How A Great Story Was
The history of any great and successe -
al undertaklng is always Interesting,
therefore at the risk of being aconueed of
violating personal confidence, we tell
our readers of the origin of a famous 1
story of the late war. The publishers of
the Chicago LEDGER wanted a story
which, besides being a love story of great d
merit, should vividly describe the thrill
long eets of the battle of Gettgsburg
and the siege of Richmond. One au
thor after another failed in the work,
and at last the famous St. George Rath
burne was approached on the subject.
He demanded a fabulous pries for the
wurk, but it was paid, and the story was
actually written to order. It is however,
printed under the pen name of "Hugh
Allen." It is declared by erntics, who
have been shown the advance sheets, to
be the best story of the war erer written.
The irst instalment of it appeared in
No , Vol. isili of the LlDoEs, and at
once attraeted the greatest attention.
A private letter from the editor informs
as that in order to rsebh all class of peo
ple, the publishers of the Laboua will
mall the opening ehapters of the story
free of charge to all who send in their
ames at once. The LaOosa is a great
paper, and each week gives dtory matteri
to make a dollar book. Address
