CAN THE TITANIC BE RAISED? A scheme is on foot to raise the Titanic, the Xl\'.HiQ,00l' liner th:it struck an iceberg and sank wj:h im mense treasure. A Denver engineer hus elaborated a plan by which he thinks the Riant boat could he brought to the surface. In some steel mills electric magnets lift musses of steel and iron weighing as much as 150 tons. Why not udapt this idea to the Titanic? says the en gineer. His scheme is to lower all round the sunken vessel a large number of pow erful magnets operated from small steamboats, one boat to each magnet. These magnets. energised by electric currents, would be forced against the side of the steel ship, and when power was applied and the cables attaching the magnets to the smaller boats wound up, the Titanic would be lifted clear of the ocean bed and permit divers to make necessary repafrs. pump the water out of the vessel, and get I er afloat again.

LITERARY DOCTORS. [Newspaper Article] — Nagambie Times — 25 December 1914

LITERARY DOCTORS. ! The fact that the celebrated Amer ican lihysicinn, Dr. Silas Weir Mitch ell, who died recently at Philadelphia, had a distinct reputation in the liter* ary world as a poet and novelist, calls to mind several other instances of re lationship between pill and quill. Dr. .Mitchell's best novel was "Hugh Wynne, Free Quaker," which deals with the period of the revolution, and has created almost as much interest as some of the stories of Sir Arthur Conun Doyle, who got his ideas for "Sherlock Holmes" while walking the Edinburgh infirmary under the eye of that remarkable surgeon, Dr. Joseph Hell. Another Scottish doctor, Dr. John Brown, was.the immortal author of "Rab and His Friends." Ricardo Ste phens, the author of "The Cruciform .Mark" and •"The Wooing of Grey Eyes," practises aud writes in Brora, Sutherlandshire, in fliu heart of a deer forest. Sir Frederick Treves, who has achieved the highest eminence qu a surgeon, has since become one of ihe most widely-read aut...

"What do you want to break up the party for?" asked another. "Be a good fellow." said n third. Now that ''Be a good fellow"—well, every man knows what that means. Every man has done something ho did not want to do and ought not to have done for fear someone might think he was not a "good fellow." The young man hesitated. "No; I think I had better go," he said at last. "Nonsense! It's early yet!" pro* tested one. "Sit down! Sit down! We'll all be home before twelve," added another.

BOOKS. 0 silent volumes on my shelves, That hold the deathless and divine, Ye have but to reveal yourselves, And 1 am yours, as ye are mine! Mere ink and paper though ye he, As Bhells wherein no life appears— If hand but touch and eye but see, Then mind meets mind across the years. Dante and Shakespeare speak once more, Beethoven 6ingo his soulful strain; And in the unsealed tombs of yore Wake all the passion, all the pain. , They are not dead, these silent ones, Nor dumb, but eloquent with light, And sparkle like the infinite suns Beyond our reach, though in our sight. Like melodies that once have thrilled, And in the mem ry never die, Those calm, majestic voices 6tillcd Come echoine: from eternitv. —John Hall Itigham.
