The front page reports prices of commodities, e.g. cotton, western gauze, textile, steel, coal, wood, flour, rice, ivory, rhinoceros horn, sulphur, dry seafood and stock markets. Local and world news are on pages two and three, but most of the content is business related. Notices and advertisements appear on page four.
