GILBERT PARKER'S METH
ODS OF AUTHORSHIP.
"t'nless a thine ha seized a man, has,
obsessed him, and ht fecU that It ex
exclude nit other temptations to hi tal
ent, his book will not convince," rays
Sir Gilbert Parker In one of the, prefaces
specially written for the, Imperial edi
tion of his work.. "Before nil else he
must himself be overpowered by th In
sistence of his subject."
And he rays In another: "This nt
least can bo said of nil my book, that
not n page of thorn has ever been writ
ten to order, and there Is not a story
published In nil the page bearing my
name whloh does not represent two or
three stories rejected by myself."
There Is. says one describing him,
