the one he was run
ning wa9 a special, and was so desig
nated by the customary sigu on the
As near as the facts can be ascer
tained, Frank made a lunge for the
hand hold of the rear platform of the
motor, and, missing it, pitched head
long between the motor and the flat
car. In the doubling up of his body
his neck was broken, the wheels

It is claimed by street car em

Sodden Termination of Important Trial
by Judge Gest.
The famous Drury will case of Gar-
dcnplain was abrnptly terminated last
week bv Judge Gest in the circuit
court at Morrison. Richard Drury
of Gardenplain left an estate of about
twenty-five . thousand dollars to his
grandchildren and their heirs, com
pletely ignaring his . children, who
brought suit contesting the provisions
of the will, claiming .that Mr. Drury
was of unsound mind when be cxe
catcd the instrument When Mr
Stockiue arose to speak for the de
fendants, Judge Gest brought the suit
to a termination by stating that,
after carefully weighing the evidence
in the case and listening to the argu
ments of the attorneys, he was con
vinced that in case the jurv should
bring in a verdict for the plaintiffs, it
would be his duty to set aside such
verdict which would make necessary a
new trial. Hence, he would instruct
the iurv to bring in a verdict for the
defendants, thus sustaining the . pro
visions of the will.

The fire department was called upon
yesterday to clear the snow from the

dered the snow soft and started ava

limbs of children playing beneath.
