The paper’s motto was “Perseverance conquers all things.”  The pages are filled with moralistic encouragement for young girls to have proper manners, to look for men who are moral and honest, to exercise their intellectual abilities (not to be idle), etc.

Several items are addressed “to the little girls of our association.”  Vol. 1, No. 3, includes two editorials, True Nobility, House-keeping, Kindness, Letters from Aunt Lou, Good Manners, Prayer, Cheerfulness, My Attendance at these meetings, To [sic] Late, and Cheerfulness at Home.

The stories appear to have been written by the young girls of the mutual improvement association and some of the elder women advisers.
