UNIMPORTANCE OF THE PARSON POSITION. Considering tho number of novels Messrs. Besanfc and Eicc have written either separately or together, it is-singular how seldom they have maue use ot the parson. Out of Ml their stones there is not one in which a parson either ligurVs as the hero or as taking the nest most important part, Nothing (says writer in tho Church Gazette) could more clearly show the unimportance of the social position of the parson in modern society than this fact, for Sir Walter Besant, whether writing in partnership with I Mr. Bice or alone, is an author who is emphatically the iiiirror-of his age. This marked avoidance of the parson is the more surprising as their novels are so thoroughly good in tone. There is not one that even Miss Podsnap would have been forbidden to read.
