To Lydia E. Pinkham Med*
Vtamen who are well often ask "Are
the litters which the Lydia E. Pinkham

" Why do women write such letters? "

published a fictitious letter or name.

'Ae reason that thousands of women

of a Great Common-
Oklahoma City.—Henry A. Pressey
New York engineer, is the man who
has offered to build a railroad into
northwestern Oklahoma connecting
Woodward and Oklahoma City. Rep
resenting New York bankers and fi-
nanciers Mr. Pressey laid the proposi-
tion before the Chamber of Commerce
and out-of-town business men.
Committees have been working in
Woodward, Watonga, Mutual, Seiling
and other places along the route ot
the proposed road to raise part of the
bonus. These committees will report
in a general meeting at the Chamber
of Commerce Thursday.
Calls for $400,000 Bonus.
Mr. Pressey's proposition calls for
a bonus of $400,000 and right-of-way
rights. Ot this amount Oklahoma
City is expected to subscribe 10 per
cent, the remainder to be prorated
among other towns along the route.
Total cost of constructing the 140
miles of trackage, stations and ter-
minals will be $2,000,000. .
The New York bankers have given
the Chamber of Commerce until Sep-
tember 1 to either accept or reject the
proposal. Estimates, surveys and
other details were completed some
time ago by Mr. Pressey, who has
made four trips over the route.
Nine Months To Build.
It is estimated that it will require
nine months to build the road. The
contract of the New Yorkers is posi-
tive and binding and needs only the
acceptance of Oklahoma Cityans and
others interested to start the work.
