This first item is just another reminder that Caddo has changed a lot over the years because of numerous fires. Most of the north business block of Buffalo Street was replaced at least twice. Many early homes were destroyed by fire.

Old Landmark Burns Last Monday Morning
Monday morning just before noon the residence of Mrs. F. R. Grayson was destroyed by fire. The fire is thought to have originated from an oil stove, no other fire was about the place.
This is one of the oldest buildings in Caddo, having been erected some forty-odd years ago. It was the home for many years of Mr. and Mrs. F. R. Grayson. At one time it was used as a school building, then a part of the hotel. Much history is wrapped in this pile of ashes.
About School Transfers
If you desire to have your child transferred from a neighboring district to the Caddo district, it will be much easier if you will appear at the superintendent’s office at Caddo High School before May 18th and make application.
You can also make this application through the county superintendent. But don’t wait too late, else you might not get the advantage of being transferred to Caddo schools. Paul Duval, Supt.
