1907 copy Williamson County Sun

I have a copy of the May 9, 1907 Williamson County Sun. It is 4 pages in fair condition. There is some wear, but it`s mostly legible. There is a story about a Miss Tennie Askew who lived on a farm and noticed something was "depredating' her chickens. So she placed 2 chickens, "highly seasoned with strychnine", and waited. The next morning she discovered "two large wolves cold in death`s embrace". It was suggested that she should be the guest of honor at a neighborhood dinner.
Is there an active historical or genealogical society or library in Georgetown that would preserve this paper and share it with anyone interested?
