* Last train robbery
A trio of issues each with a front page report on the very last train robbery by Kid Curry & others of the infamous Hole-In-the-Wall gang.
The articles have heads: "Robbers Loot A Train And Shoot Passengers" with the detailed reporter taking over one-third of a column. Also: "BANDITS CORNERED" "The Great Northern Express Robbers Surrounded--Posses" "Pressing Close Upon They Retreat This Afternoon" "Jessie Morrison Sentenced--Montana Bandits Closely Pursued" "To Surround Bandits".
Each complete in 8 pages, library stamps at the very top, in uncommonly nice condition for the era. The July 6 issue has a hole in the masthead.
