A CHANGE OF SURFACE.
The work that is being done be-
tween the S. P. tracks that run on each
side of the depot is not for the pur
pose of laying another switch as
ank and Mn" was misinformed yes-
terday ibut te object is to put on a
surface of hard clay and gravel in-
stead of that of cinders. The same
rhatiee was made in the platform
around the depot a few months ago
and the test proved the clay and grav-
el to make far the best-surface. The
cinders are made into dust more easi
ly and they make a dirty black dust
full of little particles to get into the
eyes of the patrons or the company.
The clay and gravel become packed
and hard uo not get dusty nor muddy
and as the company is looking out for
the accommodation of its patrons it
has decided to change the surface of
all the ground surrounding the depot
Into this kind.
THE T. & P. ARTIST.
M. L. Smith th eT. & P. artist from
Dallas who has been doing some work
here for the company left for home
this morning with his wife who has
been here with him. Mr. Smith proved
his ability by the excellent work on
the T. & P. city office making of it
the finest appearing railroad office in
the state. He also painted several
large and attractive signs for the com-
pany on buildings in different part of
town. He also painted and put up a
giant iron image of a populist dele-
gate on his way to a convention. He
is fifteen feet high and stands at the
junction of the T. & P. and G. H.
tracks east of town. He has his grip
and umbrella in his hand and says
"I reckon 111 take the most poplar
rode" meaning of course the T. & P.
There ia hardly another road in the
United States that advertises their
passenger business as largely as does
the T. & P.

The G. H. passenger train was eight
hours late today and is in the yards as
the paper goes to press. The cause
occurred west of San Antonio. The
S. P. waited until it' arrived before
leaving for the west.
Excursion agent Irvine of Chicago
came in on the T. & P. last night and
went west over the S. P. this evening.

The T. &P. pay car cam ein Thursday
and went out yesterday morning it
came a few days ahead of time on ac-
count of the employes wanting money
for the holidays. It is said that most
of the men had good pay due them
this time because the business of the
road has been so good the last month
that nearly all got to put in good time.
Bob Reed a car cleaner in the T. &
P. car sheds is off duty today on ac-
count of being sick.
Localy the ending of the strike had
little effect. A Herald reporter called
on F. B. Houghton division freight
and passenger agent of the company
and asked what the position of the
company would be towards the strik-
ers. "What strike do you refer to?"
asked Mr. Houghton. "Oh yes I re-

something of a strike on the Santa Fe
