The first page continued Marianna Burgess' report of conditions at the Rosebud and Pine Ridge Sioux Agencies begun in Volume 2, including her visit to Luther Standing Bear's home. Page two reported a visit to the school by some deaf school principals who "much interested our boys with their silent ways of talking," likening manualism to Indian sign languages. A group of Omaha, Winnebago and Sioux students arrived for the new school term.

Page three told of progress with readying buildings on campus for the start of school, including the delivery of new wash stands. The death of Miss Kate Smiley, one of the hospital assistants, was reported. Page four continued Miss Fisher's account, begun in the previous issue, of the harrowing ascent to the top of Mt. Washington and the spectacular views.
