This uncommon Midwestern title has news of the day with many advertisements. Page 7 has an article headed: "THE DEVIL'S OWN" "Their Brutal Butchery of a Clark County Family" "Four Children and Their Father Murdered for Money" "The Most Damnable Crime in the State's History" and more. (see)
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 8 pages, minor irregularity along spine, very nice condition.
