The article title is 'FOREST GROVE CARS RUNNING' with the dateline 'Forest Grove, Or., Aug. 11.' The article reads 'The Forest Grove Transportation company cars are now running again after a delay of a week, caused by the burning out of the transformers at the plant up Gales creek. The plant formerly owned by the town will also be used and a new generator will be installed soon. The accompanying picture is of a passenger car at the intersection of Main street and First avenue, north.'
