YESTERDAY’S NEWS -- Tales of classic scandals, scoundrels and scourges told from historic newspapers in the golden age of yellow journalism...

Josie Kensler’s Delicate Condition

Episode 400 employs a trope we’ve seen before: the cranky old farmer whose wife takes up with the farm hand and well, it just doesn’t end well for anybody. But this one, taking place near the turn to the twentieth century in rural Idaho, has its own particular set of twists, turns, and complications, and conflicting testimony between the two accused.

Culled from the historic pages of the Idaho Statesman, the Salt Lake City Tribune, and other newspapers of the era.
