This uncommon Midwestern title has news of the day with many advertisements. Page 3 has an article headed: "THE IRISH SAINT" "His Day Celebrated Under Inclement Skies" "Thousands of Erin's Sons Face the Snow and Freezing Winds" "Crowds of Women and Children Throng the Streets" and more. (see) Loads of text takes up entire page and more.
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, very nice condition.
