and made a haughty and scornful

thero was considerable crowding
around tho part ot tho train reserv
ed for colored folks, a fact which
filled the new comers with deep
and undisguised disgust.

Hectics Around tho Depot.
Tho depot is tho best placo in
town to study human nature. It
is tho center of attraction and tho
coming and going of tho trains aro
marked events in tho history of
each day. Thero will bo found tho
old settler who is making his first
trip by ran and is in mortal terror
of being left, a plentiful sprinkling
of colored folks and n few Mexicans.
Tho drummor is always on hand
and also tho man who has como
down to seo his wifo's kinfolks off
on tho train. As train timo ap
proaches everybody gets restless
and gets to pacing up and down
tho depot platform straining their
eyes meanwhile to catch a glimpse
of tho train. Finally tho Waco
express appears in sight around
tho bend and swiftly approaches
with clanging bell and a cloud of
dust. Slower -and slower it glides
over tho rails until it finally comes
to a stop opposite tho depot. The
first to get off is tho irrepressible
"butcher" with his "Hero's yer
Post, News an' Santono Express."
Next comes tho lordly Con. who
descends with dignity and delibera
tion and goes in tho depot to regis
ter upland got orders. Then comes
the slick shinoy porter with his
stepping box and right at hia heels
comes tho drummer, Bamnlo cases
in hand, folio, red by a wholo lot of
tolKB, "coming a visiting," tho
young man and his girl going to
the next town, tho man who k
stopping over for tho Gonzalez
mixed and Bovcral miscellaneous,
and a few Mexicans and colored
folks. Tho trunks, chicken coops
and other baggage and express is
pitched in, tho mail bags are thrown
on board, tho last letters mailed,
the Con. hunics out and lifts his
hand to tho engineer and shouts
"All aboard." tho engineer pulls
back tho great lever and tho train
glides slowly out. Now comes the
man who always nearly get3 loft.
Ho has been over to get somo ot
that cool beer and has tarried a
moment too long as lie always docs.
Clutching his grip wildly 'in one
band lie files across tho street,
followed by a hundred anxious
eyes. Everybody thinks ho will
get left, as ho strains every muscle
to catch tho hist coach. It is just
beyond bis grasp ho makes A he
roic effort and pots .hold,. of the
railliTgJgeliTSrfoToot upV swings in
space a moment and then, with a
mighty effort he sucoeeds in getting
up, perspiring in ovcry poroandall
out of breath. Then thero is tho
man who always has his head
stuck out of I ho window, looking
up and down the track, and the
pretty girl who is alwavs sitting
by the car window and who looks
it the boy on the platform, kill
ingly, a the train moven out. A
cloud nf dust is all that remains of
tho train and tho crowd adjourns
icrosi the street to tho postoilice to
get tho mail.
