from a manner of treating the supernatural that is purely his own. He gives the suggestive hint that sets our own fancy to work, then with a half-smile he quietly offers us a matter-of-fact explanation-which, of course, we refuse to accept. But the magic that removes Hawthorne's stories farthest from everyday life is the atmosphere in which they seem to exist. The characters are real, but they are seen through the thought of the romancer.
Francis Bret Harte, 1839-1902. Four years after the death of Hawthorne there came a new voice in America's literature, this time from the far Pacific coast. The Overland Monthly had been founded, and Bret Harte had become its editor. He had gone from Albany to California, and had tried teaching and mining, had written a few poems and some parodies of various works that he had been taught to admire, but now, in 1868, he published The Luck of Roaring Camp. This was followed by other stories and poems, and in a twinkling he was famous. Bret Harte is no longer hailed as the American laureate ; but within his own limits he is master. When he takes his pen the life of the mining camp stands before us in bold outline. He is a very missionary of light to those who think there is no goodness beyond their own little circle.
