* Karl Strahl lynching - hanging
* Goetz murders
This uncommon Midwestern title has news of the day with many advertisements. Page 3 has an article headed: "HORROR'S HARVEST" "Carl Strahl, the Double Murderer, Executed by Judge Lynch" "The Murderer Leads His Captors to Where Goetz's Body Rests" "'Up with Him!', is the Cry, and He Swings By the Neck in the Air" and more. (see) Lengthy 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, minor irregularity along spine, very nice condition.
