    Ainslee’s Magazine (1898):   (about)
    The magazine began in March 1897 as The Yellow Kid, a humor semi-weekly, coat-tailing on the popularity of the “Yellow Kid” newspaper cartoons. In July 1897 it became a monthly as The Yellow Book. As the Yellow Kid boom faded, it changed format and was renamed Ainslee’s in February 1898. At first it was a general-interest magazine, with articles and stories, but in late 1902 it changed to an all-fiction format. It lasted until December 1926, after which it was merged into Far West Illustrated.
