This uncommon Midwestern title has news of the day with many advertisements. The front page has an article headed: "THE SPUNKY SKELETON" "Dr. Tanner Persists in His Perilous Undertaking" "His Rebellious Stomach in an Improved Condition" and more. (see) Text takes up 1 1/2 columns.
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 10 pages, a little irregular along the spine, nice condition.
