HOW AUTHORS DIFFER. When literary men undertake to give prescrip- tions they differ quite as much as the ordinary doctors. Mr Walter Besant has been writing on literary hygiene. He recommends a walk of seven or eight miles a day, with frequent change of scene. This horrifies Mr James Payn, who is well known to detest exercise. He says that if he were to walk eight miles he would certainly be driven home, and in a hearse. As to frequent changes, when he wants a "scene he goes and looks at it, but he would as soon think of taking a railway journey anywhere as of undergoing a surgical operation when there is nothing the matter.
