The first page opened with a poem by titled “When a Girl Knows How” to sew, bake and knit followed by “You Home-Going Boys and Girls: Will you be in the New or the Old of the Moon?” which asked J.H. Segar what the Cheyenne and Arapho boys and girls were doing at their agency in Cantonment, Oklahoma. Page two continued the news from Cantonment by reprinting a notice of gratitude from former Cheyenne and Arapaho students, Harry Raven, Tom Carlisle and Frank Engler for gifts of donations to the Young Men’s Aid Society. Also on the page were articles that encouraged students to continue their education after returning home; reported the inaugural address delivered by Dr. George Reed, President of Dickinson College; and a Sunday School report that mentioned Outing students in Newtown, PA.

Page three contained many brief items about Outing opportunities, teacher trips, visitors to the school that included some from the Hampton Institute, improvements to the printing office, Chester Cornelius’ (Oneida) musical offering at the Opera House, and a gift of fruit for the Man-on-the-Band-stand. Page four featured a message of goodwill to her former students from A-TE-KA, who revealed her true identity as Mrs. E.G. Platt. The final article titled “Julia and Jennie Learning Just What All Young Women Should Know,” described an Outing Patron’s evaluation of the household skills of Julia Given (Kiowa) and Jenny Connors (Seminole). The page concluded with “Answers to Last Week’s Puzzles.”
