Item # 648175
November 6, 1879
ST. LOUIS GLOBE-DEMOCRAT, Nov. 6, 1879
* Jesse James killed ?
* Outlaw - train robber
The ftpg. has column heads responding to the rumored death of Jesse James reported in this newspaper 2 days prior (was not true): "THE STIFF SECRETED" "Jesse James Succeeds in Disappearing" "The Detectives Battled by the Bandits" "Not the Slightest Trace of Their Hiding Place". The report begins: "The much mooted question as to whether Jesse James, the famous outlaw, is dead or not, is no nearer a solution than on Monday when the news was first flashed over the wires that he had been shot & killed by Gus Shepherd..." with more taking most of the column.
Page 3 has over half a column headed: "THE JAMES BROTHERS" "An Incident Connected with the Outlaws After the Gad's Hill Robbery".
Ten pages, light damp stain in the ftpg. heads with a minor repair affecting a few letters (see), generally nice condition.
