      The newspaper method is used to merge a weak hive with a strong one.  You take a piece of newspaper place it on top of the brood box of the strong hive, cut a few slits in the paper and  place the hive to be merged on top of the newspaper , thus creating a temporary barrier.  By the time the bees eat through the newspaper the bees will accpet each other.
