Item # 680537

THE EVENING TRIBUNE, San Diego, Jan. 12, 1898
* 1898 Fort Smith, Arkansas tornado
* Sebastian County F4 disaster
The top of the front page has a one column heading: "FIFTY PERSONS DEAD" with subheads. (see) Surprisingly this issue is in good condition being from the "wood pulp" era. Very hard to find issues that are not totally fragile from this era in paper.
Complete with 4 pages, 23 x 19 1/2 inches, small library stamp within the masthead, a few small binding holes along the spine, generally nice.
