This uncommon Midwestern title has news of the day with many advertisements. Page 14 has an article headed: "FUGITIVE GOLD" "Which is Said to Escape from Hydraulic Mines, Etc." "Edison's Method of Saving It Not Described...." Text takes up one full column.
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 16 pages, minor irregularity along the spine, very nice condition.
