This uncommon Midwestern title has news of the day with many advertisements. Page 2 has an article headed: "CALENDAR OF CRIME" "A Negro Fire-Bug Murdered by a Mob at Marianna, Ark." 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 20 pages, minor irregularity along spine, very nice condition.
