Years in print:
The Illustrated Home Journal began publishing in 1895, and belongs in the "popular literature class," containing stories, short papers, poems, and household, children's and humorous departments. It is generously illustrated but the German idioms that abound in its English content will preclude its ever becoming popular with the large classes of American readers.
