It was common in the 19th and early 20th centuries for newspapers to reprint social stories and anecdotes, as well as national news, from other newspapers both in and out-of-state. While no date can be ascribed, the reverse of the clipping includes a small remnant of the "Portland Transcript" mast head, identifiable by its font.
