This uncommon Midwestern title has news of the day with many advertisements. Page 5 has an article headed: "THE ROGUES' REGISTER" "Bill Thompson, the Kansas Desperado, Locked Up" "Attempts to Rescue Him Frustrated by Timely Precautions" and more. See image for text here.
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, very nice condition.
