George W. Hancock, a teenager in Chicago, put out this semi-monthly amateur newspaper.  At some point he put together sets of issues, printed wrappers, and bound them up.  The issues were printed in a variety of colors.  Two issues have crude hand-made woodcuts.  Hancock promoted his publication by saying it has “spicy sayings and eloquent editorials.”

Adopted by Lee Harrer in honor of Richard Mathews, Carl Nudi and Sean Donnelly
