HOW' STEVENSON WROTE "TREASURE ISLAND." Robert Louis Stevenson once grn phically described tbe obstacles li surmounted when writing "Treasur Island," the book that first brough fame to him. "It seems as tliousi a full-grown experienced man of lei ters might engage to turn out. 'Tren sure Island' at so many pages a day,' he said, "and keep his pipe alight. But. alas! this was not the case. "Fifteen days I stuck to it and turn ed out fifteen chapters; and then, li the early paragraphs of the sixteenth, ignominiously lost hold. My mouth was empty; there was not one wort? of 'Treasure Island' in my bosom: and here were the proofs of the begin ning already waiting me at the 'Ham and Spear!' "Then I corrected them, living for the most part alone, walking 011 the heath at Weybridge in dewy autumn mornings, a good deal pleased with what I had done, and more appalled than I can depict to you in words a! what remained for me to do. "I was thirty-one; I was the head 0! a family; 1 had lost my ...

he thill Iigg fless With which is Incorporated the "Nhill Mail." TUESDAY, 27th JANUARY. A Liberal Measure. THE gratifying success of Mr Watt and his colleagues, the ending of little differences in the Liberal Party are, it is to be hoped, the prelude to earnest work in Parliament. One of the urgent measures requiring im mediate attention is the Workers' Compensation Bill. To some extent it has always been recognised that the man who is disabled whilst about his work iB entitled to compensation. Even when the law was wholly un satisfactory many wealthy employ ers, and many Iwealthy companies, treated those who were maimed whilst about their work with gener osity. But there are some mean and many poor employers. The mean one will not pay if by any legal quibble he can escape his liability; the poor one can not pay, for he is fighting hard for a bare livlihood. The measures submitted by the Watt Ministry last session provides for all these cases. It makes the in surance of employes com...

MANURIAL TESTS. [Newspaper Article] — Nhill Free Press — 27 January 1914
MANURIAL TESTS. In connection with a scries of plots laid down at Rutherglcn and Longer enong and Wyuna, tests have revealed some interesting facts regarding manures. They were laid down for the purpose of finding out the effect of using heavier dressings of superphosphates than are customary in the wheat areas. One plot was not manured, one was treated with 501b of superphosphates, and a third with 1 cwt of superphos phates. From the results it would appear that heavier applications of superphosphates could he used with advantage than are customary in the wheat areas. The average amount used throughout these areas is about 5 jlb to 60lb per acre. The heavier dressing of superphosphates not only gave a higher net return per acre the first year, but the indirect effect of them was a greater stimulus to subsequent growths of grass and pastures than wa~s the case with light dressings. The rssults are more interesting for the reason that owing to the dry winter the fullest odvantage of ...
