Two Durant Homes Burglarized Sunday
Between Saturday night and Sunday morning the homes of Mr. and Mrs. Oriner Perkins and Mrs. Stevens, who lives on North Third Street, were entered by burglars.
The burglars were alarmed by the screams of Miss Stevens, who failed to recognize the intruders. At the Perkins home they ransacked dresser drawers but nothing was missed.
Footprints were found in the yard, but the blood hounds used could not follow the scent as some drug had been used for that purpose.
At the home of Mrs. Bud Manning on Saturday evening, March 8th, at 8 o’clock, Mr. Oscar Freeman and Mrs. Lizzie Manning were married. Only a few friends witnessed the ceremony by the officiating minister, B. S. Smiser.
Mr. Freeman has recently returned from service and is a home boy, well known by Caddo people as an industrious, successful farmer boy. Mrs. Manning has also lived in Caddo for about all her life and has many friends. The good wishes of all are with this couple who are now entering upon a new life and work.
Caddo Man Arrested
Saturday afternoon, March 8, Sheriff Dave Wright and Deputy Robinet went to Caddo and arrested Mac Johnson and brought him to this city where he made bond for violating the prohibition law. It is charged that Johnson had been selling cider with a severe “kick” in it and that it would make the drinker intoxicated. In fact, a man was placed in jail Thursday for being drunk on the cider.
Sheriff Wright also confiscated the cider which consisted of two sixteen gallon kegs, five gallons in another keg, and over one hundred bottles ready for sale. The price of the cider was $1.00 per bottle. Durant Democrat
