FIRST STATE BANK WILL
ERECT BUILDING AT ONCE.
Idabel, McCurtain County, Oklahoma, Wednesday, March 5, 1919
D. B. Strawn, president of the first
State Bank, of this city, has decided
nfter several weeks of investigation,
that material will be no cheaper for
several years, maybe five or ten years,
and will begin the work of erecting
his new bank building at once. This
Will be a two story structure, with
stone front and will be one of the most
modern buildings in the state. Mr.
the contractors, in various cities, have
advised him not to wait for lower!
prices of material.
Mr. Strawn is one of the closest
calculators in our town and his deci-
sion in this matter has stimulated the
budding prospecis very much and sev-
eral other big biddings under contem-
plation, will be started as soon as the
contractors can get the material on the
ground. No doubt the big department

farmer looking for a farm. We are
rapidly filling up with a splendid cit-
izenry which will make McCurtain
county one of the most popular coun-
ties in the state at an early date.
Liberality nevei killed a town. Ev-
ery public enterprise ought to receive
substantial encouragement. When you
give a dollar towards improving the
town, you do nut throw away your
money, but simply make a good in-
