The Caddo Herald
February 9, 1917
Dr. and Mrs. L. M. Nettelton left Tuesday to spend several weeks visiting relatives in Galveston. The doctor is just recovering from a severe attack of pneumonia and goes to recuperate.
Miss Fannie Lyle was here last week from Durant, visiting her mother. With Mrs. Bilbo and Dick Bilbo Monday she took her mother, Mrs. Lyle to Durant so that she may the better look after her.
F. E. Pitchlynn was in town Sunday. Everett is one of those men who pay close attention to business and his farms are always in good shape. He also is a member of the school board for this district.
C. C. Gordon was in town Saturday and paid The Herald a pleasant visit, also his subscription far ahead. Mr. Gordon has moved to the Rowsey farm west of town and is fast getting ready for the spring plowing.
Grandpa Faudree died Monday at Atoka and the remains were buried Tuesday. Mr. Faudree is the father of Howard Faudree of near Caddo, being related to the Hauer family. Herman Hauer attended the funeral from Caddo.
The eighteen months old baby of Mr. and Mrs. Love of Buffalo St. died Saturday of pneumonia and was buried at the Caddo cemetery Sunday afternoon at 2 o’clock. Rev. C. A Clark conducted the funeral services at the residence.
It is here. The great remedy you have been reading about, yes dreaming about, for days and weeks- the wonderful Taniac, advertised throughout the land and recommended for all manner of diseases. Get a bottle today at the Corner Drug Store.
Another cold wave Sunday. It seems that this winter has been just one cold spell after another, which makes it somewhat hard on the fellow who is short on wood and coal. Anyway we believe the proper time to have winter weather is in the winter time.
Miss Nina Hauer returned Saturday from a three weeks’ visit to St. Louis where she was studying styles and the manufacture of millinery. She will again be with Boone & Styron this season and will have many pretty and stylish things to show customers.
John Owens is one of those friends of The Herald whom we very much appreciate. He came in Monday with the necessary spondulicks to set his dates ahead. The Herald thinks more of its friends than anybody and they always find a cordial welcome in our office.
County Assessor W. H. Yates and Mrs. Frank Battiest were married at Matoy Sunday in the presence of quite a number of friends of both parties; and are now making their home in Durant. The Herald joins the many friends of the assessor in wishing them much happiness in life.
J. R. Stevens was in town Saturday greeting his many friends, among whom The Herald is one. He is ready for spring sowing now; he being one of those famers who break their ground in the fall and give it the value of winter freezes and rains. This country needs more farmers like J. R.
Lots of farmers are having to haul water on account of no rains this winter. It seems that many of the deep wells have failed and made water exceedingly hard to get. Of course Caddo water works can supply all the water for miles around, which is a great convenience not only to town people, but to those who have to haul it.
Grandma Benton died Sunday at Calvin, Okla. and the remains were brought to Caddo and buried in the Turnbull cemetery ten miles east of town Tuesday. Deceased was the mother of Ed, Tobe, and Jim Benton, and had reached a very old age. She formerly lived near Caddo and is well known to many of our older citizens.
Tim Galvin was in town a while Tuesday. He reports Bat Lane quite sick at his home north of town. Mr. Lane was ninety-five-years old Wednesday so has reached an age that few men live to see. All the older citizens know Bat Lane. He came here with the builders of the Katy in the early seventies. We trust that he shall recover.
Former County Commissioner Gray Nickels was here a while Tuesday having attended a session of the court at Durant. He reports that the court house bond of Bryan County brought a premium of $8,750.00. This is quite a large premium considering that the bonds bear only five per cent interest. This is in reality the only indebtedness that Bryan County has and her people are to be congratulated that this is so. It is enough to bear ordinary running expenses without having to pay big interest on bonds to boot.
