The Evening Item was a daily newspaper published by the Wright Brothers' Company, Item Publishing Co. This paper, published from April 1890 through July 1890, focused on world and local events. This Saturday edition of The Evening Item was published in two separate parts, but the two parts have been combined here for ease of reading. The front page of this issue features a story about the business manager of the Springfield Democrat afflicted with "mania" after a dog bite, a report about improved trade across the country, news about John Carlisle, who replaced James Beck in the Senate, and more. On the second page there is news of casualties from a recently collapsed mine in Pennsylvania and commentary on Thomas Edison improving upon his telegraph. On the sixth page there is a story about the processing of making maple syrup as well as an analysis of a the next day's Sunday School lesson. Also included in this two part issue are short stories, anecdotes, local and regional news, advertisements and more.
