Organize Democratic Club
Last Thursday evening quite a number of democrats assembled at the court house according to a call of the precinct convention, and organized the Caddo Democratic Club.
B. F. Maddox was elected temporary and permanent chairman; H. E. Rappolee was elected temporary and permanent secretary.
The club unanimously endorsed the administrations of Governor Williams and President Wilson. Several strong talks were made by members, among them being B. F. Maddox, A. E. Ray and W. C. Hatcher.
Upon motion the chairman appointed a committee of W. C. Hatcher, J. L. Boland, and J. A. Moore to see to the organizing of democrats in this community. The committee on membership whose duty it is to solicit members for the club is: D. O. Nail, W. F. Dodd, A. P. Hill, A. E. Boydstun, and G. W. Phillips.
Club meets Thursday nights.
The pastor of the Presbyterian Church has notified the officers of the church that he will resign at the approaching meeting of the Presbytery, April 19th.
A congregational meeting is called for the 16th at the close of the morning service to consider this announcement and prepare an answer to be laid before the Presbytery when the pastor resigns.
Every member of the church ought to attend this meeting.
A Big Industrial Item
Most people don’t realize it but there is a big sum of money paid out in Caddo every week for bois d’arc by the Choctaw Fence Post & Tie Co. this timber is sent to dye mills in the east and manufactured into a very pretty and lasting dye.
Some two cars a day are being shipped from here. It is good cash money that the timber men are getting for a product that otherwise would be wasted. The price paid is enough to justify a man’s team getting it out.
With Mrs. Lievsay
The ladies of the Christian Church held their last meeting with Mrs. C. L. Lievsay Tuesday afternoon. Those present had a most enjoyable time. After a scripture lesson and discussion and some business matters talked over, those present were invited into the dining room where a most delicious lunch was served.
The cake and cream were exceptionally fine. Mrs. Robinson was a visitor and all were indebted to Miss Winona Drake for being one of the number and adding to the services by presiding at the piano. The next meeting will be with Mrs. Joe Drake.
