MAGAZINE MOTOR CAR VAGARIES OF WRITERS [Newspaper Article] — Myrtleford Mail and Whorouly Witness — 19 February 1914

MAGAZINE MOTOR CAR 1 . - - VAGARIES OF WRITERS - -One of the1 most remarkable pro ducts of the twentieth century is that • triumph of mechanical engineering, ' the Magazine motorcar. It has been remarked that the gentlemen who write the glowing advertisements of "Houses to Let" have obviously never lived in them." It is equally obvious (says Motor News'-') that the worthy folk who write, in the popular magazines, hair curling short stories about motorcars have never driven in them. . It was, of course, inevitable that with the rapid advance of the motorcar in popular favor there should be a cor responding advance in the popular imagination on the subject. In this case the proverb must be reversed, for assuredly the short story-tellers make fiction'stranger than truth. - There are several different models of. the magazine motorcars, but, so far as essentials are concerned, the specification is common to. all. It fre quently has eight cylinders; seldom fewer than six. It has a giganti...

POLICE SAMARITANS " "I think it is right that the public should know they have men ljko this in, their police force," said Captain Jacobsen, a Scandinavian, in telling: the "Daily News" on November 14 of an act of humanity by a sergeant of the city police. Captain;^Jacobsen has charge of a Scandinavian shipping bureau in Fen church street. ••• This little affair, he went on, has so touched me that, whether the sergeant likes it or not, I am going to tell it. Recently this police officer came to me and said he had found in a city street at night an elderly seaman, stranded and destitute. The man was a Dane. The sergeant kindly said he did not want to lock the fellow up. The man was a seaman all right, and locking him up, said the sergeant, would do him no good. The police man had been feeding the man, and had fixed him up in a lodging-house. Captain Jacobsen. explained that of course he got,numbers of such cases, arid had to be careful. But he invited the city,police-: officer to bri...
