At the Depot free pdf Excerpt from At the Depot: A Character Play, in One Act Scene opens with the station agent moving about arranging various objects in the waiting room. The ticket agent enters, goes to his office, removes his hat, and commences a ticking to simulate a telegraph instrument. An occasional ringing as of a telephone is heard while the play proceeds, and this the ticket agent answers.) Station agent. (Yawning.) Good morning. Ticket agent. Good morning, Bill. Here is another day of hurry and worry beginning for me. I am sometimes tempted to think that my work is the most tiresome in the world. Station agent. Well, I'm sure I've felt that way often enough. Ours is a thankless job! Sometimes I'm driven nearly crazy with the foolish questions they ask. One old woman came rushing in here yesterday and fluttered around like a hen with its head off. First thing I knew she grabbed me and says she, Oh! when does my train leave? Tell me, quick! and me not knowing whether she was headed for the North Pole or the Sandwich Islands. Ticket agent. Its fierce, isn't it? And some of them never seem to have the least idea.as to where they want to go. I've even known a man to keep a long line of folks waiting while he asked about every train in and out, and then, bless my soul! If he didn't calmly walk off without buying a ticket for anywhere. Its enough to try the patience of a saint. Station agent. It sure is. I wonder what sort of a crowd we will draw today? This is a busy time of year and there's a good deal of coming and going, so well probably have our hands full. (He turns toward door as Tim the newsboy enters.) Hello, boy! I've been wondering where you were this morning. Bows trade? Tim. (Disgustedly.) Aw, not much good! I've yelled myself hoarse but nobody seems to want a paper. Gee! My hands is cold! I cant hardly hold nothin' in em. This is pretty tough weather on a feller what has to spend most of his time out on a street corner. Don't know what Id do if you fellers didn't let me come in here to warm up. Just thought Id freeze this morning! (Walks up and down a Jew moments rubbing hits hands. Suddenly gives a short laugh.) Guess where I slept last night! The Alhambra? Aw, nix! Guess again! Colonial? Not ferme! Huh! In a dry-goods box over in the alley. It was a big one and full of packin stuff, and say! It was dandy and warm. But I had to dig out early before the cops came around and found me. (Walks to where station agent is seated and holds out a paper.? Want to look over a paper? Station agent. Don't know but what I will, till time to hustle. There's no train out for quite a while. Ticket agent. Any special news? Tim. (Sauntering across to ticket window.) Naw nothin worth mentionin. There sa big robbery up in Chicago. Two guys broke into a jewelry store and got away with$50, 000 worth of diamonds, but them things is common. And there's three murders and four wrecks.
