Within a Year.
There never was a time in tins his-
tory of Vinita that Rave greater prom-
' ise ofj.;rowtli and development for the
city than the present year. There was
r.ever a time when t lie city was better
prepared fr a business looin than it
now is True there have been better
(imcs among the farming communi-
ties. and1 better crops possibly in
this Miction of the country than there
was last year but as a city we were
never better organl.ed iu a financial
way to take care of a business boom
r to assist and encourage business en-
terprises to come hero than we are at
present. Vinita has never been a
bocrn town. .Its growth has hereto-
fore la-en steady and substantial. Hut
the foundation for a city has been
did broad and deep and there Is noth-
ing to prevent the building of a city
that will grow and flourish with each
coming year. We have a live and
wide-awake commercial club that in
reaching out after new industries and
' encouraging the right kind of men to
'''j:ne here and invest in enterprises
that are suitable to the locality and
that will be a success to those who in-
test in them.
We are jut now opening up the
gateway to the best coal mines in the
Southwest which have always laid
' within a few miles of us but were al-
1 most inaccessible. We have t he finest!
' .system of waterworks of any city in
this latitude and ever-living foun-
. tainV'il!ii forth artisiun wafer
which Ik an clear as a crystal pure as
a dew drop and as refreshing as the
i drippings of an icelrg.
Our educat ional instil id ions are of
i high order and churches of nearly
every denoininat inn. t;;ie structures;
with organizations that wield a pov.er
tor gfMi m t lie cMiiinuiiit .
Wo have all these great comer
atones laid ami an said lie fore they
f irm the foundation for a great city.
We are now working on the third
rtJii .i'l v.i.icli. wifh the two trunk
lines already here w ill give us an out-
let in every direction. Heretofore
our hands have been lied our oppor-
tunities smot hered and our light shut
in. Now we can talk buy or sell.
and see beyond the limit of our own
statehood is at. least in sight and
we are no longer on --tiestionable
The tide of emigration is tending
hither and money-seeking investment
w coming this way. We are located
m the very gateway of this new coun-
try and we are bound to be seen and
investigated by everyone coming in.
The erection of business blocks tine
homes and the wl..r of machinery and
blowing of factory whistles are bound
f o attract their attention.
Let us set our stake for the ti(wu
t ark this year and with over half
that many to start with we predict
that the middle of the summer will
find us past the three-quarter mark
and well on our way.

DaTidaon Entertain Gentle
A most unique social affair was
given last night at the home of C. A.
Davidson. The occasion being a birtli-
day party given by Mr. Davidson. A
six o'clock dinner was served in seven
courses. The table was elegantly
decorated with fruit flowers and
holly branches. It was a dinner tit to
set before the kings but Mr. David-
son claimed to be serving only com-
mon princes. A notable feature of
the occasion was that not a woman
was to be seen about the premises
Mrs. Davidson having made her es-
cape before the gue-sts assembled; but
the dinner woulo. indicate that she
had been giving this matter her at-
tention as the well arrangxjd menu
would suggest that someone well
versed in society events had given
thought and direction in bringing
about such an elabor ate display of good
things to eat. After the hearty re-
past cigars of the best brands were
served and theu card tables were ar-
ranged and a very hotly contested
;;oie of cards was entered upon and
it was 12 o'clock before the jolly
crowd was aware of it.
