Lots of Cotton- Given a few pretty days and the farmers will bring lots of cotton to town. About 3,000 bales have been ginned in Caddo this season and outlook is for that much more. The price is around 14c for middling cotton, but most of the cotton is of a lower grade and brings much less.

Work is progressing rapidly on the new homes of L. M. Wood and H. T. Chiles in the south and west part of town. The homes will have modern conveniences.
