R. H. Carraway Goes to Mineola, Texas
R. H. Carraway and family left Wednesday noon for Mineola, Texas, where they will make their home, he having purchased a half interest in the Mineola Monitor.
Mr. Carraway came to Caddo in 1907 and was connected with The Herald as foreman, half owner and owner, then half owner until 1915 when he was appointed postmaster by President Wilson. He served until a year ago when A. E. Richey was appointed.
Caddo regrets exceedingly to lose this excellent family. Mrs. Carraway was connected with the most prominent citizen families of the Choctaws, is a welcome addition to any society. Mr. Carraway will add materially to the citizenship of his newly chosen town.
However, their many friends wish them every prosperity and happiness in their new home.
Dr. Bowman Dies
Word was received last Friday by Mrs. Frank Mugler that Dr. W. R. Bowman had died in Muskogee and would be buried here.
Doctor Bowman was for many years an honored citizen of Caddo, practiced his profession, was a member of the Masonic and K.P. lodges, and the Methodist Church, serving on the board of stewards. He was altogether a mighty good citizen.
He, with his family, moved to Chickasha some ten years ago, where ill health overtook him; then he moved to Muskogee.
His many friends will learn of his death with regret.
Achille Man is Arrested
A raid by Sheriff John Conn and Deputy Sheriff Benson yesterday resulted in the arrest of H. G. Grindslade, a prominent citizen, and Bill McGurie, a negro, in connection with running a still. A copper still, of twenty-five gallon capacity, said to be in operation on Mr. Grindslade’s farm, and three gallons of corn whiskey were seized. Both were released on bonds of $1,000 each.
This will be the first case in Bryan County to come to trial under the new prohibition law recently passed by the ninth legislature and signed by Governor Walton. The minimum penalty on conviction under the new law is one year in the state penitentiary and $100 fine and confiscation of the property on which the still was found.
It is said the negro started to run, but “something tol’ me to stop” he said when Mr. Benson drew a gun on him. Durant Democrat
The Highway Service Station will open Saturday and that day each customer of five gallons will get an extra gallon of gas free. They also have free water, free air, and free service. Tires changed while you wait. In fact anything in the way of service that you want. Freeman Beaty
