This uncommon Midwestern title has news of the day with many advertisements. Page 2 has an article headed: "WOMEN'S WORDS" "Second Day's Sitting of the Woman Suffrage Convention" and more. (see)
Also: "The Colored Caucus" "How the Condition of the Negro May Be Bettered" and more.
Page 3 has: "The Mormon Marriage" "A Polygamous Priest Sentenced for Contempt of Court" and more.
See images for partial text. 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 damp staining (see), very nice condition.
