The novelist's art is, indeed, a noble one when it is used to awaken the indignation of the public against legal or social wrongs, against folly and tyrannical usage, or oppres­ sion of any kind. Think of the tremendous •work done by "Uncle Tom's Cabin." And was there ever such a sermon preached against inhumanity, as it existed in English prisons, as in Charles Reade's "Never Too Late to Mend?" It was the agitating cause of a mighty prison reform throughout the king­ dom. And Dickens showed the stupidity, the folly, the cruelty of the debtor's prison, until even English justice turned against it. And it is to the novelist that we owe our knowledge of serf­ dom in Russia, of the heroic struggles...
