Collier's published a story called "Rafferty's Rule" in January 1908.
Stephen may already have seen this citation.

I haven't read the tale and do not know if it was connected to the
emergence of the term "Rafferty's Rules", but future researchers might
appreciate this pointer.

Date: 1908 January 4
Periodical: Collier's
Story: Rafferty's Rule
Auhor: Frank L. Packard
