At the residence of C. A. Hancock last night, Mr. Henry Chiles and Miss Mannie Henderson were united in marriage, Rev. J. A. Trickey officiating. After the ceremony an elegant supper was tendered the bride and groom by Mr. C. A. Hancock. The supper was the work of Mr. Hallenbeck of Denison. Only relatives and a few friends of the couple were present.
Mr. Chiles has, for more than two years, been the junior member of the firm of Leeper & Chiles, doing business here, and is a young man of excellent traits, is popular and esteemed by all who know him. Miss Mannie is the daughter of Mrs. A. B. Henderson, is a most loveable and charming young lady, highly connected and loved and admired by all who know her. Both bride and groom have the best wishes of a host of friends both here and at Denison and Sherman.
Those present at the ceremony were: Mr. and Mrs. W. J. Leeper of Denison, Mrs. W. L. Poole, Durant, Misses Rosa Belle Hynds of McKinney, Lillian Chiles of Sherman, Mabel Beavert of Durant, Dr. and Mrs. LeRoy Long, Mrs. F. R. Grayson, C. H. Elting and wife, H. M. Dunlap, Barlow Roberts, H. Edwards, Amos K. Bass, Misses Allen and Bass, Mrs. A. B. Henderson, and Wallace Henderson.
The happy couple accompanied by Messrs. H. Edwards and Amos K. Bass and Misses Chiles and Hynds, left at 1:35 for Denison, from whence the bride and groom went to Kansas City and their escorts returned to Caddo. The wedding was by far the most elegant that has ever occurred in Caddo.

Captain A. L. Beavert
Departs from Our Midst for the Higher World
Capt. A. L. Beavert, a citizen of this place for many years, died Sunday morning at six o’clock, February 5, 1905.
Capt. Beavert was a man highly esteemed by all who knew him and those were legion. A man of serious mind, with conscientious ideas of the rights of his fellow man and a strict follower of the just laws of man to man.
His departure from our midst leaves a void which time will be slow to fill.
Funeral services were held at the family residence Monday evening and interment occurred at Highland Cemetery.
The Democrat extends sympathy to the sorrowing family.
