This uncommon Midwestern title has news of the day with many advertisements. The front page has an article headed: "ANOTHER ANGOLA" "A Train Plunges Through a Bridge" "Death Met in its Most Hideous Forms" "The Passengers Drowned, Burned and Frozen" and more. Text takes up over a full column.
This issue is not fragile as newsprint back then was made of cotton and linen rags, allowing them to remain very pliable and easy to handle. Complete in 8 pages, a little irregular along the spine, nice condition.
