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.”
