The front page has: "A Dead Desperado" "The Secret of His Life Dies With Him" "His Identification as One of the Huntington Bank Robbers". This is concerning the Huntington, West Virginia Bank Robbery committed by Jesse James-Younger Gang (see hyperlink). One of the subheads is: "Jesse James' Death" noting in part: "...that the wounded robber died Sunday morning...hemorrhage set in & they informed him that he could live but a little while longer..." with more. They were wrong in presuming it was Jesse James who died.
