Guthrie Man Admits 13-Year-Old Murder
Guthrie...Clyde HARRISON, W.P.A. worker here, and who with his family has lived in this city several years, has confessed to a murder committed at Durant in May 1923.
Harrison, about 40 years old, had been arrested here for chicken stealing and made the confession while in jail, because he said, "his conscience had been hurting him."
Harrison, officers said, admitted killing his step father, John GOGGINS, because he believed Goggins had piosoned his mother. Harrison was convicted at Durant but was released on bond pending an appeal. It was made to appear that he had committed suicide by drowning.
Since living in Guthrie, Harrison broke jail while being held by the county on a whisky charge and was sentenced to one year in the state penitentiary for the escape, it was said, Harrison served out the time. The jail-break occurred about three years ago.

Loses Part Of Foot In Leap
Curtis BOONE, aged 26 years, 915 North 6th avenue, Durant, suffered the loss of half his right foot as the result of being dragged by an M-K-T freight train from which he tried to jump early Sunday morning. The foot was so badly mangled when he was caught and dragged by the train that it had to be amputated at the instep at the Durant hospital where he was taken shortly after the accident. BOONE, with O. J. DENNINGER, aged 17, also 915 North 6th, were returning home from Texas where they had been picking cotton. They boarded the through freight train at Denison, and when they reached Durant, BOONE tried to jump off. He was caught as he leaped and dragged about 50 feet. He was taken to the hospital in a Holmes ambulance. DENNINGER refused to jump from the train which does not stop at Durant but left the train at McAlester and then caught a south-bound freight to return home.
On the latter train he was held up by a Negro driver, robber of $2.00 and forced to leave the train at Atoka. Durant city officers and deputy sheriffs, notified of the holdup, caught the Negro when he left the train here. He was run down in a cornfield into which he ran when the train stopped at a watertank in the northeast part of town.

Mrs. ATTAWAY saw many changes in this country. When she came to Caddo there was a good town here, built on trading with Indians, the Katy railroad having been here but a few years. She has seen the wide prairies become farms, dotted with homes and schools, with ribbons of roads on every section line that she knew as unfenced, cattle grazing land with few people nearby.
In her time she has witnessed the development of meany thing that we now take as a matter of course, the telephones, radios, schools, automobiles, tractors and good roads.

C.A. HANCOCK, Pioneer Died Last Thursday
Funeral Held Saturday
C.A. HANCOCK died at his home in Caddo last Thursday night, after a brief illness, aged 80 years.
The funeral was held in the Methodist church in Caddo Saturday at 2 p.m. conducted by Rev. A.D. EGGSNER; interment in Caddo Cemetery.
Pallbearers were: Henry EDWARDS, G.S. CROSSETT, W.H. ATTAWAY, H.T. FAUDREE, John L. BOLAND and Bert FRYER, all old timers and close associates of deceased.
C.A. HANCOCK was a pioneer of pioneers in Caddo, coming here in 1871 with the M.K. & T. railway, being one of the passengers.
He first came through this country in 1868, when just a mere lad with his father, who was driving a herd of South Texas cattle to Kansas.
He clerked in Fenton and Marchand's Store some years, then went into the mercantile business for himself, and prospered greatly. He was a very enterprising merchant, and as the wide prairies became peopled, he it(sic) was who built a steel bridge across Blue at Nail's crossing, the better to get the Twelve-Mile Prairie trade.
In his lifetime he was the spirit of progress, took part in the organization of Caddo, contributed to its welfare and growth.
He was wed to Miss Dusi SIMS; is survived by her and six children; P.C. HANCOCK, Tulsa, Lee S. HANCOCK, Okla. City, Jack HANCOCK, of Caddo, Mess. Phillis HANCOCK, Okla. City, Mrs. Harold PARKER, of Shawnee, and Mrs. FAUDREE, of Atoka.
The funeral was largely attended all business houses taking time out to close in honor of deceased, who had contributed so much for the well being of his community.
It was the editor's privilege in his 38 years in Caddo to know Mr. HANCOCK well; we never knew him to say an idle word, a profane word, or to speak unkindly of any person. In his business dealings he was square, he kept his word; he helped many people in distress; he was a man to rely upon. We bought the Herald from him after his father, J.S. HANCOCK died, and we never knew him to be other than sympathetic with us in our early problems.
C.A. HANCOCK was a member of the Methodist church since 1885; he go in the last years of his life other the same house, the one in which he died last Thursday(?). Seldom did he go in are last years of his life other than to his little grocery, and to his home(again ?)
C.A. HANCOCK saw many changes in Caddo. He has shot wild deer from his home porch; he saw many prairie chickens, more common than domestic fowl; he was with the first bank; the first telephone, the first street sand sidewalks, the first brick buildings, the first roads and the first everything else in Caddo.
It was men such as C.A. HANCOCK who made our present civilization at all possible; who paved the way for us who came after, and builded upon the foundations they laid.
All honor to those pioneers who went before us.
