SPARKS FIRST ADDlTIOil TO CliMSliA
L Is Uqvj a Reality
The trial of Sim Gosleti In the coun-
ty court yesterday afternoon resulted
in acquital. Ofiicer Burgess and Dep-
uty Joe Earl made the arrest.
Burgess testified that he went up
to the second story of Stephenson ft
Browne Lumber company office to
watch the back yards of the joints on
Chickasha avenue between First and
Second streets; that he saw C. Grant
an old gentleman walking along the
outside of the fence enclosing the yard
back of one of the joints; that he saw
Goslen come out of Matt Cook's place
and look around several times .and
then walk toward the fence wher
the old man was standing. Ilia view
of Goslen was obstructed a few feet
from the fence but he saw a bottle
pushed through an opening in th9
board wall and the money passed
through by Grant. '
Grant Raid that he knocked on th
fence and received two pints of liquor
for which he paid two dollars. He did
not kuow who gave it to him but bo
did not think it was Goslen. He had
asked Goslen for whiskey that morn
ing and Goslen had said he didn't have
any and it he did have he wouldn't
give it to Grant for ?100.
Goslen testified that he had left the
joint in the forenoon while this trans-
action occurred in the afternoon and
he was not about the place at the
time. He said he had never sold whin-
key but had sold "Hot Shot"
The jury was composed of the fol
lowing men: C. L. Greer A. B. Coch-
ran Olin Brashear J. C. Smith ('"mud
Sigmon and F. M. Frey.
The people of Chickasha for years have looked forward to the opening of this Addition. It
is the most desirable for ho'bie building. Most favorably located southwest from the princi-
pal part of the city it is therefore comparatively free from smoke and dust. Being a smooth
elevated tract from every point it commands a splendid view of the entire city the beauti-
ful Washita Valley and the country for ruiks around.
Fine Streets and BouleCards are Characteristics of this Addition.
Warranty deeds conveying title clear of all incumbrance can now be made. Abstracts of
title will be furnished to purchasers of lots.
