P. L. Rogers has opened up the Blue Front Wagon Yard on Main Street in the old Lingo Rice stand and has prepared everything in a most excellent manner. He has a lunch counter and rooms in connection.
Born: Two boys were born to Mr. and Mrs. Matt Damron last Saturday. One was an eight pounder, the other nine.
Born: A fine boy arrived at the home of W. F. Russell yesterday morning. Both child and mother are doing well. Walter is happy.
Born: Noah Arrington, who lives east of the Caddo Hills, is the proud father of twin boys. They came Monday; both boys are lusty fellows.
Married: Albert Lamb and Miss Delia Suddith were married last Sunday at the home of the bride’s father, seven miles east of Caddo. Rev. J. A. Trickey officiating. Mr. Lamb is a brother of J. F. Lamb, and is a promising young man. Miss Suddith is the charming daughter of J. M. Suddith, well known here and both are admirable people.
Miss Coral Hill left Thursday for her home in Bartlett, Texas. She had spent some time with relatives here and will return in about a month.
The ladies of the Music Club desire to thank Mr. J. F. Lamb for his many courtesies and kindnesses in assisting them with their Colonial Tea last Saturday.
Rev. G. W. Gann, of the Christian faith, will preach at the Methodist Church nest Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday nights.
Mrs. Minnie Griesenbeck and children returned to her home at Bastrop, Texas after a fortnight’s visit to her brother and sister, W. E. and Miss Thedin in Caddo.
Dr. Rappolee tells us he has officiated at the birth of four sets of twins within the past month; six were boys and two were girls.
Dr. G. B. Green and son and daughter, Macon and Edna, desire to thank those generous Caddo people who assisted them in the fire Wednesday night which destroyed their home.
Prof. Abbott and Garrett and Misses Lyle and McArthur have returned from the teacher’s meeting in South McAlester.
A.M. Robertson has purchased the drug business of Loomis & Skeen at Wapanucka and has named it Robertson Pharmacy. We are sorry to lose Bert from Caddo.
Rev. J. A. Trickey made a trip to Atoka Wednesday. From him we learn that the funeral services were held there that evening over the remains of Alex Hass, but the interment will occur at Kansas City.
About ten o’clock Wednesday night by a lamp explosion, the resident of Dr. G. B. Green burned. Dr. Green had just got home and was attempting opt light the lamp, the accident occurred. Flames spread fast and few of the household goods were saved. Hard heroic work was necessary to save the dwelling of W. F. Russell south. The rain early in the evening was a great factor in preventing the spread of the fire. We understand about $1000 insurance was carried.
The Caddo public schools closed last Thursday on account of the money giving out. Prof. Abbott and Miss Wallace will, we understand, conduct a private school for some time. It seems that not enough funds were furnished for the maintenance of the school, or that the expenses were more than thought for. Caddo should at least have nine months free school. It has been a great help to the town and many children have already been benefitted who would not otherwise have gone to school.
