WOULDN'T BE SURPRISING.
If you hear the wlrts vibrating
fiom Dallas. Texas, announcing the
coming of the 1911 convention of the
Associated Ad Clubs of America to
Oklahoma City, don't question how it
was done. The local organization
sent such hypnotists as Secretary A.
W McKeand, O. P. Sturm. R. M. Dick-
inson and W. V. Daughdrill to repre-
sent Oklahoma City and the known
pulling qualities o? Mr. McKeand,
backed by the endorsement of better
than 1000 home boosters is endorse-
ment sufficient to land anything that
is landable. Thiugs have to hang high
that an Oklahoma City delegation
don't get if they make up their minds
to land it.
THEY COME IN BUNCHES.
It is nothing to r< ad of a telegi am
to the Ciiamber of Commerce, Okla-
homa City, giving notice of a bunch
of capitalists from near by nnd far-
away cities who are headed Oklahoma
City way. Not a week passes but
records the visit of big men, men of
influence and wealth. Who would won- ,
der at this. That city is yet to see j
tho dawning of a sun which equals j
in marvel Oklahoma City, with ht>r |
cloud kissed sky-scrapers, her hand- i
some boulevards and other notable |
drawing cards. The two packing
plants spending batter than six mil-
lion dollars, and each vieing with the ,
other, ore thine® enough to cause in- ,
vest i gat ion upon the part of inonied j
men Oklahoma City has men whe j
can write and draw their check in |
the seven column line and every cent
of it made right here. It Is conserv-
itively estimated that within the next
few months more than ten million
dollars will be added to Oklahoma j
City's wealth by three men alone
That's driving some. The pace of the |
state's metropolis and opportunity In :
every lino of industry has no equal ;
in the t'nitod States.
