* Jesse James gang
* Train robbery
The top of the front page has a very nice account of the Gad's Hill train robbery, done by the James-Younger gang, although their identity was not know at the time of this report. The head reads: "The Train Robbery" with subhead: "Further Particulars of the Crime--The Daring Actions of the Robbers--The Thieves Unknown, but a Clue Supposed to Have Been Found". The article has nice detail concerning the robbery and the search for the outlaws (see hyperlink for more on the robbery).
Eight pages, Irregular at the spine with some loss but not affecting any text, otherwise very nice.
