Columbia Missouri Statesman recovered from the time capsule before it was flattened and cleaned.

[C;0/45/11 OSF 1]

This is a copy of the Columbia Statesman that was placed in the time capsule. The paper is from December 15, 1899. After drying, the sheets were in such good shape that they were cleaned, encapsulated, and kept with the collection. On the larger image, taken after the initial drying, one can see bits and pieces of other items from the time capsule still attached to the front page.
