This uncommon Midwestern title has news of the day with many advertisements. Page 4 has an article headed: "HORRIBLE HAVOC" "The Wind Manifesting Its Wrath Out West" "Death and Desolation Visible on Every Hand" "Men, Women and Children Hurled Into Eternity" 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 12 pages, minor spine wear, nice condition.
