Curtis and Orand Building. Somo
Facts Concerning the new Struc
ture, one of the Finest and JMost
Commodious Buildings In tho
City. Arranged to be a Groat
Promenade of Art and the Stock
When Completed to Compote
With any Trade In Texas.
Tho great firo on Austin and Fifth
street last summer which destroyed
two immonso stores and the largest
stock of house furnishing goods and
ono of the largest dry goods in the city
was a great calamity and ono which
will bo long remembered as the great
est fire Waco had ever suffered. Tho
losses wero very heavy and in that re
spect it was a calamity. Eventually
Austin street has bson tho gainer for
where then stood two large but unpre
tentious two ttory buildings now will
stand two three story structures whioh
are grand ornaments to tho struct and
tho city. Tho Curtis building though
yet unfinished Bhows what a noble
bui'ding it is going to be. It is built
after tho most approved modern de
signs combining great solidity with
big show. Tho front of iron zinc a jd
imitation stone with immense plate
glass opening on tho first floor will bo
second to none in tho state and ex
teriority and interiorily tho finish
throughout is in the perfection of
niassiveness and elegance of artistio
finish. Tho building has a frontage
of fifty feet and a depth of one hun
dred and sixty-five feet, and tho three
stories will bo lined for the stook of
goods that will bo carried. This will
mako a surfaoo of twenty-four thou
sand, seven hundred and fifty square
feet devoted to, stoves, grates, mantles,
crookery, tin and granite ware, house
furnishing goods, lamps, brio a bao,
art work and tho ten thousand artioles
whioh go to make up a stook of houso
furnishing goods, as the aisles will be
more than mado up for by tho shelv
ing. Tho interior arrangoment is of new
and latest styles, and something never
seen before All the interior work is
of hard pine finish and on a scale
most elaborate and beautiful. The
arrangemont is suoh as to display the
entire stook, and the aisles will make
a promenade for ladies and gentlemen,
whioh, taken together, will make a
walk of fifteen hundrod feet or
over a quarter of a milo.
It is admirably lighted
whioh is another feature as pleasing as
modern. Whon building and stock
are corapleto it will becomo ono of
tno iavoruo rosoris ior lames, not oniy
for tho purohaso of goods, but also to
exhibit tho grandness of Waco to vis
iting friends. The front of tho lower
floor is all plate glass. Tho rear is
most copiously lighted and from sky
lights in tho center running through
light up all three stories so that it will
bo tho best lighted building in tho
In a new building tho stook will be
entirely new, and when oomplotod
will diBtanco anything in a similar
lino in uontrai Texas. 11 win em
brace everything required to the furn
ishing tho most olegant mansion as
well as tho humblest home. It is al
ready very large and fine, and com
pleted it will be immonso. Curtis &
Orand are doing a fine business now
in spite of tho confusion of tho finish
ing work going on and tho wear aud
tear of removal. In this fine now
storo and tho magnificent business
being oponed up anew every citizen is
interested and will rejoice in tho spec
taclo of Curtis & Orand arising now
and grander from tho ashes of the
disasterouB tno 01 last summer.
Yes, ono hundred and nineteen
Waco people hold deeds to lots in
Coldwator the county seat ol Sherman
county. When I lived in tho Pan
handle a few thousand dollars would
havo paid for overy houso from Wich
ita Falls to Hartley a distance of 250
miles, now millions would not do it.
I met a man a few days ago on my
way from Coldw&ter that was so deep
ly in mourning because he had not
bought property in a county seat in
tho Panhandle when it was cheap
that he would only eat mutton that
como from black snoop. Less than
five years ago nothing but a village
called Wiohita Falls, no railroad now
built through tho Panhandlo soven
hundred miles ending at Dcnvor,
nothing but grass and cattlo roaving
whoro wo find Iowa Park, Harrold
Vernon, Chillicotho, Quanah, Chil
dress. Clarendon, Amarillo, Hartley,
with small towns that now contain in
any ono of thorn moro houses than
was built in that entire country when
I lived there. Tho Panhandlo of
Texas is still in its infancy, ovory lot
in the county soats havo increased in
value more, for amount invested than
any other property in Texas. In
Coldwatcr tho county scat of Sher
man county you oan buy lots now so
cheap that you oannot fail to make
monoy if you invest at presont prices.
Tho Chioago and Book Island R. It.
has ono branch less than seventy
miles from Coldwator northeast,
its destination is south from that
branch to go through Hartley and
tho capital syndicato lands. Remem
ber now that I am selling yon this
property as county seat proporty bo
cause it is tho county seat situatod
in tho middle of the oounty
If Coldwater was a railroad town you
could not buy lots within one blook of
tho court houBO squaro for $10, or a
lot for $15 within 100 foot of $0,000
worth of county improvomonts. You
can do it now. If you can sparo tho
monoy buy at onco at my presont
prices. We are having 00,000 circu
lars printed to carry the news that
Shorman county has millions of acroB
of noli land for sale at $2 an acre, half
of it on forty years time Tho first
payment amounts to fivo cents an
aero, the balance in thirty-nine years.
Aro you surprised tbatjtho people aro
Hooking to tho Panhandlo? County
seat lots at my present prices aro cer
tainly a first-olass investment, promis
ing a muoh larger and quioker return
for amount invested than anything
now offering in the state. Buy now
while you oan at 5, $10, $15, $20,
$25, $30, $10, $50 a lot. If that is
not cheap, what iB?
