THIS WEEK HAS BEEN
the best that Shawnee has ever experiencee in the way of property changing hands.
Next week bids fair to surpass this one. The New Interurban Railroad is to begin
work both ways from Shawnee within 30 days. The Corrigated Iron Factory will
open up at once. The Wire Factory is almost ready to install their machinery.
The Oklahoma City Interurban Line is being pushed from this end. The Switch
to the Packing Plant will be completed within three days. Material will be placed
on the ground at Armourdale and actual work will begin within a week. If the
above does not stimulate activity in real estate, we miss our guess. When you want
to look the town over, no matter where you buy or not, see
