The new Santa Fe station is happy on the way. And, she will be a daisy. Blueprints were in the hands of local agent F.H. Stanton the latter part of last week and they were good to look upon.

The building will be between 150 and 185 feet long and will be built of brick with stone trimmings, tile roof and all that sort of thing.
