[Scribus] Linked Text Frames

I am new here, and new to Scribus (and DTP, for that matter).  I just 
took over a newsletter that my wife had been publishing.  She had been 
using a combination of both MS Publisher and Pagemaker.  I transferred 
to whole thing into Scribus and I am quite happy with the results.

I still have a few issues that I am working through, all but one of them 
I have found potential solutions on the mailing list archives, so I 
won't post them here yet.

The one issue I can't seem to find has to do with linking text frames.  
I know that I can flow text from one frame to another, and I have done 
this successfully.  What I can't find is how to link text frames so that 
changing one text frame will be reflected in another. 

The specific example :

The newsletter has an issue number which is incremented every month.  
This issue appears at the top of every left hand page, and also on the 
cover page.  The instance on every lefthand page is easily handled by 
putting it in the Master Page, but I want to link the frame on the cover 
so that I only have to change the issue number in one place. Is there a 
way to do this?
