THEY TRIED AGAIN. "T.orna Doone" went to many pub lishing houses before 0110 firm agreed to bring it out. "Tom Jones," to which Dickens ack nowledged the greatest indebtedness, ] tailed altogether to obtain publication until Fielding had made a name as a dramatist. "Uncle Tom's Cabin" was refused by a dozen publishers, and it was at length brought out In serial form by a weekly paper. Afterwards a small firm was found to publish the tale at the usual rate of percentage. Miss Marie Corelli's '"Romance of Two Worlds," her first work, Was nearly lost to the world through an Initial want of belief In its merits. Rider Haggard is said to have had his enormously successful work, "King Solomon's Mines," rejected by two or three publishers before its ul timate appearance, when It "caught on" at once, and was the beginning of his fame.

THE BEE-STING CURE. [Newspaper Article] — Daylesford Advocate, Yandoit, Glenlyon and Eganstown Chronicle — 19 February 1914

THE BEE-STING CURE. The "bee-sting" cure for rheumatism nas been brought into prominence agnin by its adoption, experimentally, at the Belle Vue Hospital, in New York. There, it seems, "this unusual method oE treatment has resulted in a practical cure"; and, tn order that no s.tfferer may allow any craven fear to deter liim from seelting relief, an Kiiglish physician hastens to add to the good news the statement that "the cure is not so painful as might be ex pected. The stings grow less virulent as the patient becomes accustomed to them." It may be that bee-stings be come an acquired tnste; but we can not make up our minds to lceep a bee as a matter of precaution, oven so.— "Westminster Oazctte."

NO BLOTTING-PAPER ALLOWED. [Newspaper Article] — Daylesford Advocate, Yandoit, Glenlyon and Eganstown Chronicle — 19 February 1914

• NO BLOTTING-PAPER ALLOWED. If a registrar of births, deaths and , marriages makes an accidental blot on Ills register, 'lie must not remove it with Ills penft'nife nor erase it .with an Ink-eraser. Somerset House is inflex ible in its decree that the blot must stand as it is. An error or mis-spelt word must be altered in accordance with regula tions. No erasure must be made. If "James" was spelt "Jomes," the letter "o" must have a horizontal line drawn through it—leaving it still legi ble—and the correct name inserted. Blotting-paper must not be applied .to entries in books, as this is also 'against the Registrar-General's rules. A special kind of ink, approved of by a Government chemist, must be used by every registrar. This ink is j known as "Old English Record Ink"; ' the use of any other quality Is looked j upon as a transgression of the official ruleB.

THE VALUE OF PLOUGHING. [Newspaper Article] — Daylesford Advocate, Yandoit, Glenlyon and Eganstown Chronicle — 21 February 1914

THE VALUE OF PLOUGHING. Good cultivation is equal to a dress ing of a good fertiliser. This axiom is strikingly confirmed by the result of some experiments reported by the Government agriculturist at the Cape. The experiment was carried out in the following manner: At the experiment station a piece of land was selected, divided into plots, and uniform]? dressed with a complete fertiliser. A! ter being ploughed, as stated below, n cultivator was run over the land and oats sown withr the drill. The land was then rolled.

A VIGILANT DETECTIVE. It is not long since that a tall middle-aged clergyman was accus tomed to .take a daily walk in Regent street. He would go down one side of the thoroughfare and up the other. It was always, about three o'clock that he passed a shop near the Piccadilly Circus end, the proprietor of which was so struck with the regularity and punctuality < of the person that, after he had seen him pass every tlay for a fortnight, he began to look out for his appearance, as it struck him that there was some method in the clergy man's action. And, sure enough, the tradesman's suspicions were a week later amply verified. He was at his shop-door one wet afternoon when he saw the clergyman coming down the street. Suddenly an extraordinary thing happened. The parson closed his umbrella and threw it on the pave ment. Then ho walked up to a gentle, manly-looking foreigner, placed his hand on his shoulder, and said, "I've a warrant for your arrest." The man showed flglit, but t...
