There ia the same solemnity of treatment, the same long-sustained long-sustained long-sustained loading of apparently trivial details with weighty significance. significance. At the beginning the story seems to move, not heavily, perhaps, but ponderously. It increases in interest and significance, and by and by marches strongly and superbly to its conclusion.
