This uncommon Midwestern title has news of the day with many advertisements. Page 5 has an article headed: "America's Oldest Circus-Rider" "The Death of Samuel P. Stickney After Fifty Years' Service in the Ring"
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, nice condition.
