“Oak Leaves Homeseekers’ Edition 1912” reprinted on 48 8 ½ x 11 pages,
softcover. Of this wonder edition Bernie Harville wrote in the Jan.-Apr. 2012
OAK LEAVES: “When I pulled this out of the envelope, I was thunderstruck-
momentary brain freeze- I couldn’t comprehend what I was seeing. The only
copy of the M&NA publication OAK LEAVES I had ever seen was the 1913
edition. It was faded, brittle, pages yellowed and flaking, with some loose, dark
photos, about 7×11 in size.
Here was this item of near-beauty with heavy colorful cover, clean white glossy
pages and photos clear enough to enjoy. On my initial thumb-through, I saw a
notation that this was an enlarged reprint of the original in Dr. Fair’s collection,
by the Museum. I had NO idea that such a near pristine copy to reproduce ever
The M&NA published the first OAK LEAVES at the end of 1909, when the new
line was completed, running, and doing business, and they wanted more of that.
This give-away promotional magazine sought to attract settlers and business
men to its trade area.
Content-wise, this 1912 edition is a synopsis of the line from North to South with
the major towns covered from Neosho to Searcy and then by county areas to
Helena. Granted, each town (and area) is described in glowing terms-a near
Utopia as to climate, fertility, and opportunity. Interestingly, one page deals
with the steps to Homesteading along the line: Filing a claim, proving up, etc. It
seems that thousands of acres were available in a number of counties.
Overall this is a super read. Worth the price? I think yes, because: 1) ’Tis a thing
of beauty, 2) It is a great keepsake souvenir of the old line, 3) Opens a window to
the past-a look at how things were one hundred years ago, 4) for the M&NA fan’s
thin library (Dr Fair’s book, Tim Kubat’s Photo Book, and back issues of the OAK
LEAVES) this is a most welcome add-to.”
