This uncommon Midwestern title has news of the day with many advertisements. Page 4 has an article headed: "THE BANDIT BROTHERS" "The Iowa Outlaws in Jail at Independence" and more. (see) They would be lynched a few days later.
Page 2 has a brief item titled: "All Quiet at Dodge City" (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 10 pages, a little irregular along the spine, nice condition.
