Parker Store Robbed
The filing station store of Beecher Parker was entered by thieves Wednesday night and robbed of some $150 worth of groceries, flour, meal, syrup, and lard.
Mr. Parker thinks the robbers got away in a car. They loaded the stuff out of the front door.
The sheriff’s force is on the job. Finger prints were taken, and every effort is being used to run down the thieves.

B. C. Parker, aged 40 years, died Wednesday evening at his home here from the effects of a blood clot on his brain which is alleged to have resulted from a fight some weeks ago. The funeral was held Thursday afternoon in charge of Rev. H. T. Wiles of Seminole, who was his long time friend. He had been a long time resident of Caddo, having engaged in the filling station and grocery business until he sold out to his brother, L. A. Parker and after that he engaged in the produce business. He is survived by his widow, two sons, Neathery and B. C. Jr., one daughter, Almazene, two brothers in Caddo, Eber and L. A. Parker.

B. C. Parker, Caddo merchant, died late Wednesday from natural causes, a coroner’s jury decided at Caddo today following an examination of his brain by physicians to determine whether a blow he received some eight days ago was a contributing cause to his death. Parker died of a hemorrhage of the brain, three doctors decided, but the blow was not a contributing cause. The verdict absolved Abe Tisdial of Caddo, who had told officers he and Parker had a friendly scuffle in the latter’s store eight days ago and Parker received a blow to the mouth. A few days after this incident Parker began suffering with severe headaches and was brought to a local hospital, even after doctors had informed the family his case was hopeless since the hemorrhage had reached his spine, and it was only a matter of days until he would succumb. He died at his home after three physicians gave the opinion he could not live.
