All of these items, including the ad for the KKK, were on the front page of this issue. Not a lot of secrecy if you keep a post office box!! I assume someone paid the fee and someone picked up the mail.

Mrs. Roberts Leads Choir
The Sherman Daily Democrat had this to say of Mrs. Barlow Roberts, who conducted the music for the Presbyterian Church:
Mrs. Roberts, who has always ranked among the very best as organist and accompanist, had the judgment of her friends fully vindicated several years ago by the unqualified praise of Miss Anna Case, whom Mrs. Roberts had the pleasure of accompanying for two of her vocal selections; again by Miss Mary Hardison, whose charming voice delights every audience, when she stated that in all her experience from city to city as a revivalist song leader, she had never found anyone superior to Mrs. Roberts as an accurate and sympathetic accompanist.
Mrs. Roberts formerly lived in Caddo and her many friends here are glad that her splendid ability has been recognized.
The statement of the Caddo National Bank is published in this issue. The statement shows a healthy condition, an increase in deposits as well as loans.
Were it not for our banks many people would find it hard sledding to get along. Though many mistake the purpose of a bank. The bank is not supposed to furnish the food and clothing for the family, but to finance from time to time the various needs of farm and industry.
The Caddo National Bank has always been able to take care of the needs of its patrons and has proven a useful aid in carrying on the business of the community.
Don’t grumble, don’t bluster,
Don’t dream and don’t shirk.
Don’t think of your worries,
But think of your work.
The worries will vanish;
The work will be done.
No man sees his shadow
Who faces the sun.
Child Welfare Special
Will be in Bryan County two weeks beginning April 24. Every parent should make it a point to bring the child for examination. Some small defect may be discovered that will mean much to the after health and growth of the child.
It is one of the means Uncle Sam has of looking after the health of future generations.
A slight correction now may save untold pain in the future.
New Ford Sales Plan
The Caddo Motor Co. announces a new plan by which each family may own a Ford. It is simply by saving $5 a week in a bank; then when enough has been saved to make the first payment, do so and get the Ford and pay as you ride.
It is the ambition of Mr. Ford that his car may be used by the multitudes. See Mr. Johnson about it now. Or see Kirby.
Calera Man Injured
Robert Vineyard, a young man about 20 years of age, was seriously injured Saturday night when his horse ran away with him. When the horse started running away he fell off and caught his arm in the bridle which caused the animal to slacken his speed. He fell beneath the horse. The animal’s front feet hit Vineyard in the face. His nose was almost cut off, and one eye is practically out and several deep gashes were cut in his face and body. He was brought to the Memorial Hospital where he received treatment and is today resting as easy as could be expected.
Nineteen Fined for Gambling
Nineteen local men faced charges of gambling in the justice court of Judge Phillips this morning as a result of two raids made near here by the sheriff’s force Sunday afternoon. All nineteen pleaded guilty and were fined $34.50 each. Several were unable to pay their fines, but made bond for their appearance in court at future dates to pay up.
Sheriff John Conn raided one game south of Durant, while Deputy Sheriff Dan Collins rounded up the rest of the alleged gamblers north of the city. Poker and craps constituted the games of chance being indulged in. Durant Democrat
