The remarkable interest in the War Papers and in the many timely articles and strong serial features published recently in The CENTURY has given that magazine a regular circulation of more than 200,000 copies monthly. Among the features for the coming volume, which begins with the November number, are :
The War Papers by Gen. Grant and others. These will be continued (most of them illustrated) until the chief events of the Civil War have been described by leading participants on both sides. Gen. Grant's papers include descriptions of the battles of Chattanooga and the Wilderness. Gen. McClelian will write of Antietam, Gen. D. C. Buell of Shiloh, Generals Pope, Longstreet and others of the Second Bull Run, etc., etc. Naval combats, including the fight between the Kearsage and the Alabama, by officers of both ships, will be described. The “Recollections of a Private” and special War Papers of an anecdotal or humorous character will be features of the year.
Serial Stories by W. D. Howells, Mary Hallock Foote, and George W. Cable. Mr. Howells's serial will be in lighter vein than “The Rise of Silas Lapham," Mrs. Foote's is a story of mining life, and Mr. Cable's a novelette of the Acadians of Louisiana. Mr. Cable will also contribute a series of papers on Slave songs and dances, including negro serpent-worship, etc.
Special Features include “A Tricycle Pilgrimage to Rome," illustrated by Pennell; Historical Papers by Edward Eggleston, and others; Papers on Persia, by S. G. W. Benjamin, lately U. S. Minister, with numerous illustrations; Astronomical Articles, practical and popular, on “ Sidereal Astronomy”; Papers on Christian Unity by representatives of various religious denominations; Papers on Manual Education, by various experts, etc., etc.
