Benjamin Solomon Mitchell

"Cap" Mitchell, 67-years old, pioneer Ellis county newspaper publisher, died at Clinton, Oklahoma, Wednesday September 8th following an illness of several years.

Mr. Mitchell came to old Day county about 1902, where he was associated with his brother Dick Mitchell in the publication of the Day County Tribune. Later he moved to Shattuck where he published the Shattuck Monitor until about 1933 when he moved to Elk City, to establish the Elk City Journal.

Mr. Mitchell is survived by two sons and one daughter, Grover, of Matador, Texas; Whitten of Wichita, Kansas; and Mrs. Lelah Kile of Clinton, also by two brothers, Lon of Clinton and Dick of Arapahoe. Mrs. Mitchell preceded him in death about ten years ago.
