From LoveToKnow 1911

ITEM (a Latin adverb meaning "also," "likewise"), originally used adverbially in English at the beginning of each separate head in a list of articles, or each detail in an account book or ledger or in a legal document. The word is thus applied, as a noun, to the various heads in any such enumeration and also to a piece of information or news.
