THE~15iSTORICAL VALUE OF JANICE
When it was innounced that Paul
Leicester Frd's new novel, Janico
Meredith, was in the publisher's bands
the public wited for its appearance
with the liveliest interest; and indeed
the popularity of his former works
fully justified them in displaying so
much eagerness. What it would be
like, no one could guess, for the wri
ter's versatility is one of his most
characteristic qualities and one ot the
reasons why his works have been so
widely read. One is purely fiction;
another has a political setting; still
another has an historical basis. flis
thorough knowledge of human char
aster enables him to present his figures
to us in a most real and lifelike wa
his knowledge of the era which forms
the setting for his stories can be ;rusted
in every particular. Connecting these
two is that electrical power of combi
nation, that faculty of creating oat of
nothing which is the possession of
It is no mean skill, this art of re
cording dry facts, delinsating charac
ter and describing the times all at once,
painting them into one brilliant pic
ture that once seen is never forgotten.
Such a book is bis latest production.
It is an accepted fact now-a-days that
the historical novel has done inuch to
increase the knowledge of history
among people in general, for by put
ting facts is an interesting form. they
are impressed more forcibly upon the
reader's memory. With this book at
hand, we will not be the ones to deny
this tiuth. Give a student who dis
likes history an account of the Revo
lution to learn, and Janice Meredith
to read, and we venture to affirm that
as a result be will gain twice as murh
from the latter. In the recoid of
events as to time, place and circum
stance, Ford is minutely exact. Those
favorite toys of many writers, dates,
are brought to netice only when abso
lutely necessary, yet he follows clearly
and distinctly the struggle of our fore
fathers for liberty of thought of action
through all its shifting scenes of defeat
and triumph~. With a lively intensit y
he. displays the seeming hopelessness
of the cause-the country, half royal
st, half American in sentiment, pluno
ered by Hleseirn and Englishman; the
feeble army suffering from cold and

nander's faith and hope burns ?>right
ntil it kindles a similar flame ins the.

and surmounting every obstacle wins

petuously her warm heart leads hei
on, sometimes too far astray, int
di?iculties from which she is rescue<
only by her hard Puritan sense, ani
each time she resolves to be good "to
please mammy." Throughout thi
book there runs a streak of quaint
spicy humor and a halt conceale<
pathos, mingled with a delicate satire
which make the scenes so realistic, so
t! ne to life that the reader almos
Iforgets he is living in the nineteent]
and not the eighteenth century. Bu
swho are the actors in this great play
The leading role is occupied by Gene
ral Washington, our steadfast guide
while as subordinate characters ar
he 'familiar figures of Lee, Gates
Cornwallis, Howe and a host of oth-r,
-each has his part in the composit
whole. As clear in its outline as i
head on a cameo is the portrayal o:
Taugible, live beings they seem t<
us, of real flesh and blood. True t<
the records also are they; Lee unfaith
fal, has betrayed his trust; Gates
scheming and politic, leaves the fiel
at a critical moment; Howe with hii
fine mind is unmanned by his anima
instincts : Corn wallis, zealous but lack
lug in military ability, surrenders all
Washington the general becomei
Washington the friend and in his caml
life is conEideiate of others' comfort
anmindful of his own, always un

Until the clese of the conlict this mar
plays the principal part, and power
tully is it acted. It is easy to read hii
lifo's motive; it is easy to see how wel
Lin iives up to it. Were it not for the
orig nality which pervades each pag
o t ibe book one might almost imagine
tat the .riter had written it with i
biiry ot the United States by his
side, for be is unerring.
The drama of Paul Leicester Ford's,
in which the .times may represent the
