W. B. M. S. Rally
The first quarterly rally of the W. B. M. S. of the Bryan County Association was held at Caddo Baptist Church, Jan. 24, 1925.
A very inspiring devotional was led by Mrs. J. W. Smith, after which Mrs. J. B. Clayton, assistant president, delved into a discussion of the various departments of the missionary program for the year.
Leaders of the following departments made reports: Department of Study, Personal Service, Institutional Work, Training, Social Activities, Enlistment.
The Bible lesson from Dr. Moore’s Outline, taught by Mrs. Smith, was very interesting and much appreciated.
During the noon hour a part of the high school orchestra, under the direction of Mrs. Coffey, rendered several sacred selections for which all were very thankful. Also, lunch was served at the church to about one hundred persons, including eighteen visitors.
Afternoon devotional was conducted by the Young Woman’s Auxiliary of Caddo, by Miss Dalena Boydstun. Sunbeams also had a part on the program.
Mrs. J. S. Vaughn’s discussion of “The Two-fold Healing of Our Hospitals” was fine.
Round table, practical demonstration of committee meeting was given by Mrs. McNeely with Bokchito W.B. M. S.
The Ideal Business Meeting of a missionary society by Durant W. B. M. S. with Mrs. W. K. Gillstrap in the chair, was very instructive.

Rabid Dog Bites Two- Other May Be Bitten
Tuesday evening about three o’clock Fred D. Jackson, thirteen-year-old son of W. B. Jackson, living in town, was bitten by a mad dog.
The boy was leaning against a post on the sidewalk when the dog came trotting along the street. The boy was tapping the iron post with a stick and evidently attracted the dog’s attention, causing the animal to charge him. His hand was caught in the dog’s mouth, breaking the skin at the inner base of the thumb.
Medical attention was given the hand, and at present the boy is getting along nicely.
After biting the boy the dog chased a man into D.H. Wilson’s home, and would have bitten him if it had been quick enough to catch him.
Parties with guns followed the dog and killed it near the viaduct.
Mr. Jackson sent the animal’s head to Oklahoma City to be analyzed.
The State Department of Health reported that after examination of the dog’s head that the brute was afflicted with hydrophobia.
Clarence Holmes who lives on J. B. Moore’s place west of town is reported also to have been bitten by the same dog.
