The front page has a two column headline: "3 DIE, 27 WOUNDED AS BULLETS SWEEP POLITICAL PARADE" with subheads. (see) First report coverage on the Kelayres massacre, an attack on Democratic parade marchers near Hazleton, Pennsylvania. Always nice to have notable events in history reported in this World famous publication.
Other news, sports and advertisements of the day. Complete in 52 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.
