The Indian Helper (Vol. 3, No. 28)
Carlisle, PA
February 24, 1888

The first page opened with a poem, "Sowing," followed by the article, "How the Letters Go," that described the process of express mail retrieval and distribution from trains. Then came a letter from former student John Dixon [Dickson] (Pueblo) who wrote about his experiences translating for and recruiting students for the Albuquerque Indian School. This continued on page four. The second page opened with a story, "God's Bird," and ended with account of the "Monthly Exhibition," describing the recitations and presentations by students assembled in the gymnasium. Page three was taken up with news of a new girls' reading room, Apache babies who were photographed, a new board walk built from the guard house to the railroad, visitors, items made in the shops, an article called "Doing and Being,' and an admonition from the Man-on-the-Band-Stand to "Be Polite." Page four concluded John Dixon's letter followed by the Enigma.
