FORMAT OF INDEX:  A 3x5 card file index divided into three chronological periods: 1899-1904; 1905-1910; and 1911-1914. Within each section subjects and personal names are interfiled in one alphabet. Certain general subjects such as SCHOOLS, ELECTIONS, CHURCHES,... may appear as subdivision of a town, as well as being subdivided by a city or county. The names of businesses and other corporate bodies may appear under their own name or as subdivisions of towns. The introduction to the index should be carefully read by any user of the index. Entries consist of a brief annotation followed by the citation. The citation consists of the month, day, year, section, page and column. Codes indicate the presence of illustrations or portraits. The length of the article in lines or inches is also noted.
SIZE OF INDEX:  Approximately 38,400 entries in the total index.
