The top of the front page has a one column heading: "34 SEAMEN PERISH AS SHIP IS WRECKED IN PACIFIC STORM" with subheads. (see) First report coverage on the SS Iowa steamship freighter disaster at the mouth of the Columbia River near Astoria, Oregon. Always nice to have notable events in history reported in this World famous publication.
Other news, sports and advertisements of the day. Complete in 36 pages, this is the rare rag edition that was produced on very high quality newsprint, with a high percentage of cotton & linen content, allowing the issues to remain very white & sturdy into the present. Given the subscription cost, libraries & institutions rather than individuals were the primary subscribers of these high-quality editions. Nice condition.
