Instantaneous photographs of one famous specimen showed the full length of a complete stride to bo about twenty-six feet. The hare has not in reality the speed of t?ie dog. ..The dog, on the other hand, does not attain the speed of the horse. The giraffe is said to run at the rate of fifteen yards per second under the most favorable conditions. -The ele phant, going at the rate of two yards a.seecond, carries a weight approximate in to that carried by. six horses.

Metropolitan Notes. [Newspaper Article] — Port Fairy Gazette — 22 January 1914

Metropolitan Notes. Though the daily papers state that the shipowners would not en tertain the idea of a compromise regarding the demand of 2s and 3s per hour of the stevedores, it is well known that is 9d was offered, but the Sydney men refused as they want the 2s and say that they in tend getting it. This is partly the reason why they ignore Mr Hughes and refused to work any overtime at the ordinary rate from 5 p.m. last Friday. The Labor party in the State house has no. love whatever for the Watt government, but when the Corner party, on Tuesday last, .gave' the ministry its first hatpin prick for 1914, by voting against its pro posals, the labor opposition went over to help the Government to serve its own ends. A feature of the march of bands and men through the city to the Tattoo at the Exhibition on Satur day night was the mounted band of some thifty performers. The hor ses'were Well trained and marched beautifully. The big crowd in the streets were greatly taken with the new ...

Sporting. RACING. The Coleraine race club made a profit of 1 55 out of its New Year's day meet. ing. One well-known punter, who backed Polynesia for the Newmarket handicap, previous to the entries coming out, must have got a shock to find this horse was not entered.

THE INDUSTRIOUS MOUSE. [Newspaper Article] — Port Fairy Gazette — 22 January 1914

THE INDUSTRIOUS MOUSE. Many years ago a studious Scotsman named : David HYutton :proved that stores of the profitable energy were go ing to waste among those tiny but active folk, the ordinary domestic mice. In the summer of 1812 I had occa sion (he wrote) to be in Perth. While inspecting the toys and trinkets that were manufactured by the French pris hners in the depot there, .my attention was attracted by a. little toy house with a wheel in the gable that was running rapidly round, impelled by the actir ity of a common mouse. For one shil ling I purchased the house, the -mouse and the wheel. But how to apply half-ounce power, which: is the weight of a mouse, to a useful purpose was the difficulty. At length the manufacture of sewing thread seemed the most practicable. The investigator found that an ordin ary mouse would, run on the average. ten-and a-half miles a day; he had one mouse,that ran the remarkable distance of eighteen miles in that time. A half penny's worth of oatmeal ...
