How A Great Story Was
The history of any great sad sneres
fal nadertaking is always Interesting,
therefore at the risk of being ansed of
violatlag persenal oafidene, we tell
our readers of the origin of a famous
story of the late war. The publishers of
the Chicago LDnGIn wanted a story
which, besides being s love stury oflgreat
merit, should vividly describe the thrill
lag estete of the battle of Oettgdburg
and the siege of RIchaoed. One au
thor after another failed in the werk,
and at last the famous St. George Bat*
burns was approached on the subject.
He demanded a fabulous price for the
work. but it was paid, sad the story was
actually written to order. It is however,
printed under the pen nIae of "Hugh
Allen." It is deelared by ritlcs, who
have been shbown the advaee sheets, to
be the best story of the war ever written.
The Brst instalmest of It appeared I0
- No 3. Vol. zzill of the LaGrI and at
