The introduction or a conservatory
of music to the people of Shawnee h s
long been wished for by many lovers
of music. It occupies a place In the
citv's affairs, that no other thing can
replace. 1 Its effects for culture and
higher thoughts will le universally
felt. "Music hath ..harms," how true.
Nothing will fver way the multi-
tudes or humanity " ith (i kindlier
pulse. Music has been the expression
which iold the worlit the sentiments
of the great and 'he most lowly. That
the .new conservatory.; nas been well
received is only natural, but perhaps
the people of Shawnee hive, expressed
themselves more eneroufly than the
average persons would. Fcr It Is tile
spirit of the' Fores! City to foster
everything that makes for better-
ment. ,
Prof. Kuhn said: "In all the six-
teen years I have been in America, I
have never seen apportunities to com.
pare with those offered by Shawnee
and Pottawatomie county."

It requires a great amount of luni
her to supply the demands of Shaw-
nee during this great building era.
In fact, the city Is growing so rapidly
that it Is attracting the nttenion ot
tile entire United States. And among
the concerns of the city of Shawnee,
who supply the building material
needed to keep construction work
from begging, uone have tlonc more
than the ,,a\idson-Case Lumber Com-
pany. located at the corner of Ninth
and Beard streets.
No matter how pressing the de-
mand, this establishnnnt is ahvay6
ready with whatever may be needed
in the way of lumber and building
materials. The store shi'ds of the
company are built along the double
deck style, thus making possible th
carrying on and quick handling of an
enormous amount of stock, and, at
the same time, giviug ample oppor-
tunity for the proper keeping of ma-
terials which would deteriorate qui'e
a bit in value were they neglected,

by the Davidson-Case Lumber Coin
pany that brougivt about the locating
or the big industry at Shawnee.
For eleven years the Davidson-Case
Lumber Company has been operating
in Shawnee. During that time, the

of the firm may be classed among

Shawnee of the present.
