An issue of "Chit Chat," the fictional illustrated weekly presented in a two-column format published by William J. Little and Ethan F. Allen, the alter egos of Arthur Nelson and Walter Nelson respectively. Included are chapters from the serialized stories, "Skating When It Is Not Fun" and "How the Hunts Became Rich" as well as the story "An Adventure on the Shore of Big Wolf" about an encounter between two trappers and Indians. Also of note is a story told from a girl's point of view, "A Curious Adventure: A Girls Story," in which a young girl recounts her encounter with a rabid dog she is forced to shoot, leading her to conclude that "boys need not think they have all the glory and honor of stories." As with other issues, there are a variety of illustrations, advertisements, poetry, puzzles and other content created and arranged to entertain and inform the boys and girls who are the intended readers.
