The Indian Helper (Vol. 3, No. 6)
Carlisle, PA
September 16, 1887

The first page opened with the poem, "Bang Away," followed by the story of a Carlisle girl who was horrified to return home to unsanitary conditions, continued on page four. This appears to be the beginning segment of a serialized story of a girl who returned home to the challenges of putting her new-found skills learned at Carlisle, in practice. Page two was filled with advice for boys and girls attending the school, including a list of what the Man-on-the-Band-Stand "likes to see." Dennison Wheelock (Oneida) was managing newspaper subscriptions and Miss Ely was the banker. The names of the girls who came in from country homes were listed.

On page three, information was given about the Philadelphia parade celebrating the centennial of the Constitution, in which many of the school boys and the band would participate. The fourth page featured an article, "The Road to Success" about famous men who persevered through hardships to become successful.
