The first page opened with an untitled poem that bore the first line, “No human life ere dawned on earth.” Then came an article titled “Judge Wright’s Talk,” that excerpted J.V. Wright’s discourse on the importance of the Indian students’ perseverance and the success of the Coeur d’Alene and Chippewa nations. The talk continued on page four. Page two reported the election of Benjamin Harrison, politics, Carlisle students at the Indian Meeting in Amherst, Dr. Given’s speech on rooting out evil, the availability for purchase of a new photograph of “Apache baby Eunice Mason Sois,” and the printing office’s location next to the band room. Page three featured small notices about staff, visitors, bakery and school building improvements, returned students, Pratt’s family, winter supplies, and Dr. Given’s return from Indian Territory with new Quapaw students. The fourth page concluded Judge Wright’s speech about great Indian chiefs, followed by a blurb about the banning of tobacco at the Chambersburg Academy.
