How A Great Story Was
The history of any great and success
ful undertaking is always lnteresting,
therefore at the risk of being accused of
violating personal confidence, we tell
our readers of the origin of a famous
story of the late war. The publishers of
the Chicago LEDGEt wanted a story
which, besides being a love story of great
merit, should vividly describe the thrill
ing etents 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
baurne was approached on the subjeet.
He demanded a fabulous price for the
woek, but it was paid. and the story was
actually written to order. It is however,
printed under the pena name of "Hugh
Allen." It is declared by critidc, who
have heen shown the advance sheets, to
be the best story of the war ever written.
The first ibstalment of it appeared in
No 3, Vol. xxiill of the LEDGER, and at
once attracted the greatest attention.
A private letter from the editor informs
us that in order to reach all class of peo
pie, the publishers of the LBEDGE will
mail the opeoning chapters of the story
free of charge to all who send in their
names at once. The LEDGERa is a great
paper, and each week gives story matter
to make a dollar book. Address
