A week or two later the same kind doctor discovered that[Pg 239] his patient was fast losing ground. Her strength had flagged considerably in a short time. He recommended change of scene. {219} 鈥業t鈥檚 no use,鈥?she said. 鈥榊ou can have incense or Mr Keeling, but not both. And such a draughty pew as he鈥檚 got in the Cathedral!鈥? 新浪彩票手机投柱平台 {219} Whether you want to call it magnetism, polarity,electricity, thought, intelligence or charisma, it's stillattraction, and it invests everything鈥攁nimal, vegetableor mineral. We form synchronized partnerships naturally,and although they are hardly noticeable to some,they are quite tangible to others. 12 Then when the morning dawned at the rising of the sun, they said their prayers after their custom; and then went out of the cave. 8 If they were from God, they would come into the cave with us, and would tell us why they were sent." � The drill sergeant shouts the word of command in wonderful English鈥攍ept, meaning left. There are many who would laugh at the idea of a novelist teaching either virtue or nobility 鈥?those, for instance, who regard the reading of novels as a sin, and those also who think it to be simply an idle pastime. They look upon the tellers of stories as among the tribe of those who pander to the wicked pleasures of a wicked world. I have regarded my art from so different a point of view that I have ever thought of myself as a preacher of sermons, and my pulpit as one which I could make both salutary and agreeable to my audience. I do believe that no girl has risen from the reading of my pages less modest than she was before, and that some may have learned from them that modesty is a charm well worth preserving. I think that no youth has been taught that in falseness and flashness is to be found the road to manliness; but some may perhaps have learned from me that it is to be found in truth and a high but gentle spirit. Such are the lessons I have striven to teach; and I have thought it might best be done by representing to my readers characters like themselves 鈥?or to which they might liken themselves. She sat down in one of the big chairs that Keeling had brought in. That was the purpose for which he had fetched them, but for the moment he put on his employer-spectacles again to observe the unusual sight of his secretary sitting unbidden while he stood. Then the girl鈥檚 complete and unconscious certainty that she knew how to behave herself, whisked them from in front of his eyes again, and he saw only his guest sitting there, to whom were due his powers of entertaining and interesting her. In all such enterprises the name is the first difficulty. There is the name which has a meaning and the name which has none 鈥?of which two the name that has none is certainly the better, as it never belies itself. The Liberal may cease to be liberal, or The Fortnightly, alas! to come out once a fortnight. But The Cornhill and The Argosy are under any set of circumstances as well adapted to these names as under any other. Then there is the proprietary name, or, possibly, the editorial name, which is only amiss because the publication may change hands. Blackwood鈥檚 has, indeed, always remained Blackwood鈥檚, and Fraser鈥檚, though it has been bought and sold, still does not sound amiss. Mr. Virtue, fearing the too attractive qualities of his own name, wished the magazine to be called Anthony Trollope鈥檚. But to this I objected eagerly. There were then about the town 鈥?still are about the town 鈥?two or three literary gentlemen, by whom to have had myself editored would have driven me an exile from my country. After much discussion, we settled on St. Paul鈥檚 as the name for our bantling 鈥?not as being in any way new, but as enabling it to fall easily into the ranks with many others. If we were to make ourselves in any way peculiar, it was not by our name that we were desirous of doing so. Finally, there is evidence that this act of outlawry was executed so recently as the year 1850,鈥攖he year in which 鈥淯ncle Tom鈥檚 Cabin鈥?was written. See the following from the Wilmington Journal of December 13, 1850: {219} The Vicar of Bullhampton was written chiefly with the object of exciting not only pity but sympathy for fallen woman, and of raising a feeling of forgiveness for such in the minds of other women. I could not venture to make this female the heroine of my story. To have made her a heroine at all would have been directly opposed to my purpose. It was necessary therefore that she should be a second-rate personage in the tale 鈥?but it was with reference to her life that the tale was written, and the hero and the heroine with their belongings are all subordinate. To this novel I affixed a preface 鈥?in doing which I was acting in defiance of my old-established principle. I do not know that any one read it; but as I wish to have it read, I will insert it here again:鈥?
