To Encourag-e Im-nigrratlon.
The Rock Island System is
! making an effort to encourage
j immigration into C tahona as
to interest capitalists and busi-
ness and professional men in the
In this undertaking it should
have the active co-operation of
every resident, for this reason:
tlio more people there are
Oklahoma, the higher the price
of land will be and the greater
will be the prosperity of every
man and woman in it.
The plan which will be followed
is to publish, in Eastern farm
journals, letters from farmers
and business men who have mado
money by coming to Okla-
homa. Letters should go into
details to the extent of stating
how much money the writer had
when he arrived, what lie did,
what success he has met with
and what ho thinks of that por.
tion of Oklahoma in which he is
located. In order to prepare
such a letter, it is not necessary
that the writer should possess
special qualifications as a literary
man. On the contrary, a plain
straight-forward statement of
facts is of much greater value
than florid descriptions of climat-
ic and other advantages.
Photographs, not of persons,
but of cattle, feed lots, growing
crops, harvesting operations, etc.
can also be used to advantage.
Letters are desired not only
farmers and farmers' wives, but
also from merchants, school
teachers, clergymen—from every
one, in brief, who has a story to
tell and who knows how to tell it.
