For A Brick Depot.
Last week this paper told its
many readers that a Frisco depot
for Foyil was a "sure taring."
The croaker was abroad in the
land, as usual, and <aid that it was
"another of Bill Harper's windies."'
In the )ight of later developments
we feel somewhat)flattered.
Since our last issue building
material for said depot has been
aVriviug aiaiost daily. Two car of
brick/ are now on the track; 700
feet of Maple flloonu^, several rolls
of felt roofiug and ueccjssary gut-
tering for the r<iof as well as vari-
ous office fixtures have already ar-
rived, and it is expected that tbfe
building will begin to assume tangi-
ble form at an early date..
Fronn the best information attain-
able is that it will be a pressed
brick structure 18x42 feet—three
rooms. An office in the middle with
waiting room at one end and freight
Warehouse at the other with a i2x
joo foot platform. It will be loca
ted ai or near the site of the
"shack" which for over two yeats
has been used as a combination of-
fice, Waiting room and warehouse.
Our peo.ple have waited long and
patiently tor this recognition from
the R. R people, and are bighfy
elated over the assurance that we
are to have a Real depot In our

tide was compiled by rf young law-
year,, of our city, who has made a
careful study of the question, atd
presents in a brief but comprehen-
sive form, the vital points of the
Oklahoma stock law. We suggest
that you preserve this copy for
future reference. Other articles on
laws of especial interest to our peo-
ple will be published in this'paper

the laws, mandates, rules and regu-

know something of his rights and
duties under the new code. The
