George Meredith. Engllah jwet and
novelist, who passed away recently In
hla unpretentious cottage In Box Hill,
Surrey, has endeared hlmaelf to En-
jilsh readers throughout the world for
many years. He waa horn In Hamp
shire. Eng.. Feb. 12. 1821. and waa left
an orphan early In life. Until the
age of 15 he was educated In Germany,
and before he waa 23 years old he had
published poems and a novel. He de
moted himself to writing. "The Ordeal
jf Richard Feverel," which waa pub
Ilshed In 1 SCO. waa received with great
praise and has been widely read since
Hla early life In London was an
unceasing struggle against poverty,
and he was hampered at the outset of
hla literary career with, pecuniary dif
Acuities. Mr. Meredith possessed In a marked
degree the three grand qualities which
are essential to the making of the nov
elist analytical power, narrative ca
pacity and humor.
A notable feature of the genius of
Meredith was his power of under
standing women. There Is hardly a
more lovable woman In any fiction
than Diana Merlon; then In "The Ad-
til OIlllK MI KKDlnt. .
vent in es of Harry Richmond" we meet
with that exquisite creation Princess
Ottilia, and In "Emilia -In England,"
with Emilia herself, the wild child of
Mr. Meredith was a serious humor
ist. His books are teplete with quaint
drolleries, but bit fun was the out
come of ills eyelial way of looking at
huti'.nn tn. tine. "Life." he says in "The
Ordeal of Richard Fevi-rel." "Is a su
preme pro'etsloii villi lionlc laughter
of gods In the bac!: ground."
The laughter Is not nil that of the
gods, for (ieorge Mendith laughed, too,
though there was u spice of sadness
In bis laughter, as one of who had
looketl out upon the world and had
found little there to cheer hitn. Nay,
Meredith's humor suggested that he
made haste to laugh lest he should
weep, and at beet his laughter was
charged with bitterness.
Mr. Meredith married twice. Ills
first wife waa n daughter of Thomas
Love Peacock, an English humorist, to
whom he dedicated one of his first
books. After twelve years his wife
died, leaving him one son. and Mr.
Meredith married again and settled
down at Hox Hill. Surrey. Ills second
wife died Sept. IT. IS.'i. leaving a son
and a daughter.
Of lato years be lived quietly at
nox Hill. He kept himself In almost
complete seclusion, seeking recreation
mainly In Ions country walks. He
was regarded ns the dean of English
nien of letters, and received from the
King the Order of Merltt. On his S"th
birthday. Feb. 21. Inst year, he was
honored by the leading literary men of
Great Hiltaln with an address of con
gratulation. His A'lierltan admirers
also sent their greetings, drawn up by
Trof. Charles 11 lot Norton, and signed
by such men as Mir; Twain. Henry
James, nichard Watson t'.llder. George
v'. Cr.lle and William Ihan Howells.
