STRANGER THAN FICTION. [Newspaper Article] — Portland Observer and Normanby Advertiser — 21 May 1914

STRANGER THAN FICTION. (BY PETER.) The latest war cry of the Australian suffragette of "Woman in Parliament" will find little favour with the Tories, but it is the logical carollary to adult suffrage. And as for their fitness to act as representatives it is quite cer tain that on account of the far greater disparity as regards political intelli gence in the sex compared with men, the few that would be required as memn hers a ould be more qualified to act as euch than the many who are entitled to act at the ba'lot box. Now that women are battling side by side with men in every other occupation, why not in this? The ubiquity of the sex re minds one of a pup owned by an o!d Scotchmanr:'s daughter. It was into tirhe pantry, on to the table, and every where it lshould not be, and the. old man threatened to ki!l it. One cold day it dissappeared and could not be found anywhere. The little girl fo'low ed the old man about crying, "Father, where 's me pup? Did you kill me pup? Father, where'...

-Cyoling.. [Conttrihued by the Dunlop Tire Com pany of Australasia] The now famous 12-cylinder Sun. beam racing car has further distinguish-. ed itself in beating records in the 60 h.p. class with 47.7 h.p. A half mile was accomplished, from a flying start, in 15 03 seconds, which indicates a speed of 112 6 m.p h , or 10 miles fast er than the previous record. A still greater improvement on the old figures was the compassing of a mile in 29 83 sec., or at a pace equal to 120.73 m.p.h. The speed reached in the previous record was 106.86 m.p.h. The car was driven by the well known French rac ing motorist, Uhassaigne. According to the "Car" the employ ment of tar upon the roads in Great Britain is so common that very little notice is taken either by motorists or by residents when local authorities adopt it. It is only noticable when, in the course of a long drive, a stretch of desee ted upland road, devoid of e sidences, is reached, where the surface is composed of ordinary macadam. Co...
