“LIFE.”“How Gold Is Won” ;i The methods * that are being used at Poseidon, Vic., the newest Australian goldfield, and the gold-getting methods described in the Book of Genesis are practically the same. So asserts a writer in the current issue of Dr. Fitchett’s 6d magazine, “Life,” the May issue of which is to hand. He adds that the statutes that prevailed at Havilah, the Biblical goldfield, and the Maryborough by-laws are also equally alike and equally useful. It seems, that the article on Poseidon is only one of a number of original Australian articles which are included in the current number of “Life,'’ and we are glad to note that while the scissors and the paste are being used with as great discretion as ever, the departments devoted to original articles arc growing in size. Thus we find, in addition to the goldfield account, and the usual history of the month by Dr. Fitchett, Messrs Noble, Laver, and Troth's expression of opinion as to the personnel of the coming English Eleven ; a finely-written and beautifully illustrated Nature study by “Malurus’’ ; a capital set of “secrets of success’’ by a number of leading business men ; and a batch of short contributions by a score af writers in all parts of Australasia. In addition, there are at least two important series of articles, the Australian rights of which are held by “Life,” to say nothing of Dr. Fitchett’s latest novel, which is running its serial course.
