This uncommon Midwestern title has news of the day with many advertisements. Page 2 has an article headed: "ROSH-HA-HANAH" "The Jewish New Year and Its Observance in St. Louis" and more. (see) Text takes up over 1 1/2 columns.
Page 7 has: "ERICSSON'S NEW TORPEDO" "Dynamite and Gunpowder to Fight the Ironclads" and more. (See)
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, irregular along the spine, nice condition.
