Launched as a twenty-five cent monthly in July 1888, quickly became a major rival of two other New York miscellanies, high-quality digest of literary gossip and news, poetry, short stories, and features on topics of the day, i.e. "Will Aviation Be a Blessing or a Curse to the Race?", "Is Helen Keller A Socialist?" Many advertisements, photos, drawings, and graphics of all kinds as well as cartoons, political mostly, a fascinating look into the lives of the people of the world in that time period.
