Fmlr Pr(>4iet«d That Houtk L'Mej vllle Will Mtkn Blgr Town. Bomb Coffej-vlUe, Okla., Nov. 27.— (Special). Vesierday. ThanksRivJng day, waa the biggeRl day In the history of this city and one of the blR- ^st days in the history of Cotrey- Tllle, Kan. The event was the formal opening of this city and hundreds of lavestors were here from all sectlooit of the country, mone than a dozen states being represented. Kansas, Oitlabonia. MlHKuiirt, Nebrasica and Iowa furnishing the largest per cent of the visitors. Besides the hundreds Who wer» here from abroad there -were several thousand people in attendance from this immediate vlcinitj'. The Etchen Brothers, who are the Proprietors of the three companies, the Kansas Land Co., The Big 3 Land Ca, The Etchen Brothers Land Co.. which promoted the new town, chartered a special train on the M. K. 6. T. railroad and transported passengers between South Coffej-ville and Cof- feyrille, Kan., free of charge. This train was mu hourly between the two towns and it was well patronized during thfr entire day. Besides this the street car line was taxed to its fullest capacity In transporting people from the sister city on th« Kansas side of the line to S6uth Coffeyvllle. The opening of South Coffeyvlllp. Okla., marM a new epoch in the history of the Southwest. Never before in Oklahoma wan a town opened to in- reslors with such excellent prospectK for future development. Investors by the hundreds were on the ground and lot seiling ran high. It. requiring an extra effort on the part of the promoters of the new town and their arm}' of osaJstantB to handle the lot sales. MaDX>who came out of curiosity readily ftiiveBted in business or reeldence lots after .they had seen what South Coffeyvllle offered in the way of Investments. Prom the time the new town was flrat advertised a month ago inquiries began to come in from Interested capitalists and from those desiring business and reatdence property, until the advance lot sales greatly exceeded the expectations of the promoters, andiik was found necessary to Shut off the JMile of the lots in this city and In Coffeyrille, Kas., last Mon- dftf until the day of the opening. It waa a great sight to see the hait* dt^fl of eager purchasers hastily viewing the townslte selectiog possibly a business lot or perhaps a rest- deniie location before some early bird had caught the worm, and ever.r train during the entire day brought In more visitors to die city until by the noon hour a verfti^ble army was thronging the streetsTtif the prosperous yonng city. At.noon all those who wished a real feast were given a platter of the fa- motis Oklahoma barbecued beef and buns, free for the asking, and although the supply was large the crowd was ao much be.rond the expectation nf the promoters ihat before all had been fed the supply was exhausted. . There are possibly more individual Inducements to investors in South Coffeyvllle than were ever ottered by one ciiy before. There Is no other town In the entire new state of Oklahoma that has better railroad advan- lages ihan has this city. This alone appeals to manufacturers and wholesalers, bu! another feature of greater importance is the fact that South Coffej-viile has an endless gas supply, being located in the very heart of the great Oklahoma and ICansas gas fields. This gas i.s offered for factory purposes at a small price and (he free factor>' sites which the townslte company offers to manufacturing in.stltu- tlons has apiiealed to them in such a way that a number of large indii.<itrlP8 are Investigating ihe proposition with a view to locating here.' The separate schools for the while and negro children have appealed to many and already it is the result of quite n residence building hnom. Not only are these features, anyone of which would result In South Coffey- Arllle 's future prosperity, appealing to the general pubMc, but there are oih- Style Plus Quality Plus Value is our Rule of Three I OLA'S BEST AND ORBATIgST STORE OurCfoak9nct5uit Section is "1 he Home of Fashion'' $W,000 Worth of RoBdyto^Woar Apparol Will Oo on Solo SatunlBy at Spoolal Roduotlons Such phenomenal values were never before offered so early in the season in Up-to-Date Suits, Costs, Waists and Skirts as we will place tomorrow before the good people of lola and vicinity—all new and desirable merchandise secured by our New York buyer at tremendous price concessions for spot cash from overstocked manufacturei^s.
