The first page opened with a poem, "Boy and Man," followed by "Two Carlisle Indian  Boys Stop Under the Walnut Tree, and Talk," contrasting an honest, hard working boy to a lazy, ungrateful boy. It continued on the fourth page. Page two featured news and greetings from returned students, an article "School Room Sentences," that encouraged using words properly, news from town, and printing news.

The third page featured many small news items - including a new road from the guard house to the railroad, fencing in the baseball ground, runaway boys, Miss  (Frances) Sparhawk as substitute teacher, a group of sick boys who returned to Pine Ridge Agency, and some Apache boys who sent messages to their parents who were prisoners of war at Mt. Vernon barracks and Ft. Pickens. Page four continued the conversation from page one and ended with a "Square Word" puzzle.
