THE VETERAN in 1895

1. Will maintain its high character as the defender of the truth of history, and keep in

mind its name, made sacred by the blood of thousands of beroes.

2. It will be rich each month in truthful history, of incidents, and of chivalric deeds.

3. THE VETERAN will ever give prominence to the "private" who did the real work, while

it will in no wise forget the officer who bore the gravest responsibilities.

TAE VETERAN provides a means of free communication between comrades in its

“Camp Exchange," and requests items of interest from writers who were there and who can bave no successors.

5.

THE VETERAN has a large list of contributors in all parts of the South, and its in

The Veteran sent to any address for $1 per year.

Auence will tend to the upbuilding and development of our dear land.

6. THE VETERAN will revive the words and music of songs so pathetic and charming,

peculiar to the South during the dark days of '61-65. Subscribers will in that way secure music several times over more than the price of THE VETERAN.

7. THE VETERAN in its “Camp-Fire Story Department" will be interesting, amusing and

often deeply pathetic. Friends are requested to send clippings or write experiences, giving true war stories, such as they would tell their children. It desires to make this one of the leading features.

8. THE VETERAN will look after the "Sons" and "Daughters" with particular interest.

In fact, it will be the best journal that can be made in supplying accurate and
truthful information about our people, and in the industrial and agricultural de-
velopment of the land we love so well.

“When a boy, I was subject to croup, the last attack being when about twelve years old. The doctor had almost given me up, cvery remedy that he tried having failed to afford relief. At last, he gave me Ayer's Cherry Pectoral, and a speedy cure was the result. I have always believed that Ayer's Cherry Pectoral saved my life, and often recommend it to others.” – W. S. TURNER, Norwood, Ga.

Wilson Trousdale, McCains, Tenn.: Please inquire, through the VETERAN, if Wallace Fields, of the Seventh Texas Infantry is living. If so, will be glad to have his address. I will never forget his kindness to me when, a boy sixteen years old, I was sick and a prisoner at Camp Douglas.
