The first page began with the poem, "Nobility," by Alice Cary followed by "A Letter from a Dear Old Lady of Eighty Years of Age," who shared her childhood recollections of life among the Tuscarora Indians camped on her family's land in Canada, some of whom became her playmates. This letter was continued on the fourth page. The second page carried an article, "People Who Learned to Work," on the merits of hard work.  The page also included a brief history lesson about General Meade, a report called "Our Exhibition" which was a full account of the first entertainment of the school season. Page three featured news of  teachers, visitors to the school, and a birth announcement of a daughter to Apache students, Neal and Annette Sose [Suison]. The fourth page included letters from Carlisle students who had returned to the Pine Ridge Sioux Agency.
