Little is known about this periodical because copies have not been located - even the name may be incorrect.

It is thought to contain (at least) an early version of the poem Shadow-Bride.

The J.R.R. Tolkien Companion and Guide: Reader's Guide reports the publication date as being in the 1920s, but in The Annotated Hobbit, Douglas Anderson suggests that publication was slightly later - in the early 1930s.

The poem is reprinted in a revised form in The Adventures of Tom Bombadil.
