It seems that back then - tears were more respectable and profitable than laugh...

Context from : The Writing of Fiction
By Edith Wharton

TELLING A SHORT STORY

But when the great Russians (who owe to French culture much more than is generally conceded) took over that neat thing, The Frenchnouvelle, they gave it the additional dimension it most often lacked.In any really good subject, one has only to probe deep enough to come to tears;and the Russians almost always dig to that depth.The result has been to give to the short story, as French and Russian art have combined to shape it, great closeness of texture with the pofundity of form. Instead of a loose web spread over the surface of life they have made it, at its best, a shaft driven into straight into the heart of human experience.
