You may have seen a portion of this in the past listed as 1893. The date on the newspaper is barely legible. I have however, corrected that date, based on the date of an ad and an ordinance in the paper.

A prominent citizen of Caddo took advantage of the heavy ice formations during the early part of the week and laid by several tons of ice. He employed G. W. Burch, the clever and accommodating wagon master to haul the ice from a tank a distance of half a mile, for which he paid him at a rate of $7 a ton, so we understand. Artificial ice can be delivered in Caddo for $6 a ton during the summer, but the local dealer probably considered that natural homemade ice is more preferable even if it costs more and has to take chances on wasting between this and summer. At any rate Burch is not complaining.
