DEATH OF MR. J. S. LINDSAY I
Again is the Transcript called upo-i I
to chronicle the death of one of its
best friends, one of the most highly
esteemed and best beloved men of Nor-
man. Mr. J. S. Lindsay passed away |
at 6:16 this morning (Wednesday
March 29, 1916), at his home, 716
North Crawford avenue.
I Mr. Lindsay was in his 78th year,
but up to the very day of his last sick- j
ness was seventy-eight years young
rather than old; youthful and taking
an interest in boyish sports to the very
j end of his life. No more honorable,
| upright and conscientious citizen ever
: lived. He was one who exemplified in
I his daily walk and conversation all
those desirable qualities and attri-
butes which go to the making of a de-
voted husband and father, a faithful
friend, an upright man and good citi-
zen, and instilled those attributes not
only into his sons, but into all with
whom he came in contact. He enters
upon his reward after a long and use-
ful life, after years full of good deeds
and good thoughts, with tne esteem
and love and respect of all who knew
him; certainly an inheritance of great
worth to bereaved wife and children,
grand children and friends.
Mr. Lindsay might be said to be u
native of three states, for wHile born
in Pennsylvania, he lived most of his
life in Missouri, and for the past twen-
ty years has been a resident of Okla-
homa. He is survived by Mrs. Lind-
say, who has gone down the pathway
of life with him all these years, and
three sons and a daughter—Harr>,
Rea and John G. Lindsay, of Norman,
and Mrs. A. J. Hitt of Maysville, Mo.
To them go out the earnest and un-
stinted sympathies of the community,
but they do not mourn as one who can-
not be comforted, for Mr. Lindsay laid
down the burden at the end of a long
and useful life, when it could be truly
said, "Enter upon thy rest, thou good
and true and faithful servant."
Mr. Lindsay has been enjoying good
health until about a month ago, when
he had a serious attack of the grip,
and never fully recovered from it.
The immediate cause of his death was
heart trouble, brought about by a
complication of asthma and liver
trouble. His end was peaceful; fit
ending of a peaceful, calm and quiet
The funerai services will be held at
the M. E. Church, South, at 3 o'clock
p. m. on Thursday, March 30, 191C,
conducted by Rev. M. L. Butler, with
burial ceremonies by Norman Lod>;e

This business was established by
Mr. J. Lloyd Bowling Borne eighteen
months ago, and was a success from

but since the death of Mr. Bowling the
entire management has fallen on the
shoulders of Miss Ina Harvey, who
was a member of the firm, and it has
been too strenuous for her. The new
firm take over a fine business, and in-
herit an excellent patronage.

government returned to Oklahoma
City this morning to again attend the
