* Fergus Falls, Minnesota tornado disaster
* World War I official end nears (Versailles Treaty)

This 24 page newspaper has one column headlines on the front page: "CYCLONE TOLL PLACED AT 60", "More Than 100 Injured When Triple Twisters Strike Fergus Falls, Minn."

Other news of the day including various advertisements and much on the ending of World War I. Light browning with some margin wear, otherwise good. Should be handled with care.
