    Another fine example of factual "buried treasure".

    And yet it is just a blurb, like it is not too uncommon of an event... Would make headlines today.

    The "blurb" was in a paper that only circulated in Western Schuylkill County, Pennsylvania. perhaps a dozen small villages.
    I wonder if that is why.
    Perhaps a Local Sterling area Illinois paper may have done a comprehensive story, Maybe even with Followups. Pictures in 1901 papers are Rare. Not sure on that.

    Millions of Papers & Articles to go through .
