Death Of J. M. Robertson
Monday morning last, Mr. J. M. Robertson died at his home about four miles west of Holdenville after about twenty-five minutes of acute suffering. Dr. Butts was called to him by phone and made a hurried trip in his automobile, but death occurred a few moments after the doctor arrived. Though a satisfactory diagnosis was not practical at the time, the indications were death came from a type of heart decease.
Mr. Robertson has been in and about Holdenville for a number of years and has been an active, useful citizen and had many friends.

Miss Luelia Robertson, of Iola, Kansas, was called home to attend the bedside of her mother, Mrs. Laura Robertson, who passed away Tuesday night.
