"One of the rare papers published in the provinces, described as a monthly magazine for boys. Its editor was H. Major, B.A., B.S.Sc., F.R.G.S., who most certainly made use of his titles. Its contents were very dry, and this no doubt was why the paper had a short run. In its last issue they announced that "the number of readers did not come up to expectations," and they appealed to readers to distribute copies. This must have been unsuccessful as the paper never appeared again." (W. O. G. Lofts)
