Guthrie, Ok. May 25 - The flood situation throughout Oklahoma is vastly improved today, although there has been but little traffic resumed on the railroads because of many brides being out....Practically all of the bridges are out on the Santa Fe between Guthrie and Pawnee. In order to save railroad bridges long strings of freight cars were used to weight them down, and armies of men with long poles kept the drift away.

Guthrie, Ok., June 5. Heavy rains have greatly added to the flood damage throughout Oklahoma.....Heavy rainfall in Kay, Pawnee and Osage counties, has brought the stream nearly to the danger point. A number of Pawnee County bridges went out today and several lives are reported lost.
