THE WAR IN
IN SCRIBNER'S MAGAZINE
T is manifestly not the part of the magazines to furnish mere details
of the news already printed about the war, but those more unified
pictures of it which are the result of fuller description and of the elaborate possibilities of modern illustration. Scribner's is especially fortunate in having secured for such contributions the following, among others, who will write upon the subject for this magazine only:
MR. RICHARD HARDING DAVIS will contribute his characteristic, vivid descriptions, such as make readers see what he sees, the earliest of which will be « The First Shot of the War,” already in hand for the July number, The fact that he has served in this war as correspondent for the London Times will be enough to show how much he must see, and how accurately.
MR. JOHN R. SPEARS, author of Scribner's “ History of Our Navy” and chief of the New York Sun's staff of correspondents during the war, will contribute such accounts as could be written only by a man who has served in the navy as well as on a newspaper staff.
TWO WELL-KNOWN ARMY OFFICERS, of high rank, in addition to these two well-known writers, agreed to furnish papers on the war at its close, which will be valuable not only on account of their authority, but because the authors happen to have experience as writers as well as soldiers.
WAR ILLUSTRATIONS First of all, an extraordinary succession of war illustrations is in progress for the exclusive use of Scribner's MAGAZINE, by a method never before applied. If the experiment proves successful it will be hard to exaggerate the startling possibilities and importance of the device employed. In addition to this, the services of special artists were secured at the breaking out of hostilities for making sketches at the scenes of activity.
