The first page opened with a poem, "Big Fraid and Little Fraid" followed by an article, "Another Pleasant Evening in the Chapel," that detailed the entertainment featuring numerous students reciting or singing poems, songs and reports. It continued on page four, which is missing from the collection. Page two included a reference to the borough's literary society activities reported in the local newspaper and suggested that the Carlisle Indian School's literary society might do the same by reporting their news to the Man-on-the-Band-Stand. Other news items focused on the election of the officers of the Y.M.C.A., the virtues of politeness and tidiness, reports of sleighing and tobogganing, and news about harnesses made in the leather shop being sent to Philadelphia. Page three reported news that Capt. Pratt, his daughter, and several Indian School girls were visiting Washington, D.C.
