This uncommon Midwestern title has news of the day with many advertisements. The front page has an article headed: "The Dixon Disaster" with subhead. (see)
Other news and advertisements of the day. 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 4 pages, a little irregular along the spine, nice condition.
