General Description and Notes:

Grindstone Bee (SD, 1906)

The date hints that it may be a spoof. Other indicators, such as the subscription rates on page 3 (“One year: cord of wood; six months: bushel of beans; three months: slab of bacon; one month: shave & hair cut”) and the motto,” Don’t kick if you happen to get stung,” also point toward an “April Fool’s” edition paper.
