1950 Centennial History Granby? Days of Terror?

In his history of the tri-state mining district, "Wilderness Bonanza" (1972), Arrell Gibson draws early Granby history from the Centennial Edition, June 1, 1950, of the Granby News Herald.

The Missouri State Historical Society's list of microfilmed newspapers does not include this paper. Does anyone have a photocopy they could share or know of a library that has this? Gibson found it somewhere.

I am particularly looking for a source of information on Granby and Newton County from the end of the Civil War in 1865 through 1869, with an emphasis on problems of violence, vigilance committees, etc. Goodspeed's (reprint page 202) says an 1875 killing in Granby "revived a memory of the days of terror." What were the days of terror? Newton County has surviving papers from January 1870 forward that don't suggest anything like this, so it was apparently just after the war.
