This issue was published by Lon Stansbery who had the reputation of being quite a joker. The paper is filled with tongue-in-cheek spoofs, dates much later than the June 4, 1900 date on the masthead and ads that certainly can't be taken seriously. The paper is filled with typos which I've, usually, transcribed as I found them. Lon borrowed freely from the Tulsa Democrat paper without giving them credit.
