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.
