The Caddo Herald
October 11, 1901
T. J. Dawson was up from Bells this week visiting his daughter, Mrs. W. W. Craig.
J. E. Cosgroves left Wednesday for Venus, Texas where he will visit his mother.
Lightening Monday night set fire to the barn of John Gravitt. Quite a quantity of feed was burned.
Mrs. C. E. McPherren returned Sunday from a two month’s visit to home folks in Milwaukee, Wisconsin.
W. M. Carter was here from Caney Wednesday. He told us of the new Presbyterian Church which was being erected there and that all good people were assisting them. They will give a supper there next Friday night and they want lots of Caddo people to come to it. They promise a good time and plenty to eat.
While J. F. Starks and Miss Rothwell were returning from preaching at Bennington Sunday night several boisterous young men were racing their horses on the road and ran into the buggy, breaking it and considerably bruising the occupants. The reckless and dangerous riding should be stopped. All traveling people are endangered.
Representative T. W. Hunter and W. G. Ward are in attendance on the Choctaw Council at Tushkahoma this week.
Work began this week on the new Methodist Church South building. It will be located on the lot south of Ira L. Smith’s residence and the plans call for an elegant structure, both in design, size, and finish. It will be one of the prettiest and most modern church edifices in the territory when finished and we understand the work will be speedily rushed to completion. The need of the church building is felt every dya. There is no building in town that helps it more than church buildings. They are signs of civilization. It is also the desire of prominent members of this church that this town be made a station at the next Conference, instead of being a circuit. The increase in membership and size of the town warrants this action and it is thought their petition will be favorably acted upon.
