* W.W. Cole's Circus & Menagerie
This uncommon Midwestern title has news of the day with many advertisements. Page 3 has an article headed: "In The Lion's Den" "A Horrible Spectacle at Cole's Circus and Menagerie" "Torn to Pieces by a Ferocious and Untamed Leopard" and more. (see) Text takes up almost 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, nice condition.
