I think I may have originally posted the MKT article last year. I found the other one last week and decided to re-post them together.

Bunch of Live Ones
Don’t it do you good though, to come in contact with a real live wire once in a awhile? The Herald editor was fortunate enough to be steered up against a whole bunch of live ones Wednesday afternoon. They were the Wood brothers and C.C. Curry, four of them in all: Fox Wood, Arthur C. Wood, Elmer S. Wood, of Fort Smith, Ark. and C. C. Curry, of Fayetteville, Ark. the owners of the addition to the town of Caddo known as the M.K. & T. addition and located just to the north of the city. They propose to put these lots on the market within the next few days and as they have a habit of selling whatever they put on the market, it is reasonable to suppose that they will handle this property with dispatch and with the usual satisfactory results. Caddo is in line to get some very valuable advertising in the near future and it will be to our interest to co-operate with these people in every possible way; they have other properties and are sending prospective buyers by train loads from the old states down to look over their holdings. Caddo is in line for some of these immigrant trains and the thing for us to do is to give these people who are prospecting here the “glad hand”; show them that we are glad to have them here and that we want them to locate here. Let’s get busy and see if we cannot add materially to the population of our town and trade territory this year.

Buys New Addition
Oklahoma Immigration Company Will Sell the South Heights Addition at Once
A deal was consummated last week between the Oklahoma Immigration Co. and W. F. Semple, whereby the former company becomes the owners of the South Heights addition to Caddo.
Messrs. E. S. Wood, Fox Wood, and Arthur Wood of the company were here last Sunday taking photo views of the town and preparing a selling campaign of literature concerning Caddo, her present condition and future prospects, industries.
This company was the owners of the M. K. & T. Addition north of the main town and have sold practically all of it and will in all probability be equally successful in disposing of the South Heights. It is good property and will in time prove a profitable investment. The new school building is located on it and several residences are already located on or near it.
If Caddo is awake to her opportunity she will profit immensely by the boosting of this addition. Other property will be advertised and other benefits derived.
