Fort Dodge Daily Chronicle

Fort Dodge, Iowa, Tuesday evening, January 14, 1908

From Pam in Gresham, Oregon. She has no connection with Fort Dodge, but she had discovered this newspaper. The paper had been placed in the back of a mirror. Her sister purchased the mirror in Montana, she knew Pam would love the mirror. When Pam went to restore the mirror she found this piece of history, and she kindly typed the contents pertinent to genealogy for the Webster County Web Site.
