By Miss Kate Cumming, author of “Hospital Life in the Confederate Army.” This book, which is now just from the press of Roberts & Son, is one that ought to be in the library of every Southern household, and those of the North might also learn many a lesson from it. Being a resident of the Gulf City, (Mobile, Ala.) at the opening of the war, and entering the hospitals of the Southwestern Department, the author has good facilities for compiling a most interesting history of events which transpired under her own observation. These events will be of interest and value to the the youth of our land in giving them a view of the inner life of the Southern Confederacy during the great war. The extracts from her jour. nal are a record of the heroism, manly fortitude, and manifold sufferings of the noble men who warred so long and at such great sacrific to obtain their rights. She gives details of the humane treatment wounded and sick prisoners re. ceived at our hands, going far to show the falsity of much that was said to the contrary on the other side. Price, $1, by mail, postage paid, supplied by the VETERAN.

Alf and Bob Taylor The Heroes.

They Will Travel and Lecture Together in "Yankee Doodle" and "Dixie"-A Remarkabie



N ancient Greece the art of oratory was fostered and developed by the democratic character of its in

stitutions, and the public assemblies of its cities were great debating clubs, open to all. The gift of eloquence made sure pre-eminence for its fortunate possessor. Every citizen was obliged to plead his own cause, hence the attention bestowed upon public speaking and the high degree of perfection attained by the Greeks in the difficult art of persuasion. Demosthenes and Æschines were the great rival Athenian orators, and upon one occasion all Athens and strangers from far and near gathered to hear them. The contest resulted in a "golden crown” for one and exile for the other.

The joint appearance of Hon. Alfred A. Taylor and ex-Gov. Robert L. Taylor, during the season of 1895-6, in “Yankee Doodle" and "Dixie," in the principal cities of the United States, will be a revival of the famous “War of Roses,” Alf opening the entertainment with “Yankee Doodle" and "Our Bob" closing with “Dixie.”

The tour will be under the management of Mr. C. L. Ridley, of Nashville, who, since that remarkable contest between these talented men for the Governorship of Tennessee, has been trying to bring them together again. The appearance of the brothers upon the hustings in that contest excited unusual attention throughout the country, and whenever they appeared they were greeted by immense throngs, the partisans of Alf wearing a red rose and those of Bob a white rose. When the campaign was over, it occurred to Mr. Ridley that it had ended too soon, and he began laying plans for its revival, but Gov. Taylor was in the Executive chair four years, and after that, Hon. Alfred Taylor was serving his district in Congress, and so the idea has not been feasible until now. Alf's term in Congress ended March 4, and at last the distinguished brothers have consented to appear upon the same platform on the same evening:

In East Tennessee, where the Roane and Unaka lift their heads heavenward in peaceful Happy Valley, near the banks of the beautiful Watauga, Alf and Bob Taylor were born, and lived through the trundlebed—the sunrise period of life. Too young to participate in the war between the States, they were children in a section divided against itself, and grew to man's estate in an atmosphere of intense excitement. The paternal side of the family favored the cause of the Union, the maternal side was strongly attached to the Confederacy, and so their every surrounding brought its conflicting emotions, until after a while they come upon the stage of action, when the young blood of the South had set about recuperating devastated fields and reconstructing shattered fortunes.

Hon. Nathaniel G. Taylor, the father of Alf and Bob Taylor, was a Methodist minister, and a Whig of prominence, representing his district in Congress in ante-bellum days, was Commissioner of Indian Affairs during the administration of President Andrew Johnson, and served as elector on the Bell-Everett ticket. Their

mother was the sister of the famous Democratic orator and politician the Hon. Landon C. Haynes, who was a member of the Confederate Senate. These brothers inherit in a marked degree the exceptional qualities that made their ancestors prominent, endowed with the gift of "seeing a sunbeam in every melody, and a melody in every sunbeam," a poem in every flower, and a flower in every thought, they captivate and charm; versatile and magnetic, peerless as raconteurs, they hold their audiences in perfect happiness.

Aif is a staunch Republican, Bob is above all things a Democrat. They have won their spurs on the hustings, and each enjoys the fullest love and confidence of his people. Alf was elected to the Legislature before he was of age, and had barely attained his majority when he took his first oath of office. He represented his party on the Hayes-Wheeler and Garfield-Arthur electoral tickets, and has just finished his third term in the Congress of the United States. He ranks high as an orator. His arguments are logical and brilliant, his thoughts run smooth and deep, and his perorations have the grandeur of his native mountains.

Bob served one term in Congress, was twice elected Governor of Tennessee and twice represented Democracy, for the State at large on the Cleveland and Hendricks, and the Cleveland and Stevenson tickets in the presidential electoral college. This was his political record before he was 38 years old. Since then his success in "The Fiddle and the Bow," "Paradise of Fools” and “Visions and Dreams" has been as flattering as his political record. He is a capital story-teller, a true sympathizer with all that is serious in life and a delightful cartoonist of that which is ludicrous. No man can rise to loftier heights of oratory than he.

The revivified “War of the Roses" will be something new. It is not often that two such talented men as Alf and Bob Taylor come of the same family; it is not often, that brothers become leaders of different political parties and, furthermore, no two brothers ever ran against each other for Governor before. This joint appearance will be as novel as it is original. Dissimilar in personal appearance, in contour of features, in manner and in method of thought, yet their talents are about equal, and when they meet in the War of the Roses," with

its touches of coinedy, pathos, music and eloquence, it will determine which is Demosthenes and which Æschines. That this joint appearance will materially broaden the fame of each is assured, and lovers of artistic amusement will await the beginning of this tour with pleasant anticipation.

The tour will begin in Nashville Oct. 1.--Nashville American, Sunday Morning March 10.
