ST. LOUIS GLOBE-DEMOCRAT, Missouri, February 11, 1880
* Outlaw Frank James
* Mardi Gras carnival
This uncommon Midwestern title has news of the day with many advertisements. The front page has an article headed: "Frank James Again"
Page 4 has: "A Mimic Mardi Gras" "The Streets of the City in the Possession of Merry Masqueraders Last Night" and more. (see) Text takes up more than two 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 the spine, nice condition.
