The Caddo Herald
May 2, 1902
Mr. R. B. Faudree has moved from near Atoka to Caddo.
Work has progressed rapidly on the new south Methodist parsonage on the lot with the church. It is now nearly completed.
Mrs. R. T. Lynch returned Tuesday from Caddo Mills, Texas, after an illness of several months. We’re glad to report her recovered.
Sam L. Morley and Dr. Rutherford, of Bennington, were in Caddo Monday. They have their drug store at Bennington open and ready for business.
Mrs. Sallie Dilworth of Durant, and Mrs. Emma Clark of Corinth, Mississippi, spent several days in Caddo this week with their nice and aunt, Mrs. B. S. Ellis. The ladies had not seen each other of r26 years and the meeting was of course a happy one.
Mesdames Ed Walters and T. W. Hunter left last Thursday for a trip to Los Angele’s, California. They will attend the meeting of the general Federation of Women’s Clubs, which will be held in that city next week.
Dr. T. J. Long is a graduate of the class of 1902 at Tulane University at New Orleans, Louisiana.
R. A. Riddles has purchased two of the old style long horn steers. He had them on the streets Monday and they were whoppers. They were in poor flesh, yet they weighed 2,500 pounds together. Mr. Riddles will fatten them and take them to the St. Louis exposition next year where they are sure of taking a prize or two.
Col. Preston was here from Preston City Sunday. He has sent to the department a numerously signed petition requesting that the name of Caney be changed to Preston City. The people of that fine burg have good reason for wanting the name changed, especially for the odium cast on it by the Caney robbery last year. We hope they will succeed.
