THE LINCOLN DAILY NEWS, Nebraska, March 12, 1883 

* Home of the Cornhuskers

We seldom encounter Nebraska newspapers from during the Wild West era, but here is one. Lincoln is the capital of Nebraska and this issue is dated from just 16 years after statehood.
Gregory's 'Union List of American Newspapers' notes that the only institution holding any issues of this title is the Nebraska Historical Society, and they have none earlier than 1887.
The front page begins with a report: "From Arapahoe" datelined from Arapahoe, Nebraska, very descriptive of the town. Various other news tidbits.
Four pages, 12 1/2 by 17 inches, toning near the margins, small binding holes at the blank spine, a few minor margin tears, good condition.
