Hard to believe that Caddo once had a skating rink, a race track, a large park, a hotel and an opera house! Edward Baxter Perry, brought here by the Music Club, was a famous blind musician of the early 1900’s. You can read about him in old issues of the New York Times and other publications.
The Christian Church was meeting in the Odd Fellows Hall because their new building was not completed until July.

Perry Piano Recital
At the opera house Monday night, under the auspices of the Music Club, Mr. Edward Baxter Perry will give a piano recital. Mr. Perry is a musician of national reputation whose recitals are always in demand, in fact it required a year’s time for the club to secure him for this engagement. He has pleased music loving audiences all over the world, has few equals with the piano. Remember he is at the opera house next Monday night.
Clerk’s Salary Reduced
At their regular meeting this week the county commissioners reduced the salary of the county court clerk at Caddo from $50 to $25 per month, but not requiring constant attendance at the office. J. M. Moore, the clerk, does not have to stay in the office except when someone wishes to file papers or secure a marriage license and when court is in session. His place of business being close by he is readily reached by any who desire his services.
We believe there are other clerks whose salaries might either be reduced or eliminated without serious detriment to the well running of the county’s business.
It pays to boost Caddo.
