Cade News Notes
The cold spell of last week brought about more hog killing. It seems that sure enough, cold weather is later this year than usual.
Gus Pickens of Boswell was in Cade Sunday morning following his hounds, which were after a wolf. Several have reported seeing wolves lately, so we hope Mr. Pickens ceases them often.
J. T. Hale of Cade, and G. N. Harkey of Matoy attended the annual farm council at Durant Friday as representatives from Matoy township.
The patrons of the Cade school gathered at the school building Thanksgiving morning and listened to a very entertaining program rendered by school children. The program completed, the entire body passed into an adjoining room where neatly liveried tables simply groaned beneath their load of appetizing eats of sundry description. All declared that it was the most enjoyable day of the year.
Several of the community were shopping in Bennington Saturday, including W. G. Ruth, Fred Wigley, S. A. White, and D. W. Weathers.
Mrs. C. H. Wigley and son, Henry, are spending a few days in Okla. City visiting relatives.
Mrs. L. E. Roberts and daughter Edna Belle are visiting at Whitewright and other places in Texas.
Mr. and Mrs. C. H. Green are rejoicing over the arrival of an 8-pound baby girl who came Thanksgiving morn.
