Still, some of those young men turn their knowledge to account in unexpected ways and places. One of them, Bernard Cron in, who was some years ago dux of Dookie, the principal Victorian farm school, and who was afterwards on the land in Tasmania, and his own State, put his knowledge of the hard ships and struggles and occasional successes of a selector's life into a story, 'Bracken,' which he entered for The Bulletin Australian Nov- j el Competition. The judges highly commended it, and the Editor, on reading it, at once secured it for serial publication. Few men who sit in editor's chairs, of big city papers ...
