FOR THE DEMOCRATIC NOMINATION FOR

CLOUDY; LOOKS LIKE RAIN.
MISS MARIAN BROOKS.
Dr. and Mrs. Stratton D. Brooks
went to Oklahoma City this morning
and brought their daughter, Miss
Marian, home on the 9:50 train. While
very much better, and with expecta-
tion of complete recovery, she was
brought home on a cot, and it will be
some time before she will be allowed
on her feet. It will be remembered
she had an operation for appendicites
some weeks ago, and came home, but
complications set in and she had a
relapse which necessitated her return
to the hospital. The numerous friends
of the young lady and her parents
earnestly hope for her speedy re-
DEATH OF MRS. WITTE.
Mrs. Louie Witte died at her home
near the Henry Johnson place, east of
Norman, at 5 o'clock Thursday morn-
ing, July 27, 1916, of a complication
of diseases. She was aged some 30
years and leaves Mr. Witte and one
child, a son, and many warm friends
to mourn her demise, for she was a
most estimable lady. The funeral will
be held from the Baptist church on
Saturday, the body being held to await
the arrival of her mother from Iowa.
NEW FIRE AUTOMOBILE.
That red streak you noticed going
down Main street this afternoon, pre-
ceded by a honk, honk, honk, and leav-
ing nothing but a dust storm in its
rear mixed with the odor of gasoline,
was the new fire automobile. It was
in charge of the expert as chauffuer,
and it is not probable it will be so
speedy under the ehaperonage of
Chief Geo. McKinney; at least not un-
til he gets used to it. It is a power-
ful machine, capable of great speed,
and when it gets into action looks like
one of those German war automobiles
you read about.
The Transcript understands the ma-
chine is up to specifications and will
be accepted by Mayor Lindsay and
the city council. It is being limbered
up today and the demonstration will
he held Monday.
-Mr. and Mrs. H. V. Bo/.ell are
on their way home in their automobile
and expect to arrive Wednesday or
Thursday next. They have been visit-
ing in the east, and also at Kansas
City and Topeka.

"Oklahoma City and vicinity—!
Partly cloudy and unsettled tonight1

"State forcast—Tonight and Satur-

And the prognositication is a good
one. It is cloudy this afternoon, es-
pecially in the west and north and
looks like rain. News from the north
by phone says it is now raining in
the northern part of Oklahoma and
A rain would be a great benefit just
now, especially in the northeastern
part of the county, which did not get
much of the recent three-inch down-
