The Caddo Herald
September 22, 1922
Cotton seed is bringing $28 a ton in Caddo. Our buyers are paying more for cotton than Dallas, so why not come to Caddo?
This is the first day of fall or autumn. Had a pretty hot summer and may have a few more hot days, but we need not run our fans so much.
Lots of cotton is coming to Caddo, considering the shortness of the crop and difficulty in picking. This is because the people get right treatment here. Caddo wants the people to come here to trade so that she may serve them.
Wheat goes up and cotton goes down because of a war in Europe and Asia. Conclusive proof that America can never isolate herself. The American government, however, will not interfere in this Turkish trouble except perhaps as a mediator. We are about fed up on fighting the battles of the old country.
Mr. Chiles informs us that he will have to sell coal somewhere around $12 a ton this winter. Of course this is high, but the local dealer is not responsible. People living here though need not be bothered by the high price of coal. We can burn wood for less than half that money and keep the money at home where we can see it again. Patronize home in everything that you can and you will do a lot toward breaking the backs of those who exact more than a fair profit for their product.
Late News: cotton went off about $1.00 a bale Wednesday and Thursday came in $2 a bale shy. Seems like the threatened war in Europe had an opposite effect on cotton.
The Katy and T. P. officials have declined to enter into agreements with the striking shopmen. They say the men must enter work as new men.
At the home of her mother in Denison last Monday, Miss Ruby Mead and Mr. Elmer Keynon were united in marriage by Rev. F. R. Long, pastor of the Baptist Church. After the ceremony they left for Hillsboro to make their home. The groom is an excellent young man employed by the Katy. The bride is the daughter of Mrs. Bertha Mead, formerly of Caddo, now of 612 West Main Street, Denison. Her many friends here will be glad to congratulate them.
