William B. Freer wrote about the second annual Southern Cheyenne and Arapaho Fair held in Watonga. He mentioned that between 2,000 and 2,500 Cheyenne and Arapaho attended the fair. Some of the events discussed were religious services; a lecture on tuberculosis and trachoma; and numerous exhibitions of livestock, produce, and farm practices. The next article, written by Superintendent Moses Friedman, argued the effectiveness of education on native peoples. Friedman discussed the role education had in the citizenry of Indians; claiming that through education, Indians were becoming well assimilated. He mentioned many former Carlisle students and their successes. J. A. Gilfillan told the story of As-i-ni-wud-jiu-web, an Ojibway medicine man, who was baptized and became a church official. In the editorial comment section numerous topics such as the reform policies of the Indian Commissioners, effective ways to suppress liquor trafficking, Indian citizenship, former students who entered the Indian Service, and athletic achievements of students were discussed.
