Band Boys Organize
Caddo now has a brass band. We have long known that here was ample talent here for a good band and now it has been demonstrated beyond all shadow of a doubt for the boys have really organized and are getting along nicely under the leadership of E. I. Nichols, recently from Dallas, Texas. The Herald hopes the boys will keep the organization going for every progressive town needs a brass band. We feel sure that the business men will cooperate with the boys in every possible way to make the venture a success.

Arrested for Murder
Tuesday Constable Alexander located a young man who has been living and working Caddo for several months and who is wanted in Alabama on a charge of murder. The young man is William Ward, he has been at work for some time on the pipe line and doing odd jobs about town. Constable Alexander sometime ago received the description of Ward and pictures of him; he was attracted by the likeness of the young man in every way to the description of the man wanted and began a little investigation on the quiet, all the time keeping his eye on the suspect. Tuesday Ward was placed under arrest and he admitted that he is the man the officers are looking for but declared that he is innocent of the crime. There was no reward offered for his arrest.

Moon Sold Out
Last Tuesday a deal was consummated whereby W. J. Moon transferred two brick buildings and his stock of general merchandise to Mr. J. O. Hartzog, of Big Springs, Texas. Mr. Hartzog is a progressive business man and will enlarge considerably upon the stock of goods already carried and will probably add another line or two. He also promises to be in the market for cotton and grain this fall. We are glad to welcome Mr. Hartzog to our midst and trust that he will proper in his business here.
