(Pictorial Press.) r BOOKS of INTEREST Having once been the ,victim of a literary hoax, chapter one, on the sub- ject, in "Books in Black and Red," by mnuna Lester'Pearson invited me to come within. I (lid, only to find, that the hoax that had caused my price to fall had also victimized a dean or an archdeacon. From my friends, I have learned that even those of greater ec- clesiastical rank had a mm:_'ar experi- ence, but Mr. Pearson must tell of'the one he knows. "If the writer," he says, "believes every statement he finds in print, and passes them on to lfis readers, sooner or later he will get bitten. And then lie accepts with good humor the joke upon himself, or else (if his self-im- portance is greatly over-developed) ]becomes furiously angry with the au- thor, and denounces him in words of fire and brimstone• "I have heard," said a Chmxhman of some rankI think he was a Dean or an Archdeacon, for I remember he reminded me of Trollope"I have heard that that book is really ficti- tious from beginning to end." I And he glared at ae as if e in- tended to follow his remark with a I mediaeval curse. I told him that 1 had heard the same thing from good authority. • "Well," he said, pounding the table, "the man who would do that is a i hound' an absolute houndW I could not understand his wrath; the author's skill had aroused my ad- miration. But the Archdeacon's sense of devotion had been outraged• The book was "The Life of John Wilnam Walshe," by Montgomery Carmichael --one of the most inexplicable exam- ples of the literary hoax. There are two outward signs of the biography as distinguished, as with many other books of fact compared with those of fiction; by some ancient convention it is supposed to be larger in size and higher in pace. The Walshe book fol- lowed the latter of these require- rhents, unless I am mistaken, but not the former. Its size was that of a novel• It contained not one atom of satire, it was not a parody, and so far as I, at least, could have discovered by internal evidence, it was what it purported to be: a sober and rever- ent biography of an Englishman dwell- ing in Italy, a devout member of the Church of Rome, and in particular an enthusiastic student and pious fol- lower of St. Francis of Assisi. But John William Walshe, his an- cestors and his family, his extraor, dinary literary labors, the close par- allel og. his saintly life to that of his examples, St. Francis, and finally his death, in the odor of sanctity and un- der the Papal blessing, were all of them invented by .Mr. Carmichael-- a member of the British Consular service in Italy, and the author o2 a number of volumes mainly works cf fact. Why my Archdeacon could not have rejoiced at the creation of an imaginary character, whose piety he so much admired, is hard to explain, except on the ground that his self- esteem had been hurt because he had been fooled." It is good to know that if one has to fall, he can fall in'with such good company. Most of the books of the Old Tes- tament were written in Hebrew. A few were written in.,Aramaic.
