Near the bottom of the front page is a two column heading: "Police Announce Capture of Lingle Slayer; Says St. Louis Gangster Killed the Reporter" and more. (see) 1st report coverage on the arrest of Leo Vincent Brothers for the assassination of Chicago Tribune reporter Jake Lingle. Always nice to have notable events in history reported in this World famous publication.
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. Nice condition.
