The Caddo Herald
September 2, 1910
Last week Caddo pulled off her big annual Corn Carnival and W. O. W. Picnic. This show always attracts people from far and near because they are sure that they will see something worthwhile and because there are always provided several real good free attractions.
On the last day of the Carnival Hon. Joseph W. McNeal, republican nominee for governor of the sate was here and made a splendid speech which was listened to attentively by the immense crowd that had gathered to hear him. He is big, broad minded, capable, and is perhaps the strongest man the republicans could put out.
