From Nebraska... A train robber captured...

Item # 697718

March 13, 1883

THE LINCOLN DAILY NEWS, Nebraska, March 13, 1883  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 has: "A New Town in the Flourishing Valley" which is McCook. And also: "Another Flourishing Town in Lancaster Co. is Large Enough to be Talked About" which is Roca.
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.
