The Clifton Medicine Co. have been holding down the boards at the opera house all week. They charge a small admission and sell medicine. The show that is put on is clean, and of a better class than the ordinary medicine show, the only objection being that the actors work entirely too slow. They also have on a gold watch voting contest which is to end Saturday night.
Wednesday the class of Mrs. I. T. Underwood spent the day in the Caddo Hills. The young folks enjoyed very hugely, this, their first outing of the season. The day being April Fool’s Day, the school thought it would fool everybody, including themselves by a holiday. The children returned yesterday to their work much refreshed, but wishing every day was April Fool’s Day.
Dr. Charley Lynch and wife arrived from Chicago Sunday and spent several days here, the guest of the doctor’s brother, R. T. Lynch. Dr. Lynch lives at Mayhew, but left several months ago to take a post –graduate course in medicine at Chicago. On New Year’s Day he was married at Kansas City and many of his friends are just now learning of the happy event. They left Wednesday for their home at Mayhew, or Boswell. (Note: R.T. Lynch was shot and killed just a few months later.)
Excitement was intense at the depot last Sunday afternoon. Just as the fireman was clanging the bell to start the north bound passenger and the conductor gave the engineer the highball, a man who had just gotten off was exhibiting Denison whiskey in a very careless way, both within and without. An Indian policeman standing near immediately spilled all the liquor in sight and the man meandered down the street. When last seen he was in south Caddo.
