The first page began with a poem titled, “Easter Blossoms,” followed by a notice of “The Wedding” between Guy LeRoy Stevick and Marion Pratt, the daughter of Capt. Pratt. The ceremony was performed by Rev. Dr. Norcross of Second Presbyterian Church followed by a reception for 500 guests in the Indian School gymnasium. Also included on the page was a report about Pawnee students attending the Hampton School in Virginia. Page two included many short news briefs about students on Outing, Frances Sparhawk’s donation of books, events at the Haskell and Genoa schools, the view of the mountain from the hospital balcony window and more.

The third page included mostly one-sentence accounts regarding the Pratt-Stevick wedding, new supplies for the band, the printers vs. blacksmiths’ baseball game, trout fishing, a thunderstorm, magazine donations, and the celebration of the Pratt’s twenty-fifth wedding anniversary along with their relatives who visited for Marion Pratt Stevick’s wedding. Page four opened with a letter titled “Louis Bahylle at Haskell,” that gave news of former (Pawnee) Carlisle students Louis Bahylle and Luther Kuhns who later worked at the Haskell Indian School, followed by a piece about the evils of tobacco. The page concluded with the “Enigma.”
