* Early Al Capone report

* Alcohol - beer - prohibition era
* re. Frankie Yale Uale murder
Page 25 has one column headings that include: "CAPONE PUTS 5 HERE DAY UALE WAS SLAIN" "Politicians See Gangster" "Track Capone Gangsters" and more. Coverage on Capone this early are somewhat rare, prior to the St. Valentine's Day massacre. Always nice to have notable events in history reported in this World famous publication.
Also on page 25 is a report that states that cigarette smoking does not cause cancer. (see)
Other news, sports and advertisements of the day. Complete in 48 pages, this is the rare rag edition that was produced on very high quality newsprint, with a high percentage of cotton & linen content, allowing the issues to remain very white & sturdy into the present. Given the subscription cost, libraries & institutions rather than individuals were the primary subscribers of these high-quality editions. A few small binding slits along the spine, very nice condition.
