Woodman Class and Supper
Next Tuesday night the Caddo Camp W. O. W. will have an ice cream supper and smoker in the hall. All members are urged to come and all visitors are invited. A number are to the initiated and the Matoy camp is coming. The Woodmen never do things by halves so all who come may expect a big time.
Three Plead Guilty
Tuesday morning in the district court at Durant Judge Hatcher accepted three pleas of guilty.
Sherman McCain, a young man of Bennington, was guilty of forgery in eight cases and the judge gave him one year in each case.
The two boys who confessed to robbing the treasurer’s office last week were given two years each in the Granite reformatory.
Miss Rushing Elected Queen
The balloting for Queen of the Durant Fair closed Monday eve resulting in the election of Miss Myrtle Rushing, who received 2,649,510 votes.
There will be dancing at the fairgrounds each evening as a large pavilion has been erected for that purpose.
If those who attend the Fair do not enjoy it, it will be no fault of the management for they are sparing neither pains nor money to provide entertainment.
Armstrong Academy Opens
Armstrong Academy, 12 miles southeast of Caddo, opened Monday morning and the enrollment has been heavier than on any first day of its history. It is a school for orphan Choctaw boys.
