Item # 633532
January 22, 1915
THE NEW REPUBLIC, Westerville, Ohio, January 22, 1915 An interesting Prohibition newspaper from early in the 20th century. The content within these four pages has an overwhelming bias against the sale of alcohol in all forms. The ftpg. has: "Alabama 15th Dry State" & "Struggle Is On in Washington to Banish Bar", with more inside.
In additional to prohibition articles, the front page has content concerning the potential closing of the Carlisle Indian School. The famed Jim Thorpe attended this school until participating in the 1912 Olympic Games at Stockholm.
Four pages, light browning, some margin wear with margin tears, partially loose at the spine. Should be handled carefully.
