To Build New Brick
Last week Lake Brewer completed a deal whereby he became the owner of the lot just west of the Oklahoma State Bank.
This week he let the contract for the erection of a one story brick business house on the lot. It will be 25x100 feet and fitted for an up-to-date grocery store. Craghead Bros. of Caddo were the successful bidders for the work.
Mr. Brewer has been a merchant of Caddo for many years up to the first of this year when he and H. G. Huffman dissolved partnership. Since then Mr. Brewer has been looking around and in his travels he has failed to find a place any better than Caddo so he decided to stay here. For all of which Caddo people are glad because Mr. Brewer is a mighty good citizen and one that the town might be proud of.
