War Veteran Passed Away

Charles McElwee, a veteran of the Spanish American war, son of Mrs. Mary McElwee, Fifth and Walnut Streets, died this morning from pneumonia after an illness of five weeks. The McElwee home is quarantined, a grandchild of Mrs. McElwee being ill with scarlet fever.

Mr. McElwee was 36 years old and was one of the finest young men of our city. At the outbreak of the Spanish-American war he enlisted and made an excellent war record for himself fighting for the Stars and Stripes.

He was a member of Lawton Camp No. 29 United Spanish War Veterans. His many friends are grieved to learn of his death.
