Fire Destroys the Semple Gin
Fire Sunday night destroyed the old Semple gin on Main Street. The building and machinery were a total loss with no insurance. Origin of the fire is unknown, since the gin had not been used for several years. The house was one of the landmarks of Caddo, being one of the oldest in town.
Fire- The alarm of fire was turned in from the home of Mrs. P. L. Rogers Tuesday night at supper time. The fire caught from the kitchen fire and was extinguished ere much damage was done.

Bowman at the Elevator
Monday morning Dr. W. R. Bowman began his duties as manager of the Katty Mill and Elevator at Caddo, a position which he held until ten months ago. He has abandoned the practice of medicine and will devote his entire time to the Elevator duties.
The Katy Mill & Elevator Co. recently acquired the McAlester Mill & Elevator and W. M Smith was placed in charge of the latter plant. This concern is growing every day, has enjoyed a good business from the start, and is a local institution of which every citizen should be proud.
The revival closed at the Methodist Church last Sunday night. It was in progress three weeks, and under the leadership of Evangelist G. A. Marvin, accomplished much for the good of Caddo and the church.
No account was kept of the reclamations and conversions, but the results are known to have been large. Some twenty new members were received into the Methodist Church, while many backsliders were reclaimed.
Evangelist Marvin left Monday for his home at Sherman, where he will take a rest before again taking up revival work.
