This uncommon Midwestern title has news of the day with many advertisements. The front page has an article headed: "Sketches In Alaska" "Gold-Seeking in the Regions of Perpetual Snow" "A Russian Camping Ground" and more. (see) Lengthy text takes up almost 2 full columns.
Page 2 has: "Terrible Tornado In Kentucky" 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 the spine, very nice condition.
