Exchanges Transfer Business for
Valuable City Property and
Will Erect at Once Big Brick
Yesterday Mose - Weinberger,
through M. Luther West, the real es-
tate man, traded his big transfer busi-
ness to W. R. Paulson for the three
lots and frame livery building just
west of Trabands, on East Oklahoma
avenue. The real estate was valued
at $15,000. Paulson bought it two
years ago for $11,000. It is considered
a bargain now at $15,000. Mose trans-
fers only his teams, wagons and
transfer out-fit. He retains the big
storage building, which he bought
some time ago. .
Mose says he will erect a big brick
building soon on the Pau'.son lots. He
owns a lot of Guthrie real estate and
has faith that Guthrie will steadily
grow and make a fine city. —The best
in the state.
