This uncommon Midwestern title has news of the day with many advertisements. Page 5 has an article headed: "OLD JOHN BROWN" "Executed as a Felon in Virginia" "But Canonized as a Martyr in Kansas" "Formal Dedication of the Monument at Osawatomie" and more. (see) Lengthy text takes up 3 full columns. See images for portion.
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 spine, nice condition.
