One last example of reversed column ruling, 1873.

The Alaula was only published once a month. Whose passing do you think they are announcing in this issue?

Ke Alaula, Buke VII, Helu 10, Aoao 1. Ianuari, 1873.

One more example of reversed column rules, showing the nation in mourning, 1917.

This one from 102 years ago. Ke Aloha Aina was also a newpaper published weekly. This example is obviously reporting the passing of Queen Liliuokalani. As you look back at the old newspapers, keep your eye out for reverse column ruling, they are important.
