It was first called the "Trade Number," originally featuring a special press run of "extra scope and proportions," in 24 pages. Two years later, the edition had grown to "forty-eight handsome pages." By 1917, it consisted of 5 Parts of 32 pages each; this offering includes the first 3 Parts for 1914. It includes many color illustrations, including a portrait of "A Native Daughter" on the front cover of Part I. The Midwinter Number was recognized for its style and scope from other newspapers throughout the United States.
