Died: Mrs. Julia Cobb died suddenly at Caney Wednesday, supposed to have died of heart disease. She was the widow of Dr. John Cobb who died two years ago at Lehigh. They resided for several years at Caddo.

Two bales of cotton belonging to C. A. Hancock caught fire Saturday night and burned almost completely up before they were discovered. The origin of the fire is not know, and it is hard to understand how the fire could have started as everything was very wet from rain which had been falling. The loss was close to $100.
W. A. Cariker, who was arrested last week and carried to the Atoka jail where he was incarcerated, charged with the murder of a negro at this place several months ago, was allowed bail in the sum of $7,600 which he readily made and was released from custody. Mr. Cariker had no trouble whatever in making the bond as he is a good honest man and his friends do not believe that he is in any way guilty of the charge against him. Mr. Cariker was in the Herald office the first of this week and said he had no fear whatever of the outcome of the case as he was entirely innocent of the charge.
Married: It has become known through friends of the contracting parties that Frank Semple of Caddo, and Miss Helen Hibberd of Nelson, were secretly married at Goodland a short time ago. The object of the clandestine marriage was that Mr. Semple wanted to complete his education before assuming the responsibilities of married life. We wish them joy. Antlers American
The above notice was found by the Herald reporter and Mr. Semple was at once hunted up and asked if it was a true statement that he was married and he said it was. He was married about the 1st of September and as the clipping state the marriage has been kept a secret up to the time that it leaked out a few days ago. The Herald extends its best wishes to the young couple and hopes that their married life may be one of pleasures and happiness.
