This uncommon Midwestern title has news of the day with many advertisements. The front page has an article headed: "The Tornado's Track" "Later Particulars of the Destruction Caused at Wesson and Beauregard, Miss., by the Storm" "Devastation and Death Mark the Course of the Cyclone" and more. (see) Lengthy text.
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 12 pages, very nice condition.
