on South Robinson street. There he |
catered :• the country trade, advertis-
ing extensively in the farming com-
munltle about Oklahoma City, and i
his i rail, ii creased iapldlj it first
he had but <ne clerk, but soon was 1
compelled i add another then an-
other until ilie clerks and customers i
became so numerous in the little !
20x24 room thai l was scarcely pos-
sible to handle the trade at all. This
congestion nece itated a change to
more commodious quarters, which
were selected at 119 West Grand live

ing in the city. This room was large
ugh to accommodate the trade for

was Rt. irt'd by leasing the adjoining !
