The Indian Helper (Vol. 3, No. 33)
Carlisle, PA
March 30, 1888

The first page opened with the poem, " A Proverb," followed by Jemima Wheelock's (Oneida) report of "Our Wilmington Trip," about a group of students traveling to Delaware where they stayed with families before they headed to Philadelphia with Capt. Pratt and Miss Leverett.  They visited John Wannamaker's Store, the zoo, an iron factory and the Lincoln Institute. The story continued on the fourth page. Page two mentioned Y.M.C.A. news, the Republic Debating Society's proceedings, a report about how the band was almost fooled, entitled, "Almost An April Fool;" Professor Rittenhouse's news and a notice from the Man-on-the-Band-Stand thanking staff who covered for him while he had been away. Page three featured short news briefs that featured staff, returned students, a report on bees by Jason Betzinez (Apache) and an article called "Work in the Snow," about keeping the railroad tracks clear in Washington Territory. The fourth page completed the Wilmington DE trip report followed by a letter from Frank Everett (Wichita) about his difficulty getting to school while on Outing because of the deep, drifted snow. Then came a report from Siceni Nori (Pueblo) called "My Home" about Pueblo life in New Mexico, followed by the weekly Enigma.
