looking for newspaper articles ref Fred Hans & John Hart

I'm hoping that a article similiar to the one below may have also been published at about the same time (Aug 1894) in a Rapid City newspaper.

Below is the search results for "Fred Hans" which shows an index of articles that mention his name. The results or list show only the name and date of the paper, and the Headline, and a very small box with a portion of the article. The index or article cannot be enlarged nor copied. In other words, i do not know the entire contents of the article, only what is in quotes which is my transcription.

"Tracing His Lost Brother, The Long Search of Fred M. Hans for His
Kidnaped Relative-"
Date: August 17, 1894
Paper: Omaha World Herald

“—brother. The resemblance between the members of the Hans family and Johnnie is complete, whereas he does not look at all like his foster parents.
Mr. and Mrs. Hart are separated, she living in Iowa. It is supposed by Fred Hans that the way she became possessed of Johnnie was by Randall’s having taken him out to Cheyenne after kidnapping him and giving the child---“

Dan Brown’s comments—it is unknown who conducted the interview or who wrote the preceding article. Maybe the reporter simply copied and wrote everything that he was told—by whom ? (Fred Hans or by John Hans, aka, John Hart). It is unknown who or how it was determined that John
Hans did not look like the Harts. Did the interview take place where John Hart was found ? (at the Hart Sr. ranch or in Rapid City ?). Did the reporter interview and or see any Hart in order to compare resemblance.

John Hart was found by Fred "Lone Star" Hans a motel lobby owned by McCormick in Rapid City Aug 5, 1894.

Sincerely grateful for any assistance or any additional information
