A FERTILE REGION
In which crop failures are unknown,

for habitation than Pontotoc County, Oklahoma.

Mr. Williams is a salesman of more than ordinary ability and during the short time he has had charge of this territory he has broken all previous sales records, having without any assistance sold more than one hundred and twenty-five machines. Mr. Williams is a man who is strictly reliable and has always made it a point in dealing with the public to use only honorable and legitimate methods in the conduct of his business.
We wish to impress upon the minds of the public that when they deal with Mr. Williams they are not only assured of getting the best and most durable machines procurable, but are also assured of getting a square deal.

Rural schools in Pontotoc County
At statehood the only school houses in the rural districts were miserable makeshifts.
During the past six years, however, there has been a revolution. Over $80,000 has been spent on good, substantial buildings and the children are housed as comfortably as anywhere else. The schools are also well supported and most of the rural districts have terms of not less than eight or nine months. Under the influence of the East Central Normal at Ada and stringent state laws requiring a high grade of proficiency of teachers, the school system is rapidly developing in thoroughness and efficiency.

Coca-Cola has been acknowledged the world over as being the most popular beverage yet discovered and is confessed by scientists everywhere to be simply incomparable and approached by no other soft drink on the market in deliciousness of taste and sparkling freshness. It is delightful to the taste, satisfying, bracing and full of health-giving properties.
The Ada Coca Cola Bottling Co., located at 300 East Main Street, occupy a fine brick structure with an excellent equipment of modern machinery and appliances. The purity of the products turned out by this plant has made them famous and wherever they have been introduced they meet with great favor and are called for in preference to products of other bottling works.
