The Caddo Herald
May 3, 1901
Next Tuesday is the time appointed for the voters of town to decide whether or not a a sufficient tax shall be levied for the support of a free school system in Caddo. Nothing speaks better for any town than a good school system, whether free or private. A tax of $1 on the $100 would bring a revenue of $3,000 and with that a pretty good school could be established.

Thanks for Contributions
I desire to thank the people of your city for their kind donation of $2.20 given to me while here for the Whitaker Orphan Home at Pryor Creek, also $1.99 found in the little tin boxes as follows: Choctaw National Bank, 55c, Nail Hotel, 40c, Sims Hotel 30c, post office, 13c, and Ira L. Smith’s Drug Store, 56c. Total amount $4.19. This institution in the Indian Territory for white orphan children should be supported by every person living in Indian Territory. It is well known that the Indians have free schools and orphan homes and plenty of money to carry them on, but this home is depending on charity for support. Why not make up a box of goods and ship to the Home? You can give clothing, a bar of soap, a package of soda, rice, coffee, beans, sugar or something to eat. Always prepay freight. Miss Elizabeth Matthews, Orphan Home, Pryor Creek, I. T.
