While we work and while wo Bleep the earth the air the rains and the principle of life are all busied with growth and what we seo are only effects. So with the growth of a city. Wo have seen Waco grow from a vil lage to a city and we see it growing steadily and unoeasmgly and yet we scarcely appreciate those silent intij ences which are the potent factors of that growth. We know in a goucral way that railroads, schools, faotories and other things are elements of growth in a town but we do not stop to analyze. The railroads have been great agenoies of our growth, so have. the great institutions of learning, and the artesian wells not least while the wholesale trado'the woolon mills, and other faotories and many other things must not bo forgotten. The citizens of Waco are not slow to give credit to eacii and all of the silent bat potent agencies whioh are at work to build up the city, and with it their own individual interests, and they have aocorded to the sohools a large degree of approbation. The Baylor University and the Waco Fe male College have been of immense benefit to tho oity, not only in ll"i prestige they have given to tho oity as an educational center, but also in tho foreign money which their hosts of studonts have disbursed hero from year tj year, and which, falling liko other gentle dew, benefits business. But it is a fact in consonanoo with tho idoa at the beginning of this article that another school has grown up here in the last few years, tho importance of whioh is almost out of tho knowl edge of our citizens. Hill's Business College ii well known, but tho size and importince to which it has grown, both to tho proprietor and to tho oity, is .wholly unappreciated. This is due to soveral causes, but it is time our people were informed that while they have been quietly working and Bleeping, an institution of publio benefit has grown up in our midst that is immense and wonderful. It is generally supposed that Commer cial Colleges are schools of smaH mo ment outside of the big cities, and it is generally true, but this is an ex ception that is as noteworthy ai grat ifying. . It may be summed up in tho general remark whioh evidenoe sub stantiates that Waco ha a commer cial oollcgo that onjuys a patronage little, if anything, below the great commercial colleges of national ro putc, and this in a city of twonty thousand inhabitants. Tho fact is n startling one to those not familiar with tho growth of this great school. Hill's Business Collego had, last year, four hundred and twenty students, a visit to tho college today will show over two hundred students actively at work, and tho increase, so far this year, is so great as to lead to the reasonable eonolusion that this college, this year, will not fall short of six hundred students, and may go up to seven hundred. Compare this with the matriculation of other colleges, and it willbe seen that Hill's Business Collego is equal to the largest literary oollcges in the state. It is a great Baylor University on Austin street, with five or six hundred studonts a year, building up tho fortunes of tho proprietor and promising a steady stream of outsiuo money into the arteries of Waco business. For this small army of students is from abroad as tho students of Baylor or tho stu donts of the Waco Female- Collego are. They come from all parts of Texas and not a few from other states. Tho writer is ooeversant with the status and history of commercial ool lcges and regards Hill's Business Collego as phenomenal. Thoro is nothing, and novcr has been, within his knowlodgc, anything like it in a city of twenty thousand pooplo. It is simply prodigious and astonishing. This marvelous growth and proportion of a oommcrcial collego in a town of twenty thousand is susceptible of ex planation. Tho propriotor is a man of eminent business qualifications. Ho is rankod among tho moneyed men of tho city and shrewd and larseeing speculations in real estato ar ovidonce of his business ability. When he fust oponed up tho college hero ho built on a solid foundation. Not content with his then thorough acquaintance with tho business, he spent months in travel, visiting all the great commer cial colleges in tho oountry from the Atlantic to the Paoifio coast. His study of all the appliances of modern commercial mothods was thorough and exbaustivo and tho school he formed was an eclcotio sohool, embracing everything good without regard to ex ponse. Tho result is that in this great business college there is lacking nothing that experience and money has not applied to commercial educa tion. Hill's Business Collego today is the peer of any great commercial oollcges in any of tho great cities from California to New York in currioulum and perhaps in number of studeYits. This article is written that people may properly approoiato a great insti tution which has grown up in our midst almost as quiotly and as unob served as tho great orops grow in the fields. Hill's Business College is a prodigious suoooss and fraught with important consequences to the busi ness of the oity. THE CITIZENS' RAILWAY. The Schedule Changed Back to the Old Standard. The Citizens' Railway company has ohanged tho schedule on tho various beln to tho old standard, that is, on Austin avonuo 13 minutes between ears, on tho University Belt 12 min utes between cars and on Padgitt Park and North Sixth street 12 1-2 minutes betweon ears and on Wash ington street 15 minutes between cars. Tho average rato of speed it less than eight miles an hour, and in trying to give perfect satisfaction the company has found the old sohedulo the most promising. This iB call ed the old schedule because it was adopted when the company first started its olectric service, and was discontinued because of tho complaint that the oars wore running too fast. A change to a slower speed brought still more earnest protest and the company decided to return to the sohodule first adopted. Tho Washington street lino whioh was brought back into use about one week ago, mention of whioh was made in The News at tho time will bo con tinued and a early aB possible a switch will be placed at the corner of Washington and Eighth and the down town oars turned from Washington on Eighth to Austin Avenue and passen gers wishing to go shopping can take a car on Washington and land at most any point desired.

Following is one of many extracts from the leading papers in towns visited by Major Slosson with tho cars: The Knoxville Daily Journal Jan. 4th, spoaking of tho oxhibit says: "The greatest agricultural exhibit, and one whhh has carried off the honors at several state fairs of several states, is an immonse nubbing of corn measuring sixteen inohos in circum ference with thirty-two rows of grains. Several stalks of corn measuring six teen feet may bo scon. Tho distance to tho first ear is ten feet, and in this line is also to bo no ticed wheat of whioh Texas soil yields thirty to thirty-flvo bushels por acrf, oats, rye, barloy and 122 variotios of grains and grasses. In the midst of theso groat rural oxhibits there stands out in fine form a pioturo of some of tho artosian wells at Waco. There aro twenty of these wells at that point, with an averago depth ofl,S40 feet. Waco draws from them daily a supply of twenty fivo million gallons of wator. These wells aro said to have the samo heal ing powers which have made Hot Spriugs, Ark., so far-famed. In tho second car is an immense collection of minoral, stono and wocd exhibits. Among tho minerals are samples of gold, silver, zino, iron, and granito for building purposes. Ono of tho qualities oxhibited oan bo made into pipes without tho pig iron pro cess. The New Birmingham land and iron company has contraoted for a supply ot the iron ore mentioned for a year.
