Based on announcements in other Montana newspapers, the first issue of the Missouri Valley Index was published on April 23, 1913 with Frank T. Sheppard as the editor and publisher. Unfortunately, only one issue of the Missouri Valley Index is known to have survived, October 15, 1914. Almost all of this issue is local or state news, covering business, marriage, death and travel in addition to discussions of both the state primary law and initiative measure no. 7 relating to industrial insurance, which we would call workers compensation today. Content from the Missouri Valley Index was often reprinted in The Broadwater Opinion in the Toston News Item section, though this Townsend newspaper referred to it as the Toston Index.
