This uncommon Midwestern title has news of the day with many advertisements. Page 4 has an article headed: "INDIAN PICTURES" "Scenes in the Camp of the Vanquished Nez Perces" "The Spirit of a Brave Tribe Crushed and Broken" and more. (see) Text takes up about 1 3/4 columns.
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 spine, nice condition.
