The top of page 2 has a one column heading: "A POINT FOR HOLMES" with subheads. (see) Coverage near the beginning of the trial against H. H. Holmes for murder. Holmes is considered to be America's first serial killer. Nice to have in a publication close to Philadelphia, the city where the trial took place.
Complete with 4 pages, light toning at the margins, irregular along the spine, generally good. Should be handled with care.
