The Newspaper is an item in the SNES and PC versions of Mario's Time Machine. It is the most recent issue of the Pennsylvania Gazette, published by Benjamin Franklin, which describes how today is the signing of the Declaration of Independence. He gives a copy of the Newspaper to Mario after introducing himself as a publisher. It can be given to a group of individuals at Philadelphia's Publick Inn, who ask Mario if he has read it recently. Once they have the Newspaper, they read out its contents to Mario, and they tell him that today is going to be remembered for years to come. They then elaborate on the events of the time, leading Mario to pull out the Declaration that he had in his pockets the whole time; the group reads it and immediately tells Mario to deliver it to the Independence Hall.
