Above, the first paparazzi … With a headline in dialect, no less … Below, a nighttime intruder doesn’t suspect the woman of the home sleeps with a .32 under her pillow … 19 African Americans are arrested in a raid on a "disorderly house" at 3rd and Alameda … The man who ran the cigar stand at 5th and Wall streets kills himself after writing a note that says "bury me as cheaply as possible and don’t make any fuss about the funeral" … An African American narrowly avoids a lynching after allegedly shooting the police chief of Fayetteville, N.C. … And the Santa Fe railroad advertises trips to Coronado.
