The kalsomining of the interior has all been done and the revarnishing of the benches and wood work will be completed by next Thursday. The painters of course will not work Sunday or Monday. When the depot job is completed they will repaint the water tank. Most of the depot benches were revarnished today and bore the warnings “Wet Paint.”
